The SparkFun micro:bit Breakout is a board that connects to the BBC micro:bit and expands the capabilities of the development platform by providing access to more pins and allowing for connections to the I2C and SPI buses. This breakout board for the micro:bit’s edge connector allows intermediate and advanced users to connect the micro:bit to breadboards and other sensors, motors, LEDs and more!

The micro:bit on its own has three digital/analog input/output rings available for you to use initially with alligator clips. With the micro:bit breakout we have broken out all 21 GPIO pins, power and ground to a pre-soldered 0.1" header. With this breakout you will be able to unlock the full potential of your micro:bit!

Note: There is no micro:bit included with this breakout; it will need to be purchased separately. If you would like a micro:bit breakout without headers already soldered on, be sure to check out this board’s sibling.

Customer Reviews

  1. Review by Peter verified purchaser

    If you want to access more than the 3 big "pins" on the Microbit, this breakout board is the way to go. (Posted on 11/06/2018)

  2. Review by Phil verified purchaser

    Slight damage on delivery, easily repaired. However this really should have been picked up prior to packaging. (Posted on 19/11/2017)

  3. Review by Ivan verified purchaser

    You can use the micro:bit with alligator clips but then you only get a few outputs. This simple breakout allows you to access all the pins on the micro:bit and easily connect it to a breadboard. The micro:bit clips in and out easily. (Posted on 4/10/2017)
