Features

  • Upgraded processor (nRF52833)
    • 64MHz Arm Cortex-M4 + FPU (over 4 times faster!)
    • 512KB Flash storage on board
    • 128KB RAM
  • MEMS Microphone with LED indicator and on-board speaker
  • 5x5 LED matrix display
  • Touch sensitive logo "button"
  • Accelerometer/compass
  • Light and temperature sensors
  • Sleep/off mode for batteries powered projects (w/ LED indicator)
  • Up to 200mA of current for external accessories
  • Bluetooth 5.0 radio allowing micro:bits to talk to each other
  • Notched edge connector (easier to connect things like crocodile clips and conductive thread)
  • Dimensions: 52mm x 42mm x 11.7mm

It's the same shape and size so should be already familiar to countless teachers and learners, and also compatible with the vast majority of add-on boards and accessories.

How does the BBC micro:bit work?

It's programmed with beginner friendly, drag and drop interface MakeCode with the option to progress into MicroPython later on, opening up even more programming possibilities!

It's packed with inputs, outputs, sensors and radio communication features that can be combined into and endless variety of projects.

Inputs and outputs: An important part of any computer system. As a very small computer, the BBC micro:bit has plenty of inputs and outputs to learn about and use.

LEDs: An LED, or light-emitting diode is an output device that gives off light. Your BBC micro:bit has a display of 25 LEDs for you to program.

Buttons: A very common input device. Your micro:bit has two "clicky" buttons and a touch sensitive button you can program, and a reset button.

Radio: A way of sending and receiving messages and BBC micro:bits can use radio waves to communicate with each other.

Accelerometer: A motion sensor that measures movement. The accelerometer in your BBC micro:bit detects when you tilt it left to right, backwards and forwards and up and down.

Compass: An input sensor that detects magnetic fields. Your BBC micro:bit has an inbuilt compass that can detect the direction in which it is facing.

Light sensor: An input device that measures light levels. Your BBC micro:bit uses the LEDs to sense the levels of light and lets you program your micro:bit as a light sensor.

Temperature sensor: An input device that measures temperature. Your BBC micro:bit has a temperature sensor inside the processor which can give you an approximation of the air temperature.

Pins: On the bottom edge of your BBC micro:bit there are 25 gold strips, called pins. These pins allow you to really get creative. You can create circuits, connect external things like buzzers and motors and make your own fun projects.

Sound: Your BBC micro:bit can be programmed to make a wide variety of sounds - from single notes, tones and beats to your own musical compositions.

Requires:

  • microB USB Cable for programming
  • Computer/laptop with Internet access

Solar Power Starter Kit (KT solar starter kit)
Product Description

Learn how to harness the energy of the sun in your Electronics and Design and Technology projects with our new Solar Power Starter Kit. With this kit it is possible to build a simple solar charging and power supply system for a variety of useful low power devices.

As of 2017, renewable energy accounted for more than 25% of energy produced in the UK for the year. Environmental targets are such that this is set to increase year on year. Solar power is already a key player in the renewable energy market and there is the potential for it to grow much larger still. It has been estimated that covering just a fraction of the Sahara Desert in solar panels would provide enough electricity to power the energy needs of the whole world!

The Solar Power Starter kit itself is a simple kit to build and understand. Once the kit has been set up and placed in direct sunlight the batteries will begin to charge. If the light level is insufficient to facilitate charging, the diode prevents any of the charge held in the batteries from discharging back through the solar cell. The supplied switch enables you cut power to the kit that you are powering for greater recharging efficiency.

If used with the included Kitronik LED Desk Lamp Kit, for example, fully charged batteries will provide light for up to 17 hours, more than enough for a little light reading.

Note:

  • This kit requires assembly and some soldering.
  • The kit does not contain any connecting wire, you will need to use wire like Multi-stranded Wire.

Features:

  • Harness the energy of the sun and add simple solar charging and power supply to your low power devices.
  • Learn about renewable energy and how simple it can be incorporate into your designs.
  • A Small Signal Schottky Diode is supplied to protect against accidental discharging of the batteries through the solar cell.
  • Examples of Kitronik kits that can be used in conjunction with the Solar Power kit are;
    • 2155 5V LED Desk Lamp Kit-Included with the Solar Power Starter Kit.
    • 2157 FM Radio Kit V2.0.
    • 2165 Mono Amplifier Version 3.0.
    • 2162 USB Fan Kit.

Contents:

  • 1 x 5.0V 130mA Polycrystalline Solar Cell.
  • 1 x BAT41 Signal Diode.
  • 1 x SPST Toggle Switch.
  • 1 x 5V LED Desk Lamp Kit.
  • 1 x 3x AA Battery Holder with Flying Leads.
  • 3 x Rechargeable AA Battery (1300mA/h).

Solar Cell Dimensions:

  • Length: 58mm.
  • Width: 110mm.
  • Height: 3mm.
