PiBit Adapter

Convert Microbit Product to use Pi Zero

This adaptor board is designed for a Raspberry Pi Zero to attach. Then the complete assembly can be plugged into a standard Microbit Edge Connector.

The Adapter converts the 3.3V from the edge connector into the 5V required by the Raspberry Pi.

This product is specifically designed to be used on the 4tronix M.A.R.S. Rover for Microbit which uses 4 recharegable AA cells. (This is a simple solution - a better solution is to get a new mainboard for the Rover that is designed specifically for Pi Zero)

WARNING: Note that most Microbit products cannot provide enough current from the 3.3V connection to power the Raspberry Pi. If the Pi doesn't boot, the problem is with the incoming power supply, not with the PiBit board. Please don't purchase unless you are confident that there is plenty of current available and that the 3.3V supply won't drop during heavy use.

Microbit and Rover is not included.
