AMP:BIT Class D Amplifier for BBC micro:bit with Headphone Jack

The Amp:bit is the easiest way to connect a speaker or headphones to your BBC micro:bit. The Amp:bit plugs on to the edge of your micro:bit and gives you the option of plugging headphones or speakers into the provided headphone jack, or you can solder speaker wires directly to the provided pads. The spacing is perfect for our 2 pin 3.5mm screw terminals.
If you have a speaker connected to the speaker pads, the speakers will automatically mute when something is plugged in to the headphone socket. We also give you a volume control wheel so you can adjust the volume whenever you like.
The Amp:bit also works great with our 1up:bit game controller!

    Simple to fit . No extra programming required!<br />Makes getting sound from the Micro:Bit very simple - No more croc clips !!<br /><br />Only minor wish is that the 3.5mm headphone socket was stereo.When using headphone sound only appears in one ear.<br /> I realise the Micro:Bit is Mono & I can use an external adapter so not really a problem!!
