Win a MPLAB Xpress Evaluation Board from Microchip

12 APRIL 2016

Microchip_EA0316_Comp-MPLAB-Xpress-Evaluation-BoardThe new MPLAB Xpress Evaluation Board features an integrated programmer, a PIC16F18855 MCU and a mikroBUS header for system expansion with MikroElektronika’s 180+ Click boards.  The PIC16F18855 is a general-purpose 8-bit microcontroller that sports one of the largest selection of Core Independent Peripherals to date.

The evaluation board can be used with Microchip’s new MPLAB Xpress Cloud-based IDE.  MPLAB Xpress offers an easy way to get started with PIC microcontrollers, with zero downloads, sign-in or setup needed to start designing.  This free cloud-based IDE brings the most popular features of the MPLAB X IDE to Internet-connected PCs, laptops or tablets.  MPLAB Xpress offers a comprehensive feature set, including a library of Microchip-validated code examples, interface to MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) 3.0 for GUI-based microcontroller peripheral setup and automatic code generation, integrated MPLAB XC compilers, support for programmer/debugger hardware, and 10 GB of secure online storage with a myMicrochip account.  Users can easily migrate their projects to the full, downloadable MPLAB X IDE.  Additionally, the MPLAB Xpress Community enables developers to share their code, design ideas and knowledge.

The MPLAB Xpress Evaluation Board connects to a host computer (PC, Mac or Linux) as a USB Mass Storage device and allows the user to simply drag and drop an application executable (.hex) file to program the target.
