    This looks like an very interesting board and the guide looks very well done. However, I wished I had read this before purchasing the MicroMod mikroBUS Carrier Board since I was not prepared to spend around $500 US to use a $20 board. From what I can gather, the MIKROE Necto Studio requires a $299 license to use it. Also, to run this on Linux or MAC OS, the MIKROE CODEGRIP for STM32 is required since the mikrProg is only supported on Windows.

    I have a number of Mikroe boards and was looking forward to use this board with something like the ES32 MicroMod, but I suppose I'll have to shelve that idea for now.

      Hi there, thank you for purchasing a MicroMod mikroBUS™ carrier board. Here are some options that may assist you:

      • MikroElektronika does offer a free 30-day trial license for Necto Studio; you just need to create a new user account. You can also use a different programmer to upload the compiled *.hex file.
        • Unfortunately, there isn't an ESP32 compiler available for Necto Studio. Only the STM32 MicroMod processor board is supported in Necto Studio with a compiler.
        • In my experience the 30-day trial was not 30 days from the activation, but it seemed to track the number of days that the software was actually used/open.
      • In order to support all the available Click boards, you could port the mikroSDK to be used in the Arduino IDE or Espressif SDK.
      • Otherwise, you can still use the Arduino IDE with the ESP32 processor board. However, support for any Click boards would be limited to compatible Arduino libraries.
