Adafruit has this week announced the availability or their new Adafruit Feather M0 Adalogger which provides an Adafruit version of on an ‘all-in-one’ Cortex M0 datalogger or data-reader and expands the company range of Feather development boards.
The Feather M0 Adalogger is equipped with a built in USB and battery charging features and takes the form of an Adafruit Feather M0 complete with a microSD holder.
To re-cap Feather is a new development board created by Adafruit that has been designed to be thin, lightweight and offer a new standard for portable microcontroller cores, says Adafruit, who explain more about the latest addition to the range:
At the Feather M0’s heart is an ATSAMD21G18 ARM Cortex M0 processor, clocked at 48 MHz and at 3.3V logic, the same one used in the new Arduino Zero. This chip has a whopping 256K of FLASH (8x more than the Atmega328 or 32u4) and 32K of RAM (16x as much)! This chip comes with built in USB so it has USB-to-Serial program & debug capability built in with no need for an FTDI-like chip.
To make it easy to use for portable projects, we added a connector for any of our 3.7V Lithium polymer batteries and built in battery charging. You don’t need a battery, it will run just fine straight from the micro USB connector. But, if you do have a battery, you can take it on the go, then plug in the USB to recharge. The Feather will automatically switch over to USB power when its available. We also tied the battery thru a divider to an analog pin, so you can measure and monitor the battery voltage to detect when you need a recharge.
