  • Edge Connector for easy connection of the BBC micro:bit
  • On/off switch
  • Blue power indicator
  • 6 multi-colour FireLeds

Pin Connections

  • Speaker: Pin 0 (*)
  • Dial: Pin 0 (*)
  • Joystick X: Pin 1
  • Joystick Y: Pin 2
  • Joystick button: Pin 8
  • FireLeds: Pin 13
  • Red Button: Pin 12

(*) Pin 0 is used both for Speaker output (using the Music or Tone output methods) as well as the Dial analog input. This causes some compromises - most notable of which is that the Dial analog input cannot reach its normal maximum value of 1023 and stops at around 850 instead. As long as the software understands this, then it shouldn't be a problem.

NB. The Bit:Commander is only powered if batteries are fitted and it is switched on. Powering the micro:bit does not power the Bit:Commander. However, when the Bit:Commander is powered up, then it will also power the micro:bit
