Huzzah32 with CircuitPython?

by lionfood on Wed Feb 17, 2021 2:02 pm

After having coded half of a project on my MatrixPortal I realized for practical application purposes I need a smaller setup and not necessarily with a display. My project also needs wifi, i2c, and feather form factor. However, most of the project was done in circuitpython. Is there any way to get circuit python on the huzzah32?

I realize I could go with the Unexpected Maker FeatherS2 but honestly I'm probably not going to be soldering again until its over 50 degrees here so it would be several weeks before I could even think about doing that. If I end up having to recode everything with arduino/c++ then I'll probably just wait until I have time to solder my existing non-adafruit supported ESP32 board I was goin tgo use for another project.

CircuitPython will not run on the Huzzah ESP32 -- the ESP32 is not supported since it does not have native USB. The ESP32S2 does have native USB and is supported.

Edited to add: You could consider adding an Airlift Featherwing to a feather_m4_express.
Or -- you can run Micropython on the Huzzah ESP32

Hmm...its tempting. If I wasn't backlogged on 4-5 incomplete projects due to less than ideal soldering weather I would probably have jumped on this already. How much current/devices can it handle through its stemma?

Good question. The MagTag is designed to drive steppers and such through it's STEMMA connectors so the current can be quite high. The conservative numnber I've seen for these 28AWG STEMMA QT connectors is 226mA. You could go higher, but there be dragons.
