We've taken the original Circuit Playground Classic and made it even better! Not only did we pack even more sensors in, we also made it even easier to program.
Adafruit Circuit Playground Express is an all-in-one design board featuring a processor, sensors, LEDs, USB, and more, making it an ideal introduction to electronics and programming. Circuit Playground Express currently supports programming via Microsoft MakeCode, a web-based code editor for physical computing.
The Circuit Playground Express is based on an ultralow-power SMART SAM L21 Microcontroller, using a 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M0+ core.
The SAM L21 features sophisticated power management technologies, allowing for very low current consumption.
It can be powered from USB, "AAA" battery pack, or with a Lipoly battery. The round, sensor-packed Circuit Playground Express Board features alligator-clip pads around the edge, making it easy to connect to projects without having to solder.
Built-in USB allows quick connectivity for programming, with no special cables or adapters required.
