Loop Research releases a power and a relay board in Feather format #Feather #Power #Switching

Loop Research in Mountain View, California has released two circuit boards in the Feather form factor.

PowerWing is a FeatherWing that is able to power a Feather platform anywhere 6-36V is available. The onboard TI LMZ4201H integrated buck converter is able to efficiently convert the input voltage into 5V at up to 1A of current output. This means there is enough power to supply a wide array of multiple Feather devices simultaneously. More info.

SwitchWing is a FeatherWing for powering high current devices from your Feather. Based around the ST VNE5010AH high side driver, SwitchWing can switch 5-28VDC at up to 20A. The driver itself is protected against common faults, and provides the ability to monitor the output current and faults from a Feather ADC pin. Great for driving loads in automotive and LED lighting. More info.

Both boards are available on Tindie now. Go to the Loop Research page for more information on both.


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.
