BarGraph Click Board
Introduce a ten-segment light bar display to user design with the BarGraph Click Board from mukroE. This compact accessory board employs a JSB-R102510Z red LED bar display as well as two 74HC595 shift registers. The 74HC595 chip incorporates an 8-bit, serial-in, parallel-out shift register that feeds an 8-bit D-type storage register with 3-state output. For communication with the target board microcontroller, BarGraph Click uses the mikroBUS SPI (MOSI, MISO, SCK, CS), RST and PWM lines. It allows data to be passed serially from a microcontroller and thus saving I/O lines. The board comes set for 3.3V operation, but can be adapted for 5V use by repositioning an SMD jumper. It has a green LED diode that indicates the presence of power supply.
BarGraph Click is an ideal option to easily build a VU metre. It allows multiple boards to be connected close together and aligned to form longer LED stripe.
Barometer Click Board
The Barometer Click Board from mikroE is a high precision measurement add-on board that features the LPS25HB IC. The LPS25HB chip is a highly sensitive piezoresistive absolute pressure sensor that is capable of detecting as little as 0.01 hPa RMS in high resolution mode. The measurement range is from 260 to 1260 hPa with a 24-bit digital output. Barometer click can use either mikroBUS SPI or I2C communication interface, which is specified by soldering onboard jumpers in appropriate position. It also has a multifunctional interrupt pin that can be configured in either of the two ways: as Data Ready or as threshold trigger. Barometer click is designed to use a 3.3V power supply only.
This board is highly suitable for adding barometer or altimeter functionality to any design, for example, altitude measurement for wearables, weather station equipment, enhancing GPS functionality, etc.
