The SparkFun MicroMod mikroBUS Carrier Board takes advantage of the MicroMod, Qwiic, and mikroBUS™ ecosystems making it easy to rapidly prototype with each of them, combined. The MicroMod M.2 socket and mikroBUS 8-pin header provide users the freedom to experiment with any Processor Board in the MicroMod ecosystem and any Click board in the mikroBUS ecosystem, respectively. This board also features two Qwiic connectors to seamlessly integrate hundreds of Qwiic sensors and accessories into your project.
The mikroBUS socket comprises a pair of 8-pin female headers with a standardized pin configuration. The pins consist of three groups of communications pins (SPI, UART and I2C), six additional pins (PWM, Interrupt, Analog input, Reset and Chip select), and two power groups (3.3V and 5V).
While a modern USB-C connector makes programming easy, the Carrier Board is also equipped with a MCP73831 Single-Cell Lithium-Ion/Lithium-Polymer Charge IC so you can charge an attached single-cell LiPo battery. The charge IC receives power from the USB connection and can source up to 450mA to charge an attached battery.
Note: Please be aware that MicroMod Processors, Qwiic boards and cables, and Click boards are not included with the MicroMod mikroBUS Carrier Board. These parts will need to be purchased separately. At this time only the STM32 Processor Board is fully compatible with mikroBUS Carrier board.
MicroMod is a modular interface ecosystem that connects a microcontroller “processor board” to various “carrier board” peripherals. Utilizing the M.2 standard, the MicroMod standard is designed to easily swap out processors on the fly. Pair a specialized carrier board for the project you need with your choice of compatible processor!
