Prototyping System for the Micro:bit

This Prototyping System for the BBC micro:bit is a great way to start making circuits and making experiments without the need to solder.

This prototyping system uses our specially designed Edge Connector Breakout Board for micro:bit that gives full access to the pins on the bottom of the micro:bit. The micro:bit pins are broken out to a row of pin headers, the SCL and SDA pins are separated at the edge of the board providing easy identification. The PCB includes a prototyping area with 3V, 0V and unconnected rows that can be soldered to. This allows easy connection of switches, sensors and any pull-up or pull-down resistors, etc. as required.

This prototyping system is used in conjunction with a Small Prototype Breadboard. This makes it easy to connect additional components using the included jumper wires. No soldering required.

Please Note: BBC micro:bit, 2 x AAA Battery Cage and 2 x AAA Batteries are NOT included.

Features
  • No soldering is required
  • Breaks out 21 pins from the micro:bit using the pre-built edge connector breakout board for micro:bit
  • Small prototype breadboard included so you can use additional components
  • Run your own custom code from your micro:bit to interact with external components
