Combine Raspberry Pi 4 with your Favourite Click Boards™
Start your project development with our Pi 4 Click Shield fast and easy. The Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, combined with the mikroBUS™ and Shuttle socket, provides you immediate access to hundreds of Click boards™ in our offer, allowing you to create a limitless number of applications with one host board.
The Pi 4 Click Board™ Shield is the perfect way to expand your development board's functionalities compatible with Raspberry Pi 4 pinout. The Pi 4 Click Shield provides two mikroBUS™ and one Shuttle socket to add any functionality from our ever-growing range of Click boards™. We are fully stocked with everything, from sensors and WiFi transceivers to motor control and audio amplifiers.
The Pi 4 Click Board™ Shield is compatible with Raspberry Pi 4 Model B that comes with a 1.5GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 processor, onboard 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5, full gigabit Ethernet, two USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, and dual-monitor support via a pair of micro HDMI (HDMI Type D) ports for up to 4K resolution. The Raspberry Pi 4 can also be powered via a USB-C port, enabling additional power to be provided to downstream peripherals when used with an appropriate PSU. This Click Shield also comes with a small onboard fan that keeps your Raspberry Pi 4 board at a comfortable operating temperature even under heavy load.
This development platform provides users with an effortless and common way to combine the Raspberry Pi 4 footprint compatible development board with their favourite Click boards™ in their upcoming projects.
Note: Raspberry Pi 4 is not included in the package.
The Pi 4 Click Board™ Shield comes equipped with two proprietary mikroBUS™ sockets, allowing all the Click board™ devices to be interfaced with the Raspberry Pi 4 board with no effort at all. This way, Mikroe allows its users to add any functionality from our ever-growing range of Click boards™, such as WiFi, GSM, GPS, Bluetooth, ZigBee, environmental sensors, LEDs, speech recognition, motor control, movement sensors, and many more. More than 1077 Click boards™, which can be stacked and integrated, are at your disposal.
In addition to the mikroBUS™ sockets, this Click Shield also has one additional ICD BOX header intended to be used with mikroBUS™ Shuttle. mikroBUS™ Shuttle, which carries one mikroBUS™ slot, is an ideal solution when there is a demand to have more Click boards™ than the development system can support. Being connected with the flat ribbon cable mikroBUS™ Shuttle allows being freely positioned according to the application's requirements.
As mentioned before, the Pi 4 Click Board™ Shield also comes with a small onboard fan that keeps your Raspberry Pi 4 board at a comfortable operating temperature even under heavy load. The 30mm×30mm×10mm ultra-quiet powerful brushless DC fan is driven from the +5V pin on the GPIO header and makes it possible to bring the CPU temperature down to 45°C and keep it temperature-stable. The temperature-controlled fan delivers up to 3.45CFM of airflow over the processor, memory, and power management IC.
The Pi 4 Click Board™ Shield has an onboard ADC, the ADS115, precise low-power 16-bit I2C compatible analogue-to-digital converter from Texas Instruments, which enables measuring the analogue levels. Since the Raspberry Pi doesn't have an analogue pin on the expansion connector, by adding an ADC, we've helped the usage of any Click board™ from our offer. It also has several jumper selectors, JP1-JP3 which allows whether the GPIO pin from Raspberry Pi 4 board or ADC pin from ADS115 will be directed to the AN pin of the mikroBUS™ or mikroBUS Shuttle socket. In addition to these jumpers, a jumper labelled as JP4 enables the I2C address selection of the ADS1115.
Once you connect Raspberry Pi 4 board with our Pi 4 Click Board™ Shield, it will allow you access to hundreds of Click boards™ working with 3.3V or 5V logic voltage levels. For checking which Click boards™ is compatible with Raspberry Pi 4 board, please open our Click Shop filter. Our Click boards™ is equipped with a library containing functions and example source codes for Mikroe compilers available on LibStock, which can be used, as a reference, for further development.
