Product Description

4tronix Bit:2:Pi - No Battery Holder

The Bit:2:Pi enables you to re-use all those hundreds of Raspberry Pi addon boards and HATs.

Simply plug your Micro:Bit into the edge connector and the required Raspberry Pi Hat onto the GPIO connector, then program your Micro:Bit to control the new board. Most Raspberry Pi boards are very simple to program as they are controlled by simple on/off signals on the GPIO connector which are easily copied in the Micro:Bit. Also used is "Smart RGB" LED HATs (eg. Unicorn from Pimoroni) with great success and are happily communicating via I2C as well.

Selecting which Micro:Bit pin is connected to which GPIO pin, is via a set of configurable jumpers. There is a default set of connections that works for the most common boards, including I2C and SPI connections, but it is a simple matter to unplug a jumper or two, and replace it with a longer wire jumper (4 included) to connect your preferred pins.

Current boards tested are

  • 4tronix: PlayHat, Picon Zero, PiStop, motor controllers
  • Pimoroni: Pibrella, Unicorn pHat/HAT. Explorer, Enviro pHat, Blinkt, Scroll pHat

Power is supplied to the board and the micro:bit via the micro-USB connector on the side, but there is also an option to add a battery holder to allow completely wire-free operation.

Note: Does not Include BBC micro:bit. The BBC micro:bit can be purchased separately here.

Awesome service with super fast delivery. The chat option really helped me choose the products, know they were in stock and would be delivered in time. The items were posted the same day and I couldn't believe it when they arrived from Perth to Melbourne in 3 days! Thanks for your wonderful support - our students were able to complete their robotic projects in time.
