The Binho Nova Multi-Protocol USB Host Adapter allows you to interface your computer directly to hardware circuits. This device is powered by the USB connection to the host PC and is also able to provide downstream power to test circuits. The following guide details how to use a Binho Nova with CircuitPython libraries to interface with sensors and components via I2C (Inter-Integrated Circuit), SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface), GPIO’s (General Purpose Input/Output), or UART (Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter).
See how easy it is to use the Binho Nova to connect to sensors using Python and CircuitPython Blinka on your desktop/laptop – no microcontroller required.
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.
