Description

The Kitronik ZIP Tile is an 8 x 8 display panel for the BBC micro:bit. It features 64 colour addressable LEDs arranged in an 8 x 8 grid, ZIP LED expansion points on the left, right and top of the board, and the ability to connect a BBC micro:bit with both bolts and croc clips. It also breaks out P1 & P2 to standard 0.1” (2.54mm) footprints. Each of these pins also have the required supply voltage and GND pads.

This Kitronik ZIP Tile can scroll text, show all the colours of the rainbow (and more). Also, multiple tiles can be linked to make even bigger displays!

A JST connector on the back of the board provides power. The board generates a regulated supply that powers the connected BBC micro:bit via the 3V and GND connections, eliminating the need to power it separately. The ZIP LEDs will not illuminate to protect the BBC micro:bit if power is supplied through it.

Requires:

  • A BBC micro:bit (available as an optional extra)
  • A power supply of between 3.5V and 5.3V
