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.
GSM Click Board
The GSM Click Board is an ideal solution to add GSM/GPRS communication layer to your project. This accessory board includes a Telit GL865-QUAD GSM/GPRS module that supports GSM/GPRS 850/900/1800/1900 MHz Quad-band frequency. It also incorporates a TXB0106 6-bit bidirectional voltage-level translator and a SIM CARD socket (SIM card not included) integrated on the bottom side of the board. Ideal for mobile devices, GSM click make use of the seven mikroBUS lines (RX, TX, INT, PWM, CS, RST and AN) to communicate with the target microcontroller. The GSM click board comes with a SMA antenna connector as well as 3.5mm quadrupole earphone/microphone jack.The board can use either 3.3V or 5V power supply, selectable via SMD jumper. It is soldered in 3.3V position by default. It has an LED diode that denotes the status of power supply.
To extend the functionality of the board at no additional cost, GSM click has additional features such as integrated TCP/IP protocol stack (including UDP, SMTP, ICMP and FTP), serial multiplexer, remote AT commands and more.

Hall Current Click Board
The Hall current click is a measurement add-on board intended to measure the current utilizing the Hall Effect. The board features a high-precision galvanically isolated TLI4970-D050T4 magnetic digital current sensor in a tiny footprint. The Hall current click board is equipped with two EXTreme ZPower connectors (IP- and IP+) to connect a conducting wire. Split the conducting wire and connect the ends to the two connectors. The current rail is galvanically isolated from the interface to the microcontroller to keep the surrounding circuitry safe. The sensor detects the strength of the current, then sends the measurement data to the target MCU through mikroBUS SPI (SDO, SCK and CS) lines.
Hall current click is based on contact-free measurement principle, which causes no additional power loss and makes it perfectly suited for high efficiency systems. It is designed to use a 3.3V power supply only. The board is an ideal choice for photovoltaic and general purpose inverters, power supplies (SMPS), battery chargers, lighting applications, and electrical drives.
Haptic Click Board
Bring tactile feedback back to your hardware design with the Haptic click, featuring the DRV2605 IC, a driver for ERM (Eccentric Rotating Mass) and LRA (Linear Resonant Actuator) vibration motors. The DRV2605 module incorporates an extensive library with over 100 licensed haptic effects. These consist of audio-to-vibe feature, where the motor vibrates in tune with the lower frequency range of an audio input. A 3.5mm audio jack is also integrated into the board to use this functionality. The board also has screw terminals for secure connection to the ERM and LRA motors. Haptic click communicates with the target microcontroller using the mikroBUS I2C (SCL, SDA), EN (in place of CS) and PWM pins. It uses a 3.3V or 5V power supply. The extensive range of effects also implies that the resources of the host MCU aren
