NEW PRODUCTS THIS WEEK
Adafruit QSPI DIP Breakout Board – W25Q16 – 16MB 2MB – W25Q16JVSSIQ
For many modern and powerful chips such as the RP2040, ESP32, RT10xx and STM32 series microcontrollers, designers can save money and reduce the number of chip options by not including Flash memory integration used to store code and resources. Instead, an external QSPI flash memory chip is wired in that can provide up to 16 megabytes (aka 128 megabits) of memory. It’s not as fast as if it was on the internal microcontroller bus but with Quad SPI I/O and smart caching by the chip designer, it’s pretty efficient!
Adafruit QSPI DIP breakout board – W25Q64 – 64MB 8MB – W25Q64JVSSIQ
To make prototyping and designing with QSPI flash a little easier, we designed these breakouts that convert wide 8-SOIC packages to a nice 0.3″ wide DIP. We find them handy when testing different flash sizes or just want to add more storage memory to a project.
Adafruit QSPI DIP Breakout Board – W25Q128 – 128MB 16MB – W25Q128JVSSIQ
It is the W25Q128JVSSIQ, a 128 megabit / 16 megabyte chip powered by 3.3 V and logic. Note that the Q at the end means the Quad Enable bit is permanently set in the status register. If you use it in QSPI mode, it will work right out of the box. If you’re using it in SPI mode, the ‘hold’ and ‘write protect’ pins don’t do anything, so just connect them to 3.3V.
Adafruit QT 5V to 3V Shifter Breakout – STEMMA QT / Qwiic
If you want to use the new Qwiic / Stemma QT standard for your next project – but are still using a classic Arduino UNO or another 5V microcontroller, this board is for you! Note that Adafruit QT boards are all 3V and 5V safe, but many other Qwiic devices and other I2C devices are not 5V safe or compatible. This means that if you use wires to connect a Qwiic board to a 5V microcontroller, you risk damaging your shiny new I2C sensor with voltages that are too high. Unless, of course, you have one of those Adafruit QT 5V to 3V Shifter Breakouts.
Adafruit PiCowbell Proto for Pico – Reset Button and STEMMA QT
Ding Dong! Listen to this? It’s PiCowbell’s ringtone, letting you know that the new Adafruit PiCowbell Proto is finally in stock and ready to support your Raspberry Pi Pico and Pico W project with hands-on hardware and hands-on prototyping.
