exhi:bit prototyping system for micro:bit

exhi:bit is a prototyping and development system for the micro:bit that allows Makers or students to go seamlessly from a prototype to a finished, more permanent project.

Plug your micro:bit into the edge connector socket on exhi:bit and you're ready to start creating! All of the micro:bit pins are broken out to header connectors and generous pads on the edge of the board - so you can connect to your project with jumper jerky, conductive thread, banana jacks, or crocodile clips.


  • edge connector socket to connect your micro:bit
  • micro:bit pins broken out to headers and pads
  • use jumper jerky, conductive thread, banana jacks, or croc. clips
  • breadboard for temporary projects
  • prototyping area for permanent projects
  • powered via 5-9V barrel jack power supply (not included), or micro USB
  • area for notes

Use the prototyping area to create permanent projects or the breadboard for more temporary ones.

You can use a 5-9V DC power supply (not included) to power your circuits or the microB USB port (it can't be used to program the micro:bit, just to supply power!)

There's even a handy area for writing notes on, with a Sharpie or similar marker, so that you know exactly what your project is, or who created it!

Update: Proto-PIC listened to some customer feedback and updated a couple of parts. Firstly they have changed the acrylic plate so it's just covering the prototyping area and included 4 nuts and screws to secure it in place. This is a far less delicate part and shouldn't be broken as easily while now letting you write on the notes section without removing the entire plate first. Secondly they've replaced the hard plastic standoffs with adhesive rubber feet, this should help keep the exhi:bit from sliding on your desk.
