What is XIAO?

Extremely Compact Development Boards That Can Act as Functional Modules in Your Designs

XIAO is a series of ready-for-production developmemt boards with compact design, thumb-sized form factor, powerful processors, and rich peripherals. Such compact design makes it suitable forprojects like small and flexible wearable devices, IoT/TinyML AI applications, Micro keyboard and more.


As a complete microcontroller with all SMD components placed on the same side of the board, XIAO is also a functional module that can act as a building block for larger compute systems so as to simplify the process of designing and building complex electronic systems by providing a pre-integrated and tested platform.

Without further ado, let’s dive into these amazing projects!


5 Fascinating XIAO Projects that You MUST Try

Here’s a fun project as a starter: a simple XIAO-powered board for transparent OLED screen. This exciting project brings to life a slim and lightweight device that dazzles with high-quality images and text, all while boasting fantastic contrast and brightness.


Creating this project is a breeze – it involves a custom PCB that connects the XIAO SAMD21 to the screen’s converter board. Plus, you’ll need a 3D-printed screen holder to make it all come together.


Arnov explained how to customize the code for a display that suits your personal preferences. Read the article to discover more.


Looking to add some flair to your room? Check out this super cool room temperature & humidity meter! Powered by XIAO SAMD21, this device displays real-time readings on an OLED screen and uses the AHT10 to gather temperature and humidity data.


This device is ideal for applications such as environmental monitoring, weather stations, HVAC systems, and industrial automation, thanks to its low power consumption and fast response time.


It’s another easy project to make, so dive into the tutorial and craft your very own room temperature and humidity meter!


Ready to add a splash of color to your space? Check out this stunning cone-shaped RGB Lamp!


The lamp is built from scratch using custom 3D printed parts and basic electronics, which include a WS2812 RGB LED and XIAO SAMD21. XIAO SAMD21 in this case makes up the power board, connecting all 32 LEDs. XIAO SAMD21 can operate up to 48 MHz and support multiple development platforms.
