Favorited Favorite 2

We've been lucky to have Teensy for as long as we have. Since 2013, SparkFun has been carrying the ultra-small development platform from PJRC, from v2.0 all the way up to its latest iteration, v4.0, and just about everything in between. Teensy boards have the knack for being resilient and dependable with little risk of defect or shortcomings. When you buy a Teensy, you can be assured that you will receive a breadboard-friendly development board with loads of features.

Now, seven years after we began carrying Teensy, we have an immense offering of the different varieties available from PJRC, as well as a few homebrew creations we and others have developed. Let's take some time to showcase what have to offer as well as some fun tutorials and projects that could help you design your next project!

    I'm working on an Altair 680 emulator for the Teensy 4. I was going to use the Arduino Due, but I'd like to give the Teensy a try.

    So,where is the Teensy QWIIC adapter board? (Hint, hint) I'd also like to see another update to the Arduino adapter offering a QWIIC port there as well.

    IM[NS]HO, the best part of the Teensy 3.5/3.6/4.0 is that they provide access for an on-board Real Time Clock/calendar [RTC] if you add an external battery, without having to mess with an external RTC board!
