Adafruit also offers a CRICKIT board that is compatible with your micro:bit, making adding a motor, servo, relay, or LED strip as easy as plugging the micro:bit into the CRICKIT’s edge connector port. The board also features capacitive touch breakout pads and a Class D 3-watt max audio amplifier with speaker connector.
Each board has various strengths and capabilities. HackSpace rated the Motor Driver V2 board 8/10 and the Adafruit Crickit for micro:bit 10/10!
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.
