Welcome to ETC Educational Technology Connection (HK) Ltd!
A handy little breakout board that will allow you add XinaBox to your existing toolkit. Now you can add microSD support, or Wi-Fi, or perhaps even GPS or LoRa to your repertoire and supercharge your capabilities.
The XinaBox system includes more than 80 xChips and is growing all the time: you really don't need to use any other ecosystem for almost all of your needs.
But we understand that a lot of micro:bit users already have peripherals. Indeed, many of you told us that you want to be able to use XinaBox in conjunction with other kit: 3rd party sensors, displays, LEDs etc...
... and we listened:
The IX01 allows you to use PIN0 and PIN1 on the micro:bit to address connected peripherals, as shown in the pin diagram below:
Note: some xChips use PIN0 and PIN1, so you may need a bit of trial and error to find out which pin is available.

XinaBox is pronounced as X-in-a-Box!
The XinaBox range currently includes over 80 sensors, bridges, cores, interfaces and other types of peripherals, and it is growing all the time. These ‘xChips’ will help you to super-charge your BBC micro:bit:

The connection - plug and play, no wire
Build simple and complex circuits quickly and easily. The modular system allows you to connect xChips like building blocks - anyone can build a circuit in seconds, with no need for soldering irons, breadboards or consumables. And when you are done, disassemble the circuit and start again! It takes seconds when you know how.
