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

Containing 1x micro:bit and a Quick Start Guide in a single retail pack, this is the ideal option for makers to get started creating BBC micro:bit projects and inventing solutions (requires a USB cable for programming purposes, and a battery holder & 2x AAA batteries to power your BBC micro:bit if not connected to your computer - sold separately). 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:bit has a website full of coding languages, lesson plans, tutorials, and fun ideas

Dual micro B USB Power Cable (2C4 usb micro split cable)

Want to use your new Official Raspberry Pi 7" Touchscreen Display but need to keep your GPIO pins free? This handy little cable is just what you need!

We love the Raspberry Pi touchscreen but we hate to block up our GPIO! That's why we had these lovely little cables custom made, we figured you might like them too.

It's just 25cm long and capable of providing 2A combined current across the two male microB USB connectors. Keep your project neat and tidy while providing all the power you need for your Raspberry Pi, touchscreen, and GPIO attached gubbins!

  • 2A of current shared between both connectors
  • 25cm long
  • High quality cable with moulded microB USB connectors
  • Supplies power only (no data lines connected)
  • Use it to run/charge two microB devices at once!

We recommend using this cable with the Official Raspberry Pi Power Supply.

Serial to Micro USB adapter for Raspberry Pi Zero (Zero serial adapter)

RASPBERRY PI ZERO NOT INCLUDED

This solderless serial adaptor for the Pi Zero adds a micro USB port to the Pi's GPIO for serial connections! The board uses an FTDI FT234X IC, and Virtual COM port (VCP) drivers are available for many operating systems on the FTDI website.

Using solderless pins, the adapter slides onto the back of a Pi Zero GPIO with no soldering, but if a permanent connection is required, the adapter can still be soldered to the GPIO header.

The adapter PCB is printed with an alignment guide: Ensure the white SQUARE on the PCB is aligned with the GPIO pin with the SQUARE gold pad on the Pi Zero GPIO pin 1. It's advised to connect the adapter to the Pi Zero before connecting the USB cable to the adapter, to prevent the serial RX/TX pins being connected before the ground pin. Once connected the Pi Zero can be powered on/off without issue.

When using with the Cluster HAT you will need to cut the pins down so only a few millimeters stick through the Pi Zero and then file the ends round otherwise the adapter will short on the back of an adjacent Pi Zero. With use the pins may become worn and need adjustment to keep in good contact with the Pi Zero GPIO header.

This solderless serial adaptor for the Pi Zero adds a micro USB port to the Pi's GPIO for serial connections!
