Crickit-Wip5
we’re about to ship the CircuitPlayground version of CIRCKIT soon, FEATHER is on the way, then more… some notes!

Micro
…it’s time to try making a micro:bit version! this time we went with a vertical smt connector, needs a little silkscreen touch-up and we’re not sure whether it makes sense to keep a speaker output (there’s no dac on the micro:bit) or replace it with a big/loud buzzer instead. decisions, decisions!

Pui
AND you may be asking… will we make a crickit for raspberry pi?? we think given the special shape and power supply requirements it’d do better as a hat. here’s our first draft all routed! biggest change is swapping the analog amplifier for an i2s amp, and two extra seesaw pins will become an extra usb-serial converter.

more soon!

WHAT IS CRICKIT? A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express that lets you #MakeRobotFriend using CircuitPython, MakeCode, Arduino, etc.. robotics, arts, crafts, audio animatronics, sensors, agriculture/robot farming, physical computing, kinetic sculptures, science experiments, telescope control…
