A few weeks ago we sent out a newsletter asking you to send us your stories about how you're using MikroElektronika products...
After all, we're tool makers, our dev. kits are a means to an end, it's up to you to give them purpose. So when an item is being shipped from our warehouse out to the world, there's no telling how it will be put to use, what will become of it. It's like sending your kid off to college basically.
So like proud parents boasting about their little ones, we'll be sharing with you some of the stories we've received, with the hopes it'll inspire you with your own projects.
For example, check out this EasyPIC v7 equipped classroom from the Secondary technical school VTI-Roeselare from Belgium.
Willy Lievens & Franky Mestdagh: "The 10 EasyPIC v7 development boards were integrated in 10 stylish microcontroller desks. The finish encourages our future electronics engineers to enjoy techno-fun. A sidekick: Course content can be more colorful, warmer with more fun and some philosophy."
"Our rainbow gallery bridge is an application for the MicroC PRO for PIC PWM-library. Every student can control, with the EasyPIC v7 board, his own RGB-LED strip rainbow. This is color fun in overdrive…"
"The functional code samples, full functional application sources and the breadth of add-on boards were amazing, as were the schematics."EasyPIC v7 was a worthwhile investment for our school and our students."
Thanks Willy Lievens & Franky Mestdagh for sending us this report!
If you have a story of our own to share with us, just send us a message at email@example.com, include "My Story" in the subject line.
This is one of many messages we received from all around the world, so stay tuned for more stories coming up.

Alexandre (Lextronic’s CEO), our long-time partner and friend, fell in love with the Flip&Click since being introduced to it last year. He immediately recognised this being the solution to the plaguing Arduino shield limitation. He was one of the first to get their hands-on a prototype and started coding immediately.
Earlier this summer he decided to put this experience on paper by creating a step-by-step guide to using Flip&Click and click boards in the Arduino ecosystem. Our marketing team cooperated on the kit and packaging, the result is the new Flip&Click Starter Kit.[more info]

Magneto 2 click is a mikroBUS™ add-on board with Melexis's MLX90316 monolithic rotary position sensor. Sensing flux density with the IC surface of the MLX90316 allows the click to decode the absolute rotary (angular) position from 0 to 360 degrees.[more info]
