EP&Dee is giving you the chance to win a Microchip Curiosity Development Board (DM164137)! This board is a cost-effective, fully integrated 8-bit development platform targeted at first-time users, makers and those seeking a feature-rich, rapid prototyping board.
Designed from the ground-up to take full advantage of Microchip’s MPLAB X integrated development environment, the Curiosity Development Board includes an integrated programmer/debugger, and requires no additional hardware to get started. The Curiosity Development Board supports all low-voltage, programming-enabled 8-bit PIC® MCUs from 8 to 20 pins. Curiosity is the perfect platform to harness the power of modern 8-bit PIC Microcontrollers. Its layout and external connections offer unparalleled access to the Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) available on many newer 8-bit PIC MCUs. These CIPs enable the user to integrate various system functions onto a single MCU, simplifying the design and keeping system power consumption and BOM cost low.
Out of the box, the development board offers several options for user interface – including physical switches, an mTouch capacitive button, and an on-board potentiometer. A full complement of accessory boards is available via the MikroElectronika Mikrobus interface footprint. In addition, Bluetooth Low Energy communication can easily be added using an available Microchip RN4020 module.
