Motors make the world spin around, and now you can easily control motors with MicroPython and thePCA9685 DC Motor & Stepper driver! Simple DC motors can moved forwards and backwards, perfect for moving the wheels on a robot or vehicle. Stepper motors can precisely move in small increments, like moving the nozzle of a 3D printer up and down with millimeter accuracy. Using a simple MicroPython library and the PCA9685 DC Motor & Stepper driver board you can drive both DC motors and stepper motors and add movement to any project.
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.
