If you’re building an IoT project and need to send data back-and-forth, the WiFi module built into newer Pi’s should be fine for most cases. But, what if you find WiFi does not have the long-range you need? If you’re deploying your project somewhere more remotely, without WiFi or a strong cellular network, like a rural area, you’ll need another option. Something that can be deployed quickly with no overhead setup and that will transmit/receive over a long distance.
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.
When it’s time to order components for your electronic product, where else is there to go but Digi-Key? With literally millions of parts available, its a one-stop-candy-shop from prototype to production.
It’s half USB Key, half Adafruit Trinket M0, half APDS9960 breakout…it’s Proximity Trinkey, the circuit board with a Trinket M0 heart, APDS9960 Proximity, Light, RGB, and Gesture Sensor, and two RGB NeoPixels for a customizable glow. We wanted to make it super-easy to add one of our most popular combination-sensors to any computer with a USB port and this one is ready to go in an instant.
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.
