Choo! Choo! This is the RP2040 Metro Line, making all station stops at “Dual Cortex M0+ mountain”, “264K RAM round-about” and “16 Megabytes of Flash town”. This train is piled high with hardware that complements the Raspberry Pi RP2040 chip to make it an excellent development board for projects that want Arduino-shape-compatibility or just need the extra space and debugging ports.
ESP32-C3-DevKit-RUST-1 is an entry-level RISC V development board equipped with the ESP32-C3-MINI-1, a powerful, generic Wi-Fi + Bluetooth LE MCU module that features a rich set of peripherals, yet an optimized size. It’s an ideal choice for a wide variety of application scenarios related to the Internet of Things (IoT), such as embedded systems, smart homes, wearable electronics, etc. This version is equipped with the ESP32-C3-MINI-1 with 4MB SPI Flash and no PSRAM.

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.
