NEW PRODUCT – Adafruit Qwiic / Stemma QT Breakout Board

A customer requested a board that makes connecting a breadboard and Stemma QT or Qwiic components easy, so here’s what we whipped up!

The Adafruit Qwiic / Stemma QT Breakout Board is pretty simple: on one end is a JST SH-compatible connector that will let you plug-and-play into the Qwiic or Stemma QT universe. On the other side are four 0.1″ spaced pads where you can solder headers or wires as you wish. In between are two 10K pullup resistors from the two I2C SDA/SCL lines to the positive power pin, plus a green ON LED so you know when the power pin and ground are properly wired.

And that’s it! Simple but effective. You can use it with ‘I2C controllers like a Feather, Metro, or QT Py or with ‘I2C devices like sensors, OLEDs, or GPIO expanders. Since the lines just pass through, you can use it with 3 or 5V power and logic. The LED and pull-up resistors can be deactivated by cutting small traces on the back of the PCB if they are not needed.

In stock and shipping now!
