An extension connector for Micro:bit
Do you want to more with your Micro:bit? Unlock its potential with this Edge Connector Breakout Board! The board has been designed to provide an easy way for connecting additional circuits and hardwares to the Micro:bit (on the pins available between the large pads). With this board you will gain accès to all the micro:bit's processor pins. This will offer a lot of extra functionality for your projects. The datasheet (below) includes a useful diagram explaining the function for every pin of the micro:bit.
The Connector Breakout Board for the micro:bit gives access to all of the important pins on the bottom edge of the board. 21 pins are available on the connector; providing additional I/O lines, direct access to buttons A and B, the LED matrix outputs and the I2C bus. See the datasheet in the tutorial section.
The pins are broken out to a row of pin headers. It provides an easy way for connecting circuits by using jumper wires. The SCL and SDA pins available on separate pads (on the edge of the connector board) for an easy identification. The board includes power rails for 3V, 0V and a free usage rows that can be soldered to. This allows the easy connection of switches, sensors and any pull-up or pull-down resistors etc. as required.
As example of connector usage you can have a look to the following links:
To use the breakout board the Micro:bit should be inserted firmly into the connector as shown in the product's picture.
