The MI:pro Protector Case not only keeps a BBC micro:bit in perfect condition but also offers a number of other benefits. Keep your BBC micro:bit safe and secure with this compact, portable protective case where the 2xAAA battery pack can be bolted to the back, making a compact and portable unit. It also can be stood neatly on a desk and provide large easy to read labels for the A and B buttons. This case provides full access to the bottom pins on the BBC micro:bit so the Edge Connector Breakout Board for the BBC micro:bit can be used.

The BBC micro:bit is a powerful handheld, fully programmable, computer designed by the BBC and a number of partners to encourage children to get actively involved in writing software and building new things that will be controlled by it. Write your code using one of the easy to use editors provided on the BBC micro:bit website, connect your BBC micro:bit to your computer via USB press the compile button in the editor and then drop the downloaded file directly onto your BBC micro:bit. There is also an app for Android devices.

Wirelessly connect and interact with the world around you. Use Bluetooth Low Energy to connect to mobile phones and tablets, take a selfie or drive the music in your playlists.

The BBC micro:bit is the spiritual successor of the BBC Micro of the 1980s, which itself introduced a generation of children to computing. The BBC micro:bit carries on this 30 year tradition and does it 18 times faster and is 70 times smaller than its predecessor.

Based around a 32 bit ARM Cortex-M0 processor, the BBC micro:bit also features on board accelerometer and compass sensors, Bluetooth Low Energy and USB connectivity, a display consisting of 25 LEDs, two programmable buttons and it can be powered by either USB or an external battery pack. The device inputs and outputs are through five ring connectors that are part of the 21-pin edge connector.

Note: The MI:pro protector case requires assembly.

BBC micro:bit Features:

  • USB and Bluetooth Low energy connectivity.
  • Compass and Accelerometer.
  • 2 x user assignable buttons.
  • A 25 LED display.
  • 21 pin edge connector.

MI:pro Protector Case Features:

  • Provides excellent protection to the BBC micro:bit whilst allowing access to the bottom pins.

Question:

How many LEDs can I connect to a microbit?

Answers:

  • Posted by Rob Haywood on Monday, 26 September 2016

    The max current per pin is 5mA, but with a total maximum for the processor of 15mA.

    Nominally a standard LED will take around 10mA so one LED is too much for a processor pin. There are two ways around this, either add a current limit resistor so the LED takes less than 5mA, or add a transistor to each pin so that the current pullled through the pin is tiny, but the current the transistor can drive is a whole lot more.
