Q:
Help! I am trying to build an h bridge using this pin out board and my micro:bit. I want to drive two 6v motors forwards and backwards with the board and two h bridges build from pnp and npn transistors. I have been using the bc337 and bc327 but can not get it to work with the micro:bit. Any suggestions of where I could find an h bridge built from transistors that works?
Asked by: Stephen Clark
A:
Hi Stephen,

Thank you for your email, your best bet for an H bridge is our board on the link below. It uses two H bridges controlled by a chip on the board. It is not made of transistors but this definitely works for the motors you want to use.

Q:
What would be the recommendation for connecting a 12LED Neopixel ring to this board? Would it be easy/functional to connect it to one of the servo connections? Or would it be better to connect to the header pins? If so, are there specific header pins that we would need to connect it to? Thanks!
Asked by: Tim
A:
Hi Tim,

Thank you for your question, you should be able to connect them up with jumper cables. I would recommend connecting from Pin 0 as that is the default for the neo pixels.

Best Regards

Q:
How would I connect 2 motors on the single 3V output when i want them to work seperatly?
Asked by: dennis
A:
Hi Dennis, Unfortcunately the micro:bit can only provide a very small amount of current. As such you shouldn't try to drive something such as a motor directly from the micro:bit, instead you would be better using something like our Motor Driver Board
or All in one Robotics Board
to drive motors.

Hi James,

Thank you for your question I am afraid we do not have .stl files for this product that we can supply out to the public.

Q:
Could you please create a Fritzing part (.fzb) of this breakout board please?
Asked by: stuart
A:
Hello Stuart, I have looked into this and unfortunately this isn't something we are able to do currently as we don't have anyone who is able to create the part. However it may be something that we can revisit in the future.

Q:
Do I remove the green rubber stuff from the breakout board?
Asked by: Simon Law
A:
Hi Simon, Yes you should peel this off before using the breakout board. It is there only to protect the pads when the board is manufactured.

Q:
You don't populate pins 19/20 with male headers, but they are needed for i2c connection. Why is that?
Asked by: Romilly Cocking
A:

Hello Romilly, The rationale behind the design is this: The micro:bit has 21 connections, however it is not possible to buy a 2 x 21 section of pin header. The 2 x 20 way is however readily available, so the board was designed with the most common connections going to the 20 way break out. As for the two I2C pins, we wanted to include these for more advanced users of the board, but placed them to one side. Anyone that wants to connect to these pins can either permanently solder in to them or add their own pin header.

Q:
Can you supply a blank template inventor board diagram for students to use in class. We have received our kits and are delighted with them.
Asked by: Stuart
A:

Hi Stuart, I believe you are wanting a pin out of the edge connector board, you can use the datasheet page 1 and 2 which shows the pins on the micro:bit and a digital copy of the edge connector board.

Q:
Please can you supply an actual data sheet for the 40 way right angle connector from its manufacturer.


Many thanks

I am currently looking to obtain the datasheet for this and get it placed on the website. In the meantime what information are you looking for and I will try to find this out?
