Binho, maker of the Nova USB multiprotocol USB host adapter, has released two interface boards to make it easier to work with breadboards and boards in the Feather form factor.
The breadboard breakout provides a small, easy to use board which fits the center channel of common breadboards. This makes wiring to other devices much easier. Shown below is the adapter used in a project by Jeremy Cook interfacing to the Adafruit .54” Quad Alphanumeric FeatherWing display. The display communicates with the world via I2C, and in Jeremy’s opinion “represents one of the most interesting use cases for the Binho USB Host adapter: sending I2C (and likely SPI) signals directly.”
The Qwiic connect board makes it a snap to use breakout boards with Qwiic, STEMMA QT or Seeed Studio Grove connectors.
Finally, the Feather Interface Board provides a Feather form factor interface to plug onto Feather compatible boards or onto a multi FeatherWing adapter.
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
