16-bit Embedded Control Solutions 15 Development and Evaluation Tools A variety of hardware development boards are available for the PIC24 and dsPIC33 products, enabling you to shorten your design cycle and quickly develop prototypes. These boards are designed to allow easy connectivity to an MPLAB® ICD 3 In-Circuit Debugger, MPLAB REAL ICETM In-Circuit Emulator or MPLAB PM3 device programmer. Many also include integrated debugger and programmers. When combined with the MPLAB X IDE and the MPLAB XC16 Compiler, these development boards and starter kits allow you to quickly gain knowledge and experience using Microchip’s 16-bit MCU and dsPIC® DSC products. Photo Tool Part Number Description Explorer 16 Development Board DM240001 DM240002 This development board offers an fl exible way to evaluate the PIC24 MCU and dsPIC33 DSC families with modular PIMs to support various product families and a wide range of application daughter cards. Features on the Explorer 16 Board include: ■ Processor PIMs • DM240001: Includes 100-pin PIMs PIC24FJ128GA010 and dsPIC33FJ256GP710 • DM240002: Includes 44-pin PIMs PIC24FJ64GA004 and dsPIC33FJ32GP204 • Many other processor PIMs available for easy device evaluation ■ PICtail Plus connector for expansion daughter boards • Provide expansion for application-specifi c hardware • Allow for the easy evaluation of software libraries • Including USB, CAN, IrDA®, speech playback, graphics, Ethernet, ZigBee®, Wi-Fi®, and Bluetooth® ■ Full documentation at www.microchip.com/explorer16 Microsticks DM330013-2 DM240013-1 DM240013-2 Microsticks are USB-powered and include an on-board debugger/programmer. The boards are fully supported by MPLAB® X IDE and provide easy plug in to a standard breadboard with access to device signals for prototyping. The Microstick II works with all 28-pin PIC24FJ and dsPIC33EP families Microstick for 3V PIC24F K-series works with the PIC24F “KA” and “KL” families. Microstick for 5V PIC24F K-series works with the PIC24F “KM” family. Intelligent Analog PIC24 Starter Kit DM240015 This starter kit features the PIC24FJ128GC010 family with advanced integrated analog peripherals. The board includes an analog header, allowing clean signals to be accessed for easy prototyping The board also includes sensors for light, touch and temperature as well as USB, potentiometer, microphone and headphone interface. Comprehensive demos are included as well as integrated programmer and debugger. XLP 16-bit Development Board DM240311 This board is designed as a true platform for low power development, featuring the PIC24F16KA102, supporting other PIC24 XLP devices in 20- or 28-pin packages. It includes current measurement terminals for board or device level measurements and PICtail interface for expansion boards such as low-power wireless, SD/MMC, speech playback and more. The board is powered from AAA batteries, CR2032, energy harvesting, USB or a 9V supply. LCD Explorer Development Board DM240314 This development board supports 100-pin PIC® MCUs with eight common segmented LCD drivers. It ships with the PIC24FJ128GA310 and other families can be evaluated with different processor PIMs. In addition to the display, the board includes a PICtail Plus connector for daughter cards. It can be powered from USB, battery or 9V power supply, and includes VBAT battery back-up. dsPIC33EV 5V CAN-LIN Starter Kit DM330018 This USB-powered starter kit features the dsPIC33EV256GM106 with connections for CAN, LIN and SENT, as well as integrated programmer and debugger. dsPIC33E USB Starter Kit DM330012 This starter kit includes integrated programmer and debugger and expansion capability with the Multimedia Expansion Board or I/O Expansion Board.
