MIKROE adds Wi-Fi 8 Click to Wi-Fi peripheral development boards

MikroElektronika (MIKROE) has launched WiFi 8 Click a compact add-on peripheral board that features Microchip’s ATWINC3400-MR210CA Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0-certified module.

Optimised for low power and high-performance mobile applications the WiFi 8 Click joins 15 other Wi-Fi clicks available from MIKROE, and the total number of Click peripheral development boards offered by the company is now well over 1000.

The Wi-Fi 8 Click board is intended for highly integrated and cost-effective applications, industrial wireless control, Bluetooth gateway, smart home applications, and much more. The module comes with integrated power and low-noise amplifiers, transmit/receive switch (for WiFi and Bluetooth), a power management unit, an integrated 2.4GHz chip antenna, and an additional 32.768 kHz clock for Sleep operation.

The board utilizes highly optimised IEEE 802.11 Bluetooth coexistence protocols and provides Serial Peripheral Interface to interface with the host controller.

MIKROE’s Click boards are supported by a mikroSDK compliant library, which includes functions that simplify software development.

Click boards feature the standard 16-pin mikroBUS socket which enables design engineers to change peripherals easily, cutting months off development time.
