Feather is an Adafruit standard format for microcontrollers.

  • Large, comparatively for microcontrollers.
    • Still pretty small compared to a Raspberry Pi or other types of SBCs (Single Board Computers)
  • Alot of feather boards.
    • All the same size and mostly use the same standards for pins and connections.

Note

Not all feathers run CircuitPython.
