Win a Microchip nanoWatt XLP 16-Bit Development Board!

by donpedro

“EP&Dee” is offering its readers the chance to win a Microchip XLP 16-bit Development Board. The XLP 16-bit board permits users to explore and evaluate extreme low-power features, and learn low-power software and hardware techniques. It provides a low-cost, highly configurable development system for Microchip’s extreme low power 16-bit PIC24F microcontrollers which feature sleep currents down to 20nA and various headers are available to measure both microcontroller and component power consumption.
The board supports development on PIC24F16KA102, PIC24FJ64GA102 and PIC24F64GB002 families of MCUs. The board can be powered by over five sources including batteries and energy harvesting modules and supports a variety of common components that can be selectively enabled. It was also expandable through its modular interface, providing for the addition of advanced interfaces and connectivity methods. The board supports a wide voltage range; from 1.8V to 5.5V.
The XLP 16-Bit Development Board functions as a demonstration platform on initial power-up. The included demonstration software takes a temperature measurement, datalogs information to the serial data EEPROM and displays information to a host PC via a USB connection. Additional software is provided to demonstrate
low-power techniques and IC interface routines.
Today’s portable products need to operate longer with less power and more functionality. Microchip’s nanoWatt XLP microcontrollers contain features that are ideally suited for applications such as remote sensors powered by energy harvesting or sealed-battery applications, which can run for more than 20 years from a single battery. nanoWatt XLP technology gives designers the flexibility to customize their applications for the lowest power consumption through multiple internal wake-up sources, such as Real-Time Clock and Calendar alarm, Brown-Out Resets, interrupts and Watch-dog Timers, all while maintaining the I/O states.
