How does it work?
The micro:bit offers a range of on board functionality including 2 push buttons, a 25 LED matrix, an accelerometer and a compass.
As standard the micro:bit has five 4mm I/O rings that can be connected to using 4mm banana plugs, crocodile clips and nuts and bolts.
A limitation of the I/O rings is that there are only 3 inputs and outputs, power and ground. As a result this can limit the amount of components and accessories that can be connected. The micro:bit has what is known as an edge connector which offers a multitude of extra analogue and digital inputs and outputs as well as spi, i2c and serial ports.
