32-Bit Curiosity Development Boards

Microchip's 32-bit curiosity boards utilize the PIC32MX, PIC32MZ, and PIC32MM families of MCUs

Image of Microchip's 32-Bit Curiosity Development BoardsMicrochip's Curiosity development boards are fully integrated, 32-bit development platforms featuring the high-performance PIC32MX, PIC32MZ, and PIC32MM families of microcontrollers (MCUs). They are cost-effective, fully integrated MCU development platforms targeted at first-time users, makers, and those seeking a feature-rich rapid prototyping board. These boards include an integrated programmer/debugger and require no additional hardware to get started. The Curiosity platform is IoT ready out of the box and offers several user interface options including mTouch® capacitive sensing, on-board potentiometers, and physical switches. Security requirements in IoT designs are also addressed as select families. The 32-bit PIC MCUs supported on Curiosity boards come equipped with an integrated hardware and a cryptographic engine for data encryption/decryption and authentication. In addition, some members of the Curiosity family include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
