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

April 2024: 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 in the near future.”

Hall Current 17 Click: 

A compact add-on board that contains a precise solution for AC/DC current sensing,  the Hall Current 17 Click board features the ACS37010, a high-accuracy current sensor from Allegro. This Click makes the perfect solution for the development of 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 current 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, Applications Marketing at Allegro. “We anticipate a very strong 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 own hardware.”

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

Boards that address wireless connectivity, sensors, power management, interfacing, displays, motor drives, HMI and more are currently available. For more information, please visit https://www.mikroe.com/partners/allegro.
