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

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.

mikroBUS™ socket on all the Microchip Curiosity boards
Posted by Lana Vulic on 04 August 2017 12:36 PM

According to psychologists around the world, red is the color that motivates you to take action the most. Looking at the eight Curiosity Development Boards from Microchip and their bright red PCB, no one could resist starting an ambitious project right away. Each one has either one or two mikroBUS™ sockets.

Curious about the Curiosity boards?

These boards are 8-bit,16-bit and 32-bit PIC® MCU centered development platforms which you can expand with more than 300 of our click boards™.

Just think, Microchip made click board™ libraries for the MPLAB® Code Configurator. They began adding click libraries in March this year, during their 50 clicks in 50 days campaign. Every week was dedicated to a different click category, from sensors to motor control.

So, you can jump right in and start a project with your favorite click boards and one of the Curiosity boards.

Our click board™ range is growing every day. Any functionality that might cross your mind is in our shop. A click board that detects thunder, another one that measures the level of CO2 in the air, or a click that regulates LED blinking and more.

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

Yours sincerely,
MikroElektronika
