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

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

UV 3 click – UVA light sensor
Posted by Lana Vulic on 10 August 2017 10:42 AM

It’s August, which means it’s time for a new UV click board™ – the third one to be precise. Maybe you don’t know this, but we’ve been releasing ultraviolet light sensor click boards™ during the month of August in the past three years. UV 3 click in no exception.

You can get the most use out of it during these hot days. The air is heavy with the smell of sunscreen, and everyone is worried if their skin is safe from the sun’s radiation. It’s so hot you could fry an egg on the sidewalk.

Well, our new click is there to tell you everything you want to know about the level of UV radiation.

UV 3 click

UV 3 click is an advanced ultraviolet (UV) light sensor with I2C protocol interface. The click carries VEML6070 UVA light sensor designed by the CMOS process. UV 3 click runs on either 3.3V or 5V power supply.

VEML6070 incorporates a photodiode, amplifiers, and analog/digital circuits into a single chip. VEML6070’s adoption of Filtron™ UV technology provides the best spectral sensitivity to cover UV spectrum sensing.

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

clicker 2 for PIC18FK tutorial and review
Posted by Lana Vulic on 09 August 2017 12:36 PM

Electronza.com is always a great source of information. Teodor, who runs the blog, keeps posting tutorials that are easy to follow and useful. Today we wanted to share one with you.

A couple of days ago he posted a new one, on how to program the clicker 2 for PIC18KF in Microchip’s MPLAB Xpress IDE. Since the PIC18F67K40 onboard this clicker 2 development board is supported in the MPLAB Code Configurator, Teodor has decided to try to put these two to work together.

You may remember the MPLAB Code Configurator from the 50 clicks in 50 days campaign we had with Microchip this spring when they started adding click boards™ to their quick-start software libraries.

Read the whole tutorial and find out what are the proper settings, what code you need for simple LED blinking and why Teodor really likes the clicker 2 for PIC18FK.

PIC18FK vs. PIC18FJ

By the end of the post, you can see a comparison of clicker 2 for PIC18FK and its predecessor clicker 2 for PIC18FJ.

A major difference is the presence of the USB-UART chip on the Clicker 2 for PIC18FK. In my opinion, this makes for a simpler way to communicate with the PC, using only a simple terminal program.

Read on and find out what Teodor thinks about our shields and the Buggy.

For more information about the clicker 2 for PIC18FK visit the product page.
