Flip&Click Board SAM3X
The Flip n Click Board™ from MikroE has just been released. It was nnounced at this year's Rome Maker Fair to wide acclaim. It is basically an Arduino board based on the same 32-bit AT91SAM3X8E CPU with an Arm Cortex M3 architecture with the usual Arduino expansion capabilities (The Blue Side).
However, the back of the board (The White Side) of the Flip n Click is fitted with four MikroBus sockets. This allows up to four Click Board™s to be fitted and run simultaneously, significantly enhancing the Arduino's expansion capabilities. Over 200 Click Board™s are now available from MikroElektronika, and stocked by The Debug Store, more than any other reseller!
- Arduino compatible board
- Up to 4 Click Interface Boards can be connected to back of the Flip n Click
- Over 170 different click boards available from The Debug Store
- Behaves like an Arduino and will run the same software
- Designed and manufactured by the MikroElekronika in Europe
Arduino's Close Cousin
The Flip and Click Board™ shares a lot of Arduino DNA. It behaves in the same way as an Arduino and will run the same software.
The Blue Side of the board closely resembles the standard Arduino Board making it compatible with a range of Arduino shields. All pins work with 3.3V logic, just like the Arduino Due.
Based on the Atmel AT91SAM3X8E MCU
The same microcontroller is used on the Flip and Click as the standard Arduino board. This means you can be confident that if you have developed code for the Arduino, it will also run on the Flip and Click Board™.
Start Using Click Board™s
Click Board™s are a great way of connecting your Flip and Click to the real world. In many cases you will not need to wire up a board to provide an interface as it will already be supported by a Click Board™. Click Board™s are inexpensive and fully supported by MikroElektronika Development Tools. Each board is also supplied with example code so you can get started using the board straight away. Many examples are available on MikroElektronika's GitHub channel with more being added all the time.
The back of the Flip-n-Click Board™ (The White Side) has four mikroBUSsockets along with four LEDs and a reset button. As some Click Board™s use 3.3V and others 5V, both power supplies are connected to each mikroBUS socket.
The board is fitted with two micro-USB ports. One is used for programming and the other can be used to connect to other devices.
