MikroElektronika and NeoCortec have announced three new NeoMesh Click boards ideal for wireless mesh networking. The Click boards remove the necessity for engineers to create any development PCB hardware themselves, allowing them to initiate Proof-of-Concept testing of the NeoMesh network protocol stack in a real application quickly and at a minimal cost.

The Click Boards feature NeoCortec’s compact, low-power NC1000 and NC2400 network modules, which address a wide 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 the Click are available, one for each communication module that operates at 868MHz, 915MHz and 2.4 GHz. Average power consumption is as low as 20uA.

Thomas Steen Halkier, CEO of NeoCortec, explains: “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.”

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 customisation. The Click Boards come with the ClickID feature where the host system seamlessly and automatically detects and identifies the add-on board.”
