Release of tRF click aims to make it easy to prototype with Telit’s LE70-868 module

London, UK and Belgrade, Serbia, June 24, 2014 – Telit Wireless Solutions, a global provider of high-quality M2M solutions, products and services and MikroElektronika, producer of development tools for various microcontroller families, have announced the release of tRF click, the 76th addition to MikroElektronika’s line of click boards. These small extension boards are designed to offer easy hardware expandability and rapid prototyping for embedded developers.

tRF click carries the LE70-868 short range module from Telit, along with an SMA connector for an antenna, two radio communication LEDs, and a mikroBUS™ connector (MikroElektronika’s pinout standard found on all click boards).

Telit’s LE70-868 module has a wireless range of up to 10 km in line-of-sight. It has an embedded stack that is easy to integrate and use in point-to-point or star network topologies. tRF click enables radio data rates from 4.8 to 57.6 kbps with maximum output power of 500mW.

mikroBUS™ is a simple but effective pinout standard that allows developers to easily connect the tRF click to many of today’s popular development platforms like Raspberry Pi®, BeagleBone, LaunchPad™, Discovery and Arduino.

MikroElektronika’s latest generation of development boards also carry mikroBUS™ host sockets. This includes the company’s flagship “Easy” development boards (EasyPIC v7, EasyMx PRO v7 for Stellaris®, EasyPIC Fusion v7, EasyAVR v7), as well as the small PIC clicker designed specifically to conform to the form factor of click boards.

The pinout itself comprises two 1×8 female headers containing pins that are most likely to be used by the many different modules found on 78 click boards. Developers can just pick any click board and plug it into the corresponding mikroBUS™ host socket, instantly connecting it to a target development platform without having to perform any additional hardware settings.
