VREG click
 
mikroBUS
VREG click VREG click is a digitally controlled DC Voltage regulator in mikroBUS™ form factor. The design is based on the well-known LM317 circuit, with the addition of a 12-bit DAC, 12-bit ADC, and an Operational Amplifier. Two pairs of screw terminals serve as inputs and outputs. The LM317 IC is a reliable regulator with typical line regulation of 0.01% and load regulation of 0.1%. It also has internal short-circuit current limiting and thermal overload protection. The circuit regulates voltage by turning all input/output difference into heat (effectively dissipating all the excess power). If it gets too hot it may damage the board or cause unexpected behaviour. Because of that, the board’s operating range is defined by two factors. 1) maximum input voltage and current (should not exceed 20V/1A); and 2) maximum wattage arising from current and I/O voltage difference (should not exceed 2W, measured as I x (Input V - Output V). The board also carries a MOSFET chip to toggle the output on and off. VREG click communicates with the target board MCU through the SPI interface (CS, SCK, MISO, MOSI). The board can use either a 3.3V or a 5V power supply. It is also possible to use the board’s power supply as the Input, by resoldering the onboard INPUT SEL jumper.

MCP16331 click
 
mikroBUS
MCP16331 click MCP16331 click functions as a non-inverting buck-boost voltage regulator, a type of switching mode power supply topology that combines the principles of the Buck converter (step-down) and the Boost converter (step-up) in a single circuit. The Buck converter produces a DC output in a range from 0V to just less than the input voltage. The Boost converter produces an output voltage ranging from the same voltage as the input to a level much higher than the input. The MCP16331 click itself produces constant DC voltage on the output rails, which can be set in the code.

MCP16331 INV click
 
mikroBUS
MCP16331 INV click

MCP16331 INV click works as a buck-boost voltage regulator, a switching regulator topology that combines principles of the buck conversion (step-down) and the boost conversion (step-up). A buck converter outputs voltage that is smaller than the input voltage (steps down the input voltage). A boost converter outputs voltage that is greater than the input voltage (steps up the input voltage). By combining these two topologies, MCP16331 INV click is able to output a regulated DC voltage, which can be set in the code, for input voltage both greater and less than the output voltage.

A major difference between the MCP16331 INV click and another click with the same name - MCP16331 click, is that this click works in an inverting configuration, providing an output voltage which is negative in respect to the GND level. Negative voltage is often used in symmetrical power supply configurations - for powering up operational amplifiers and similar devices that require such type of power supply. This feature, as well as the excellent power switching efficiency, overtemperature protection, and a clean regulated voltage output makes this device an ideal solution for powering up any application that demands a negative voltage power supply.
