exhi:bit DIY Daughter Board for BBC Micro:Bit
So you’ve prototyped a great little project for the micro:bit but want to transfer this to a more permanent solution? then look no further!
This nice little board is laid out the same as a half-sized breadboard (like the one that comes with the exhi:bit). Once your project is ready and tested on the breadboard, you simply transfer the components over to this, pin by pin. Then solder them up, plug the completed board into the exhi:bit and your project are in a great permanent form that can be easily swapped out and stored.
We’ve given you a couple of nice big white areas on the board to write what the project is (no more wondering what this cool board you made a few years ago does!) and it also comes with all the male headers you need to solder it up.
We suggest you insert the male headers into the female header on the exhi:bit to hold them in the correct position. Then place the DIY Daughter board over and solder a couple of pins in place to ensure correct alignment.
We have included the footprint for a power indication LED and its resistor, but you don’t have to use these if you don’t want to.
