Memory Products 15 Resources Development Tools Reduce development time and cost with Microchip’s development tools. Competitive market conditions force businesses to examine every aspect of their product life cycle to maximize productivity and minimize expense. Easy-to-learn, low-cost common development tools are one way to reduce risk and get to market faster. MPLAB® Starter Kit for Serial Memory Products (DV243003) Reduce time to market and create a rock-solid design using the MPLAB Starter Kit for Serial Memory Products. It includes everything necessary to quickly develop a robust and reliable Serial EEPROM design, and greatly reduces the time required for system integration and hardware/software fine-tuning. ■ 3.3 V and 5.0 V on-board voltage selection ■ Supports Microchip UNI/O bus, I2C, SPI and Microwire Serial EEPROMs ■ 1.8 V to 5.5 V external voltage support ■ Includes free copy of MPLAB X IDE ■ USB interconnect UNI/O Bus Parasitic Power Demonstration Board (AC243004) The UNI/O Bus Parasitic Power Demonstration Board is designed to illustrate how a standard half-wave rectifier and capacitor circuit can be used to parasitically extract power for a UNI/O device from the Serial Clock, Data Input/Output (SCIO) signal as described in application note AN1213. This reduces the number of connections necessary for adding a UNI/O device to your application down to two: SCIO and VSS. Serial EEPROM Plug-In Module PICtail™ Board Pack (AC243003) The Serial EEPROM Plug-In Module PICtail Board Pack is a series of boards designs around Microchip’s Serial EEPROM devices. The boards are designed to interface with the PICtail Plus connector as well as the MPLAB Starter Kit for Serial Memory Products and the PICkit™ 3 board, allowing you to get started right out of the box. ■ Plug-and-play with PICtail Plus connector and PICkit 3 connector ■ Test points for oscilloscope connections for fi rmware debugging (I2C and UNI/O only) ■ Microwire Buses are included for maximum fl exibility in development of your application Serial SuperFlash Technology Kit 1 The Serial SuperFlash Technology Kit 1 allows you to evaluate Serial Flash and quickly develop and test firmware using known good hardware. This kit includes three Serial Flash PICtail Plus daughter boards, each having a Serial Flash soldered on it. The Serial Flash devices included are SST25VF016B, SST26VF032 and SST25VF064C. Parallel SuperFlash Technology Kit 1 (AC243006-1) The Parallel Flash PICtail Plus Daughter Board is an evaluation board designed to interface with the PICtail Plus connector found on the Explorer 16 Development Board. The Parallel SuperFlash Technology Kit 1 contains two Parallel Flash PICtail Plus Daughter Boards. Each board has a parallel Flash device soldered on it. The parallel Flash devices included are SST38VF6401 and SST39VF1601C.
