Pulse to Tick!

The processor and coding options are identical on BrainPad Pulse and BrainPad Tick. The edge pads are also compatible. The Tick is simply the right-half of the Pulse, keeping the circle pads P2, 3V and GND in the exact same location. The P0 and P1 circle pads are moved to the top.

The shape of the edge gives BrainPad Tick options for maximum connectivity. All pads starting P12 and up are available on the edge, including I2C Bus. The circle pads with holes can be connected using alligator clips. The smaller edge-pads can be used with PCB edge connectors.

Start now, no hardware necessary!

A try-before-you-buy can happen now with the available MakeCode online simulator. The simulator is made for BrainPad Pulse but all blocks work the same way, except the display blocks are ignored. So, what are you waiting for? Start coding now!

Go Green!

BrainPad Tick is commonly used alongside BrainPad Pulse. For this reason, BrainPad Tick does not ship with a carrying case or USB cable.
