The mikroBUS socket on the board features a pair of 8-pin female headers with a standard pin configuration. These pins are divided into three groups of communication pins (SPI, UART and I2C), six additional pins (PWM, Interrupt, Analog input, Reset and Chip select), and two power groups (3.3V and 5V).
Programming is made easy with a modern USB-C connector. The Carrier Board also includes a MCP73831 Single-Cell Lithium-Ion/Lithium-Polymer Charge IC, allowing you to charge an attached single-cell LiPo battery. The charge IC draws power from the USB connection and can provide up to 450mA to charge the battery.
It's important to note that MicroMod Processors, Qwiic boards and cables, and Click boards are not included with the MicroMod mikroBUS Carrier Board and will need to be purchased separately. Currently, only the STM32 Processor Board is fully compatible with the mikroBUS Carrier board.
The MicroMod is a modular interface ecosystem that enables the connection of a microcontroller "processor board" to various "carrier board" peripherals. Thanks to the M.2 standard, the MicroMod standard allows for easy swapping of processors on the go. This lets you pair a specialized carrier board for your project with your choice of compatible processor!
