The 3D Motion click contains the Microchip MM7150 9-axis sensor fusion motion module. It’s a completely self-contained solution comprising a 3-axis accelerometer, a gyroscope, a magnetometer, and an SSC7150 motion coprocessor. The motion coprocessor has sensor fusion alghoritms that take raw data from individual sensors and filter, compensate and combine them together. The resulting output provides reliable and accurate positioning and orientation information. The board communicates with the target MCU through the mikroBUS™ I2C interface; WAKE and RESET pins are also used (in placed of default mikroBUS™ AN and RST respectively), as well as an interrupt pin (INT).
The Mega-B Development Kit is a Bluetooth LE 4.2 prototyping kit for quickly building and testing your IoT concept. All modules are plug-n-play, allowing for flexible prototyping. The kit can be programmed through our online platform, Breadware IDE, or with the Arduino IDE. You can leverage design templates, write device firmware using our “hardware-object-oriented programming language,” build test mobile applications, configure web dashboards for the device, and utilize webhooks to stream data.

The Mega-B piggybacks on the Arduino Mega 2560, and all of the functionality and GPIOs are preserved, giving you the capability to integrate 3rd party modules, or your own designs.

Security ensured

This clicker 2 is powered by CEC1302, a 32-bit ARM®-Cortex® MCU that integrates a cryptographic engine that provides high level security features. 


The CEC1302 provides support for loading code from the private or shared SPI flash device on a VCC1 power-on. Before executing the CEC1302 code loaded from a SPI Flash Device, the CEC1302 validates the code using a digital signature encoded according to PKCS #1. The signature uses RSA-2048 encryption and SHA-256 hashing. This provides automated detection of invalid code that may be a result of malicious or accidental corruption. It occurs before each boot of the host processor, thereby ensuring a hardware based root of trust not easily thwarted via physical replacement attack.

clicker 2 for CEC1302 (MIKROE-1969), by MikroElektronika, is the big brother of CEC1302 Clicker (MIKROE-1970). Boasting not one, but two mikroBUS host sockets, this starter development kit brings click board connectivity to the 32-bit ARM Cortex-M4 CEC1302 microcontroller, with its integrated cryptographic engine. Connect the desired click board to enhance it with endless features. It's preprogrammed with a fast USB HID bootloader. Use it to upload your firmware and clicker will become a working device. This board features all you need to get started: 32-bit CEC1302 microcontroller, USB connector, two LEDs and push buttons, reset button, mikroProg connector and headers for interfacing with external electronics.



clicker 2 for PIC18FJ is a compact development kit with two mikroBUS™ sockets for click board connectivity. You can use it to quickly build your own gadgets with unique functionalities and features. It carries an 8-bit PIC18F87J50 microcontroller with a built-in USB-HID bootloader that makes it easy to program. A mikroProg connector is also available. Whichever way you upload the firmware, you can turn clicker 2 into a standalone gadget because it has a li-po battery connector. The battery (sold separately) can be charged via USB thanks to the LTC® 3586-2 power management IC. Additional features include 2 x2 6 connection pads on the sides of the board, and some buttons, switches and LEDs.
