Though the Raspberry Pi computer is eminently networkable, some projects still just work best by physically moving the SD card to a desktop system to exchange data…but normally only a small section of the card is accessible to Windows and Mac computers. This guide explains one way of making more space available to both the Pi and other systems.
If your microcontroller or microcomputer has digital audio capability, this amp is for you! It takes standard I2S digital audio input and, not only decodes it into analog, but also amplifies it directly into a speaker. Perfect for adding compact amplified sound, it takes 2 breakouts (I2S DAC + Amp) and combines them into one.
You wont be able to look away from the mesmerizing patterns created by this Adafruit 15x7 CharliePlex LED Matrix Display FeatherWing. This 15x7 LED display can be paired with with any of our Feather boards for a beautiful, bright grid of 105 charlieplexed LEDs. It even comes with a built-in charlieplex driver that is run over I2C.
You will chirp with delight when you see how easy it is to make your very own 8x16 LED matrix display for any Feather. This kit combines two of our adorable miniature LED matrices with a FeatherWing driver board. At 0.8" square, these little 8x8 matrices have got everything a big LED matrix has, but bite sized! Double them up for 128 total bright LEDs.
Have some fun with the Adafruit Feather HUZZAH and the CheerLight project. Originally created by Hans Scharler, CheerLights allows people’s lights all over the world to synchronize to one color set by a specific Twitter feed. In this interpretation, Marc de Vinck creates a WiFi enable CheerLight using the Adafruit Feather HUZZAH, Neopixels, and some clever code.
Give your Feather a sense of place, with an Ultimate GPS FeatherWing. This FeatherWing plugs right into your Feather board and gives it a precise, sensitive, and low power GPS module for location identifcation anywhere in the world. As a bonus, the GPS can also keep track of time once it is synced with the satellites.
This is a quick tutorial for our 128x64 and 128x32 pixel monochrome OLED displays. These displays are small, only about 1" diameter, but very readable due to the high contrast of an OLED display. Each OLED display is made of 128x64 or 128x32 individual white OLEDs, each one is turned on or off by the controller chip. Because the display makes its own light, no backlight is required. This reduces the power required to run the OLED and is why the display has such high contrast; we really like this miniature display for its crispness!
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!
This is the Adafruit 0.56" 4-Digit 14-Segment Display w/ FeatherWing Combo Pack! Display, elegantly, 012345678 or 9! Gaze, hypnotized, at ABCDEFGHIJKLM - well it can display the whole alphabet. You get the point. It is a nice, bright alphanumeric display that shows letters and numbers in a beautiful hue.
7-Segment Matrices like these are 'multiplexed' - so to control all the seven-segment LEDs you need 14 pins. That's a lot of pins! Here at Adafruit we feel your pain. After all, wouldn't it be awesome if you could control a matrix without tons of wiring? That's where these 7-Segment LED FeatherWings come in!
