micro:bit V2 is a brand new, super-charged version of the popular pocket-sized codeable computer, brought bang up to date with a microphone, speaker and upgraded processing capabilities.

With over four times the processing power and eight times as much RAM as the original micro:bit this new model opens up a world of new possibilities! We're especially excited about how well MicroPython will run on the new model where previously the limited RAM was a struggle.

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.

• On-board single-band 2.4GHz wireless interfaces (802.11n)
• Micro USB B port for power and data (and for reprogramming the flash)
• 40 pin 21mmx51mm 'DIP' style 1mm thick PCB with 0.1" through-hole pins also with edge castellations
   ◦ Exposes 26 multi-function 3.3V general purpose I/O (GPIO)
   ◦ 23 GPIO are digital-only, with three also being ADC capable
   ◦ Can be surface mounted as a module
• 3-pin ARM serial wire debug (SWD) port
• Simple yet highly flexible power supply architecture
   ◦ Various options for easily powering the unit from micro USB, external supplies or batteries
• High quality, low cost, high availability
• Comprehensive SDK, software examples and documentation
For full details of the RP2040 microcontroller please see the RP2040 Datasheet book. Key features include:
• Dual-core cortex M0+ at up to 133MHz
   ◦ On-chip PLL allows variable core frequency
• 264kByte multi-bank high performance SRAM
• External Quad-SPI Flash with eXecute In Place (XIP) and 16kByte on-chip cache
• High performance full-crossbar bus fabric
• On-board USB1.1 (device or host)

   ◦ Flexible, user-programmable high-speed I/O
   ◦ Can emulate interfaces such as SD card and VGA

NOTE - Raspberry Pi Pico W I/O voltage is fixed at 3.3V

Raspberry Pi Pico W provides a minimal yet flexible external circuitry to support the RP2040 chip: flash memory (Winbond W25Q16JV), a crystal, power supplies and decoupling, and USB connector. The majority of the RP2040 microcontroller pins are brought to the user IO pins on the left and right edge of the board. Four RP2040 I/O are used for internal functions: driving an LED, on-board switch mode power supply (SMPS) power control, and sensing the system voltages.

Pico W has an on-board 2.4GHz wireless interface using an Infineon CYW43439. The antenna is an onboard antenna licensed from ABRACON (formerly ProAnt). The wireless interface is connected via SPI to the RP2040.

Pico W has been designed to use either soldered 0.1-inch pin-headers (it is one 0.1-inch pitch wider than a standard 40-pin DIP package), or to be positioned as a surface mountable 'module', as the user I/O pins are also castellated. There
are SMT pads underneath the USB connector and BOOTSEL button, which allow these signals to be accessed if used as a reflow-soldered SMT module.

micro:bit GO Kit V2 (micro:bit V2 GO kit)



Please note: The batteries in the pic are not the supplied batteries. Please read the below description to see what is in the box.

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.
