NEW GUIDE: Digital Circuits 7: Microcontrollers, how do they work? @MicrochipMakes #AdafruitLearningSystem
What’s inside that large chip on the Adafruit Metro Classic and Arduino Uno compatibles? Take a peek at the coppery picture below, which is the silicon chip magnified.
In our new guide, we take a tour of the Microchip/Atmel ATmega328, looking at each significant functional piece.
Understand the pieces of the chip we all use in our microcontroller projects, see the guide here.

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.
