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!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
