M5Stack Dial – ESP32-S3 Smart Rotary Knob with 1.28″ Touchscreen

Add a cool touch-screen rotary dial to your next build with the M5Stack M5Dial. The M5Dial integrates the necessary features and sensors for various smart home control applications as a versatile embedded development board. It features a 1.28-inch round TFT touchscreen, rotary encoder, RFID detection module, RTC circuit, buzzer, and under-screen ‘selection’ button, enabling users to easily implement various creative projects.

The main controller of M5Dial is M5StampS3, a micro module based on the ESP32-S3 chip known for its high performance and low power consumption. It supports Wi-Fi and various peripheral interfaces such as SPI, I2C, UART, ADC, and more. M5StampS3 also comes with 8MB of built-in Flash, providing sufficient storage space for users.

Flexible 12V LED Strip – 480 LEDs per meter – 1m long – Green

Newly available in Blue as well!

Here at Adafruit we love discovering new and exotic glowing things. Like moths to the flame, we were intrigued by these ‘chip on board’ ultra-flexible LED Strips with 480 SMT LEDs per meter, soldered side-by-side, and diffused with a silicone epoxy! They look a lot like neon or incandescent tubing or maybe really-nice EL wire, but without the need for expensive transformers, glass tubing, or inert gasses.

Unlike pixel-dot strips, these lights have a continuous, pure light source. Unlike our ‘Neon’ tubing, they’re much thinner and more flexible (but don’t have a chunky diffused look).

They are extremely flexible and bendy. This particular strip features a GREEN non-addressable LED strip with a solid chunk of translucent silicone rubber as a diffuser on top of the LEDs, encased in a sealed silicone tube that can be cut away. They look incredible, are super easy to use, and are a great way to make your projects light up!

The silicone makes for a strong, durable, weather-proof casing. It’s not guaranteed for dunking underwater or long-term outdoor exposure, but it’s durable enough for projects that have to survive the outdoors, like costumes, bike lighting, or festival decorations. Plus, with the adhesive backing, you can stick it where you please.

Adafruit NeoPixel Breakout with JST SH Connectors

This little breakout makes it easy to add a single NeoPixel to a project, with mounting holes and a pluggable connector. The PCB is less than 0.5″x0.5″ and comes with two 3-pin JST SH 1mm pitch connectors for input and output. On the opposite side, a 5050 (5mm square) classic RGB NeoPixel that can be powered and controlled with 3.3V or 5V power.

The two mounting holes are M2 size and have clearance for the screw head, or could be used for sewing onto a fabric backing or attaching to a small model. Of course this design will never be as affordable as a pre-made strand with dozens of LEDs, but there’s probably some time it would be useful – especially since it can be easily swapped out.

Adafruit DS2484 I2C to 1-Wire Bus Adapter Breakout – STEMMA QT / Qwiic JST SH 1mm

By customer request, this is a DS2484 Stemma QT board that uses a I2C-to-1W controller chip, with ESD protection and support for split supplies. You can easily connect it to an existing I2C bus and then use the screw terminals to attach multiple DS18B20’s, or pair it with our 1-Wire chaining breakouts for fancier experimentation.

You’re probably familiar with the ‘top three’ electronics protocols: I2C, SPI and UART. Perhaps you’re aware of a fourth one, called “1-Wire” which was invented by Dallas Semiconductor (which became Maxim, which became Analog Devices). As you may expect, this protocol uses a single data wire plus a ground wire (and an optional power wire) to connect to any number of sensors or memory chips that all share the same bus.
