The BBC micro:bit is the spiritual successor of the BBC Micro of the 1980s, which itself introduced a generation of children to computing. The BBC micro:bit carries on this 30 year tradition and does it 18 times faster and is 70 times smaller than its predecessor.
Based around a 32 bit ARM Cortex-M0 processor, the BBC micro:bit also features on board accelerometer and compass sensors, Bluetooth Low Energy and USB connectivity, a display consisting of 25 LEDs, two programmable buttons and it can be powered by either USB or an external battery pack. The device inputs and outputs are through five ring connectors that are part of the 21-pin edge connector.

Our good friend, David Booth, has designed and built a microbit lap counter for a Scalextric type car track and we think it's fantastic. Learn how he did it and make your own.
As we've recently added a 360 degree continuous rotation servo to our range of stocked products, we thought it would be useful to do a quick tutorial on how to control one using a BBC microbit.
This resource consists of a selection of links to the additional resources that we have created to accompany each of the experiments. Each experiment has a walk-through video that also contains hints and tips designed to help you complete the experiment and to understand how the circuits work, we have also included links to additional code examples.
In this tutorial we are going to highlight how easy it is to code the BBC micro:bit as an instrument tuner. We will focus mainly on making a Guitar tuner but we will also provide download links for several different types of tuner.
In this tutorial we are going to look at how to control a servo using the BBC micro:bit via an Edge Connector Breakout Board for the BBC micro:bit. It’s super simple to set up and requires very few parts.
