Analog Devices, known for their reliable and well-documented sensor chips – has a high precision and high resolution temperature sensor on the market, and we’ve got a breakout to make it easy to use! The Analog Devices ADT7410 gets straight to the point – it’s an I2C temperature sensor, with 16-bit 0.0078°C temperature resolution and 0.5°C temperature tolerance. Wire it up to your microcontroller or single-board computer to get reliable temperature readings with ease
You’ve been burning the midnight oil cobbling your latest maker project. Wait, what time is it? Whether you’re a night owl (like Minerva!) or an early bird getting the worm, don’t forget to stay hydrated as a beverage goblin should! And what better way to keep your workspace free of condensation stains than with this durable and elegant PCB Coaster featuring the Adafruit Logo!
This coaster features the logo of your favorite DIY electronics company on sturdy 100x100mm 2mm thick FR4 clad in the gothiest black silkscreen – the design is gold ENIG for a lovely non-oxidizing look. Also packaged are four bumpers for a lil’ extra stability, stick them on the bottom for a good grip.
You’re probably really used to microcontroller boards with USB, but what about a dev board with two? Two is more than one, so that makes it twice as good! And the Adafruit Feather RP2040 with USB Host is definitely double-the-fun of our other Feather RP2040 boards, with a USB Type A port on the end for connecting USB devices to.
Now you might be thinking “hey waitaminute, the RP2040 doesn’t have two USB port peripherals???” and you’d be correct! But what it does have is a nifty PIO peripheral that can be (ab)used to emulate a USB host peripheral. You get to keep the main USB port for uploading, debugging, and data communication, while at the same time sending and receiving data to just-about-any USB device. This work is originally by sekigon on GitHub, and if you’re using Pico SDK that’s still the recommended library to use.

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.
