MB0102 Keyestudio Microbit Main Board +USB Cable+Battery Holder with Batteries
Micro: bit is a microcontroller of ARM structure designed by BBC.This main board, only half size of a credit card, aims to facilitate teens programming education with its built-in Bluetooth, an accelerometer, an electronic compass, a temperature detection sensor, a speaker, a microphone, three buttons, a touch-sensitive logo, a 5 x 5 LED dot matrix, etc.
And this basic starter kit which includes a micro: bit control board, 1m USB cable and a battery holder (2 AAA batteries included, wire length 160mm)is designed for you to easily use micro:bit.
(Please note that the USB cable is for uploading program to micro:bit and the 2 AAA battery holder is for power supply.)
Instructions for Programming
The Micro:bit programming environment includes both online programming tools and local programming tools.Here we want to introduce how to program via the Google browser.
First, log on the official website of makecode https://makecode.microbit.org/ to use the network module to start the graphical programming, as shown below:
Name the program as”LED1” and click icon “” to save it;
You can see the corresponding file in the C drive, as shown below:
Connect the micro: bit main board to your computer with the USB cable. The computer will automatically recognize the installed driver, so no manual operation is required. Then find the file “microbit-LED1” in the C drive disk and send it to “MICROBIT(G)”. The code is uploaded.
When the Micro:bit main board is powered up, the 5*5 LED dot matrix on it display the pattern.
You can power it via USB cable or 2 AA 1.5V batteries.
Power via USB Cable
