Adafruit Top Secret! December 24, 2019 – Get a clue :) @adafruit #clue

Adafruit Top Secret! December 24, 2019 (video). Get a clue! ..

we wanted to build some projects that have a small screen and a lot of sensors. this board has a 1.3″ 240×240 ips tft display, two buttons, and a ton of sensors:

lsm series 9 dof motion, apds9960 light/color/proximity, pdm microphone, humidity, temperature and barometric environmental sensing.

there’s a qwiic/stemmaqt connector for adding more sensors like pm2.5 air quality and others that were too big to fit on the board.

we’ll be primarily using circuitpython for programming it, but it will also work in arduino. and of course, we’d love to see makecode on it!

after designing it, the board was close enough to micro:bit-shape-size that we moved a few parts to make it fit in micro:bit robots and some projects – the nrf52840 is a big upgrade chip and can do stuff like tensorflow lite for microcontrollers, ble central and peripheral, and more.

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

  1. That board looks SO awesome. And the fact that you’re making it micro:bit size! Could make some really AWESOME robots with it!!

    Thanks for continuing to innovate, Lady Ada!

  2. Hi, this is a great upgrade from the classic micro:bit! Is the pin layout P0-P2, 3V and GND the same? If that is the case, it will work with the Air:bit drone (assuming that was the one you were referring to). High res screen and Baro will be a neat add on for altitude hold and data analysis. Can´t wait to try it!

    Best whishes, Henning, Air:bit creator

  3. @Henning yep! pin layout is the same.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
