It may not feel like it, but Graduations are right around the corner. Treat your Grad (or your grad-tastic self 😉 ) to some Adafruit goodies, CircuitPython style!
Not too sure what CircuitPython is all about? This guide has got you covered:
CircuitPython is a programming language designed to simplify experimenting and learning to program on low-cost microcontroller boards. It makes getting started easier than ever with no upfront desktop downloads needed. Once you get your board set up, open any text editor, and get started editing code. It’s that simple.
CircuitPython is designed to run on microcontroller boards. A microcontroller board is a board with a microcontroller chip that’s essentially an itty-bitty all-in-one computer. The board you’re holding is a microcontroller board! CircuitPython is easy to use because all you need is that little board, a USB cable, and a computer with a USB connection. But that’s only the beginning.
AdaBox006 – CircuitPython is the perfect gift for folks who are just getting started in the world of DIY electronics. It’s an excellent addition to our family of DIY projects, plus it’s a solderless pack. This is also a great way to test the waters of AdaBox before committing to a subscription.
Please note! This is NOT the subscription version of AdaBox! This is ONLY AdaBox006 that shipped out to AdaBox subscribers in Dec 2017. This version does not include free shipping. If you’d like to subscribe to AdaBox, please visit the AdaBox page! (read more)
Circuit Playground Express is the next step towards a perfect introduction to electronics and programming. We’ve taken the original Circuit Playground Classic and made it even better! Not only did we pack even more sensors in, we also made it even easier to program.
Adafruit Feather M0 Express – Designed for CircuitPython – ATSAMD21 Cortex M0: We love all our Feathers equally, but this Feather is very special. It’s our first Feather that is specifically designed for use with CircuitPython! CircuitPython is our beginner-oriented flavor of MicroPython – and as the name hints at, its a small but full-featured version of the popular Python programming language specifically for use with circuitry and electronics.(read more)
Adafruit ItsyBitsy M0 Express – for CircuitPython & Arduino IDE: What’s smaller than a Feather but larger than a Trinket? It’s an Adafruit ItsyBitsy M0 Express! Small, powerful, with a rockin’ ATSAMD21 Cortex M0 processor running at 48 MHz – this microcontroller board is perfect when you want something very compact, but still with a bunch of pins. (read more)
Adafruit Trinket M0 – for use with CircuitPython & Arduino IDE: The Adafruit Trinket M0 may be small, but do not be fooled by its size! It’s a tiny microcontroller board, built around the Atmel ATSAMD21, a little chip with a lot of power. We wanted to design a microcontroller board that was small enough to fit into any project, and low cost enough to use without hesitation. Perfect for when you don’t want to give up your expensive dev-board and you aren’t willing to take apart the project you worked so hard to design. It’s our lowest-cost CircuitPython programmable board! (read more)
Adafruit METRO M0 Express – designed for CircuitPython – ATSAMD21G18: Metro is our series of microcontroller boards for use with the Arduino IDE. This new Metro M0 Express board looks a whole lot like our original Metro 328, but with a huge upgrade. Instead of the ATmega328, this Metro features a ATSAMD21G18 chip, an ARM Cortex M0+. It’s our first Metro that is designed for use with CircuitPython! CircuitPython is our beginner-oriented flavor of MicroPython – and as the name hints at, its a small but full-featured version of the popular Python programming language specifically for use with circuitry and electronics.
Not only can you use CircuitPython, but the Metro M0 is also usable in the Arduino IDE. (read more)
Blinka the CircuitPython Temporary Tattoo: From Ötzi the Iceman to Gucci Mane’s ice cone face tat, tattooing has been a cultural practice for thousands of years. Whether it’s in commemoration or self expression, skin art can be a big decision! Here at Adafruit we’re definitely not afraid of permanence, but needles can be pretty scary!
Which is why we love this Blinka the CircuitPython Temporary Tattoo – this safe, non-permanent, easily removable tattoo is vibrant, nicely sized, and looks great on everybody. We slapped one on, and we’re pleased to report the tattoo lasted a week while looking good. (read more)
Blinka the CircuitPython Limited Edition Enamel Pin: This Blinka the CircuitPython Enamel Pin is beautifully designed and constructed with vivid colors and a cast metal body with butterfly cast. We love the contrast of her bright blue eye against the deep purple and pink body.
