Thunder Click Board
Add a lightning sensor to the design with the Thunder click. This add-on measurement board incorporates AS3935 Franklin lightning detector IC and MA5532 coil antenna.
For communication with the target board microcontroller, Thunder click uses the mikroBUS SPI (MOSI, MISO, SCK, CS) and INT lines. The board is designed to use 3.3V or 5V power supply, selectable via SMD jumper.
Thunder click is designed to detect the existence and proximity of potentially hazardous lightning activity within a 40km radius. Thunder click is also capable of providing an estimation of the distance to the head of the storm from 40km away down to 1km in 14 steps, while rejecting disturbances from man-made signals, such as motors and microwave ovens. It can also provide information on the noise level, which makes it an ideal choice for weather stations, sports equipment, UPS, power line conditioners, smart grid systems, environmental monitoring systems, portable GPS, bike computers, etc.Thunder click provides detection of both cloud-to-ground and cloud-to-cloud lightning activity within a 40km range.
Tilt Click Board
The Tilt Click Board from mikroE is a measurement click board that includes RPI-1035, a four-directional optical tilt sensor. This surface mount type optical sensor provides positional feedback by telling if the device is leaning left, right, forward or backward at a given moment. It also offers substantial benefits over mechanical or magnetic-based direction detector solutions, which also makes it an ideal solution for situations where the user only require direction detection, and not the highly precise positional measurements. Tilt click communicates with the target board MCU through mikroBUS PWM and INT lines to get Vout1 and Vout2 outputs from the sensor. It also has two onboard LED signals that are responsible for visual feedback from the sensor. The click board uses either a 3.3V or 5V power supply.
It is ideal for remote controls or game controllers, as well as applications related to robotics, or rotating displays.
TILT n SHAKE Click Board
The mikroE TILT-n-SHAKE click is a multifunctional add-on board that is designed to keep away people from tampering with your design. Featuring a combination of tilt AND shake functionalities, the TILT-n-SHAKE click includes a MMA8491Q IC sensor that is used as a 3-axis, 45-degree tilt sensor and can also be configured as a 3-axis digital accelerometer. The user is required to keep the Enable pin (EN) pulled to logic level high to use it as an accelerometer.
Featuring a 14-bit digital output and ??8g full-scale range, this MEMS chip has a 1 mg/LSB sensitivity, and a fast response time of around 700 microseconds. TILT-n-SHAKE click communicates with the target board MCU through mikroBUS I2C interface, using SCL, SDA pins. As a tilt sensor, the MMA8491Q chip has three detection outputs, one for each axis: Xout, Yout and Zout. For specific applications you may need only one or two dimensions, not all three.
This click board is intended to use a 3.3V power supply. It is ideal for tamper detect and anti-theft detection systems.
TouchKey Click Board
The TouchKey Click features four capacitive pads powered by the TTP224 touchpad detector IC. TTP224 chip comes with multiple operating modes that allow the user to configure how the buttons will work. The capacitive pads can be toggled even when placed under a layer of glass or paper. TouchKey Click outputs four interrupt signals: OUTA, OUTB, OUTC and OUTD in place of default mikroBUS RST, AN, PWM and INT pins, respectively. It features three onboard jumpers enable the user to configure several operating modes of the TTP224 IC, including fast mode or low power mode, direct or toggle mode, enable/disable multi-key input, and so on. TouchKey Click is designed to work on either 3.3V or 5V power supply.
It works as an ideal replacement for mechanical switches and buttons, and being capacitive, it can register inputs through paper or glass.
TouchPad Click Board
Introduce an input device to the prototype using the Touchpad Click Board from mikroE. With a small form factor, this click board acts as a minimalistic capacitive touch input device powered by Microchip
TouchPanel Connector Board
The TouchPanel Connector Board is a prototyping tool that is used for connecting GLCD touch panel. The board is provided with a plastic touchscreen-cable clamp bar in order to easily secure a touchscreen ribbon cable. It provides a connector for easy interfacing to a 4-wire touchscreen flat ribbon cable for prototyping work. The touch screen ribbon cable clamp bar can be broken or damaged when removing the touch screen cable from the main board. This board also can be used as a great replacement if the touchscreen FFC clamp bar on the development system was broken or damaged.
It is designed for easy prototyping and suitable for use with solderless breadboards.
Note: The connection pads of the board are unpopulated in order to let the user decide on how to connect the board to the development system. It has male header pins for typical breadboard use.

tRF Click Board
tRF click is an RF communication board featuring the Telit LE70-868 wireless transceiver module. Along with the LE70-868 short range module, the board incorporates an SMA connector for an antenna, two radio communication LEDs, and a mikroBUS connector. Telit LE70-868 is an 868 MHz transceiver module with an embedded stack that is easy to integrate and use in point-to-point or star network topologies.
tRF click enables radio data rates from 4.8 to 57.6 kbps with maximum output power of 500mW, and features a wireless range of up to 10km in line-of-sight. However, this is the case for ideal conditions with no barriers to disrupt the signal. The user can still achieve a range of over 4km in open space under mixed conditions.
The tRF click board also includes two radio LEDS: transmit (red) and receive (yellow). It uses mikroBUS UART (Rx, Tx), AN, RST, PWM and INT lines for communication with the target board MCU. tRF click is intended to use a 3.3V power supply only.
