FeatherWing designs by Sync Channel

Dan Watson of the The Sync Channel Blog has been designing exciting FeatherWings (e.g. daughterboards) for the Adafruit Feather line of microcontroller development boards.  Dan wrote a nice introduction to Feather:

Helping Your Feathers Flock Together

“Occasionally I see a new product or microcontroller development board that really sparks my interest. That’s what happened with the Adafruit Feather line of boards. They pack a lot of punch into a small footprint, especially when you consider the fact that LiPo charging is built-in, as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or an SD card on some of the variants.”

Dan designed a FeatherWing that combines a GPS and 9DOF IMU sensor:

MultiNav FeatherWing for Adafruit Feather

“The MultiNav FeatherWing is an add-on board for Adafruit Feather. It incorporates a U-Blox NEO-6M GPS module as well as an InvenSense MPU-9250 9 Degrees of Freedom (9DOF) sensor.”
 
He also added the board as as OSH Park Shared Project:

Dan also designed a FeatherWing for low-power, long-range wireless communication:

LoRa FeatherWing Development Breakout

“LoRa is an ultra-long range wireless technology that uses sub-GHz ISM bands. It allows the interconnection of small, low-power sensor nodes and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. There are many LoRa transceiver modules on the market from manufacturers such as HopeRF and MicroChip.”

Dan shared the board on OSH Park:
