MicroPython adds official SAMD21 and SAMD51 MCU support #MicroPython @MicroPython @MicrochipMakes
MicroPython adds mainline support for the Microchip SAMD21 and SAMD51 microcontrollers!
The REPL can be over USB VCP or USART using board specified USART pins (initialized on startup).
Flash usage is flexible. The internal Flash Block Device samd.Flash() is initialized with littlefs1 in frozen module ‘_boot.py‘, 64k for the SAMD21, 128K for the SAMD51.
SPI bus usage is still a work in progress.
You can see the details in the MicroPython GitHub repo on this page.
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.
