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.
DC Motor Click Board
Add DC motor driver functionality to the design with the DC Motor Click Board. This compact add-on board is equipped with a DRV8833RTY H-Bridge motor driver and a 74HC4053 multiplexer that allows the user to run the motor with only one PWM line from the mikroBUS socket. The board also features two screw terminals (CN1, CN2) for secure connection. DC MOTOR click uses the SELECT1, SELECT2 and nSLEEP control lines, PWM input line and nFAULT feedback line to communicate with the target board microcontroller. It features two LEDs: a green power indicator, and a red one that signals an active nFault line (in case of a short circuit). DC MOTOR click supports either a 3.3V or 5V power supply, which can be provided either from the mikroBUS socket or externally through CN2 screw terminals (selectable via jumper). It is limited to a maximum of 0.9A driving current with 0.22?
DHT22 Click Board
The DHT22 click board from mikroelektronika is one of the simplest temperature and relative humidity sensor click board that carries the AM2302 sensor module, also known as DHT22. Concealed inside a plastic mesh packaging, the AM2302 temperature/humidity sensor needs just a single wire to communicate with the target board microcontroller. For added convenience, DHT22 click is provided with two jumpers (zero ohm resistors). While one of them allows the user to choose between the mikroBUS pin to use (either CS or INT pin, which are SDA1 and SDA2 lines), the other onboard jumper allows choice between 3.3V and 5V power supplies. The sensor generates the temperature/humidity data in a 16-bit resolution. The generated decimal number is 10 times the actual measurement, i.e., 216 would be 21.6 degrees centigrade. A minimum of 2-second interval is required between two successive sensor readings to acquire the most accurate measurement.
It is ideal for weather stations, HVAC systems, humidity regulators, and so on.
DIGI POT Click Board
The DIGI POT Click Board is a compact accessory board that incorporates a MCP4161 single-channel digital potentiometer. With a single resistor network, this digital POT features an 8-bit (256 wiper steps) resolution. DIGI POT click communicates with the target board microcontroller using industry standard SPI interface. DIGI POT click offers WiperLock Technology allows application-specific calibration settings to be secured in the EEPROM. The MCP4161 module is available with a resistor value of 10 k?
EEPROM 3 Click Board
The EEPROM 3 Click Board is a compact add-on board intended for designs that rely on I2C for writing, reading, and erasing. The board features Atmel
EEPROM Click Board
The EEPROM Click Board from mikroE is an add-on storage board that includes a 24C08WP serial EEPROM with 8 Kbits of memory. Driven by CMOS technology, this click board enables the user to add more 8 Kbit EEPROM memory to the device. An ideal choice for low power and low voltage applications, 24C08WP module is compatible with the I2C memory standard and uses a bi-directional data bus and serial clock. It is available in a DIP packaging. The DIP socket makes EEPROM easily replaceable. EEPROM click works well with both the 100 kHz I2C standard-mode and the 400 kHz I2C fast-mode. The board is designed to operate on 3.3V or 5V power supply, selectable by an SMD jumper. Another set of SMD jumpers that allow address selection are also available on the board. The green LED diode denotes the status of power supply.
The EEPROM click is an ideal selection for storing initialisation and configuration data of your device.
EnOcean Click Board
The mikroE EnOcean click is powered by the EnOcean TCM310 transceiver module that works as a bidirectional gateway for communication with EnOcean
