For the month of June, hang out with Digi-Key in the Adafruit Discord server! (http://adafru.it/digikeydiscord) Digi-Key, Adafruit, and the maker/pro-engineer community will come together to discuss: electronics, Digi-Key & Adafruit history, and more!

We’re huge fans of Digi-Key at Adafruit (we buy stuff from them all the time & they’re one of the top Adafruit distributors). In addition to great discussions, they’ll be running promotions, giveaways and more, so please tune in!

Introducing Adafruit ItsyBitsy M4

Adafruit products 3800 quarter ORIG 2018 06

Choo choo! ItsyBitsy M4 Comin’ Thru! What’s smaller than a Feather but larger than a Trinket? It’s an Adafruit ItsyBitsy M4 Express featuring the Microchip ATSAMD51! Small, powerful, with a ultra fast ATSAMD51 Cortex M4 processor running at 120 MHz – this microcontroller board is perfect when you want something very compact, with a ton of horsepower and a bunch of pins. This Itsy is like a bullet train, with it’s 120MHz Cortex M4 with floating point support and 512KB Flash and 192KB RAM. Your code will zig and zag and zoom, and with a bunch of extra peripherals for support, this will for sure be your favorite new chipset.

ItsyBitsy M4 Express is only is only 1.4″ long by 0.7″ wide, but has 6 power pins, 23 digital GPIO pins (7 of which can be analog in, 2 x 1 MSPS analog out DACs, and 18 x PWM out). It’s the same chip as the Adafruit Metro M4 but really really small. So it’s great once you’ve finished up a prototype on a Metro M4 or (the upcoming) Feather M4, and want to make the project much smaller. It even comes with 2MB of SPI Flash built in, for data logging, file storage, or CircuitPython code.
