This affordable, ready-assembled robotics controller board is ready to accept your BBC Micro:Bit, battery power (6 to 10V) and motors of your choice to make your own DIY robot. Use a small box, ice-cream carton or similar to house everything and you can build a really affordable robot for your school, coding club or home.

Drive:Bit uses the ever popular DRV8833 motor driver which allows you to use most small motors that operate in the 6V - 9V range.

The Drive:Bit includes a power switch, indicator LED and features a single FireLed for status indication. All the useful Microbit pins are brought out to pads along the top of the board, with P0, P1, P2 and P8 being made available with 3-pin GVS (Ground, Voltage, Signal) headers, making it easy to connect to 3V sensors and even small micro servos.

The motor and power connections can be made through the 2-pin screw terminals OR by using the 2-pin male headers behind each terminal.

Search for "DriveBit" in Microsoft Makecode for the special extension that makes this really easy to use.
