Prototyping the NeoTrellis M4 #ManufacturingMonday (video)
This timelapse shows the prototyping an early version of the NeoTrellis M4 board.
The NeoTrellis M4 is an all-in-one Audio board powered by the SAMD51, a Cortex M4 core running at 120 MHz. This comes with CircuitPython and Arduino support, and has a roomy 512KB of flash and 192KB of SRAM, plus a full 8MB flash chip providing tons of space for files and audio clips. On the front side is a 4×8 grid of elastomer button pads with a NeoPixel nestled in the center of each one. You can read any/all button presses simultaneously thanks to the fully diode’d matrix, and also set each button color to any of 24-bit colors. This board is a beast!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
