Re: Adafruit CPX (Circuit Playground Express)

Well yes, I certainly could, just like I painstakingly soldered a 2x4 keypad on the one I'm using now...
The beauty of the CPX is that I don't have to add anything to it for the same result :-)

Re: Adafruit CPX (Circuit Playground Express)

Re: Adafruit CPX (Circuit Playground Express)

So it's a toy, yes, but it already does the same thing my pyboard's been doing for over a year, and is capable of a lot more the pyboard alone couldn't. It's really no surprise at all. While the MicroPython team is busy developing the platform, making it stable, fixing the bugs and preparing for ne...

Adafruit CPX (Circuit Playground Express)

Dunno if anyone here has already tried this trinket, but I just received mine, and am really impressed... It has an incredible lot of stuff built-in for a 5cm diameter round board : two user buttons (with pullups), plus reset, a two-mode slide switch, green (power) and red (addressable) LEDs, batter...
