The nRF9160 Feather is now on GroupGets #Feather @GroupGets @jaredwolff @NordicTweets
The nRF9160 Feather by Jared Wolff (aka Circuit Dojo LLC) is an electronics development board featuring a Nordic Semiconductor nRF9160-SICA chip. This chip is capable of both CAT M1 LTE and NB-IoT for communication with the outside world. It’s compatible primarily with Zephyr via the nRF Connect SDK. Other toolchains and languages are coming soon. The board is also certified Open Source Hardware.
The nRF9160 Feather is a true Feather and then some. As you would expect, it works well across both USB power and with LiPoly batteries.
The board is designed to be nice to your batteries. Not only can you take advantage of Nordic’s advanced power states, but you can also put the device into a low power standby state. Laboratory measurements are putting that mode at about 2µA of current. 2µA!

Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
