Introduction

The ClickBeetle™ concept offers a versatile modular approach for fast application and prototype development in an unprecedented small form factor. By combining boards from the ClickBeetle™ family your pre-prototype reference board is instantly ready. Additional customized extensions boards can be provided in less than 4 weeks.

Overview

ClickBeetle specification

Select the suitable ClickBeetle™ MCU board to set the brain and RF protocol for your application. Add a PowerBeetle battery board with USB charger, some sensors or memory and the test system is ready to go with FEEU’s adapted SDK. If you need additional peripherals (e.g. special memory, sensors, RTC, HMI, … ) FEEU can help you to building a custom ClickBeetle™ extension board featuring the missing hardware for your application prototype.

Please note: The ClickBeetle™-Reference Platform and all related boards are evaluation kits intended for the testing of components and development of products featuring the same. These custom-build evaluation kits are designed for professionals to be used solely at research and development facilities for such purposes and are only available on a business-to-business basis.
