CircuitPython used to run satellites with deep sleep mode #CircuitPython #Space @maholli404
Doctoral candidate Max Holliday writes on Twitter about using CircuitPython on satellites:
I love CircuitPython – enough to even run my on-orbit PyCubed satellites with it – and now that my deep sleep code for D/E51 boards is in the main branch, the possibilities are endless! Now all your Adafruit M4 projects can last forever sipping 0.5mA. Thanks for the help @hierophect.
If CircuitPython can be used by satellites, what can it do for your project?
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.
