Once you’ve got your Feather board up and running you probably want to have some custom circuiry attached. Of course, you can start with a breadboard setup and that will work just fine for prototyping. But, once you know what you want, a proto feather can keep the components compact and secure.
We have two options for prototyping, both are “FeatherWings” – add on boards that can be plugged right into any Feather.
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.
