micro:bit Expansion Board for Boson (Gravity Compatible)

SKU:DFR0521 Brand:DFRobot Reward Points: 79
* Model:


micro:bit is a pocket-sized microcontroller designed for kids and beginners to learn coding and electronics, letting them easily bring ideas into DIY digital games, interactive projects and robotics.

However, on-board I/O rings and crocodile clips sometimes are not handy and safe enough to connect peripherals. To explore more possibilities with micro:bit, we have designed the micro:bit Expansion Board for Boson, a carry-on board that connects to micro:bit via edge connector.

Moreover, the on-board 3.5MM headphone jack and volume knob supports direct connection of headphone.
To ensure a steady current supply for these peripherals, the expansion board can be powered externally through the USB power port.

    Project 1. Micro:bit Surprise box
    In this project it shows how the box interacts with flahsing hearts.
    Main Components:

    How can a Halloween without a pumpkin lamp? The pumpkin lamp made of recently popular Microbit is a good choice.

    Project 3: A colorful grapefruit made use of micro:bit
    As a trickster for Halloween, how can we lack an ingenious pumpkin lantern as an equipment?
    Hardware components: 
    Needle, utility knife, chopsticks or small wooden stick, scrap wire or wire, wool

    Microbit Project 4: Micro:bit Light(Mood Lamp)

    After programming the micro:bit, you can plug in power to Vin. The Vin will power the micro:bit.
