Mikromedia HMI

22 Nov , 2016  

Mikromedia HMI is the name of a product line of 18 smart displays intended to be used as OEM parts. It’s a spinoff from the original mikromedia, the feature-rich multimedia development board. Because a subset of our customers started integrating ordinary mikromedia boards into serial products, we created mikromedia HMI, a version optimized for scale […]

RN52 Media Station

10 Nov , 2016  

Bluetooth is one of the easiest and most common ways to connect your embedded project over a wireless signal. Sometimes bluetooth can be used to communicate between two modules in an IoT environment or a simple controller for an embedded hobbyist, but in the case of BT Audio click it makes implementing streaming audio over bluetooth easier […]

BLUETOOTH LOW ENERGY – PART 4: BLE 3 click

8 Nov , 2016  

Bluetooth low energy is becoming one of the most popular radio protocols for low power devices. Several sensors can all communicate to a central tablet/pc/smartphone very efficiently using BLE. This makes BLE very useful for creating a controlled environment full of embedded devices: every engineer’s dream. The first of such radio devices implemented in our click […]

What is RFID?

4 Nov , 2016  

Since 1974 the barcode has been the most widely used UPC scanner in the world. Although barcodes are great, they can only be read from a very close range, and only unique to the specific type and brand of a product. With RFID chips, each product can have a unique ID and be read without […]

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.” […]

ECG click and mikroPlot – the complete solution for human heart data analysis

21 Oct , 2016  

The world of embedded technology is getting wider and wider by the year. More and more embedded systems are becoming a part of our everyday life, making it easier for us to do all the tasks that were once deemed impossible. One of the fields in which embedded technology is very useful is medicine. A […]

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 […]

SMS Alarm

6 Oct , 2016  

If you are a beginner this is probably the best starting point for you. It is always nice and interesting to make something useful. The project works with a motion sensor which reports its’ own state through a simple GPIO pin. Then we have the Relay click board which can also be controlled with simple GPIO pins […]

UART – Serial communication

28 Sep , 2016  

Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter or UART for short represents the hardware – integrated circuit, used for the serial communication through the serial port. UART is a standalone integrated circuit (IC) but also as a part of microcontrollers. It is important to understand the difference between standalone UART modules and the UART modules integrated in MCU modules, and how MCU modules usually […]

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 […]

Microcontrollers have a Heart too

7 Sep , 2016  

Heart rate sensors are an interesting way to use IR LEDs (Infared Light-Emitting Diodes) and photo diodes to find a hearts’ pulse. Amazingly, the intensity of light received through the photo diode is actually different depending on how much blood is in your arteries. In this blog we will cover a photodiode’s basic operation, and how […]
