The TA100 14-Pin SOIC mikroBUS-compatible socket board was developed for use with any of Microchip’s microcontroller boards that support a MikroElektronika mikroBUS interface. The board’s dimensions match the medium-sized add-on board as defined in the mikroBUS specification. Through use of an adapter board, the socket board can also be used with Microchip microcontroller development boards that support an Xplained Pro Interface.

The TA100 secure elements are one-time-programmable devices. Having a socket board allows for a customer to reuse the board with multiple TA100 sample devices for a given application or for multiple different applications. The 14-Pin SOIC socket board and TA100 secure element support both an I2C and SPI Interface.
