Library for the Adafruit alphanumeric backpack (using the HT16K33 chip)
I was putting together a project using 4 Adafruit featherwing LED backpacks (Adafruit product id 3130). That would give me a 16 character display. I would be using 4 i2c addresses, and wanted to hide the details of the i/o from my main sketch. Thus I thought I would build a library to handle the job. I used some of the code from the Adafruit libries, and wrote the rest. My library goes into a folder called AlphaDisp within the libraries folder.
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.
