NEW GUIDE: Which CircuitPython Board is Right for You? #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit #CircuitPython @Adafruit
Find the perfect CircuitPython board for you!
There are so many Adafruit microcontrollers that are compatible with CircuitPython, choosing a board can be overwhelming. Perhaps you have a feature in mind that you’re looking for. This helps narrow it down, but there may be multiple boards with that feature. So what can you do? Check out the new Which CircuitPython Board is Right for You? guide!
This guide breaks down the CircuitPython compatible Adafruit microcontrollers into feature categories. Within those categories, each board has text explaining its other features to explain why you might choose it over another board.
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.
