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.
RFid Click Board
The RFid Click Board from mikroE offers an easy and compact solution to introduce RFid functionality to the design. This add-on board includes CR95HF, an integrated transceiver IC for contactless applications, as well as a PCB trace antenna. The CR95HF 13.56 MHz contactless transceiver can operate in reader/writer modes. It contains a dedicated internal frame controller and analog front end (AFE) for RF communications. RFid click communicates with the target board MCU through the mikroBUS UART (TX, RX), SPI (MISO, MOSI, SCK, CS) INT, RST, PWM and AN lines. The board supports a 3.3V power supply only. The power supply status is indicated by a green LED.
RFid click supports ISO/IEC 14443 type A and B, ISO/IEC 15693 (single or double subcarrier) and ISO/IEC 18092 communication protocols. It also supports the detection, reading and writing of NFC Forum Type 1, 2, 3 and 4 tags. RFid click board can be used with 13.56 MHz RFid tags or identification cards. It is a perfect option for tracking and security systems that need RFID support.
RFid Reader Board
The RFid Reader Board is meant for reading identification cards (RFid Cards) using radio waves. This accessory board comes equipped with a 125 KHz RF transmitter and receiver, and an EM4095 controller chip. While the included receiver/transmitter module with antenna and a 2x5 male connector allow the reader board to get connected with a microcontroller on the development system, EM409S is used for AM modulation/demodulation or as a driver for the antenna.
The RFid Reader Board works on the basis of amplitude modulation of radio waves and electromagnetic induction. Its primary functions are energizing, demodulation, and decoding. The board can be connected to microcontrollers or PC for encoding the data read from RFid tags. This signal is coded using standard Manchester coding. The additional board makes use of the provided antenna to receive data stored on the identification card (RFid Card). The reader is powered via a development system it is connected to. It comes fitted with a power supply LED indicator.

Rotary B Click Board
Rotary B click is introduced as a new addition to the MikroElektronika
Rotary G Click Board
The Rotary G Click Board from mikroE features a 15-pulse incremental rotary encoder with detents, which is surrounded by a ring of 16 green LEDs. If the user wants to implement a precision input knob into the design, such a rotary click will be a perfect solution. Every single rotation is divided into 15 discrete steps. The encoder output has A and B signals (out of phase to each other). The knob also works as a push-button to send an interrupt to the target board MCU. The 16 LED ring is controlled via SPI communication interface.
Rotary G click can be used with either a 3.3V or 5V power supply. Such a click board would be useful in controlling audio/video equipment and other similar electrical devices.
Rotary R Click Board
MikroElektronika has come up with another flashy click board after the launch of its green (Rotary G) and blue (Rotary B) LED versions
Rotary Y Click Board
Rotary Y click is introduced as the fourth addition to the MikroElektronika
RS232 Click Board
Introduce RS232 connectivity to any device with the RS232 click. RS232 is a serial communications standard, which is mostly used for industrial machines, networking equipment and scientific instruments, as well as a standard port for modems, handheld computer cradles, and many other PC peripheral devices.
RS232 click carries a standard RS232 DB9 port and a ST3232 (MAX3232) IC. The board also incorporates a mikroBUS host socket, SMD jumpers, and a power indicator LED. It uses the mikroBUS RX (RXD), TX (TXD), CS (RTS), and INT (CTS) lines to communicate with the target board. RS232 click supports the use of either a 3.3V or 5V power supply. It has two jumper positions to connect RTS (J2) and CTS (J3) lines to the target board.
