LoRa 2 click released
Posted by on 27 July 2016 04:28 PM
  LoRa is a low-power wide area network technology that can cover entire cities. Using a spread spectrum modulation of the Sub-GHz band, it can support a range of more than 15km (in suburban or rural areas) or more than 5 km in urban areas. After we launched our first LoRa click, which works on European frequency bands, we got some great feedback on the library that came with it. A customer in Budapest created a public bike tracking system. LoRa 2 click is essentially the same solution — a Microchip LoRa modem — just made to operate on frequency bands legal in the new world (915 MHz). The board works with the same Libstock library as the first LoRa. The schematic is different because this one needs only one antenna. Other specifications are mostly the same. The learn article goes into more detail. Yours sincerely,MikroElektronika

  HWTrek is an online platform that connects hardware enthusiasts, professionals and those that strive to become pro. It joins creators with industry experts who can offer help. In this case, NXP is in the role of the industry expert, offering Hexiwear as a design solution. The Hexiwear program on HWTrek gives you a chance to pitch a project, and get free Hexiwear samples in return. But not just that. You will get help in promoting your upcoming project, and you will be connected to a network of experts you can consult with. If your project is accepted for the program, NXP officials will contact you to schedule a 1-hour meeting for further discussions. This is a good opportunity for developers who want to use Hexiwear as a starting point for products intended to reach the market. Yours sincerely,MikroElektronika

AudioAmp click released
Posted by on 25 July 2016 01:10 PM
  AudioAmp click is powered by a Texas Instruments LM48100Q-Q1 Boomer™ Mono, 1.3W Audio Power Amplifier chip. It takes a stereo signal from a 3.5mm stereo jack – you can try it with the line out from your PC. The dual inputs are mixed/multiplexed into a mono output that you can connect to a passive speaker with wires through the onboard screw terminals. The LM48100Q communicates with your target MCU through the mikroBUS™ I2C interface, giving you 32-step volume control over both input channels. So you can even mix a little bit. As an extra feature, the chip also has fault protection (protecting the hardware against short circuits). More details on the product page. The Libstock example is also ready and the schematic is on our Docs page. Yours sincerely,MikroElektronika

Thumbwheel click released
Posted by on 22 July 2016 11:11 AM
  Thumbwheel click is a simple input device you can use to enter numerical combinations. It’s also great for learning how to prototype with 1-Wire communications. For ease of use, our designer put a small notch on top of the PCB to mark the starting position of the switch. The wheel itself is enumerated 1-10 to mark all the available positions. The crown on top has small incisions for better finger traction. According to the data sheet, the thumbwheel is good to go for 25,000 steps minimum. The simplicity of the board means that we don’t have a library for this one – a simple code example is sufficient for you to get an understanding of how this works. The product page has all the relevant info. For other 1-Wire click boards, see RTC4 click and Unique ID click, Thermo 2 click, and Expand 3 click . Yours sincerely,MikroElektronika

Writing Your First Program with Hexiwear
Posted by on 21 July 2016 03:04 PM
The final Hexiwear webinar is the most technical yet. Mohit Kedia, NXP Technical Marketing Engineer is showing how to build and debug a Hexiwear project. After this hour long presentation, you will get familiar with the structure of the Hexiwear firmware. You will know how to do some basic edits, like changing the duration of the vibration of Hexiwear's haptic motor. Or to change the default color of the LED light. This is the meaty stuff Hexiwear owners have been waiting for. After this one you will be able to start hacking with confidence. You will be able to better appreciate this webinar recording if you took the time to watch the previous instalments. All webinars are available on the hackster.io Hexiwear contest webpage. The whole webinar series is intended for participants of the Hackster.io Hexiwear design contest. Have you joined? The project submission deadline is in 40 days. Yours sincerely,MikroElektronika
