The Resistive Touch Breakout is designed to make the resistive touch capabilities of the BBC micro:bit much easier to access and use.
The board breaks out pins 0, 1 and 2 from the BBC micro:bit to circular pads. These pads are ideally sized for fingertips to make a connection across the particular pin and GND, thereby making the ‘touched’ connection.
The board can be connected to a BBC micro:bit by using jumper cables from the installed pin header to a breadboard, or by soldering wires across to a BBC micro:bit edge connector breakout.
Code can be written for the board using the MakeCode editor with blocks that are a part of the editor as standard. Examples of how to write code for the board can be found in the Datasheet.
The board also features two M3 mounting holes at either end for fixing the board to a project or surface.
