The Adafruit FT232H breakout is a great way to add GPIOs and an I2C or SPI bus to your computer. There are lotsofAdafruitbreakoutboards that use I2C or SPI and have been ported to Python for the Raspberry Pi & BeagleBone Black, so can you use those boards with the FT232H breakout too? Yes, you can! With a few simple changes you can make sensors and displays built with the Adafruit Python GPIO library work with the FT232H breakout too. Follow this guide to learn how to connect SPI / I2C devices and update their code to work the FT232H breakout!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
