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 BBC micro:bit that gives full access to the pins on the bottom of the BBC micro:bit. The BBC 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 is NOT included.


This kit requires assembly.

    Hi Brendon, Unfortunately you wouldn’t be able to use the MI:power with the prototyping system as the MI:power screws directly to the pins on the edge of the micro:bit and as such would prevent it from being inserted into the edge connector.

Options for Powering the BBC micro:bit
This Kitronik University Resource is a part of the BBC micro:bit partnership and explains the various options available for powering your BBC micro:bit.
Transferring a Program to the BBC micro:bit
After you've created your first program you'll need to compile it and transfer it to the BBC micro:bit. This process is very simple, and if you follow our guide you'll be up and running in no time.
Getting Started with the Touch Develop Editor
The Touch Develop Editor centres around a code keyboard, making it perfect for writing code on a touch screen device or by using your mouse.
Getting Started with Microsoft Block Editor
The Microsoft Block Editor is a drag and drop editor that provides a simple introduction to programming. Blocks snap together to build programs and are grouped by the type of function they do. When a group is selected, the commands in the whole group are highlighted and can be selected. It's a great introduction to programming for those with little or no experience.
