These prototypes by Terrill Moore, CEO, MCCI look really cool – its an ICE40 Ultra Plus FPGA, with the RISC-V core running on it. If that were not enough, he even put some sensors on there! Looks like a BMP680 Temp/Pressure/Humidity/Gas sensor, a light/color sensor, accelerometer, and maybe a microphone in the middle. There’s also an SMA/uFL connector at the end, is it going to also perform SDR to implement a LoRaWAN transceiver? We.are.curious, looks like quite a beast!
The Adafruit Feather Wing … Is a thing – Adafruit. Not just for our 100+ boards (they’re open-source!), but also for an entire ecosystem of partners and makers, making Wings and Feather-compatibles.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
