element14 launches Arduino UNO Click Shield and multiple accessories for the Atmel Xplained
The capabilities of the SAMA5D3 Xplained board can quickly be extended and customised with a host of accessories that include WiFi and Bluetooth add-ons
element14 has announced the launch of the Arduino UNO Click Shield and a host of Click Boards and accessories for the Atmel SAMA5D3 Xplained, a low-cost, rapid prototyping and evaluation platform featuring the ARM Cortex A5 based SAMA5D36 microprocessor. These accessories are ideally suited for quick and easy implementation on development kits and feature low power operation and a small footprint.
The Arduino UNO Click Shield fits on the ATSAMA5D3-XPLD board using the common Arduino-compatible interface headers and provides two microBUS™ interfaces to connect any Click Board from MikroElectronika.
Click Boards are function-specific add-on modules with a common interface – four of which are launched today; the ADC, Bluetooth, SHT11 Environmental Sensor and Thermocouple Click Boards. With no hardware configuration required, these boards will revolutionize the way new functionalities can be added to development boards.
Additional add-on boards include the WIFI Dongle which connects via USB and an LCD8000 display and interface board which offers an 18-bit touchscreen at 480×272 resolution.
μC/Probe™ from Micrium is also available for use with the SAMA5D3. μC/Probe™ is an easy-to-use Windows application designed to read and write the memory of any embedded target processor during run-time and maps memory data to virtual graphic controls on the host computer and is available in Basic and Pro editions.
Supported by a 250,000 member strong element14 Community, customers can also benefit from direct access to engineers worldwide as well as other experts in legislation and more.
