MikroE team at Microchip’s MASTERs 2017 – part 1
Posted by Lana Vulic on 18 August 2017 09:50 AM

Way back in 2011 the MikroElektronika team went to their first MASTERs conference in Phoenix, Arizona. At that time we had only one click board in our range. Travel to the present and more than 300 click boards™ are in the shop.

This year’s Microchip MASTERs conference started on August 16. It’s the 21st year that this conference is taking place, and we are happy to say each new trip brings us invaluable knowledge, contacts, and ideas.

The participants of the conference can choose from over 110 lectures and classes. Or visit exhibitor booths and learn more about different products and services.

What’s the Mikroe team up to?

So what is our wonderful team up to in sunny Phoenix? Well, they are trying to balance out meetings with sightseeing.

In the right image below you can see DJ, our CBDO, taking the time to make some photographs, which we will post in the second part of this blog post. So, stay tuned for some amazing images.

mikroBUS™ and bright red PCB

In 2011 we had a booth at the conference where we presented our products. With one click board and the idea of the range in its infancy, we were happy to show people our vision. Six years and 300 click boards later there is a whole range of Microchip development boards that support our mikroBUS™ socket.

The Curiosity Development Boards are the perfect platform for 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit PIC MCUs. Each one has either one or two mikroBUS™ sockets so that you can add different functionalities.

For more information about the MASTERs conference, see the official page.

Yours sincerely,
MikroElektronika

UT-L 7-SEG R click – dual seven segment display
Posted by Lana Vulic on 17 August 2017 11:02 AM

Today we have a new click board™ with a dual seven segment display, in bright red – UT-L 7-SEG R click.

UT-L 7-SEG R click

UT-L 7-SEG R click carries two SMD ultra thin (3.1mm) LED 7-SEG displays and the MAX6969 constant-current LED driver from Maxim Integrated. The click is designed to run on either 3.3V or 5V power supply. It communicates with the target microcontroller over SPI interface.

The MAX6969 allows you to connect multiple click boards™ in case your project needs more than two seven segment displays.

All the displays

Perhaps you need a different display. Don’t worry, we have everything.

7-SEG RGB click carries a full color single 7 segment digit display. BIG 7-SEG R click offers a large display in red. OLED C click lets you add a small but bright and crisp color OLED display to your design. AlphaNum click is a simple solution for adding 14-segment alphanumeric display.

Visit our shop, and see the whole range of display click boards.

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

Yours sincerely,
MikroElektronika

It’s cool to be a geek – discovering click boards™
Posted by Lana Vulic on 16 August 2017 02:36 PM

The popularity of the mikroBUS™ standard is growing like one of those huge tidal waves when they are gaining momentum. Right now we are keeping track of the people and places it reaches, but pretty soon it’s going to be everywhere.

Digi-Key Electronics has a series called “Another Geek Moment” and one of their latest videos is dedicated to our click boards™.

It’s great to see how more and more people are discovering the advantages of the standard.

Like Joey, from Digi-Key Electronics said: “The nice thing about these boards is that absolutely everything is standardized – the shape, the size, down to the pinout, and the different communication protocols that they use.

You can check out the video for yourself:

Add the mikroBUS™ socket to your design

Don’t forget that you can add the mikroBUS™ socket to your PCB design. Just make sure you clearly mark it on the silkscreen with our logo.

To see all the third party boards that support the mikroBUS™ socket, see our Learn article.

For more information about the mikroBUS™ standard, see the official page.

Yours sincerely,
MikroElektronika

USB Wizard – USB hub with a mikroBUS™ socket
Posted by Lana Vulic on 15 August 2017 10:27 AM

Communicate with up to four USB devices with the USB Wizard. Our newest development board also offers a mikroBUS™ socket.

USB Wizard

USB Wizard is an evaluation and demonstration platform featuring the USB4604 USB 2.0 4-Port hub controller. The board has four USB 2.0 downstream ports with individual port power control and overcurrent sense (OCS).

We have more than 300 click boards™ in our shop, so browse through the range and find the ones that suit your project the most.

Perhaps the white wizard, holding the USB trident will inspire you to start an adventure with our newest board.

What’s in the package

Open up our damage resistant protective box, and you’ll find the USB Wizard, a USB cable, and wall power supply with the appropriate AC plug.

For more information about the USB Wizard, see the product page.

Yours sincerely,
MikroElektronika

BUCK click – input voltage range up to 40V
Posted by Lana Vulic on 14 August 2017 10:59 AM

Buck regulators, or step-down switching regulators, or DC-to-DC power regulators are what brings the voltage down to a level you need. Our new product, BUCK click, does exactly that.

BUCK click

BUCK click is a buck switching regulator that accepts a wide input voltage range (up to 40V) and steps it down to 3.3V or 5V. The click carries the LT3976 40V, 5A, 2MHz step-down switching regulator with 3.3µA quiescent current. BUCK click communicates with the target microcontroller over the following pins on the mikroBUS™ line: PWM, INT, RS, CS.

When all the usual conditions and proper cooling are met BUCK click can supply up to 5A of load current.

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

NXP boards that support mikroBUS™
Posted by Lana Vulic on 11 August 2017 12:41 PM

As the mikroBUS™ socket gets more popular, so does the number of development boards that support it. This Friday we decided to focus on the ones by NXP.

We already collaborated with NXP on Hexiwear, and future collaboration always seemed like a natural next step.

Right now there are over 30 third party development boards that support our mikroBUS™ socket. To no one’s surprise, the list grows every day. The convenience and practicality of this standard are obvious to anyone that encounters it.

NXP i.Mx7 Dual SABRE board

The i.Mx7 Dual SABRE board is based on i.MX7Dual applications processor, utilizing both the ARM® Cortex®-A7 and Cortex®-M4 cores with enhanced security and power optimization.

WaRP7 board

The WaRP7 has one mikroBUS™ socket on the back. It’s small and sleek, and it consists of the main board and a daughter card. The main board is based on the NXP® i.MX 7Solo applications processor.

Modular Edge Platform

The Modular Edge Platform is a Volansys multi-module compatible end node, that NXP uses in its Modular IoT Gateway kit. This compatible board has two mikroBUS™ sockets.

This board is targeted for multiple use cases in various segments of IoT such as Smart Home, Buildings, and Industries by connecting and communicating.

More than 300 click boards™

As you already know, our click board™ range is constantly expanding. We have a click board™ for any functionality that might come to mind. For example, take the sensor click range – we have everything from temperature and humidity sensors, to gyroscopes, light detectors, proximity sensors, altitude, alcohol, and heart rate sensors.

For more information about these NXP boards, and all the other development boards that support the mikroBUS™ socket, see our Learn article.

Add mikroBUS™ to your board

Of course, you can add the mikroBUS™ socket to your design. As long as you adhere to the standard specifications. So make sure you mark the silkscreen with the mikroBUS™ logo.

Let us know if you make something, send an email to office@mikroe.com.

Yours sincerely,
MikroElektronika
