Breadboard breakout for the BBC micro:bit


Elmwood Electronics has stopped accepting orders. This product might be available at PiShop.ca. Please check this blog post about our recent team merger.

The Breadboard breakout for the BBC micro:bit allows the user to plug a BBC microbit into a standard 2.54mm pitch breadboard. Two 11 way pin headers are used to make connections into the breadboard.

The micro:bit slots into the edge connector on the top side of the PCB. No extra tools are required for installation. The front of the BBC micro:bit (the side with the LEDs) should be inserted facing the same side as the 3V pin.

The edge connector has connections on only one side, so if the BBC micro:bit is inserted in reverse orientation, it will not work.

The PCB is designed to plug across the middle slot of a breadboard, the same placement as an IC component.


  • The microbit slots into the on-board edge connector.
  • This breakout board plugs straight across the middle slot of a standard 2.54mm pitch breadboard, just like an IC component.
  • The microbits pins are broken out to 2 x 11 way header pins.
  • Use jumper wires to connect from the header pins to the breadboard.
  • No tools or soldering required for installation.
  • microbit to breadboard prototyping made easy.


  • 1 x Breadboard breakout for the BBC micro:bit.


  • Length: 58.4mm.
  • Width: 12.8mm.
