However, on-board I/O rings and crocodile clips sometimes are not handy and safe enough to connect peripherals. To explore more possibilities with micro:bit, we have designed the micro:bit Expansion Board for Boson, a carry-on board that connects to micro:bit via edge connector.
The expansion board comes with 6 fool-proof 3-Pin sockets, compatible with hundreds of DFRobot’s Boson and Gravity modularized electronic blocks, covering most popular digital and analog sensors and actuators, supporting sound, light and motion interaction.

Moreover, the on-board 3.5MM headphone jack and volume knob supports direct connection of headphone.
To ensure a steady current supply for these peripherals, the expansion board can be powered externally through the USB power port.

Receipt of deliveries
Deliveries to post office boxes are not permitted where delivery is by courier. If delivery is by courier and nobody is available at the delivery address to accept delivery when delivery is attempted then the courier may either:
- leave the relevant parcel at the unattended address (the courier will do so if specified in your delivery requirements); or
- re-attempt delivery at a later time or date, in which case we may charge you an additional re-delivery fee.
Note that if a delivery is left unattended at the shipping address and is subsequently stolen then the theft is your responsibility, not ours.
Very good, great advice and service in determining the correct board to purchase.
I’ve bought a number of products from paktronics and am very happy with service and products. Will continue to come back.
