Let students add some color to their next coding project with the ZIP Halo Board for the BBC micro:bit, a fully programmable, handheld computer perfect for STEM/STEAM programs that encourages students to get actively involved in writing software and building new things that will be controlled by it. Halo board has 24 ZIP LEDs that are individually addressable, full-color LEDs, meaning that each LED can display a huge spectrum of colors, allowing amazing colorful effects to be achieved. The ZIP LEDs are compatible with Adafruit® NeoPixel™ and other WS2812B driver code. Halo board bolts directly onto the BBC micro:bit with 5 secure, robust bolts. Extension connector pads (0.1 pitch) on the board allows more ZIP LEDs to be connected. The P1 and P2 micro:bit pins are also broken out to 1/8 in. pads along with power and GND. This allows for additional connections to low power components such as sensors and switches. The Halo Board provides power to the BBC micro:bit and can be connected using the JST input using a 3 AAA battery holder (not included), LiPo battery (not included), or JST lead (not included). A power supply can also be soldered directly to the solder pads on the PCB. Includes 5 counter sunk M3 6 mm screws. NOTE: BBC micro:bit is not included (see SB53386 for BBC micro:bit).
