NEW GUIDE: Adding a Single Board Computer to Blinka #AdafruitLearningSystem #Blinka @CircuitPython @Adafruit @MakerMelissa

A new guide in the Adafruit Learning System: Adding a Single Board Computer to Blinka. This guide covers the second part of everything you need to know to add a board to Blinka:

So you have a new board, that you want to get working with Blinka, our CircuitPython library compatibility layer for Single Board Computers, or SBCs. Adding a board to Blinka is a 2-part process with the first step being to add it to PlatformDetect so that Blinka knows what board it is working with.

In our PlatformDetect guide, we went over the steps needed to get your chip and board correctly detected so that Blinka knew what it was working with. In this guide, we will go over the second part to get your board functioning on Blinka.

This guide goes over everything that’s left to get your board working with Blinka including:

  • Adding the Chip and Board files
  • Getting GPIO working
  • Getting I2C, SPI, and UART working

See the new guide now…


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.
