      The BBC Micro Model B added ports, including the ‘Tube’ which allowed for the connection of other processors, including the ARM 1 RISC processor, which had been designed by Furber and Wilson. This expandability made the BBC Micro into a device that could be used in a great many applications. BBC BASIC is more than 35 years old. The general public first became aware of its existence at the beginning of , when the first Model A BBC Microcomputers went on sale and the first series of The Computer Programme was broadcast on BBC .

micro:bit. The Acorn Electron was a budget version of the BBC Micro educational/home computer made by Acorn Computers has 32 kilobytes of RAM, and its ROM includes BBC BASIC v2 along with its operating system. The Electron was able to save and load programs onto audio cassette via a supplied converter cable that connected it to any standard tape recorder that had the CPU: Synertek SYA clocked at 2MHz.

This book is an introduction to MicroPython (an implementation of Python for microcontrollers) and uses the BBC micro:bit as a learning platform.

The first couple of chapters are a basic introduction to the micro:bit and how to set up the MicroPython programming environment Mu/5. Most of the emulators that are currently in development now come pre-packaged with all of the appropriate Operating System system roms.

However, for some of the older releases, you may need to download the relevant system roms separately (specifically OS, BASIC and possibly a DFS Rom). These are available on the Roms page.The micro:bit is the most recent project by the BBC in an effort to bring computer science education and STEM topics to every student in the United Kingdom.

It is an open development board that works in sync with other onboard hardware components to get you started down the path of programming hardware. Introducing the BBC micro:bit - BBC Make.
