The microbit is a board build for educational uses and large numbers are out there now. It combines an nRF51822 with an NXP/Freescale KL26Z which supports the mbed programming protocol.

We have ported our BASIC firmware to this device and it can be downloaded here.

To install that BASIC firmware connect the micro:bit and it will show up as a disk drive to the PC. Copy that binary to the micro:bit disk drive.

Once that is installed our standard BASICtools https://www.coridium.us/files/setupBASIC.exe can program the microbit in BASIC.

We are also working on a version of Blockly graphic programming tool that output BASIC for this as well as most of the other devices we support. This is a large download (about 150 MB), and is still a work in progress.
