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 Kinetis 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.
USB HID Bootloader Inside
To make your prototyping experience as convenient as possible, clicker 2 for Kinetis 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 Kinetis. It’s a fast hardware debugger and programmer that exploits the MCU’s integrated encryption module, enabling secure firmware updating.
Pushbuttons, signal LEDs, jumpers, pads for connecting an external ON/OFF switch, here are all the bits and details at your disposal:
- MK64FN1M0VDC12 has 1MB Flash
- Runs at 120 MHz
- 256 KB boot SRAM
- 52 programmable GPIOs
- 2 mikroBUS host sockets
- USB Mini-B connector
