Enhance Hexiwear with GSM 4 click

15 Dec , 2016   Video

Hexiwear communicates over SMS

MikroElektronika already offers a wide range of click boards for GSM communication. GSM 4 click is the latest one. Like its predecessor 3G SARA, it carries a u-blox module. The difference between these two click boards is that GSM 4 supports 2.5G and 3G SARA supports 2.75G. You can get more information about GSM generations on […]

Successor Stronger Than Parent – CC3100

31 Oct , 2016  

There are always situations in real life when some old stuff — no matter what we’re talking about, whether it be sneakers or your favorite Hi-Fi amplifier — must be replaced with something newer and you think to yourself: “If I just can get the new one it will be at least as good as the old one was.” […]

Updated: 30+ click board-compatible development boards you didn’t know about

13 Oct , 2016  

It actually all started at a beach. MikroE’s founder, Neb, was in the same summer resort where the actor Mickey Rourke sometimes stayed (allegedly). After a Eureka moment, Neb sketched a mikroBUS™ pinout in sand. Like all Eureka moments, the sketch was the culmination of a long time spent wrestling with a problem. The type of problem that one thinks […]

I2C – Everything you need to know

15 Sep , 2016  

There is no need for a wordy introduction to I2C protocol. We all know it’s main parts – 2 wires, multiple slaves, sometimes multiple masters, up to 5MHz of speed. Often so have we all implemented an I2C connection. Still, every now and then, there’s that module that just won’t work. This time, we will do […]

LoRa 2 – IOT All Over The World Now

27 Jul , 2016  

Reserved frequency bands are different from region to region. For example, the first LoRa click board can not be used in the US because of their laws. That’s why we are introducing the new LoRa 2 click board. This LoRa module has the same firmware like the previous one so this will be just a short […]

Write SPI, Talk CAN, Read SPI – MCP25625

13 Jul , 2016   Video

SPI bus is a favorite amongst most developers inside the embedded world. One master, many slaves and high speed opens a wide variety of possible peripherals. Displays, sensors, and flash memories are some of the most common ones. In this case the peripheral will be MCP25625, Microchips’ controller and integrated transceiver for the CAN bus. The introduction to the CAN bus […]

Going the Distance with Fiber Optics

8 Apr , 2016  

We all love servos, we love them with breakfast, lunch and dinner. But one serious concern that arises is when we include other noisy components and interference gets in the way. This problem is compounded to extreme when you introduce distance. The further you get from the PWM source the greater the signal is degraded […]

MikroBUS Cape – Beaglebone Shield

3 Mar , 2016  

BeagleBone mikroBUS Cape for click boards

Beaglebone black is a SOC using the ARM7 architecture running the Linux OS.  The running kernel was adapted specifically for the embedded world. Interacting with click boards or other peripherals in real-time can be somewhat of a challenge. At times it can be very frustrating if this is your starting point in the embedded world. Advantages exist however, for this […]
