Quickly get started with an Adafruit nRF52840 board using included CircuitPython demos! The Adafruit nRF52840 has joined the growing list of CircuitPython compatible boards. It features a Cortex M4 chip with Bluetooth Low Energy. We’ve added BLE support to CircuitPython which makes it super simple to get started!
CircuitPython is Python that runs on microcontrollers. It’s designed to lower the barrier for entry to learning programming and electronics. If you’re new to CircuitPython, please check out the Welcome to CircuitPython guide to find out how to get started with CircuitPython.
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.
