MikroElektronika annonuces Flip & click (Arduino-compatible) at Maker Faire Rome
MikroElektronika introduces Flip & click, a two-sided Arduino-compatible development board with four mikroBUS™ sockets.
Rome, October 16, 2015 – MikroElektronika today at Maker Faire Rome announced Flip & click, a two-sided development board that resembles a 32-bit ARM® powered Arduino on one side, while providing four sockets for more than 160 click boards™ on the other.
Intended to introduce click boards to the Arduino community, the blue side of the board carries AT91SAM3X8E MCU (like Arduino Due), an Arduino pinout, as well as a familiar configuration of LEDs. It’s programmable with the Arduino IDE through an onboard Micro USB port.
The other side of the board contains four mikroBUS™ sockets, which gives Flip & click plug-and-play compatibility with more than 160 click boards. Each click carries a single sensor, or transceiver, encoder, motor driver or any other type of integrated circuit or module. Even speech recognition modules, thunder detector and finger print scanners are available.
“Flip & click allows makers to untether their Arduino from the restrictions of shields. With four sockets and 160+ clicks to pick from, there’s more then 160^4 ways to mix them. Unleash those bottled up creative inhibitions, and let the monster loose,” said Product Manager Aleksandar Nikolic.
Visitors of Maker Faire Rome will have a chance to win a free Flip & click board by filling out a simple form at MikroElektronika’s stand (pavillon G, stand 32). After the faire, the board will be available for sale.
