Q:
Worth pointing out that the graphic in the middle of this page (how to plug the micro:bit into the breakout board) implies that pin 9 is not brought through to the header pins where in reality it is, as per the photo at the top of the page.
Asked by: Nigel Kendrick
A:

Firstly thank you for pointing this out, we were aware of this error and we are in the process of changing the diagram shown on the product page. We hope to update this shortly.

Q:
Hi there,
Where Do I find the schematics of the micro:bit? (I need to know which pins connect to each output), thanks
Asked by: Marcelo Correa
A:

The following datasheet shows what pins on the BBC micro:bit relate to the pin on the breakout board via a number, you need to look at page 2 https://www.kitronik.co.uk/pdf/5601_edge_connector_breakout_board_for_the_bbc_microbit_datasheet_1_0.pdf

Q:
There's something of a loose fit between the connector and the board, is it expected that I should solder the 80 pins into place (or at least the ones I need)?
Asked by: Tom
A:

We would always advise that all the pins are soldered together, however as a minimum we would recommend that the first two rows are completely soldering, and then a selection from the back row are also soldered in.

Q:
Why is it an 80 way connector? I understood that there were about 25 lines coming out to the edge of the board and all the pictures seem to confirm this. Are there separate lines on each side of the board, which if there were would still only bring it up to 50.
Asked by: David
A:

The connector itself has 80 pins, the BBC micro:bit that it is designed to fit only uses 40 pins, of those only 22 or so are broken out as not all of the pins have functions we expect people to want to use.
