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.
MMC Ready Board
Create MMC/SD based mass storage devices based on PIC device with ease using the MMC Ready Board. Designed to be compatible with MultiMedia (MMC) and Secure Digital (SD) memory cards, this full-featured development tool features an on-board 28-pin microcontroller PIC18F252. This highly efficient device is a great choice for managing various arduous embedded mass-storage applications. Using a 2x5 (IDC10) connector, the microcontroller is programmed to enable connection with the PICFlash external programmer. The MMC Ready Board includes a voltage regulator, which ensures no need to connect additional power supply circuits. It can also be connected to external electronic or other devices through 13-pin 2.54 mm pin header pads. It is designed to operate using a 5V DC power supply voltage.
With these features, MMC Ready Board is an ideal choice for fast data acquisition device. It has on-board microcontroller that enable use as an independent device.
The MMC/SD Board is a great option to add data storage functionality to your device. The add-on storage board comes with an MMC/SD card slot for MMC or SD cards. The MMC (MultiMedia Card) cards are superseded by SD (Secure Digital) cards, but are still widely used in a wide range of portable devices that support SD cards. The MMC/SD Board supports both types of cards, which are most commonly used as memory data storage in devices like cameras, digital audio players, cellular phones, etc. The user can also use the device carrying this MMC/SD board with all modern computers as they come with an MMC/SD slot. This storage board provides data read/write between a microcontroller and MMC/SD card. It uses a standard Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) for fast data transfer. It can also be used for fast data acquisition or storing other data files, including images, music, text, videos, etc. where fast mass storage is required. The MMC/SD Board is designed to support use of 3.3V and 5V power supply.
The DIP switches on the board enable user to set which pins on the 2?
MOTION Click Board
Give your design the infrared motion detector functionality with the MOTION click. 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.
Motion Sensor Board
Create interesting and compact devices to use in work and home using the Motion Sensor Board. This add-on board includes a passive infrared type movement sensor AMN11112, which detects changes in infrared spectrum when a person or object moves. This motion sensor features quad-type pyroelectric element, which makes it an ideal choice for small-movement detection applications. The sensor is protected with a plastic cap, which includes miniature lenses in order to boost sensor precision. In case some changes are detected in the infrared rays, the microcontroller
