Introduction

Note: This product is out of stock, the lead time is three months, sorry for the inconvenience.

Willkommen, Calliope Mini! Developed in Germany for students in primary school and up, this heavenly star-shaped development board is a souped-up derivative of the micro: bit.

The main chip on the Calliope is the same nRF51822 as the micro: bit so for many purposes, it can be programmed the same way. There are some big upgrades though!

Calliope Mini Development Board

Things that are the same as the micro: bit

  • Nordic nRF51822 Multi-protocol Bluetooth® 4.0 low energy / 2.4GHz RF SoC
  • 32-bit ARM Cortex M0 processor (16MHz)
  • 16kB RAM
  • 256kB Flash
  • Bluetooth low energy
  • 5x5 LED matrix display
  • USB Micro B connection (programming and power supply)
  • JST battery connector (3.3V)
