Add 12-bit resolution digital-to-analog conversion to the development system using the DAC Board. Equipped with MCP4921 single-channel 12-bit DAC, this accessory board is intended for use with wide range of development boards and MCU device with 2x5 header. The digital-to-analog converter has an optional 2x buffered output and use serial SPI interface to communicate with the host microcontroller accessory board. The DIP switch enables the user to set which pins are used for MOSI and SCK. DAC Board also features on-board screw terminals to facilitate easy connections. It supports a wide range of power supply from 3.3V to 5V.
Designed for low noise performance and high accuracy, the DAC Board is an ideal choice for consumer and industrial applications where calibration or compensation of signals, such as temperature, pressure, and humidity, are necessary. It also makes an attractive choice for portable and battery-operated applications.
DAC Click Board
The mikroE DAC Click Board is an easy and compact accessory board featuring MCP4921, a 12-bit single-channel digital-to-analog converter. Designed to ensure high accuracy and low noise performance, the MCP4921 module is a suitable choice for industrial applications where calibration or compensation of signals, such as temperature, pressure, and humidity. It operates an optional 2x buffered output. DAC Click communicates with the target board microcontroller using the SPI interface. The board contains two analog output screw terminals: Vout and GND. These data are converted to the appropriate voltage level in the range between GND and REFERENCE (VCC or 4.096V), which is proportional to the received 12-bit number. The board is designed to operate a 3.3V power supply by default. The user can solder the PWR SEL zero-ohm SMD jumper to the 5V position when using with 5V systems.
With these features, DAC click is an ideal choice for applications like set point or offset trimming, precision selectable voltage reference, motor control feedback loop, digitally-controlled multiplier/divider, calibration of optical communication devices, and many more.
DALI Click Board
The DALI Click from mikroE is an accessory board intended to provide Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) to your design. This board enables the user to control your home/office lighting. DALI Click is equipped with two optocouplers, push button and screw terminals. For communication with the target board microcontroller, the board uses four mikroBUS lines (RST, CS, PWM and INT). DALI Click supports the use of either 3.3V or 5V power supply, selectable by an SMD jumper. A green LED indicates the presence of power supply. A yellow LED indicates RX activity.
DALI, a data protocol and transport mechanism, works as a true standard for professional digital lighting and lighting control. It allows easy integration of equipment from different vendors by offering a common platform while reducing installation costs.
DALI Click requires 2 wires to devices for data transfer between MCU and devices by means of asynchronous, half-duplex, serial protocol. There can be up to 64 DALI devices on a single DALI network. Sites requiring more than 64 devices can be addressed as DALI subsystem (gateways).
DC Motor Click Board
Add DC motor driver functionality to the design with the DC MOTOR click. 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?
Digital Potentiometer Board
The Digital Potentiometer Board is an additional board that employs a MCP41010 single-channel, 8-bit digital potentiometer with 10k?
DIP to PLCC44 Adapter Board
Convert a DIP40 PIC socket into PLCC44 PIC compatible socket using the DIP to PLCC44 Adapter Board. Designed for a rapid and trouble-free operation, a PLCC (Plastic Leaded Chip Carrier) adapter allows the user to use a PIC with the PLCC housing shape in a device that supports only DIP packaging. The high-quality, compact-sized adapter board can be used with any programming board featuring the DIP40 socket. Without this adapter board, no connection can be established between the plug shape of a programming device and the housing shape of a chip. A PIC microcontroller is placed into the adapter before the programming starts. The microcontroller can be pulled out of the adapter after programming is done. DIP to PLCC44 Adapter Board supports a wide range of PIC microcontrollers, which includes 16F74, 16F77, 16F871, 16F874A, 16F877A, 18F242, 18F252, 18F442, 18F448, 18F452, and 18F458. DIP to PLCC44 Adapter Board is suitable for testing the PLCC44 chips. The top side of board fits socket while the bottom side of PCB features two single row surface mount vertical headers. It allows easy and fast work with PICs in PLCC44 package.
