WipperSnapper adds MCP9601 Thermocouple Amplifier Support #NoCode #IoT @MicrochipMakes
We’ve added support for the MCP9601 (MCP96L01) I2C Thermocouple Amplifier to the latest version of Adafruit.io WipperSnapper, our no-code IoT platform. Thermocouples are super handy for Internet-of-Things projects which require monitoring higher temperatures such as a BBQ/Grill temperature monitor, oven temperature monitor, homebrewing monitor, SMT reflow oven monitor, fridge temperature minder, or a soldering iron temperature monitor.
Simply wire this sensor up to your board (or snap-to-connect with the STEMMA connectors on the Adafruit MCP9601 Breakout), load the latest WipperSnapper firmware on your board and create a new MCP9601 thermocouple amplifier component. Data from the MCP9601 will be sent – without programming!
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.
