PicoPlanet is a procedurally generated series of PCBs. The three planets act as capacitive touch buttons. The board also has a RGB LED on top, a USB-C connector and 4 more pin pads on the bottom. The board’s brain is a powerful SAMD21. The design also has stars that are not covered by copper or soldermask and are perfect spots to place more LEDs.
The board design is generated procedurally and each version of the board is only produced 10 times.

This is the latest unstable release of CircuitPython that will work with the PicoPlanet.
Unstable builds have the latest features but are more likely to have critical bugs.

Every time we commit new code to CircuitPython we automatically build binaries for each board and language. The binaries are stored on Amazon S3, organized by board, and then by language. Try them if you want the absolute latest and are feeling daring or want to see if a problem has been fixed.
All previous releases are listed on GitHub, with release notes, and are available for download from Amazon S3. They are handy for testing, but otherwise we recommend using the latest stable release. Some older GitHub release pages include the same binaries for downloading. But we have discontinued including binaries as assets on newer release pages because of the large number of files for each release.
