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.

Methane Click Board
The Methane Click Board makes it simple for the user to add a highly sensitive methane (CH4) sensor to his design. This add-on board comes equipped with an MQ-4 sensor for measuring methane, two jumpers and a power indicator LED. It has also got a calibration potentiometer and a mikroBUS host socket. The range in which Methane click can precisely detect the methane levels is from 200 to 10000ppm of concentrations. The MQ-4 sensor features a gas sensing layer constructed of tin dioxide which is an inorganic compound with the formula SnO2. Tin dioxide is known to have lower conductivity in clean air. As the percentage of methane increases in the environment, the conductivity rises too. The potentiometer enables the user to adjust the load resistance of the sensor circuit so that methane click may be calibrated for the intended surroundings. As the concentration of the target gas changes, the resistance of the sensor component also gets changed.
Methane click finds its application in designing of gas leakage equipment. Being suitable for detecting methane concentration, Methane click can be used in the devices like domestic gas leakage detectors, industrial combustible gas detectors and portable gas detectors.

MOTION Click Board
Give your design the infrared motion detector functionality with the Motion Click Board. Designed to respond only to living bodies, this click board features PIR500B, a pyroelectric infrared radial sensor that generates a voltage when exposed to infrared light. It is connected to a BISS0001 motion sensor controller IC processes the signal and sends an interrupt to the host MCU via the mikroBUS INT (out) line. MOTION click also includes an onboard potentiometer that enable the user to adjust the detection range (up to 4 metres). Using the mikroBUS RST pin of the host microcontroller, the user can turn the potentiometer on/off by sending signals. The photo resistor aboard MOTION click that allows the user to set up the sensor to work only when it's dark. The night-only mode can be activated by using a jumper (zero-ohm resistor) below the photo resistor on the left side of the board. MOTION click is designed to support only a 3.3V power supply
It is commonly used in human motion detector applications like burglar alarms, but the user can apply this concept to make lights switch ON as soon as someone enters the room, or restricting persons from entering a certain area.
MP3 Click Board
The MP3 Click Board is an easy and compact accessory board that incorporates a versatile VS1053 stereo MP3 decoder chip. Designed to add MP3 feature, the VS1053 IC allows the user to decode all the commonly used formats (including the new AAC format). The formats include Ogg vorbis, MP3, MP1, MP2, MPEG4, WMA, FLAC, WAW, and MIDI. It also allows encoding of three different formats (Ogg vorbis, IMA ADPCM, 16-bit PCM) from microphone line in mono or stereo. MP3 click utilize the industry-standard SPI line for communication with the target board microcontroller. This click board also includes stereo headphone and microphone audio connectors. It is designed to use a 3.3V power supply only.
MP3 click is an easy-to-use, powerful workhorse for audio playback and recording applications, including MP3 players, audio signalization devices, voice recorders, and many more.

NFC Tag Click Board
The NFC Tag Click Board is an accessory add-on board from MikroElektronika carrying an M24SR64 NFC/RFID tag IC with a dual interface. It is embedded with a highly-reliable 8KB EEPROM memory. The user can operate NFC Tag click in three different ways: via I2C interface, with a 13.56MHz RFID reader, and with an NFC-enabled smartphone, tablet, or similar device. The RF protocol is compatible with both NFC Forum Type 4 Tag and ISO/IEC 14443 Type A. The click board communicates with the target board microcontroller using mikroBUS I2C (SCL, SDA), INT and RST lines.
The NFC (Near Field Communications) Tag click features a PCB antenna that operates at a very close range (around 3cm), which makes it quiet secure as for developing mobile payment systems (some credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Wallet, etc.), or any short-range wireless data exchange. NFC Tag click is designed to use a 3.3V power supply only.
nRF C Click Board
Introduce a 2.4 GHz transceiver to your design with the nRF C Click Board! MikroElektronika has introduced a compact add-on board that incorporates the nRF24L01P 2.4 GHz transceiver module with an embedded baseband protocol engine.
