A few more #CircuitPython2023

We’ve gotten a couple more #CircuitPython2023 posts! Thank you all! It’s not too late to post your own. Please post yours by January 18th (less than a week!) and email [email protected] to let us know.

Would love a good circuitpython example of rotating a continuous servo with feedback (specifically the parallax 360) to a set number of rotations or a certain angle.

#CircuitPython2023: Better USB and I2C Device Support.

1. For USB Peripherals, more information could be surfaced to CircuitPython about the host. At simplest, are particular protocols (‘keyboard’, ‘mouse’ etc.) connected to a host or not? Also any other information available about the host, what type of computer it is (Mac/Windows/Linux etc.), or just a unique identifier that could be used to set a config profile for that computer. With my CircuitPython keyboard, I have to unplug and replug it every time I boot the computer. I do not have to do this with shop-bought keyboards. I think this is because the USB power comes on before the host is ready to enumerate the keyboard.

2. I would like to be able to make custom I2C devices in CircuitPython. Like SeeSaw, but programmable in Python without special programming hardware or complex tool chains.


#CircuitPython2023 is our annual reflection on the state of CircuitPython. We’d love to hear from you too! See the kick-off post for all of the details. Please post by January 18th.

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.
