MCC for MikroElektronika Click Boards

August 30, 2020 by Digi-Key

To help you bring your ideas to life even faster, Microchip has added quick-start software libraries for MikroElektronika click boards™ into the award-winning MPLAB® Code Configurator(MCC) plug-in.

Now, you can easily incorporate sensing, control, or communication functionality into your prototype design without the stress and hassle of low-level code development and validation.

MPLAB Code Configurator is a free software plug-in for MPLAB X and MPLAB Xpress Integrated Development Environments. It generates easily modifiable, production-ready application code for many 8- and 16-bit PIC® MCUs in just a few mouse clicks.

Mikroelektronika’s click add-on boards are the easiest way to add sensors, human interface, control, or wireless communications interfaces to your design. Based on the mikroBUS™ interface standard, click boards add incredible capability to any system with ease.

 

How to Get Started

If you’re new to this, there are only 5 easy steps to get up and running with MikroElektronika click boards in MCC:

Step 1: Choose a Development Board

Many of our newest development boards feature mikroBUS socket support. If you don’t already have one, we would suggest a Curiosity Development Board or an MPLAB Xpress Evaluation Board as a great starting point.

 

Step 2: Get MPLAB Code Configurator

You have two choices. MCC is available inside both the FREE downloadable MPLAB X IDE and the FREE and cloud-based MPLAB Xpress IDE. No matter which one you choose, you get the same great capability and ease of use.
