These two Short Female Headers alone are, well, lonely. But pair them with any of our Feather boards and you’re in business!
These headers are particularly cute and tiny with a body height of just 5.0 mm they are the best way to minimize the amount of space your Feather project takes up, but still maintain that flexible configuration. “Normal” socket headers have an 8.5mm body height so this saves you a whole 3.5mm (hey it adds up!) For ultimate skinniness, you may need to cut the male headers on your Featherwings down by a few mm.
What do they do? They get soldered on either side of the Feather board. Now you can plug in FeatherWings to add more capability to your portable project. Unlike our Feather Stacking Headers, they aren’t designed to ‘stack’, but they’re way more compact.
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.
