Fan 5 Click is a compact add-on board specially designed for fan speed management. This board features Microchip’s TC654, a PWM mode fan speed controller with FanSense™ technology suitable for brushless DC fans. This I2C-configurable controller implements temperature-proportional fan speed control, which lowers acoustic fan noise and increases fan life. It allows the speed control of two cooling fans based on the thermistor temperature or through the I2C-programmed PWM duty cycle. It also has a fan failure indicator to alarm the user when the fan’s RPM falls below the user-set RPM threshold.
This Click board™ is a perfect choice for networking equipment, servers, or other applications requiring cooling and temperature control.

ABOUT CLICK BOARDS™
Click boards™ follow a modular prototyping add-on board standard invented by MIKROE, which revolutionizes the way users add new functionalities to development boards. Click boards™ enable design engineers to change peripherals easily, cutting months off development time. To enable hundreds of Click boards to be connected to the microcontroller or microprocessor, we have invented socket standard - mikroBUS™. This uniform connection interface allows you to connect any Click boards to a main board instantly. The company releases a new Click boards nearly every day at 10am, and many leading microcontroller companies including Microchip, NXP, Infineon, Dialog, STM, Analog Devices, Renesas and Toshiba now include the mikroBUS™ socket on their development boards.
MikroElektronika (MIKROE) is committed to changing the embedded electronics industry through the use of industry-standard hardware and software solutions. In 2011, the company invented the mikroBUS™ development socket standard and the compact Click Boards that use the standard to dramatically cut development time. Now the company offers 1300+ Click Boards – ten times more than competitors - and the mikroBUS standard is included by leading microcontroller companies such as Microchip, Renesas and Toshiba on their development boards. MIKROE defined MCU development add-on boards and socket standard called SiBRAIN, and display board and display socket standard - DISCON. MikroElektronika also makes the world’s widest range of compilers and additionally provides development environments, development boards, smart displays and programmers and debuggers.
