ADAFRUIT WEEKLY EDITORIAL ROUND-UP
We’ve got so much happening here at Adafruit that it’s not always easy to keep up! Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered. Each week we’ll be posting a handy round-up of what we’ve been up to, ranging from learn guides to blog articles, videos, and more.
What’s life without a little RISC? This miniature dev board is perfect for small projects: it comes with our favorite connector – the STEMMA QT, a chainable I2C port, WiFi, Bluetooth LE, and plenty of FLASH and RAM memory for many IoT projects. What a cutie pie! Or is it… a QT Py? This diminutive dev board comes with a RISC-V IoT microcontroller, the ESP32-C3!
