The Servo:Lite board for the BBC micro:bit is a simple board that allows you to easily connect and control low power servo motors (servo's must be capable of operating at 3.3V) using the BBC micro:bit. It is connected to the micro:bit using five bolts. Connect two servos in standard configuration and it can drive up to 3 servos if the addressable 'ZIP' LEDs arent needed.

It is powered by 3 AAA batteries and also supplies power to the BBC micro:bit, the board features an On / off switch so when it's not in use the batteries won't drain.



The board also features 5 x RGB individually addressable ZIP LEDs (NeoPixel compatible) and additional external ZIP LEDs can be connected to the board as required.

We've produced a range of tutorials and guides that can be found in the resources section below. We have guides detailing; how to control a third servo and how to write code for the on-board ZIP LEDs.


  • Connect two servos in standard con?guration and can drive up to 3 servos if the addressable 'ZIP' LEDs arent needed.
  • Powered by 3 AAA batteries that also supply power to the BBC microbit (not supplied).
  • On / off switch.
  • 5 x RGB addressable ZIP LEDs (NeoPixel compatible). Additional external ZIP LEDs can be connected to the board.

    A: Hi Michel, The most likely issues is that the screw hasn’t been sufficiently tightened onto the micro:bit, which then means the pin headers for servo 2 isn’t receiving the correct signal. As such the first thing to check is that the screw connected through connector ‘2’ on the micro:bit and servo: lite is tight. If this is tight then the next thing to check is that the pin headers appear securely connected and when the servo is plugged in the connection still appears secure. If you are still having issues drop an email to
