Serpente

Image of Board

There are two Serpente boards, they are both virtually the same, except for the USB connector. The standard Serpente board contains a USB Type-C connector, and the Serpente Plug uses the board itself as a Type-A USB plug.

If you are familiar with the Digispark boards, you may notice some similarities. This fact is of course not incidental, the Serpente boards are inspired by the Digispark, both in form-factor as well as use-cases. The Serpente boards are meant to be used as quick and dirty, yet flexible, prototyping tools.

Technical details

Here are some of the technical details regarding the boards:

  • ATSAMD21E18A 32-bit Cortex-M0+ running at 48MHz
  • 256KB flash and 32KB RAM
  • 4MB Flash for storing files and CircuitPython code
  • 6 highly customizable GPIOs
  • 250mA LDO
  • 3.3V logic and power
  • Powered either from USB or external source
  • User-controlled RGB LED
  • Mounting holes on the Serpente Type-C board

CircuitPython 5.0.0-beta.1

This is the latest unstable release of CircuitPython that will work with the Serpente.

Unstable builds have the latest features but are more likely to have critical bugs.

Release Notes for 5.0.0-beta.1

Absolute Newest

Every time we commit new code to CircuitPython we automatically build binaries for it. They are stored on Amazon S3 by language (some which may be unreleased.) Try them if you want the absolute latest and are feeling risky.

Past Releases

All previous releases are available on GitHub. They are handy for testing but we recommend the latest stable otherwise.
