Raspberry Pi & Maker goodies
Curated range of best of breed products.
If you'd like a compact display, with buttons and a joystick - we've got what you're looking for. The Adafruit 128x64 OLED Bonnet for Raspberry Pi is the big sister to our mini PiOLED add-on. This version has 128x64 pixels (instead of 128x32) and a much larger screen besides. With the OLED display in the center, there was some space on either side so Adafruit added a 5-way joystick and two pushbuttons. Great for when you want to have a control interface for your project.
Metro is Adafruits series of microcontroller boards for use with the Arduino IDE. This new Metro M0 Express board looks a whole lot like their original Metro 328, but with a huge upgrade. Instead of the ATmega328, this Metro features a ATSAMD21G18 chip, an ARM Cortex M0+. It's the first Metro that is designed for use with CircuitPython!
Thermocouples are very sensitive, requiring a good amplifier with a cold-compensation reference, as well as calculations to handle any non-linearities. For a long time we've suggested the MAX31855K breakout, which works great but is only for K-type thermocouples. Now we're happy to offer a great new thermocouple amplifier/converter that can handle just about any type of thermocouple, and even has the ability to give you notification when the temperature goes out of range, or a fault occurs. Very fancy!
If you're looking for the most compact lil' display for a Raspberry Pi (most likely a Pi Zero) project, this might be just the thing you need!
AdaBox003 – The World of IoT (Curated by Digikey) is the perfect gift for folks who are just getting started in the world of DIY electronics. It's an excellent introduction to the wide world of the Internet of Things
How to keep an enclosure weather/waterproof while still attaching cables for power, data or sensors? That's where cable glands come in. By installing these over the cable, they form-fit to make a seal, keeping your project box innards safe from the outdoors.
We love all the Feathers equally, but this Feather is very special. It's the first Feather that is specifically designed for use with CircuitPython! CircuitPython is Adafruits beginner-oriented flavor of MicroPython - and as the name hints at, its a small but full-featured version of the popular Python programming language specifically for use with circuitry and electronics.
Pocket-sized fun is the name of this game, with the Joy Bonnet – Adafruits most fun Bonnet ever (no we didn't even think that was possible, either!).
The Adafruit Feather nRF52 Bluefruit is the latest easy-to-use all-in-one Bluetooth Low Energy board, with a native-bluetooth chip, the nRF52832! It's a take on an 'all-in-one' Arduino-compatible + Bluetooth Low Energy with built in USB and battery charging.
Design your own Bonnet or pHAT, attach custom circuitry and otherwise dress your Pi Zero with this jaunty prototyping Bonnet kit!
