What's new at Adafruit?

It took all weekend but we refactored our E-Paper library (dubbed ThinkInk) to add fast partial updates. The QT Py has plenty of pins to drive your next EPD project, and lots of RAM as well. It's quickly becoming my favorite board!

Want to upgrade your QT Py to add onboard flash memory? There's a spot on the bottom. We love NOR flash memory, its cheap and easy to use when you need only a few MB. Lets show how to search on Digi-Key to identify the different models of SPI NOR FLASH as well as some of my hard-learned tips-n-tricks. Pick up a QT Py here!
