    REKA:BIT is the little sibling of EDU:BIT, which was 575% funded on KICKSTARTER on Oct 22, 2020.

    With the fundamental concepts acquired from EDU:BIT's 10+1 hands-on lessons, one is able to bring it further to apply the knowledge in creating more fun applications and even solving real-life problems with this micro:bit expansion board. Its much smaller board size is perfect for building innovation projects for schools and competitions, or even just to tame your cravings for DIY and making.

    Program your REKA:BIT with Microsoft MakeCode Editor. Just add REKA:BIT MakeCode Extension and you’re good to go. If you’re a beginner, you can start with the block programming mode; simply drag, drop and snap the coding blocks together. For more advanced users, you can easily switch into JavaScript or Python mode on MakeCode Editor for text-based programming.


    REKA:BIT possesses a lot of indicator LEDs to assist your coding and troubleshooting. It covers the IO pins connected to all six Grove ports and DC motor outputs from the co-processor. One is able to check his/her program and circuit connection easily by monitoring these LEDs.


     

    Besides, REKA:BIT also has power on/off indicator, undervoltage and overvoltage LEDs built-in to give appropriate warnings should there be any problem with the power input.

    REKA:BIT features a co-processor to handle multi-tasking more efficiently. Playing music while controlling up to 4x servo motors and 2x DC motors, animating micro:bit LED matrix and even lighting up RGB LEDs in different colors, all at the same time, is not a problem for REKA:BIT.


     

    Features:

    • 2x DC motor terminals
      • built-in motor quick test buttons (no coding needed)
    • 4x Servo motor ports
    • 2x Neopixel RGB LEDs
    • 6x Grove port (3.3V)
      • 3x Analog Input / Digital IO ports
      • 2x Digital IO ports
      • 1x I2C Interface
    • DC jack for power input (3.6 - 6VDC)
    • ON/OFF switch
    • Power on indicator
    • Undervoltage (LOW) indicator & protection
    • Over-voltage (HIGH) indicator & protection

    UNTUK SIRAM POKOK ADA TAK FULL TOTURIAL? ( FAKRUL , 09/01/2022 )
    Hi. Boleh cuba tutorial ni: https://tutorial.cytron.io/2021/07/22/automatic-plant-watering-system-using-rekabit/
    i want to use an ultrasonic sensor hc-sr04, but it needs 5v vcc,
    what can i do? seems the vcc from the extension port is limted to just 3v?

    ( farid, 30/12/2021 )
    Hi. you can use ultrasonic 3V version, SN-HC-SR04P
    IS REKA Bit compatible with bluetooth?
    ( Tester, 12/08/2021 )

    No, REKA:BIT uses the Neopixel RGB LEDs which requires accurate timing. The micro:bit will not handle Neopixel and Bluetooth protocol fast enough at the same time, either one will not function properly. However, there's an easy way to establish a wireless connection in this case. You may use another micro:bit and the Radio MakeCode blocks to enable remote control function.

    Please take a look at this FAQ on micro:bit support site https://support.microbit.org/support/solutions/articles/19000068302-why-can-t-i-use-the-bluetooth-and-neopixel-packages-at-the-same-time-
