Part two of Adafruit’s Holiday Gift Guide series features CircuitPython! Get the maker in your life something CircuitPython based and unlock the wonders of this simple to use programming! Or better yet Make something for the Getter in your life!
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.
Feeling the bite of the cold and wind outside? Why not slither indoors and snuggle up with your very own cuddly Python? What? A snake?!
Yesssssssssss, this AdaBox is Python powered!
You’ll soon find yourself charmed by the power and flexibility of CircuitPython, not to mention its ease of use. And the Python strikes fast — with no need for a compiler or IDE, you’ll get your code up and running on the board quicker than ever. We think once you try it you’ll be hooked by how easy it is.
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 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.
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!
Adafruit GEMMA M0 – Miniature wearable electronic platform – The Adafruit Gemma M0 is a super small microcontroller board, with just enough built-in to create many simple projects. It may look small and cute: round, about the size of a quarter, with friendly alligator-clip sew pads. But do not be fooled! The Gemma M0 is incredibly powerful! We’ve taken the same form factor we used for the original ATtiny85-based Gemma and gave it an upgrade. The Gemma M0 has swapped out the lightweight ATtiny85 for a ATSAMD21E18 powerhouse.
The Gemma M0 will super-charge your wearables! It’s just as small, and it’s easier to use, so you can do more.
The most exciting part of the Gemma M0 is that while you can use it with the Arduino IDE, we are shipping it with CircuitPython on board.
