NEW GUIDE: Adafruit MicroSD SPI or SDIO Card Breakout Board @adafruit @circuitpython #circuitpython #AdafruitLearningSystem
Micro SD cards and microcontrollers go together like micro-peanutbutter-and-jelly: SD cards are inexpensive, durable, easy to find at any shop, come in many sizes and can plug into any computer using a common SD card reader. That makes them perfect for microcontroller storage and retrieval – whether it’s images, fonts, GIFs, audio files, or sensor logs.
By supporting both SPI and SDIO, this breakout board enables higher performance in your projects that use SD cards.
Besides introducing this new breakout board, this guide shows how to make the most of it with new features in the alpha releases of CircuitPython 6!
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.
