Kitronik Edge Connector Explained
The Kitronik Edge Connector Breakout Board for BBC micro: bit (Assembled) gives access to all of the important pins on the bottom edge of the BBC micro: bit. 21 pins are broken out in total, providing additional I/O lines, direct access to buttons A and B, the LED matrix outputs, and the I2C bus. Please refer to the datasheet below for more details.
The BBC micro: bit pins are broken out into a row of pin headers. These provide an easy way of connecting circuits using jumper wires. The SCL and SDA pins are separated at the edge of the board (solder pads) providing easy identification. The PCB includes a prototyping area with 3V, 0V, and unconnected rows that can be soldered to. This allows the easy connection of switches, sensors, and any pull-up or pull-down resistors, etc. as required.
The above images show you the pinouts of the BBC Micro: bit and if you look at the breakout connector board you'll notice that the pinouts match. So this should give you a good idea of where to plug in your jumper wires.
