V for Victory, also Vivacious and Very-good-code! Which is exactly how we feel about CircuitPython Version 5. We’re pleased to announce the latest major revision of CircuitPython. CircuitPython 5 features many improVements and enhancements to displayio, including grayscale and e-paper displays, extensive additions and changes to nRF52840 and BLE support, and PWM audio support.
Make a gorgeous video set up with this high-resolution 10″, IPS, 1024×768, plug-n-play HDMI screen kit with a display driver board that’s perfect for building into projects like arcade cabinets. The display’s 4:3 aspect ratio makes it a great upgrade for retro gaming builds. Or simply use it as a big ol’ dazzling display for your Raspberry Pi, or any computer with HDMI output.

Give your ItsyBitsy project a lift with the Adafruit AirLift Bitsy Add-On – a daughterboard that lets you use the powerful ESP32 as a WiFi co-processor. You probably have your favorite ItsyBitsy (like the Itsy’ M4) that comes with its own set of awesome peripherals and lots of libraries. But it doesn’t have WiFi built in! So lets give that chip a best friend, the ESP32. This chip can handle all the heavy lifting of connecting to a WiFi network and transferring data from a site, even if its using the latest TLS/SSL encryption (it has root certificates pre-burned in).
Following up on 2018’s most-successful-skull-shaped development board, we UPPED our -skull-shaped development board game, and re-spinned (re-spun?) the HalloWing M0 into the HalloWing M4 with MORE of everything that makes this the spoooookiest dev board.

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.
