NeoMesh Click boards speed development of ultra-low power, massively scalable IoT and Cloud-based sensor networks

Wireless mesh networking made simple by NeoCortec and MIKROE

January 2024: MikroElektronika (MIKROE), the embedded solutions company that dramatically cuts development time by providing innovative hardware and software products based on proven standards, and NeoCortec, the wireless connectivity experts and providers of ultra-low-power bi-directional wireless mesh network hardware and software solutions, today announced three new NeoMesh Click boards that are ideal for wireless mesh networking. The Click boards™ eliminate the need for engineers to create any development PCB hardware themselves, enabling them to initiate Proof-of-Concept testing of the NeoMesh network protocol stack in a real application quickly and at minimal cost.

The Click Boards feature NeoCortec’s compact, low-power NC1000 and NC2400 network modules which address a broad range of applications based on IoT and Cloud-based sensor networks, including smart building and smart workplace, metering, security, agriculture, transportation, industry 4.0, medical and food distribution. Three versions of NeoMesh Click are available, one for each of the communication modules which operate at 868MHz, 915MHz and 2.4 GHz. Average power consumption is as low as 20uA.

Explains Thomas Steen Halkier, CEO of NeoCortec: “The NeoMesh protocol is a natural choice when building battery-powered, highly scalable and reliable wireless sensor networks. Now, developers have access to a large selection of MCU, sensor and other boards which can simply ‘Click’ together to form a prototype device.”

Click boards follow mikroBUS™ a modular prototyping add-on board standard invented by MIKROE, enabling design engineers to change peripherals easily, cutting months off development time. Any Click board can be connected to the microcontroller or microprocessor on a main board. Many leading microcontroller companies including Microchip, NXP, Infineon, Dialog, STM, Analog Devices, Renesas and Toshiba now include the mikroBUS socket on their development boards.

Adds Nebojsa Matic, CEO of MIKROE: “The NeoMesh Click Boards are fully compatible with the mikroBUS socket and can be used on any host system supporting the mikroBUS standard. The boards come with the mikroSDK open-source libraries, offering a large degree of flexibility for evaluation and customization. The Click Boards come with the ClickID feature where the host system seamlessly and automatically detects and identifies the add-on board.”

MIKROE now offers over 1650 Click boards – more than any other company in the world. Clicks are available for many functions – sensors, power, motor control, HMI to name just a few. Considering wireless connectivity alone, designers can choose from 170 solutions.

About MikroElektronika

MikroElektronika (MIKROE) is committed to changing the embedded electronics industry through the use of industry standard hardware and software solutions. In 2011, the company invented the mikroBUS™ development socket standard and the compact Click™ boards for peripherals that use the standard to dramatically cut development time. Now the company offers 1500 Click boards – ten times more than competitors – and the mikroBUS standard is included by many leading microcontroller companies on their development boards. SiBRAIN™ is MIKROE’s standard for MCU development add-on boards and sockets and the company’s DISCON™  standard enables uses to choose between a wide variety of supported LCDs and touchscreen options. MIKROE also offers NECTO™, the world’s most flexible IDE, as well as industry’s widest range of compilers, plus development boards, programmers and debuggers. MIKROE’s Planet Debug™ – the embedded industry’s first hardware-as-a-service – enables designers to develop and debug embedded systems remotely over the internet without investing in hardware.
