Click Board Examples
TMIK024 - ADC Click by MikroElektronika
ADC Click is an add-on board in the mikroBUS™ form factor. It includes a 12-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) MCP3204 device that features 50k samples/second, 4 input channels, and low-power consumption (500nA typical standby, 2µA max). In addition, this board uses the industry-standard SPI communication interface. It is small in size and features convenient screw terminals for easier connections. By default, the board is set to use 3.3V of power. However, to use it with 5V systems, just place the PWR SEL SMD jumper in the 5V position.

TMIK025-DIGI POT Click by MikroElektronika
DIGIPOT Click is an add-on board in the mikroBUS™ form factor. It features a single-channel, digital potentiometer device (MCP4161) with 8-bit resolution (256 wiper steps) and the industry-standard SPI serial interface. The resistance value of the digital potentiometer goes up to 10 kΩ. This board features outstanding AC/DC characteristics and low-power consumption. It can be used in audio equipment, servo-motor control, battery charging and control, LCD contrast control, programmable filters, and more.

TMIK026 - DAC Click by MikroElektronika
DAC Click is an add-on board in the mikroBUS™ form factor. It includes a 12-bit, Digital-to-Analog Converter device (MCP4921) that features an optional 2x buffered output and SPI interface. The board provides high accuracy and low-noise performance for industrial applications where calibration or compensation of signals such as temperature, pressure, and humidity are required. The board is set to use the 3.3V power supply by default. You may solder the PWR SEL SMD jumper to the 5V position for use with 5V systems.

TMIK027 - GSM Click with GSM Antenna (right angle)

SM Click is an add-on board in the mikroBUS™ form factor. It is a perfect solution for adding a GSM/GPRS communication layer to your device. It features a Telit GL865-QUAD GSM/GPRS module which supports the GSM/GPRS 850/900/1800/1900 MHz Quad-band frequency. The board contains the TXB0106, a 6-bit bidirectional voltage-level translator, as well as a SIM-card socket. GSM Click communicates with the target microcontroller via seven mikroBUS™ lines RX, TX, INT, PWM, CS, RST and AN. The board can use either 3.3V or 5V of power. The LED diode indicates the presence of the power supply.

Summary

Overview:

The PIC32MM Curiosity Development Board features the new eXtreme Low Power (XLP), PIC32MM “GPL” family (PIC32MM0064GPL036) of low cost microcontrollers. This board is a simple and easy to use platform that facilitates quick PIC32MM evaluation, experimentation and application prototyping. The board also includes an integrated programmer/debugger and offers seamless integration with Microchip’s MPLAB® X IDE and MPLAB Code Configurator for easy set-up and development.

Expand your Curiosity:

Owing to its low power, low cost and expansion capabilities, the PIC32MM Curiosity Development Board is ideal for developing battery operated applications, portable medical monitoring devices and IoT sensor nodes. The board also offers various user interfaces like switches, LEDs, potentiometer and supports a MikroElektronika mikroBUS™ interface that lets you tap into an ecosystem of over 300+ add-on click boards™ enabling customers to accelerate application prototype development. Additionally, Bluetooth® Low Energy communication can easily be added using Microchip’s BM71 module footprint.

Get Started: 

To help you hit the ground running right out of the box, we have pre-programmed the PIC32MM Curiosity Development Board with a RGB color mixing application. In this demo, the potentiometer can be used to adjust each color channel intensity, independently, while the push buttons are used to select the channel to be adjusted. The RGB color mixing demo can be downloaded from the Documentation & Software section below.

To further enable you to expand your applications, we have created various MikroElektronika click boards™ demos that can be downloaded from the click boards™ Examples tab below:
