You know all of those used ATmega32U4s you have laying around the workbench? That’s how this idea started – I designed a breakout board to test them. The designed for the SUPEROLED8 is based on my tool, the OLED Backpack for the USB Tester (a USB power measurement device) since it’s a proven design. Completely open source, this little board gives a hardware starting point with plenty of options. From a simple breakout board, it has turned into development board that I hope will inspire other projects.
As I work on this, I hope to improve the demo firmware, provide additional examples, finish designing the 3D printed case, and look into designing add-on boards.
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.
