MIKROE Partners With Allegro MicroSystems To Introduce New Click Boards Targeting Industrial Applications

MikroElektronika (MIKROE), the embedded solutions company that dramatically cuts development time by providing innovative hardware and software products based on proven standards, today announced that the company is closely collaborating with Allegro MicroSystems, Inc. (“Allegro”) (Nasdaq: ALGM), a global leader in power and sensing solutions for motion control and energy-efficient systems, to offer a broad portfolio of products that reduce development effort and accelerate time to market. Over the last quarter, MIKROE has introduced three new, compact Click™ add-on boards incorporating Allegro’s technology.

“As a third-party tool provider, we strive to promote our partners’ newest technologies and products by making them simple to use in the broad market,” said Nebojsa Matic, CEO of MIKROE. “We are delighted to collaborate with Allegro and look forward to introducing many more Click boards utilizing their sensor technology soon.”

Hall Current 17 Click: 

The Hall Current 17 Click board is a compact add-on board that contains a precise solution for AC/DC current sensing. It features the ACS37010, a high-accuracy current sensor from Allegro. This Click makes the perfect solution for developing applications requiring a combination of high-current monitoring and high isolation voltage between the primary high-current and low-voltage sides.

Angle 9 Click:

Designed to detect the absolute position of a permanent magnet, this board features the AAS33001, Allegro’s precision, contactless angle sensor with incremental and motor commutation outputs and on-chip linearization for 0° to 360° angular position, rotation speed, and directional measurement. Support for incremental output interface (ABI) and motor commutation (UVW) is also available. On-chip EEPROM enables factory and customer calibration parameters to be stored. This Click board is the perfect solution for the development of contactless potentiometers, contactless knobs, RC servos, and other angular position measurement solutions.

Hall Current 16 Click:

A precise solution for AC/DC sensing, this board is based on the ACS37002, a 400kHz high-accuracy current sensor from Allegro that features pin-selectable gains that can be used to configure the device to one of the four defined sensitivities and

corresponding current ranges, increasing design flexibility. In addition, an adjustable overcurrent fast fault provides short-circuit detection. This Click board facilitates the development of applications requiring a combination of high-current monitoring and high isolation voltage between the primary high-current and low-voltage sides.

“We are thrilled to partner with MIKROE as they release three new easy-to-use development tools that incorporate our industry-leading magnetic current and angle sensors,” said Ram Sathappan, Senior Director of Applications Marketing at Allegro. “We anticipate an extreme interest, as these sensor Click boards enable our customers to quickly develop innovative end products requiring high accuracy and reliability without having to develop their hardware.”

Like all Click boards from MIKROE, Allegro’s sensor technology solutions are packaged with mikroSDK™ software and a library with all the functions. The Clicks come with thoroughly tested and approved prototypes, making them reliable devices ready to use on the development board. This can shorten the development cycle by months and save considerable expense.

Currently, boards that address wireless connectivity, sensors, power management, interfacing, displays, motor drives, HMI, and more are available.
