clicker 2 for PIC18FJ 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 PIC18F87J50, a 8-bit 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™ sockets. 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 2C, UART, RST, PWM, Analog and Interrupt lines as well as 3.3V, 5V and GND power lines. clicker 2 for PIC18FJ board can be powered over a USB cable.
Processing Your Imagination
clicker 2 for PIC18FJ is powered by Microchip’s 8-bit PIC18F87J50 MCU. It has up to 12 MIPS of operation, 128KB of program memory and 3.904 bytes of RAM.
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®3586-2 IC will provide 3.3V or 5V to the clicks. It also turns the USB port into a battery charger. For convenience, clicker 2 for PIC18FJ 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.
To make your prototyping experience as convenient as possible, clicker 2 for PIC18FJ is preprogrammed with a USB-HID bootloader. Just download our mikroBootloader application and you’re ready to upload your firmware.
