Everyone likes Consumer Reports and other publications which research comparisons between products. Unfortunately, such comparisons are rarely found for electronics. Having published an impromptu chart comparing Wi-Fi solutions for Microcontrollers in 2015, I found the appetite for comparing apples to apples in Wi-Fi. Recently, I updated the chart, adding new Wi-Fi chips and modules now on the market. I also created an additional chart listing commercial products using Wi-Fi chips, many of which are, wait for it, good ol’ Adafruit products!
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.
