NEW PRODUCT – Raspberry Pi Pico Adapter PCB for Keyboard FeatherWing

From the folks at Solder Party comes this adapter designed specifically to drive the Keyboard FeatherWing with a Raspberry Pi Pico. It can be easily soldered using the SMD pads or using pin headers to plug the Pico into the Adapter.

The Pico boards are quite handy and economical, so they make a great complement to Feather boards for the FeatherWing. No extra components or soldering are needed for assembly.

Heads up: Because the Pico only has 3 analog pins, only A0, A1, and A5 of the Keyboard FeatherWing can actually be used to read analog values.


You will receive the Adapter board and pin headers that can be used to plug the adapter into the Keyboard FeatherWing. The FeatherWing Keyboard and Pico are not included, but we carry ’em in the store!

Warning: This revision of the adapter has a small HW bug where the two BAT header pins are not connected together. The pins are not used by the Pico, so they don’t affect any functionality. However, if you decide to use the BAT pin with the Keyboard FeatherWing plugged in, you have to short the two pins together with a piece of wire or a solder blob.

For the Keyboard FeatherWing, there is support for both Arduino and CircuitPython, with example code for each.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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, 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.
