Guide Updated: CircuitPython on Linux and Raspberry Pi #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit #RaspberryPi #CircuitPython @Adafruit
We’ve updated Adafruit Blinka, the CircuitPython compatibility layer for Raspberry Pi and other single board computers to support PWMOut, a part of pulseio. This means it’s now simple to pulse an LED or control a servo from your Raspberry Pi! To that end, we’ve updated the CircuitPython on Linux and Raspberry Pi guide.
The new PWM Outputs & Servos page walks through what is involved with pulsing an LED or controlling a servo on a Raspberry Pi. The page includes wiring diagrams for both, and everything you need to install to get started. There is example code for pulsing an LED, as well as example code for two servo control options.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
