Use a Circuit Playground Express to see your pulse graphed out
The light sensor on the Circuit Playground Express is used as a pulse sensor, albeit one with limited accuracy. The output can be plotted in Circuit Python and the Mu editor or MakeCode for Windows 10. Learn More
Using the Analog Devices ADT7410 and the Feather Huzzah to create an IoT Temperature logger
Analog Devices, known for their reliable and well-documented sensor chips - has a high precision and high resolution temperature sensor on the market - the ADT7410 - and we've got a breakout to make it easy to use! Even better? We can easily bring the sensor online using a Feather HUZZAH and Adafruit IO. You'll be up and running in under 15 minutes!
Precision I2C temperature sensing from Analog Devices
Analog Devices, known for their reliable and well-documented sensor chips - has a high precision and high resolution temperature sensor on the market, and we've got a breakout to make it easy to use! The Analog Devices ADT7410 gets straight to the point - it's an I2C temperature sensor, with 16-bit 0.0078°C temperature resolution and 0.5°C temperature tolerance. Wire it up to your microcontroller or single-board computer to get reliable temperature readings with ease Learn More
Get up and running quickly with this wide-range I2C-based magnetic field sensor
The MLX90393 isn't Just One More 3-axis magnetometer! This device has a very wide measurement range (from 5-50mT), making it useful for far more than just orientation sensing toward a magnetic pole. You could use it for 'magnetic fingerprinting', for example, which uses variations in magnetic fields in a known/fixed location to determine where you are indoors. Or it makes a great contactless interface for measuring changes in anything the generates a magnetic field (motors, etc.). Dig into this guide for details on how to get started with this flexible magnetic field sensor!
Use RPI with a bonnet and RGB LED Matrix to get your timing right
This project shows the creation of a digital clock using RGB LED matrix. But that is just the beginning. Once you get it going, you can use all Python libraries available to display anything that matters to you. Using the 3D file provided, print a frame to house the LED Matrix, a Raspberry Pi Zero W and light sensor. Learn More
Bringing Low Power Wide Area Networking to CircuitPython
Connect an Adafruit CircuitPython-compatible board to The Things Network - a distributed LoRaWAN network designed for the Internet of Things (IoT). Build a weather node to track the humidity and temperature over time.
