NEW GUIDE: Adafruit Feather RP2040 ThinkInk #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit @adafruit @blitzcitydiy
The Feather RP2040 ThinkInk has a 24-pin connector that just about every small-medium size eInk display made these days is compatible with. This Feather will add all the power supply support circuitry and level shifting so you can attach your favorite display – we’ve tested it with up to 5.6″ sized 7-color ACeP displays. Driver support is available for both Arduino and CircuitPython.
The Adafruit Feather RP2040 ThinkInk guide has everything you need to get started with using the Feather. There’s pages for overview, pinouts, power management, CircuitPython essentials, Arduino, u2if firmware, factory reset and resources for download.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
