Clicker 2 for FT90x is a compact dev. 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 the FT900, a 32-bit FT32 core microcontroller, two indication LEDs, two general purpose buttons, a reset button, an on/off switch, a li-polymer battery connector, a USB Mini-B connector and two mikroBUS™ socket. A mikroProg connector and a 2×26 pinout for interfacing with external electronics are also provided. The mikroBUS™ connector consists of two 1×8 female headers with SPI, I 2 C, UART, RST, PWM, Analog and Interrupt lines as well as 3.3V, 5V and GND power lines. Clicker 2 for FT90x board can be powered over a USB cable.
Processing Your Imagination
This clicker 2 is powered by FT900, a 32-bit FT32 core MCU that operates at100MHz, has 256kB of flash, 64kB on-chip data memory, and 256kB shadow program memory.
The shadow program memory is where the code is executed from, enabling the MCU to work with zero wait states at 100MHz — making it faster than many MCUs with higher clock rates.
Powering Your Inventions
Focus on your main idea because clicker 2 will take care of the details for you: your prototype already has a power management system in place. The onboard LTC®3586-1 IC will provide 3.3V or 5V to the clicks. It turns the USB port into a battery charger. For convenience, clicker 2 for FT900 features a reset button and an ON/OFF switch (you can also connect an external ON/OFF switch).
With two mikroBUS™ sockets on clicker 2, you can take advantage of the huge potential of click™ boards, the constantly expanding range of over 222 add-on boards. Blend different functionalities together and come up with new and original inventions. That’s just two clicks and your project is half-way done. Go ahead and play with a few ideas right away:
Expanding Your Ideas
No idea is too big for clicker 2. Let your train of thought lead you anywhere. Consider all options, explore all directions. More click boards? Additional electronics? Done and done. clicker 2 has the same pocket-size form factor and the same pair of 1×26 connection pads as mikromedia boards. This makes it compatible with mikromedia shields letting you expand your device any way you want.
HID Bootloader Inside
To make your prototyping experience as convenient as possible, clicker 2 for FT900 is preprogrammed with a USB-HID bootloader. Just download our mikroBootloader application and you’re ready to upload your firmware.
Efficiently erradicate any bugs and iron out your code until it’s wrinkle free and your clicker 2 device works perfectly—use mikroProg™ for FT900. It’s a fast hardware debugger and programmer with outstanding performance. Especially when used together with our FT90x compilers.
Pushbuttons, signal LEDs, jumpers, pads for connecting an external ON/OFF switch, here are all the bits and details at your disposal:
- FT900, 3.10 DMIPS/MHz
- 256KB shadow program memory
- 256 kB of Flash
- 52 programmable GPIOs
- 2 mikroBUS host sockets
- USB Mini-B connector
