he new and improved Programmer Shield is essentially a USB-JTAG converter that gives advanced users complete access to the Photon’s memory space. It supports openOCD and the WICED SDK, and is built around the FT2232H high speed USB FIFO.
Unlike the previous Programmer Shield, it is fully standalone and requires no third-party programmers.
In addition to providing a JTAG interface, this shield can also act as a USB to Serial converter. You can also use this shield as a generic JTAG programmer for your other projects!
Designed for use with the Photon, backwards compatible with the Core.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
