New Products 10/19/22 Featuring Adafruit PiCowbell Proto for Pico – Reset Button & STEMMA QT

We’ve got the New nEw NEW for you right here:


Adafruit QSPI DIP Breakout Board – W25Q16 – 16 MBit 2 MByte – W25Q16JVSSIQ

For many modern and powerful chips like the RP2040, ESP32, RT10xx and STM32 series microcontrollers, designers can save money and reduce the number of chip options by not including building in the Flash memory used to store code and resources. Instead, an external QSPI Flash memory chip is wired up that can provide up to 16 Megabytes (a.k.a 128 Megabits) of memory. It’s not as fast as if it were on the microcontroller internal bus but with Quad SPI I/O and some clever caching by the chip designer, it’s pretty effective!

Adafruit QSPI DIP Breakout Board – W25Q64 – 64 MBit 8 MByte – W25Q64JVSSIQ

To make prototyping and designing with QSPI flash a little easier, we designed these breakouts that convert the wide 8-SOIC packages to a cute 0.3″ wide DIP. We find these handy when testing out different flash sizes, or if we just want to add more storage memory to a project.

Adafruit QSPI DIP Breakout Board – W25Q128 – 128 MBit 16 MByte – W25Q128JVSSIQ

This is the W25Q128JVSSIQ, a 3.3V power and logic 128-Megabit / 16 Mega-byte chip. Note that the Q at the end means that the Quad Enable bit is permanently set in the status register. If you’re using this in QSPI mode, then it’ll work right out of the box. If you’re using this in SPI mode, the ‘hold’ and ‘write protect’ pins don’t do anything, so just connect them to 3.3V.

Adafruit QT 5V to 3V Shifter Breakout – STEMMA QT / Qwiic

If you’re hankerin’ to use the new Qwiic / Stemma QT standard for your next project – but you’re still using a classic Arduino UNO or other 5V microcontroller, this board is designed for you! Note that Adafruit QT boards are all 3V and 5V safe but many other Qwiic and other I2C devices are not 5V safe or compatible. That means that if you use wires to connect a Qwiic board to a 5V microcontroller you risk damaging your shiny new I2C sensor with over-high voltages. Unless, of course you have one of these Adafruit QT 5V to 3V Shifter Breakouts.
