Use this 25 cm long cable with our 40-pin FPC to 2×20 IDC Plug and Socket adapter PCBs to extend your Raspberry Pi’s GPIO capabilities. Note you’ll have to keep an eye on where Pin 1 is on the ribbon cable, on the adapter PCBs, and your HAT or Bonnet of choice.
Introducing the TinyS2 – The Tiny Mighty ESP32-S2 development board in the TinyPICO format! This board features the powerful ESP32-S2, a single-core Tensilica processor with WiFi and native USB so it can run Arduino or Circuitpython code.
If your kitty’s paws are going to walk all over your keyboard, you at least want to be able to walk all over kitty paws. Get ready to clacky to your heart’s content with an adorable Black Aluminum Kitty Paw Keycap with Translucent Silicone Toe Beans for your next mechanical keyboard or NeoKey project.
It’s half USB Key, half Adafruit Trinket, half mechanical keeb…it’s NeoKey Trinkey, the circuit board with a Trinket M0 heart, a NeoPixel glow, and a Cherry MX-compatible. We were inspired by single-key macro pads we’ve seen. So we thought, hey what if we made something like that that plugs right into your computer’s USB port, with a fully programmable color NeoPixel? And this is what we came up with!
It’s half USB Key, half Adafruit Trinket, half rotary encoder…it’s Rotary Trinkey, the circuit board with a Trinket M0 heart, a NeoPixel glow, and a rotary encoder body. We were inspired by this project from TodBot where a rotary encoder was soldered onto a QT Py. So we thought, hey what if we made something like that that plugs right into your computer’s USB port, with a fully programmable color NeoPixel? And this is what we came up with!

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.
