Mikroe Force click - Force Sensing Resistors Module
- Product ID: 7834
- MPN: MIKROE-2065
Force click is a mikroBUS™ add-on board with circuitry for implementing Interlink Electronics’ Force Sensing Resistors into your projects (with a single zone force sensing resistor included with the click). The Force Sensing Resistor is a thin sensor made of two membranes that are separated by a spacer around the edges. When pressed, the gap between two membranes gets closed. This shorts the two membranes together, with a resistance that is proportional to applied force. The outputted analog voltage is thus a measure of force applied. The force sensitivity range is from about 0.2N to 20N (although it depends on the implementation). Force click communicates with the target MCU through the mikroBUS™ AN pin. It is designed to use either a 3.3V or 5V power supply.
