A well thought-out compromise between the QT Py and Feather RP2040 boards. If you need the GPIO but not the size then ItsyBitsy RP2040 is the right choice.
Adafruit’s latest RP2040 board is a compromise. It is not as small as the QT Py RP2040 nor is it as feature rich as their Feather RP2040 but it does offer a great selection of GPIO pins in a compact form factor. The $10 ItsyBitsy RP2040 is the ideal for those that need lots of GPIO pins in a small package. Continuing Adafruit’s range of ItsyBitsy boards, the RP2040 model brings the powerful Raspberry Pi RP2040 SoC to the form factor.

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.
