Take Flight with Feather entries: Waveform Generator and Robot Friend FeatherWings #FeatherContest @Hackaday @DigiKey @Adafruit

The Take Flight with Feather Contest is running from now to December 31st – see all the details in the kickoff post!

We’re going to highlight entries posted on Hackaday.io two at a time. Here are today’s entries:

AD9833 Waveform Generator FeatherWing

Cedar Grove Studios has entered an intriguing FeatherWIng with a waveform generator on it.

The AD9833 Waveform Generator FeatherWing is an Adafruit Feather-compatible module. The Waveform Generator produces an op-amp buffered sine, triangle, or square wave output with a practical frequency range of approximately 0 to 300KHz with 0.1Hz resolution.

Frequency accuracy and stability is determined by the on-board 25MHz +/- 100ppm crystal oscillator. Output signal peak-to-peak amplitude is adjustable with a maximum unipolar output of slightly less than 3.3 volts.
Waveform Generator control is via the Feather SPI bus and a custom CircuitPython AD9833 driver. The wing derives its power from the host Feather’s 3.3V power.

Cedar Grove Robot Friend FeatherWing

Another from Cedar Grove (note: you can enter an unlimited number of unique designs as you want).

Perched on the top of a robot chassis, the Cedar Grove Robot Friend FeatherWing passively connects the FeatherWing connections of a PyBadge or PyGamer device with a Crickit FeatherWing. The Crickit provides 3.3V power to the attached PyBadge or PyGamer. All Feather signals are interconnected to accommodate custom alterations to the Crickit module, such as support for IRQ/Busy or sensor modifications.

The Cedar Grove Robot Friend includes a prototype area and a breakout of all Feather pins for further cusomization.

For use ONLY with the Crickit FeatherWing and compatible Feather MCU boards. To date, the prototype has only been tested with the PyGamer and PyBadge. Double-check pin compatibility if you plan to attach or stack other Feather devices.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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.
