The Buck-Boost 3 Click Board™ is a voltage converter/regulator, which is able to provide a regulated voltage of 3.3V or 5V on the output, even when the input voltage drops under 3V. This is possible thanks to the ISL85403, a specialised buck-boost voltage converter IC which features an integrated high-side MOSFET and a low-side driver, that can be used to drive an external MOSFET. Buck-Boost 3 Click Board™ perfectly suited to provide power with regulated voltage for embedded applications, points of load, or to be used as the battery voltage regulator, or in similar general-purpose power applications that require regulated 3.3V or 5V power supply.
The Color 2 Click Board™ is a compact add-on board that allow the user to introduce colour sensing functionality to the design. It features an ISL29125 RGB colour light sensor that aids user to detect red, green and blue in a variety of lighting conditions. It outputs data from 5.7m lux-10,000 lux, providing an accurate spectral response by converting colours into 12 or 16-bit data. The user can select the range (narrower vs. wider bandwidth) and output resolution (12 vs. 16 bit).
Featuring an integrated ADC, the colour 2 Click Board™ rejects 50Hz and 60Hz flicker from artificial light sources. Along with that, ISL29125 chip has an IR blocking filter, which means it can reliably operate under dark glass covers. colour 2 Click Board™ communicates with the target microcontroller through the MikroBUS I2C interface (SCL and SDA pins). A programmable interrupt pin provides additional functionality. It works using a 3.3V power supply only.
The colour 2 Click Board™ is an ideal choice for an ambient light colour detector, dynamic display colour balancing, OLED display ageing compensation, printer colour enhancement and much more.
The PLL Click Board™ is a frequency multiplier which uses the Phase-Locked Loop (PLL) techniques to provide a high-frequency clock output from a cheap, standard fundamental mode crystal oscillator. In addition to this, PLL Click Board™ also offers a choice between nine different multiplication factors, programmed via states of the two input pins. The output range of the PLL Click Board™ goes up to 160MHz.
The RAQ Click Board™ is a compact add-on board targeted for use in refrigeration air quality (RAQ) applications. This board features the ZMOD4450, a gas sensor module designed for detecting gases associated with food ripening or rotting from Renesas Electronics Corporation. The module’s sense element consists of a heater element on a silicon-based MEMS structure and a metal temperature sensor. It measures the MOx conductivity, which is a function of the gas concentration, and measurement results read via the I2C interface. This Click board™ makes an excellent choice for various applications like refrigerator systems control or as monitors for fruit and vegetable quality, shipping, and storage conditions.
RAQ Click is supported by a mikroSDK compliant library, which includes functions that simplify software development. This Click board™ comes as a fully tested product, ready to be used on a system equipped with the mikroBUS™ socket.
