Are you ready? Really ready? Cause here comes the fastest, most powerful Metro ever. The Adafruit Metro M4 featuring the Microchip ATSAMD51. This Metro is like a bullet train, with it's 120MHz Cortex M4 with floating point support. Your code will zig and zag and zoom, and with a bunch of extra peripherals for support, this will for sure be your favorite new chipset.
With this Feather we're getting a little nostalgic for the ATmega328P - the classic 'Arduino' chip - with this Adafruit Feather 328P running a 3.3V and 8 MHz. Feather is the new development board from Adafruit, and like it's namesake it is thin, light, and lets you fly! We designed Feather to be a new standard for portable microcontroller cores.
Program your favorite AVR chips directly from CircuitPython with this handy helper class that will let you make stand-alone programmers right from your REPL. Should work with any/all AVR chips, via SPI programming. You can use this code to program chips without any additional software or drivers - just drag a Hex file over to program it!
What's smaller than a Feather but larger than a Trinket? It's an Itsy Bitsy! Small, powerful, Arduino-compatible - this microcontroller board is perfect when you want something very compact, but still with a bunch of pins. Itsy Bitsy is only 1.4" long by 0.7" wide, but has 6 power pins, 23 digital pins with plenty of analog in and pwm out. It packs much of the same capability as an Arduino UNO. So it's great once you've finished up a prototype on a bigger Arduino, and want to make the project much smaller.
Connect your Arduino-compatible to the Internet with this WiFi shield that features the FCC-certified ATWINC1500 module from Atmel. This 802.11bgn-capable WiFi module is the best new thing for networking your devices, with SSL support and rock solid performance - running our adafruit.io MQTT demo for a full weekend straight with no hiccups (it would have run longer but we had to go to work, so we unplugged it).
Playing MP3 audio files on an Arduino compatible board used to be a clunky and expensive ordeal. Now it's a breeze with the Adafruit MP3 library. If you have an ARM Cortex M4 (or M3) based microcontroller board, and you want to rock out, this mini guide will be music to your ears. With the accompanying library, based off of Helix, you will be able to decode and play stereo MP3 files without the need for an external chip! That's right, no VLSI VS10xx chips required, you can do it on the fly!
Did you know that the Arduino IDE can be used to program the micro:bit? Now you have yet another way to use this cool board! Learn how to set up Arduino to program your micro:bit, blink some LEDs, read the internal temperature sensor, send and receive data over Bluetooth - even log data to Adafruit.IO!
You can wire arcade buttons to the Gemma M0 which can be programmed in CircuitPython as a USB HID device (emulating keyboard strokes) to control any iCade compatible game on iOS! Plus, you can build your own stylish, rugged mini table using slotted aluminum extrusions and hardware! And, no soldering is required, just plug and play!
