Adafruit Feather takes flight with the SparkFun Thing Plus – Artemis @sparkfun @adafruit
Adafruit Feather takes flight with the SparkFun Thing Plus – Artemis. Latest board, Feather-compatible! This is the fifth SparkFun Adafruit Feather-compatible board (not including the Particle boards which are Feather format as well).
“To make the Thing Plus even easier to use, we’ve moved a few pins around to make the board Feather compatible…”
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. FeatherWings are stacking boards and add functionality and room for prototyping. At its core, the Adafruit Feather is a complete ecosystem of products – and the best way to get your project flying.
All Adafruit products are open source. Adafruit encourages other companies to utilize this form factor to maximize compatibility with dozens of pre-existing boards.
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.
