NEW GUIDE: Adafruit Qwiik / STEMMA QT 5 Port Hub #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit @adafruit
Five STEMMA QT ports in one small package!
Qwiic, or STEMMA QT, is a very efficient way to quickly prototype an idea, but a lot of Qwiic/Stemma QT driver boards only have one port, and devices have two ports but that’s only good for chaining. Maybe you want to reduce your I2C line capacitance by having a star formation instead of a looooong chain. Or maybe it’s just easier for your mechanical layout to have them closer to a central point. The Adafruit Qwiik / STEMMA QT5-Port Passive Hub board has 5 vertical JST SH 1mm connectors in a row, all with the power, ground and SDA/SCL pins connected.
The Adafruit Qwiik/STEMMA QT 5 Port Hub guide has an overview, pinouts page, and downloads resources. Usage is as simple as plugging in multiple STEMMA QT devices, so the guide is short and quick, providing you with details about the board.

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.
