Way more power in tiny spaces with the new Adafruit Trinket M0 for Arduino and CircuitPython

Posted by

For some time the world of microcontrollers has produced some amazingly powerful and tiny units, however they generally haven't found their way to the hobbyist or beginners' market - until now. Thanks to Adafruit we have their new Trinket M0 board - powered by Atmel's ATSAMD21E18 32-bit Cortex M0+:

Adafruit Trinket M0 - for use with CircuitPython & Arduino IDE from Tronixlabs Australia

Compared to the previous 8-bit Trinket boards - you have 8 times the flash memory, 64 times more RAM and a clock speed of 48 MHz! Furthermore there's an onboard Dotstar addressable RGB LED and all the I/O pins can be accessed without interrupting the USB interface

There's enough processing power on this tiny board to control up to 8000 NeoPixel/Dotstar addressable RGB LEDs - that's awesome, and ideal for all those blinky wearable projects. 

Plus there is so much more - we cannot believe how powerful this little board is and quite frankly you should get one or more - the Trinket M0 can be used in the Arduino IDE and CircuitPython as well. To learn more and order your own Adafruit Trinket M0, please visit the product page.
