The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized codeable computer with motion detection, a built-in compass, LED display, and Bluetooth technology built in.

It measures 4cm by 5cm, is available in a range of colours, and designed to be fun and easy to use. It can be coded with something simple in seconds – like lighting up its LEDs or displaying a pattern – with no prior knowledge of computing.

It also connects to other devices, sensors, kits and objects, and is a companion to Arduino, Galileo, Kano, littleBits and Raspberry Pi, acting as a spring board to more complex learning.

Each element is completely programmable via easy-to-use software on a dedicated website (www.microbit.co.uk) that can be accessed from a PC, tablet or mobile.

 

  • Microprocessor: 32-bit ARM® Cortex™ M0 CPU
  • A 5x5 LED matrix with 25 red LEDs to light up. Each LED is individually programmable and can display animated patterns, scrolling text and alphanumeric characters
  • Two programmable buttons. The micro:bit can detect either of its two buttons being pressed and unpressed, and can be programmed to act on that or send the information to another device. Use them as a games controller, or control music on a smartphone.
  • On-board motion detector or 3-AXIS digital accelerometer that can detect movement and tell other devices you’re on the go. It measures on 3 axes, X, Y, Z, and sends back the data in milli-gs. The micro:bit can react to this data and tell other devices it is moving. The device will also detect a small number of standard actions, eg shake, tilt and freefall. Turn the micro:bit into a spirit level. Use it for motion-activated games. Have your micro:bit light up when something is moved.
  • A built-in compass, 3D magnetometer to sense which direction you’re facing and your movement in degrees. This data can be used by the micro:bit in a program or be sent to another device. The magnetometer could also detect the presence of certain metals and magnets.
  • Bluetooth® Smart Technology (previously called Bluetooth Low Energy) to wirelessly communicate with other Bluetooth Smart devices and exchange data and commands. Connect the micro:bit to other micro:bits, devices, phones, tablets, cameras and everyday objects all around. Play games, share creations or join forces to create multi-micro:bit masterpieces. Take a selfie. Pause a DVD or control your playlist.
  • Five Ring Input and Output (I/O) including power (PWR) and ground (GRD). PWR, GRD, I/O x 3. Each I/O ring is programmable to be either analogue or digital. The rings are suitable for crocodile clips or 4mm banana plugs, meaning an external sensor can be connected to measure things like temperature, moisture, proximity to other devices. The micro:bit reads values from the sensor and acts on them or sends them to another device. The micro:bit can also send control commands to the rings – these could be used to control things like a motor or robot. The PWR and GRD rings supply 3 volts and could be used to power a separate device.
  • Edge Connector: 20 pins, 1.27mm pitch and extend 7.62mm from board edge suitable for standard connectors. This allows the micro:bit to be connected to another device, eg Arduino, Galileo, Kano and Raspberry Pi through a standard connector.
  • Micro-USB contoller: This is controlled by a separate processor and presents the micro:bit to a computer as a memory stick. This means the program can be dragged onto the micro:bit in the same way a file is dragged onto a memory stick.
  • System LED x 1 (yellow)
  • System push button switch x 1
  • Size: 43×52 mm / 1.7*2.04 inches (net).

    Features:

     

  • A variety of on-board modules
  • Expandable for additional sensors or actuators
  • Graphical drag and drop code editor
  • Easy and smooth program uploading
  • Bluetooth wireless programming uploading
  • Bluetooth Wireless communication
  • JavaScript Blocks Editor

    JavaScript Blocks Editor

    Micro:bit's new JavaScript editor makes it easy to program your micro:bit in Blocks and JavaScript, along with great new features like peer-to-peer radio. Powered by Makecode.

    Python Editor

    Python Editor

    Our Python editor is perfect for those who want to push their coding skills further. A selection of snippets and a range of premade images and music give you a helping hand with your code.

      Purchasing micro-bits

      The school purchased 12 micro-bits. As we were not familiar with how to use the micro-bits, Pakronic's technical support, was outstanding. They followed up with a number of enquires immediately and more importantly did not make us feel inadequate because we didn't understand. I highly recommend, mainly for the speed of delivery and ongoing technical support.

      Micro:Bits in primary classrooms

      Micro:bits were the perfect way to explore the implementation strand of the Digital Technoliges classrooms in the 3-8 classrooms I support. It is simple to get started but there are so many places to take it.

      microbit for STEM - weather station network

      Great product and tool to explore STEM education. Combine with extra shields from either Sparkfun or Seeed and it extends the capability of microbit. I was able to construct a radio network of 4 microbits using both the weather shield and Grove shields with Grove BME280 into a node-red PC page. Lots of fun.
