NEW PRODUCT – Feather Click Shield by MikroElektronica


MikroElektronika‘s Feather Click Shield will expand your Feather projects to “fly” with more than 750 Click boards available from MikroE. This coterie of Click boards gives you a versatile selection of peripheral devices that can be taken off the shelf and used for prototyping in no time. The shield is designed with two proprietary mikroBUS sockets, allowing all the Click board devices to be interfaced with the Feather boards. It is enough to place an add-on board of your choice on the top of the mikroBUS socket – and click it in. Hence why this add-on board is called Click board – it just clicks!

Note: You should avoid adding Click boards with 5V logic output since these boards potentially can damage input pin 3 on your Feather. MikroElektronika does not appear to offer Python, Circuit/MicroPython, or Arduino libraries for their Click boards. That means you will have to either adapt/port their C libraries or find libraries for each Click and figure out any pinouts.

Feather main board is not included, this is just the Click Shield. Click boards aren’t included either – you can order them from Mikro!

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.
