mikroE Click Boards
Click Boards™ offer simple and inexpensive way to evaluate and incorporate interfaces into your microntroller-based system. Over 185 different models have been created so far and the list grows weekly.
Developed by MikroElektronika (mikroE), Click Boards™ connect to your microcontroller via the MikroBUS™. a powerful interface common to all models. MikroBUS™ is evolving into a standard within the embedded systems market and is being taken up by many other manufacturers.
Why Click Boards™?
They provide a standard way of adding evaluating new interface devices. MikroElektronika design and manufacture Click Boards™ for device manufacturers to offer a simple way of using their devices. They are compatible with all MikroE development boards, supporting a wide range of microcontroller types including ARM Cortex, AVR, PIC, PIC32, dsPIC, FT90x and 8051. MikroE models are also fully supported by MikroE complers and toolsets and example application code is created to enable you to start using your new Click Board™ straight away This can significantly reduce the learning curve normally associated with the introduction of new technology.
Incorporate MikroBUS™ into Your Own Design
There are many good reasons to want to offer extendability to your own board designs:
- To allow other interfaces to be added to your own system without having to redesign your hardware.
- Test the market for additional functionality at minimal outlay
Although mikroBUS™ is a trademark of mikroElektronika, they allow you to incorporate the bus layout into your design as long as the silkscreen is clearly labeled "mikroBUS™" and includes the mikroBUS™ logo.
Third Party Support
Many leading semiconductor manufacturers are now offering MikroBUS™ interfaces on their development platforms allowing our models to be used wherever you need them.
3D Hall Click Board
Detect presence of any magnet in nearby space using the mikroE 3D Hall Click Board. This add-on board features the MLX90333 Triaxis Hall sensor, which acts as a contactless position sensor for any type of magnet. It senses the position of a nearby magnet by being sensitive to three components of flux density (BX, BY, BZ). 3D Hall click measures the rotational, linear and 3D displacement with a high degree of precision. The contactless coupling ensures resistance against wear and tear and environmental contaminants like dust and dirt. The MLX90333 sensor on the 3D Hall click includes the Integrated Magnetic concentrator (IMC), which makes it a better alternative to any other conventional Hall sensor. It is capable of deriving the signal for all the three axes by arranging two pairs of Hall sensors in a cross shape. 3D Hall click uses the mikroBUS SPI interface (CS, SCK, MISO, MOSI) for communication with the target board MCU. Each MLX90333 chip has a 40-bit ID number. This click board provides 16-bit resolution positional data. It uses a 5V power supply only.
With these features, 3D Hall click is an ideal choice for designing 3D position sensor, joystick, 4-way scroll key, joypad, man machine interface device, linear position sensor, and many more.

4-20 mA R Click Board
The 4-20mA R Click Board from mikroE is an accessory board that provides a simple solution to add 4-20mA industry standard communication protocol to your design. Offered in a compact package, this click board is intended to serve as a receiver in a 4-20mA current loop standard. It receives output current (4-20mA) from transmitter and changes it into a voltage ranging from 0.4V to 2V. The voltage is then converted into a 12-bit data signal in the MCP3201 Analog-to-Digital convertor.
It communicates with the target board microcontroller through mikroBUS SPI (SDO, SCK, CS) and EN lines. The 4-20mA R click board has a voltage output INA196 current shunt monitor, 12-bit resolution MCP3201 ADC and a high-frequency TPS61041 boost converter. It also features onboard screw terminal meant for easy connection. A complete 4-20mA current loop standard can be formed with the combination of this add-on receiver board with the 4-20mA T click board.
Ideal for using in field of industrial process control and test systems, this 4-20mA click board works as an interface between sensors or instruments attached to microcontroller. It is designed to use either 3.3V or 5V power supply, selectable via SMD jumper (in 3.3V position by default). An LED indicates the presence of power supply.
4-20 mA T Click Board
The 4-20mA T Click Board from mikroE is an accessory board to provide an easy solution to add 4-to-20mA industry standard communication protocol to the user design. Offered in a small package, this click board is intended to serve as a transmitter in a 4-20mA current loop standard. It receives the input digital signal from the host microcontroller and sets the output loop current (4-20mA). The 4-20mA T click board has an ADuM1411 Quad-channel digital isolator, 12-bit single channel MCP4921 DAC and a XTR116 4-20mA current loop transmitter. It also features onboard screw terminal meant for easy connection. 4-20mA T click communicates with the target board microcontroller through mikroBUS SPI (SDO, SCK, CS) and EN lines. A complete 4-20mA current loop standard can be formed with the combination of this add-on transmitter board with the 4-20mA R click board.
It is designed to use either 3.3V or 5V power supply. An LED denotes the status of power supply.
