Using the SPI Flash SD Card breakout with CircuitPython is as simple as wiring it up to a microcontroller and using the Adafruit CircuitPython SD library.

It is not recommended to use this with Raspberry Pi and other single-board computers as you already have a full filesystem available to you.

CircuitPython Wiring

Wire up your SPI Flash SD Card breakout as shown below. This example shows a Feather M4 wired up using SPI.

  • Board 3V to breakout VIN
  • Board GND to breakout GND
  • Board SCK to breakout SCK
  • Board MI(SO) to breakout MISO
  • Board MO(SI) to breakout MOSI
  • Board D5 to breakout CS
