Give-away: 32-bit MCU board plus compiler kits

November 02, 2015 // By Julien Happich
This month, FTDI Chip is giving away six MCU development board packages complete with a dedicated compiler (including a full integrated development environment).

Worth Euro 315 each, the packages include a credit card sized Clicker 2 board for the FT90X 32-bit MCU supplied alongside a powerful dedicated compiler from MikroElektronika. This MCU delivers zero wait state operation at speeds of 100MHz by using its 256kByte built-in shadow RAM.

Alongside the MCU, the board has all the additional components requited for embarking upon an embedded system development project. These include LED indicators, crystal oscillators and configurable pushbuttons, as well as a power management/battery charging subsystem. Through IDC10 connectors, the Clicker 2 can link up with an array add-on boards covering various tasks - imaging, wireless communication, motion control and suchlike.

With regard to the accompanying compilers, each of these provides a full integrated development environment (IDE) with added library support for all FT90X features plus syntax colour-coded editor and project manager windows. Competition winners can choose from 3 different programming languages. These are C, Pascal and Basic.
