The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized codeable computer with motion detection, a built-in compass, LED display, and Bluetooth technology built in.

It measures 4cm by 5cm, is available in a range of colours, and designed to be fun and easy to use. It can be coded with something simple in seconds – like lighting up its LEDs or displaying a pattern – with no prior knowledge of computing.

It also connects to other devices, sensors, kits and objects, and is a companion to Arduino, Galileo, Kano, littleBits and Raspberry Pi, acting as a spring board to more complex learning.

Each element is completely programmable via easy-to-use software on a dedicated website that can be accessed from a PC, tablet or mobile.

Product Overview

Get creative, get connected & get coding with the micro:bit go. A complete set containing all the parts and inspirational ideas to get started with the micro:bit. Each micro:bit go contains 1x micro:bit, USB cable, battery holder & 2x AAA batteries along with a Quick Start Guide featuring 4 fun ideas all in a retail ready pack. The micro:bit go is the quickest and easiest way for children to get going with the micro:bit. The micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that you can code, customise and control to bring your digital ideas, games and apps to life. Measuring 4cm by 5cm, and designed to be fun and easy to use, users can create anything from games and animations to scrolling stories at school, at home and on the go - all you need is imagination and creativity. The micro:bit is completely programmable. That means each of its LEDs can be individually programmed as can its buttons, inputs and outputs, accelerometer, magnetometer and Bluetooth Smart Technology. The micro:bi
  • Microprocessor: 32-bit ARM® Cortex™ M0 CPU
  • A 5x5 LED matrix with 25 red LEDs to light up and can display animiated patterns, scrolling text and alphanumeric characters
  • Two programmable buttons. Use them as a games controller, or control music on a smart phone
  • On-board motion detector or 3-AXIS digital accelerometer that can detect movement e.g. shake, tilt or free-fall
  • A built-in compass, 3D magnetometer to sense which direction you're facing and your movement in degrees and detect the presence of certain metals and magnets
  • Bluetooth® Smart Technology. Connect the micro:bit to other micro:bits, devices, phones, tablets, cameras and other everday objects
  • 20 pin edge connector: This allows the micro:bit to be connected to other devices such as Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Galileo and Kano through a standard connector
  • Micro-USB controller: This is controlled by a separate processor and presents the micro:bit to a computer as a memory stick
  • Five Ring Input and Output (I/O) including power (PWR), ground (GRD) and 3 x I/O.
  • System LED x 1 (yellow)
  • System push button switch x 1

Blinky electronic DIY PCB soldering kit using the 555 timer IC (AW T1 Blinky solder kit)
This kit is produced by BinarySpace in partnership with PiShop.

They meet every Thursday night at 19:30. For more information go join the Mailing list and also check out their Facebook Page :)

---

Welcome to the world of electronics. This kit is for a 555 a-stable multi vibrator. Or flip-flop for short.
The 555 timer ic has been a popular part of electronics since 1972 and it is still going strong today!

Read and understand the instructions first before you start soldering!

It is important for you to first identify the components and familiarize yourself with the printed circuit board (PCB) before you start to solder. Some components must only be installed in a certain way, and will not work if installed the wrong way around. These components are called “polarized” and care should be taken with their orientation.

What you will need(not included in this kit)

Your soldering gear.
A 9V battery to power your project.

And now for the good stuff....

1. The PCB





The pcb is the component that all the other components will be soldered to. It creates the frame for the project.
The components must be inserted from the side with the component values printed on it.
The printing is called silkscreen and it will also show you the correct placement of parts.

2. Resistors


Resistors can be installed in any orientation. Resistors have different values that are represented by colour bands. The colours are read from left to right with the silver or gold band to the right. Identify the resistors and place them in the pcb as shown by the silkscreen by bending the leads and
pressing the resistors flush with the pcb.

R1 = Brown, black, red, gold. = 1 k Ω
R2 = Brown, black, orange, gold. = 10 k Ω
R3, R4 = Yellow, violet, brown, gold. = 470 Ω ( * 2)

3 Integrated circuit (ic):



The ic is the heart of the circuit. Note that the ic has a little indentation or notch on one side; this shows the orientation of how the ic should be inserted into the pcb. Line the notch on the ic up with the notch on the silkscreen marked 555. You might have
to bend the legs of the ic slightly inwards in order to have them fit.

4 Light emitting diodes (LED):



The LED’s will be the eyes of our ghost. Care should be taken with their orientation as they are polarized. LED’s have two ways of showing us the polarization, a “cut out” in the LED and a difference in leg lengths. If a LED is placed the wrong way it
will simply not light up. Insert the LED’s with the cut out and short leg pointing towards the 555 ic into the eyes of the ghost.

5 Capacitor:


A capacitor is also polarized. When a capacitor is placed in the wrong orientation it might explode! There are also two ways we are shown the polarization: a white line on the side and a shorter leg. This is negative. The silkscreen on the pcb shows a positive and a white block. Make sure the shorter leg, close to the stripe on the capacitor, goes into the hole with the white block and the
long leg goes into the hole marked + in position C1.

6 Power:



Connect the red wire in position “PWR +” and the black wire in position “PWR –“ and you are all done!

Schematic:


Tips and tricks:


a) Solder the components in the order they were described to you, the “lowest” component to the “highest” component. This will help keep them in place. b) Bend the leads of the components “outwards” a bit, in order to help hold them in place.
c) Wipe the tip of the iron on a wet sponge every time you take it to solder.
d) Place the tip of the iron on the pad of the pcb against the component lead, wait half a second and then add the solder wire.
e) Do not add too much solder wire at a time, feed the wire slowly till you see the pad has enough solder

Soldering irons are hot so be very careful!

Tracking Robot Car Electronic DIY Kit With Reduction Motor (1D1 DIY track robot kit)


Tracking Robot Car Electronic DIY Kit With Reduction Motor





The assembly steps:


Step 1: Welding circuit

Soldering part is simpler, welding sequence according to the principle of component level from low to high, the first welding eight resistance, is important to use multimeter to confirm resistance is correct, D4, D5 R13 R14 can temporarily not welding, integrated circuit chips can temporarily not inserted

Step 2: Mechanical assembly

The red line is connected to the 3V positive power supply, the yellow line grounding, excess wire can be used for motor wire.

Step 3: The installation of a photoelectric circuit

Photosensitive resistance and light-emitting diodes (note polarity) is reverse-mounted on the PCB, and the ground distance is about 5 mm, both photosensitive resistance and light-emitting diodes are 5 mm distance. Finally, you can power test.

Step 4: Vehicle debugging

The right direction is along the universal wheel direction, if you press and hold the left photoresistor, the wheels on the right side of the car should be rotated. Press and hold the right photoresistor, the wheels on the left side of the car should be rotated, if the car driving back, can also exchange the wiring of two motors, if the one side normal and the other side back up, as long as you can swap wiring of back side.

Note: We don't supply any manuals please note this before you buy it.
