· This is a connector that fits directly to the edge contacts of a BBC micro:bit. The connector has 80 pins, but because of the different widths of the micro:bit edge contacts, some of the micro:bit contacts will map to more than one of this connector's pins. Also, the back half of the pins are not used at all.
· The edge connector gives access to all the important pins on the bottom edge of the micro:bit. Check the datasheet for the pin spacing and orientation. This connector is best used with a custom PCB.
· This breakout board for edge connectors allows intermediate and advanced users to connect micro:bit to breadboards and other sensors, motors, LEDs, etc.
· We can use it in many ways, it is highly recommended to use our breakout board
· Through the breakout board, we broke through all 21 GPIO, power and ground pins in the form of 0.1".
The micro:bit, by itself, offers a vast array of possibilities and potential projects, considering it includes an onboard temperature sensor, accelerometer, compass, LED array, Bluetooth radio, and more.
However, when you're ready to branch out beyond those initial capabilities, like connecting to an SD card for logging, you'll need to break out some of the pins on the micro:bit's card edge connector.
For that, we've got you covered with the micro:bit Breakout Board.
Note: This product needs to be soldered by yourself.
