NFC Tag 2 click – no need for a battery
Posted by Lana Vulic on 22 February 2017 04:39 PM

Maybe you haven’t noticed, but people are using NFC in their daily life all the time. To open the front door, to open the hotel room door, to check the ticket in public transportation, to pay the bill at the grocery store, etc.

These days you even have bottle labels with integrated NFC chips, so you just scan the bottle with your phone and get information on what you are drinking.

Our new click – NFC Tag 2 click – is exactly what you need if you want to add NFC to your project, and join in on the fun and the possibilities it brings.

NFC Tag 2 click

NFC Tag 2 click carries the NT3H1101 NTAG I2C energy harvesting NFC Forum Type 2 Tag with field detection pin from NXP.

The click is designed to run on a 3.3V power supply.

Energy harvesting

The amazing thing about this click and the technology behind it is that it eliminates the need for a battery or an external power supply.

It can generate energy from an RF field or some other NFC device, like an NFC-supported mobile phone.

List of NFC-supported phones

You can check if your mobile phone is NFC-supported on this NFCWorld+ list.

For more information about the NFC Tag 2 click, see the product page.

Yours Sincerely,
MikroElektronika

mikroBUS™ sockets, click boards™ and clicker boards in an IoT Kit
Posted by Lana Vulic on 21 February 2017 01:44 PM

Put three click boards™ in a box, two clicker boards, two mikroBUS™ sockets, and a development board — sounds like a recipe for a MikroElektronika IoT party.

The Creator Ci40 Kit is intended for IoT Cloud computing kind of projects. So, without further ado, here is what the kit contains:

mikroBUS™ socket revolution

The mikroBUS™ socket is now on more than 30 development boards. Once something as practical and simple as this gains momentum there’s no stopping it.

And with the number of click boards™ increasing every day, adding new functionality to your project has never been so easy.

The Creator Ci40 board carries two mikroBUS™ sockets. Of course, since it is designed for the IoT world it has low power consumption.

click boards™ in the kit

If you use the three click boards™ in the kit, you’ll have a relay, a temperature sensor, and a motion sensor. How you combine and use them is up to you and your desires. But this doesn’t mean you can’t add other click boards™ of your choice.

BLE2 click carries an RN4020 module from Microchip and it will seamlessly add Bluetooth Low Energy to your device.

UV click will let you know if the levels of ultraviolet radiation are too high, and RTC 6 click will help you keep track of time.

Take a look at our click boards™ range in the shop, and choose something that suits you and your future project the most.

Yours Sincerely,
MikroElektronika

IoT alcohol tester project with Alcohol click
Posted by Lana Vulic on 20 February 2017 03:11 PM

Francesco from hackster.io has made an interesting project with Alcohol click – an alcohol tester that estimates the blood alcohol content from a breath sample. Isn’t that something that everyone needs at a house party?

Alcohol click measures the level of alcohol from a simple breath sample, and the Zerynth app displays the level of alcohol in a person’s blood.

Real life IoT contest

Remember when we wrote about Zerynth’s real life IoT contest, where you could win Hexiwear as a prize?

Don’t forget that we have more than 250 click boards to choose from. The contest is still going on, so if you use your imagination and make an amazing combination of click boards and write good code, Hexiwear could be yours.

Of course, Alcohol click is not our only sensor click. Ozone click carries a compact MOS sensor for ozone (O3). Methane click does as the name implies – detects the levels of methane gas in the air. We even have a click board™ that can detect the presence and proximity of lightning – Thunder click.

We haven’t even scratched the surface with the sensor click boards, let alone the wireless connectivity range, the display click boards™ or audio and voice range.

Alcohol click

Alcohol click has high sensitivity to alcohol and it can detect concentrations from 0.04 to 4mg/l. There is a small potentiometer onboard that will allow you to adjust the Load Resistance of the sensor circuit.

For more information about Alcohol click, see the product page.

Yours Sincerely,
MikroElektronika

Live update for compilers released today
Posted by Srdjan Misic on 15 February 2017 04:58 PM

A live update for mikroC, mikroBasic and mikroPascal for all architectures except 8051 (so PIC, PIC32, dsPIC/PIC24, AVR, FT90x, and ARM) has been released today.

We rolled out the update because we made minor interventions to the TFT library. It now supports the ST7789V TFT controller and includes automatic detection of whether the connected display is driven by an ILI9341 or ST7789V controller.

This update doesn’t affect our software roadmap and release dates. The changes to the TFT library also do NOT require any changes in user’s code.

The update was rolled to support both types of graphic displays that are used on mikromedia boards, to provide automatic detection of the controller.

To install the update, launch the compiler, go to Help >>> Check for Updates.

Sincerely,
MikroElektronika

EnOcean 2 click – a solution for self-powered IoT
Posted by Lana Vulic on 15 February 2017 04:08 PM

After EnOcean click, we bring you EnOcean 2 click. The main difference between the two being the operating frequency. EnOcean 2 click carries the TCM 515Z transceiver module, that works on 2.4 GHz frequency for ZigBee systems.

Self-powered IoT

EnOcean’s energy harvesting wireless modules are the perfect solution for smart homes and IoT in general. Just think about it, you could have a smart home lighting system where the switches don’t require a battery or an external power supply.

For example, EnOcean can generate electrical energy by using physical motion. A light switch can be powered by the action of someone pressing a button.

EnOcean 2 click

EnOcean 2 click carries the TCM 515Z transceiver. TCM 515Z enables the realization of line-powered actuators, controllers, and gateways communicating based on the 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.15.4 radio standard.

The module provides a transparent radio link between EnOcean 2.4 GHz devices and an external host.

For more information on EnOcean 2 click check out the product page. There is a detailed Learn article on EnOcean wireless communication that will explain everything you would ever want to know about the data rate, transmission frequency, range and more.

Yours Sincerely,
MikroElektonika
