Camera click Released

Camera click carries OV7670-VL2A, a low voltage CMOS image sensor, connected to an onboard FT900 MCU through a parallel camera interface. The FT900 in turn outputs the camera image to the target board microcontroller through the mikroBUS SPI interface (CS, SCK, MISO, MOSI). An additional RDY pin (INT) signals the camera’s status. Camera click combined with a 32-bit target board MCU will enable you to stream QCIF resolution video (176 x 144 px). Increased processing power and storage capabilities will get you better results (the maximum resolution of the OVO7670 sensor aboard camera click is VGA, 640x480). With 8-bit MCUs, camera click is best used for rendering static images, or for specific applications where a few frames per second are enough.

Expand2 click Released

EXPAND 2 click is an accessory board in mikroBUS form factor. It includes the MCP23017 16-bit I/O expander which features an I2C interface and clock speeds up to 1.7 MHz. Three HARDWARE ADDRESS SEL jumpers allow you to configure the board address and connect up to eight devices on the bus. The controller also supports an interrupt-on-change feature, and has optional weak pull-ups on each input. Expand2 click is set to use a 3.3V power supply by default but you can solder PWR SEL SMD jumper to the 5V position if used with 5V systems.

RTC3 click Released

RTC3 click carries BQ32000, a real time clock with an integrated trickle charge circuit for automatic switchover to a backup power supply (the circuit maintains the backup charge with an onboard super capacitor). The clock frequency is derived from an onboard 32.768KHz oscillator. RTC3 click communicates with the target board microcontroller through mikroBUS I2C lines: SCL, SDA. In addition, the INT pin serves as a configurable interrupt output. The board is designed to use a 3.3V power supply only.

Thermo2 click Released

Thermo 2 click carries DS1825, a programmable resolution digital thermometer IC. It measures temperature within a range from - 10°C to 85°C with +/-0.5°C accuracy. You can specify the resolution of the measurements, from 9 to 12-bit, depending on the application. The board communicates with the target microcontroller through a 1-wire interface. Using the onboard jumper, you can choose between two mikroBUS pins for setting the output. Thermo 2 click also features four Address Select jumpers for setting a unique ID for the sensor (allowing for up to 16 sensors to operate on a single 1-Wire bus).

Tilt click Released

Tilt click carries a RPI-1035, 4-directional optical tilt sensor. This type of sensor provides positional feedback for left, right, backward or forward movement (tilt). Compared to mechanical solutions, optical direction detectors are less prone to noise caused by vibrations. Compared to magnetic-based direction detectors, they are not influenced by magnetic disturbances. Tilt click communicates with the target board microcontroller through mikroBUS PWM and INT lines, used here for vout1 and vout2 outputs from the sensor. In addition, two onboard LEDs provide visual feedback from the sensor. The board is designed to use either a 3.3V or 5V power supply.

Flame click Released

Flame click is a fire detection solution. It carries a PT334-6B silicon phototransistor that's covered in black epoxy and therefore sensitive only to infrared light. To use it as a fire alarm, set up the exact detection threshold through the onboard potentiometer (once reached, the click will send an interrupt to the target board MCU through the mikroBUS INT pin). Othewise the sensor can also output a continuous analog signal through the mikroBUS AN pin. Flame click can use both a 3.3V or a 5V power supply.
2015/03/24



Rotary click (Encoder) Released

Rotary click carries a 15-pulse incremental rotary encoder with detents, surrounded by a ring of 16 green LEDs. It's a perfect solution for adding a precision input knob to your design. The encoder outputs A and B signals (out of phase to each other) on mikroBus PWM and AN lines; the knob also acts as a push-button which sends an interrupt to the target board MCU via the mikroBus INT line. The LED ring is controlled through SPI lines (CS, SCK, MISO, MOSI and RST). Rotary click can be used with either a 3.3V or 5V power supply.

clicker 2 for FT90X Released

clicker 2 is a battery-powered click board with two mikroBUS sockets on board allowing you to take advantage of the huge potential of click boards. This clicker 2 is powered by FT900, a 32-bit FT32 core MCU that operates at 100MHz, has 256kB of flash, 64kB on-chip data memory, and 256kB shadow program memory. The shadow program memory is where the code is executed from, enabling the MCU to work with zero wait states at 100MHz — making it faster than many MCUs with higher clock rates. The onboard LTC 3586-1 IC will provide 3.3V or 5V to the clicks. It turns the USB port into a battery charger. For convenience, clicker 2 for FT900 features a reset button and an ON/OFF switch (you can also connect an external ON/OFF switch). clicker 2 has the same pocket-size form factor and the same pair of 1x26 connection pads as mikromedia boards. This makes it compatible with mikromedia shields letting you expand your device any way you want.
