Machine learning has come to the ‘edge’ – small microcontrollers that can run a very miniature version of TensorFlow Lite to do ML computations. But you don’t need super complex hardware to start developing your own TensorFlow models! We’ve curated a simple kit to dip your toes into machine learning waters.
This Supercon badge can also be a name badge that is programmed with CircuitPython, it shows up as USB drive, no IDE needed! Displays name, QR codes, and more!
Supercon attendees receive:
Adafruit BrainCraft EDGE BADGE with SAMD51 Cortex M4F processor @ 120MHz, with display, speaker and buttons.
Lithium Ion Polymer Battery with Short Cable – 3.7V 350mAh, double sided tape, and lanyard!
The kit uses our BrainCraft EDGE BADGE as your edge processor. It’s a compact board – it’s credit card sized. It’s powered by one of our favorite chip, the ATSAMD51, with 512KB of flash and 192KB of RAM. We add 2 MB of QSPI flash for file storage, handy for TensorFlow Lite files, images, fonts, sounds, or other assets.
Comes with built in microphone input for micro speech recognition. Our Arduino library has some demos you can get started with to recognize various word pairs like “yes/no”, “up/down” and “cat/dog” and other voice demos. Also includes gesture recognition, and more!
TensorFlow Lite for microcontrollers is very cutting-edge so expect to see a lot of development happening in this area, with lots of code and process changes.
ATSAMD51J19 @ 120MHz with 3.3V logic/power – 512KB of FLASH + 192KB of RAM
2 MB of SPI Flash for storing images, sounds, animations, whatever!
1.8″ 160×128 Color TFT Display connected to its own SPI port
8 x Game/Control Buttons with nice silicone button tops (these feel great)
5 x NeoPixels for badge dazzle, or game score-keeping
Triple-axis accelerometer (motion sensor)
Light sensor, reverse-mount so that it points out the front
Built in buzzer mini-speaker
Mono Class-D speaker driver for 4-8 ohm speakers, up to 2 Watts
LiPoly battery port with built in recharging capability
USB port for battery charging, programming and debugging
Two female header strips with Feather-compatible pinout so you can plug any FeatherWings in
JST ports for NeoPixels, sensor input, and I2C (you can fit I2C Grove connectors in here)
Hackaday Superconference is November 15th, 16th, and 17th in Pasadena, California, USA. The Hackaday Superconference is returning for another 3 full days of technical talks, badge hacking, and hands-on workshops: Eventbrite & hackaday.io
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
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.
