NEW PRODUCT – SparkFun Qwiic or Stemma QT SHIM for Raspberry Pi / SBC


The SparkFun Qwiic or Stemma QT SHIM for Raspberry Pi is a small, easily removable breakout that easily adds a 4-pin JST SH pin (Stemma QT or Qwiic) connector to your Raspberry Pi. The SHIM design allows you to plug directly to the Pi’s I2C bus with no soldering required, and the thin PCB design allows for it to be sandwiched on your Pi GPIO with other bonnets or HATs! The Qwiic SHIM works great if you want to add a Qwiic connector to your Pi simply and easily with no soldering required.

The Qwiic SHIM uses a unique friction-based connector that wedges itself onto the GPIO header for a secure, solderless connection. It has a single JST SH connector that connects to your Pi’s I2C bus (SDA, SCL, 5V and Ground). The SHIM also has a 3.3V regulator so it will work with all Qwiic or Stemma QT devices.

You can use it with any other Linux single board computer that has ‘Pi compatible pinout’ (there’s a lot!) and then check out Blinka, our Python interface library so you can use our huge collection of CircuitPython libraries on SBC computers using Python!

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.
