exhi:bit Prototyping system for micro:bit
exhi:bit is a prototyping and development system for the BBC micro:bit that allows Makers or students to go seamlessly from a prototype to a finished, more permanent project.
Plug your micro:bit into the edge connector socket on exhi:bit and you're ready to start creating! All of the micro:bit pins are broken out to header connectors and generous pads on the edge of the board - so you can connect to your project with jumper jerky, conductive thread, banana jacks, or crocodile clips.
- edge connector socket to connect your micro:bit
- micro:bit pins broken out to headers and pads
- use jumper jerky, conductive thread, banana jacks, or croc. clips
- breadboard for temporary projects
- prototyping area for permanent projects
- powered via 5-9V barrel jack power supply (not included), or micro USB
- area for notes
Use the prototyping area to create permanent projects or the breadboard for more temporary ones. When you're ready to make your project permanent you can transfer it to a daughter board. We also have an example pedestrian crossing board available separately, all ready for you to solder up!
You can use a 5-9V DC power supply (not included) to power your circuits or the microB USB port (it can't be used to program the micro:bit, just to supply power!)
There's even a handy area for writing notes on, with a Sharpie or similar marker, so that you know exactly what your project is, or who created it!
