Optimized for IoT processing

All the required building blocks to develop
a wireless IoT system

The Creator Ci40 board is a high-performance, low-power microcomputer that packs a cXT200 chip based on a subsystem optimized by us specifically for IoT applications. The cXT200 SoC includes a dual-core, dual-threaded MIPS CPU clocked at 550 MHz and an Ensigma connectivity engine that covers super-fast 802.11ac 2×2 MIMO Wi-Fi and low-power Bluetooth/Bluetooth low energy (Classic and Smart).

What's in the box

  • The Creator Ci40 IoT hub
  • 2 x battery-powered MikroE 6LoWPAN Clicker expansion boards with a mikroBUS™ socket for adding sensors
  • 3 x Click companion boards – a temperature sensor, a motion sensor and a relay switch (with hundreds more available from MikroElectronika)

GNU/Linux all the way!

Start building amazing projects

Run your choice of GNU/Linux distributions, including OpenWrt, Debian and Brillo – the new IoT-optimized operating system from Google.
Leverage your existing hats and clicks by easily using the Raspberry Pi or MikroBus compatible interface to quickly build amazing projects.

Low-power wireless connectivity

Multi-standard connectivity options

Support for key low-power wireless and wired protocols, including 802.15.4 6LoWPAN, 802.11 ac 2×2 Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 (Smart + Classic) and Ethernet.

Many I/Os and peripherals

Expand the capabilities of your IoT application

Creator Ci40 features plenty of I/O headers and standard interfaces (Raspberry Pi B+, mikroBUS) so you can add a wide choice of existing accessories or expansion boards, other I/Os available on the Ci40 (mikroBUS, UART, GPIO, SPI, I2C, ADC, etc.).
