Circuit Playground - Developer Edition
PRODUCT ID: 3000
Description
Would you like to learn electronics, with an all-in-one board that has sensors and LEDs built
in? C
Circuit Playground
is here - and it's the best way to practice programming on real
hardware with no soldering or sewing required!
Circuit Playground features an ATmega32u4 processor, just like our popular Flora. The
board's also round and has alligator-clip pads around it so you don't have to solder or sew to
make it work. You can power it from USB, a AAA battery pack, or with a Lipoly battery (for
advanced users). Just program your code into the board then take it on the go!
ATmega32u4 Processor, running at 3.3V and 8MHz
MicroUSB port for programming and debugging with Arduino IDE
USB port can act like serial port, keyboard, mouse, joystick or MIDI
Circuit Playground has built-in USB support. Built in USB means you plug it in to program it

are necessary! With the new 1.6.4+ Arduino IDE, it takes only a few seconds to add support.
The Circuit Playground has USB HID support, so it can act like a mouse or keyboard and
attach directly to computers.
Here's some of the great goodies baked in:
10 x mini NeoPixels, each one can display any color
1 x Motion sensor (LIS3DH triple-axis accelerometer with tap detection, free-fall detection)
1 x Temperature sensor (thermistor)
1 x Light sensor (phototransistor)
1 x Sound sensor (MEMS microphone)
1 x Mini speaker (magnetic buzzer)
2 x Push buttons, left and right
1 x Slide switch
8 x alligator-clip friendly input/output pins
Includes I2C, UART, and 4 pins that can do analog inputs/PWM output
All 8 pads can act as capacitive touch inputs
Green "ON" LED so you know its powered
Red "#13" LED for basic blinking
Reset button
We've started out with a D
Developer Edition
of Circuit Playground. This version is designed for
people who have a little experience with Arduino already, who want to help build & document
projects. There might be minor hardware or software bugs. Once we feel like the design is
really solid we'll revise/re-release it into a universal edition for anyone to use!
