NEW GUIDE: Adafruit Neo Trinkey #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit @adafruit
It’s half USB Key, half Adafruit Trinket…it’s Neo Trinkey!
Adafruit Neo Trinkey is the circuit board with a Trinket M0 heart and four RGB NeoPixels for customizable glow. We were inspired by some USB key flashlight boards that would turn any battery pack into an LED torch. So we thought, hey what if we made something like that but with fully programmable color NeoPixels? And this is what we came up with!
The Adafruit Neo Trinkey guide has everything you need to get started with your new board. There’s an overview, pinouts, CircuitPython and Arduino basics, and resource downloads. There are examples of how to use the NeoPixels and the capacitive touch pads in both CircuitPython and Arduino.
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.
