This motor driver board for the BBC micro:bit allows two motors to be driven simultaneously with forward, reverse & stop control, making it ideal for designs such as buggies. It is based on the DRV8833 motor driver IC, which has built-in short circuit, over current and thermal protection.

The board includes an integrated Edge Connector slot for your BBC micro:bit to easily slot into. It also features external connections to the button A and button B inputs. This allows additional switches/inputs to be connected to the motor driver board and the state of these can then be read by the BBC micro:bit.

There are 2 additional inputs/outputs. These can be used for connecting a range of parts and can be used in either digital or analogue modes.

The board also produces a regulated 3V supply that is fed into the 80 way connector to power the inserted BBC micro:bit, removing the need to power the BBC micro:bit directly

The board has been designed so that the BBC micro:bit can be inserted either way around (facing forward or backwards) however if you wish to use the broken out pins the LED matrix on the BBC micro:bit must be facing them.


  • Drive 2 motors with full forward, reverse and stop control
  • Terminal blocks for easy connection of motors and inputs
  • 4 inputs (2 analogue inputs and 2 provide external connections to Buttons A and B as inputs)
  • Includes Edge Connector for the BBC micro:bit to slot into
  • Provides regulated power to the BBC micro:bit
  • Access the other BBC micro:bit pins easily and conveniently
  • Ideal for designs such as buggies and other robotics projects
