Say hello to our 1.14″ 240×135 Color TFT Display w/ MicroSD Card Breakout – we think it’s T-F-Terrific! It’s the size of your thumbnail, with glorious 240×135 high res pixel color. This very very small display is only 1.14″ diagonal, packed with RGB pixels, for making very small high-density displays.
Introducing the TinyS3 – The Tiny Mighty ESP32-S3 development board in the TinyPICO format! Now with a u.FL connector instead of an onboard antenna, for the times when you want to connect an external antenna for longer radio range, or for putting your S3 boards inside a case/enclosure.
Introducing the ProS3 – The Ultimate Pro ESP32-S3 Development Board now with a u.FL connector instead of an onboard antenna, for the times when you want to connect an external antenna for longer radio range, or for putting your S3 boards inside a case/enclosure.
Introducing the FeatherS3 – The pro ESP32-S3 Development Board in the Feather Format now with a u.FL connector instead of an onboard antenna, for the times when you want to connect an external antenna for longer radio range, or for putting your S3 boards inside a case/enclosure.
What new iteration of NeoPixel strip is this? Roll out the black light and disco ball! It’s an Adafruit High Density NeoPixel Ultraviolet Strip with 60 UV 5050-sized LEDs per meter! Each order comes as a single one meter long strip. If you order multiple meters, you’ll get that many individual 1 meter pieces.
Tip-Ring-Ring-Sleeve style audio cables are often used for situations where you want stereo audio and then an extra contact for a microphone input. For example, headsets for cell phones. Also called TRRS jacks for short, they’re also handy if you happen to want to use common audio cables for low-speed data transmission with power, ground and two data lines.
Make a game or robotic controller for any I2C microcontroller or microcomputer with this tiny gamepad breakout board. This design has a 2-axis thumb joystick and 6 momentary buttons (4 large and 2 small). The board communicates with your host microcontroller over I2C so it’s easy to use and doesn’t take up any of your precious analog or digital pins. There is also an optional interrupt pin that can alert your feather when a button has been pressed or released to free up processor time for other tasks.

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.
