Summer internship at MikroElektronika
Posted by Lana Vulic on 27 June 2017 03:00 PM

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to have a summer internship at MikroElektronika? How many interns we have? What sort of projects are they working on?

We thought that since our intern lab is full, it was a good chance to give you a nice overview on how they are spending their time.

The industrial design duo from Belgrade is sitting at the round table, like the knights of Camelot. Except they don’t have any armor or swords (as far as we know).

Today they were learning how to make product images for the website. Some of our click boards™ to be precise. The whole process, from getting the click board out of the box, to photographing it and making it the right size as all the others in the range.

But first, we had a chat about what click boards™ are, what they can be used for and what the ones they are photographing do.

Our internship programs last from two weeks, to three months, depending on the requirements of the university and college the people are attending, or the time a person decides to commit to a project.

And on the other side of the office, below the colorful world map, we have six-member team of future engineers from France. They are as charming as the stereotype claims.

They all come from the ISEN University in Toulon, on the Mediterranean coast, and they are staying with us for two months. So, enough time to make some good friendships.

We asked Adrien, you see in the image above, what he thinks about his time here. As an answer, we got a rather shy smile and these words: “it is amazing here.”

He is setting up the SpeakUp click on one of our development boards, to make the light bulb change colors to his voice commands. It was a fun side project to help the design team with the product images.

But it’s not all work and no play. Everyone likes to relax after work, and the interns are no exception.

Yours sincerely,
MikroElektronika

Weather station idea you need to see
Posted by Lana Vulic on 26 June 2017 03:21 PM

Teodor from electronza.com has prepared another interesting tutorial. We’re glad to see that our click boards™ are a source of inspiration in his projects. This time Weather click takes the stage.

Take a look how you can make a weather station at home, with the help of Weather click and SparkFun’s ESP8266 Thing.

Keep track of the changing degrees and get precise info, instead of waiting for the weather channel to tell you.

Weather click

Weather click carries BME280 integrated environmental unit from Bosch. It’s a sensor that detects humidity, pressure, and temperature, specifically designed for low current consumption and long-term stability. Those features make it ideal for applications like home automation control, personalized weather stations, sport and fitness tools and so on.

The sensor has three operating modes: sleep, forced, and normal. Also, the humidity and pressure sensors can operate independently.

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

Yours sincerely,
MikroElektronika

RS485 2 click – an RS485 half duplex transceiver
Posted by Lana Vulic on 23 June 2017 01:53 PM

Don’t let the twisted design of the click board™ twist your perception, RS485 2 click is intended for high-speed bidirectional data communication on multipoint bus transmission lines.

RS485 2 click

RS485 2 click carries the MAX3471 half-duplex transceiver intended for lithium battery-powered RS-485/RS-422 applications. The click is designed to run on either 3.3V or 5V power supply. It communicates with the target microcontroller over UART interface with additional functionality provided by the following pins on the mikroBUS™ line: PWN, CS.

The MAX3471 draws only 1.6µA (typical) supply current from a 3.6V supply with the receiver enabled and the driver disabled.

RS485 click boards™ in the shop

You can go ahead and check out the other RS485 click boards™ we have:

RS485 click 5V – carries the ADM485 differential line transceiver from Analog Devices. It is designed for balanced data transmission and complies with EIA standards RS-485 and RS-422. The click is designed to run on a 5V power supply.

RS485 click 3.3V – carries the SN65HVD12 half-duplex, RS-485 transceiver from Texas Instruments.

RS485 Isolator click – an RS485 communication isolator, and carries the ADM2682EBRIZ, a 5 kV rms signal and power isolated RS-485 transceiver.

RS485 communication

RS485 communication has really good network topology. Which is probably the reason why it is a favorite amongst developers when they are working on data acquisition and control apps. RS485 has the ability to work with multiple transmitters and receivers in one network.

For more information about the RS485 2 click, see the product page.

Box of wonders – start designing user interfaces right away
Posted by Lana Vulic on 22 June 2017 03:07 PM

You are sitting home, wondering what you need to buy to start making your own user interfaces. You compile one list. An hour later you realize that you forgot to add something. So, you go back, make a new list, but then you’re not sure if all the tools are compatible with each other. Slowly you’re losing the will to even draw a sketch on a piece of paper.

Well, you’ll never have a problem like that again, because we are introducing a new line of development kits intended for designing amazing user interfaces – mikroLAB for mikromedia line.

It’s the perfect toolbox: mikromedia workStation v7 is the best development environment for mikromedia boards –  your stepping stone. The Visual TFT software and compiler license will launch you into full creativity mode; you don’t need to worry about the code, the Visual TFT will generate it automatically in the background, you just concentrate on the design.

Choose the mikromedia you want (out of the seven we are offering for now), and start making truly amazing interfaces. Test them out immediately. Work and play at the same time.

Open the box

Open the box and you’ll find everything you could possibly need to start designing graphic interfaces. From a workstation to wire jumpers. We got you covered.

As you can see, a lot of time and thought has been invested in the packaging. Our graphic designer Danijela made sure that every single box inside the kit forms one piece of a puzzle. Opening the package is going to be like Christmas morning.

You’ll find mikroBUS™ connectors on both the mikroBUS shield for mikromedia and the workStation v7. As you already know we have more than 300 click boards™ in the shop. That means that you can add all those functionalities to your project. From wireless connectivity and sensors to motor control click boards and audio and voice ones.

And if you need to save any pictures and other media, the microSD card is in the package as well. You can say that we thought of everything.

For more information about the mikroLAB for mikromedia kits, visit the product pages for each one.

Yours sincerely,
MikroElektronika

DC MOTOR 5 click – brushed DC motor driver
Posted by Lana Vulic on 21 June 2017 10:25 AM

Small DC motors are used everywhere around you – in fans, toy cars, vending machines, power tools, electric toothbrushes, and more. If you are planning a project similar to some of these devices, you need a DC motor driver. Good thing that DC MOTOR 5 click is available in the shop.

DC MOTOR 5 click

DC MOTOR 5 click carries the DRV8701 brushed DC motor gate driver from Texas Instruments. The click is designed to run on an external power supply. It communicates with the target MCU over the following pins on the mikroBUS™ line: AN, RST, CS, PWM, and INT.

The click is capable of driving motors from 5.9V to 45V.

World’s first electric motor

1828 was the year the world saw the first practical electric motor. Hungarian inventor Ányos István Jedlík called it an “electromagnetic self-rotor“. It was the first continuously rotating electric motor, and it had all the components of a DC motor (a stator, rotor, and commutator).

His invention remained hidden from the rest of the world for more than 15 years, so it had no real influence on the development of motors of today. The rotating electric motor of Moritz Jacobi in 1834 was the real start.

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