(Tutorial) Small Size & Smaller Power - Using the Adafruit QT PY and ODT TPS22917 Acorn
In our previous tutorial with the TPS22917 Acorn, we showed you how to get started with the module using Arduino and the Arduino Nano. In this tutorial, we'll show you how easy it is to get the TPS22917 integrated into your project, all while showing off the new SAMD21 development board the QT PY by Adafruit.
If you're just getting started with designing your own printed circuit boards, or PCBs you might be inspired by the simple to use Arduino Nano, its small form factor, and overall aesthetic to new makers and hobbyists. There's a lot to consider when designing a new board, or even using the DIP package of the ATMega328p. In this tutorial, we will show you the easy way to get your ATMega328p boot loaded and ready to use for your project.
Coming over the next few weeks and months to Oak Development Technologies are a few exciting and versatile products to help you get started on your project. Here are a few that are coming by in the next 2 weeks.
Trying to figure out how to reduce the power consumption of your project with multiple peripherals can be tricky, especially if these peripherals are operating off different power supplies than your main controller. This is where the easy to use TPS22917 Power Switch/Load Driver from Texas Instruments comes in.
