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.

- Push-button enabled knob
- 30 indents dividing the rotation into discrete increments
- Output signal: Two phase A and B
- SPI communication interface
- 3.3V or 5V power supply
- Easy integration
- Compact design
- RoHS Compliant
- Supported by all MikroElektronika compilers
IC/module: 15-Pulse Incremental Rotary Encoder
Rotary G click features a rotary encoder that can be spun round continuously to make a rotation into 15 discrete incremental steps. Featuring 30 detents, this incremental rotary encoder outputs A and B signals that are out of phase to each other. .
Ring of 16 Green LEDs
The rotary encoder is encircled by a ring featuring 16 LEDs in eye-catchy green colour. The LED ring provides visual feedback to the user and controlled through SPI lines. .
Communication to MCU through SPI Interface
Rotary G click communicates with the target board microcontroller via mikroBUS SPI lines (CS, SCK, MISO, MOSI), and three additional lines to deliver the Encoder info: ENCB OUT, ENCA OUT and SW (instead of the typical AN, RST and INT pins, respectively). .
Additional LED Colours Available
With the green LED version, Rotary G click, MikroElektronika has launched another click board in the colour LED click board range. The other available click boards include two colours: red (Rotary R) and blue (Rotary B). .
