Adafruit Graduation Gift Guide 2019: Feather

The Adafruit Feather are a complete line of development boards from Adafruit that are both standalone and stackable. They’re able to be powered by lipo batteries for on-the-go use or by their micro-USB plugs for stationary projects. Feathers are flexible, portable, and as light as their namesake.

We also carry a complete line of accessories and Feather Wings to stack boards and add room for prototyping. At its core, the Adafruit Feather is a complete ecosystem of products – and the best way to get your project flying.


Adafruit WICED WiFi Feather – STM32F205 with Cypress WICED WiFi

The WICED Feather is based on Cypress (formerly Broadcom) WICED (Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices) platform, and is paired up with a powerful STM32F205 ARM Cortex M3 processor running at 120MHz, with support for TLS 1.2 to access sites and web services safely and securely.


Adafruit Feather M0 with RFM95 LoRa Radio – 900MHz – RadioFruit

This is the Adafruit Feather M0 RFM95 LoRa Radio (900MHz). We call these RadioFruits, our take on an microcontroller with a “Long Range (LoRa)” packet radio transceiver with built in USB and battery charging. Its an Adafruit Feather M0 with a 900MHz radio module cooked in! Great for making wireless networks that are more flexible than Bluetooth LE and without the high power requirements of WiFi.


Adafruit 2.13″ Monochrome eInk / ePaper Display FeatherWing – 250×122 Monochrome

We’ve liked these displays for a long time, and they’re just about Feather sized, so wouldn’t a custom e-paper FeatherWing make a ton of sense? This ‘Wing is tested to work with all of our Feathers, from the ESP8266 to the M0. It has built in memory buffering so it can work with chips as small as the ’32u4 and ‘328. It does use a lot of pins: the 3 SPI pins, and up to 4 control pins to manage the SD card slot and SRAM.


Adafruit CRICKIT FeatherWing for any Feather

Plug in any Feather mainboard you want into the center, and you’re good to go! The Crickit is powered by seesaw, our I2C-to-whatever bridge firmware. So you only need to use two I2C data pins to control the huge number of inputs and outputs on the Crickit. All those timers, PWMs, sensors are offloaded to the co-processor.


TFT FeatherWing – 2.4″ 320×240 Touchscreen For All Feathers

A Feather board without ambition is a Feather board without FeatherWings! Spice up your Feather project with a beautiful 2.4″ touchscreen display shield with built in microSD card socket. This TFT display is 2.4″ diagonal with a bright 4 white-LED backlight. You get 240×320 pixels with individual 16-bit color pixel control. It has way more resolution than a black and white 128×64 display. As a bonus, this display comes with a resistive touchscreen attached to it already, so you can detect finger presses anywhere on the screen.


Adafruit Joy FeatherWing for all Feathers

Make a game or robotic controller with this Joy-ful FeatherWing. This FeatherWing has a 2-axis joystick and 5 momentary buttons (4 large and 1 small) so you can turn your feather board into a tiny game controller. This wing communicates with your host microcontroller over I2C so it’s easy to use and doesn’t take up any of your precious analog or digital pins. There is also an optional interrupt pin that can alert your feather when a button has been pressed or released to free up processor time for other tasks.


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.
