MicroElektronika (mikroE) is a dynamic forward thinking embedded systems development tools company with its headquarters in Belgrade.
The company is unique by producing complete development tool suites; ranging from compilers, debuggers, development platforms and training materials for a wide range of microcontroller families including ARM Cortex, AVR, PIC, PIC32, dsPIC and FT90x architectures. Support is also directly available for a huge range of peripheral devices including displays, video cameras, temperature probes and multi-axis gyroscopes and accelerometers by the provision of low-cost Click Modules. Their objective is to make the transition for the developer to a new architecture as simple and efficient as possible. It achieves this by providing software library support and working examples for all supported interfaces and development systems.
MikroElektronika (mikroE) have been chosen as the development tool company of choice by many major semiconductor manufacturers as they appreciate the use of mikroE tools will speed up development of new projects. They are recognised third-party development partners of companies such as Atmel, Cypress, Microchip, STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments and official consultants to others including NXP.
LightHz Click Board
The mikroE LightHz Click Board is an easy and compact solution to add light-to-frequency conversion functionality to your project. This add-on board features a TSL230BR programmable light-to-frequency converter, which provides high-resolution conversion of light intensity to frequency without requiring external components. All inputs and the output are TTL compatible, and allows for direct two-way communication with a microcontroller for programming and output interface. The output can be either a pulse train or a square wave (50% duty cycle) with frequency directly proportional to light intensity. It has programmable sensitivity and full-scale output frequency. The device sensitivity is selectable between Power Down, 1x, 10x and 100x. The full-scale output frequency can be scaled by one of four preset values: 1, 2, 10 and 100. The device sensitivity and frequency scaling can be determined by the microcontroller, or selected using available SMD jumpers. It is designed to operate on 3.3V by default, however, the user can select 5V power supply through a voltage-selection SMD jumper.
Connect a development system to LIN (Local Interconnect Network) using the LIN Board. The board has a MCP201 LIN transceiver with voltage regulator that supports baud rates up to 20 Kbaud. The transceiver facilitates a physical interface between an MCU and a LIN half-duplex bus. The board receives data from the development system via UART communication and converts it so that it can be sent further through the LIN network. The board also provides a half-duplex, bi-directional communication interface between a microcontroller and a serial network bus. It is used to convert CMOS/TTL logic levels to LIN logic level, and vice versa. It is designed to operate a 5V power supply only. This voltage can be used to power a device through another screw terminal. Using a third screw terminal, it connects to the LIN. The LIN features one master and up to 16 slave devices. It has jumpers, which are used to set master/slave mode and normal/alternate slope mode.
The LIN Board is an ideal choice for use in automotive and industrial applications.
Lin Hall Click Board
Introduce a linear Hall sensor to your design with the LIN HALL click board. The board includes a Melexis MLX90242 linear Hall sensor IC along with an MCP3201 12-bit ADC. LIN HALL click outputs a signal that is linearly proportional to the flux density of a magnetic field it is exposed to. A north pole magnet field will increase the output, while a south pole field decreases it. Using the mikroBUS SPI lines (CS,
SCK, MISO), LIN HALL click communicates with the target board microcontroller. It uses either a 3.3V or 5V power supply (default is 3.3V).
The linear Hall sensors are used to infer the linear or rotary position of a target object, provided there is a magnet attached, or something to disturb an existing magnetic field. It is an ideal choice to measure strength of different magnets or measure distance of a magnet from the sensor.
LoRa RF Click Board
Introduce a low-power, high-network capacity solution for long range wireless connectivity to the design using the LoRa RF click. Compliant with LoRaWAN Class A protocol specifications, the board features Microchip
LPG Click Board
LPG click is a highly sensitive liquefied petroleum gas leakage sensing device. Users can easily add this accessory board to their design of LPG leakage equipment. LPG click features a powerful MQ-5 sensor for detecting LPG. It has also got two jumpers, a power indicator LED, a mikroBUS host socket and a calibration potentiometer. LPG click can precisely detect the LPG levels in the range of 200 to 10000ppm of concentrations.
The MQ-5 sensor features a gas sensing layer constructed of tin dioxide (SnO2) which is an inorganic compound. Since tin dioxide has lower conductivity in clean air, as the percentage of LPG increases in the environment the conductivity rises too. The potentiometer enables the user to adjust the load resistance of the sensor circuit so that LPG click may be calibrated for the targeted surroundings.
LPG click is great for use as a LPG checker for detecting LPG concentration in the air. It can be used in the devices like domestic gas leakage detectors, industrial combustible gas detectors and portable gas detectors.
Magneto Click Board
The Magneto click is an accessory board that comes equipped with a contactless magnetic 360?? angle position sensor chip termed as AS5048A. The operations of the sensing circuitry of this board are based upon the Hall Effect. Magneto can easily detect the presence of a nearby magnetic field in a 360?? two-dimensional plane adjacent to the surface of the AS5048A chip. The angle measurements provided by the Magneto click can be precisely down to 0.05?? in 14-bit resolution, if an external MCU does the linearization and averaging tasks. The board
