PIC24FJ256GA7 Curiosity Development Board

Microchip presents a cost-effective, fully integrated, 16-bit development platform for rapid prototyping

Image of Microchip's PIC24FJ256GA7 Curiosity Development Board The PIC24FJ256GA7 Curiosity development board from Microchip Technology is a cost-effective, feature-rich, fully integrated, 16-bit development platform. This development board is well suited for first-time users, makers, and those seeking a rapid prototyping board. The PIC24FJ256GA7 Curiosity is seamlessly integrated with the Microchip software ecosystem including MPLAB® X IDE, MPLAB Xpress Cloud-based IDE, XC16 compilers, and the MPLAB code configurator. Development requires no additional hardware as it has an on-board programmer/debugger making it a perfect starting point to explore the latest low-cost and eXtreme Low Power (XLP) 16-bit PIC24FJ256GA705 family of Microcontrollers.

The PIC24FJ256GA7 Curiosity board enables easy and faster adoption of low-cost XLP 16-bit PIC24FJ256GA705 family of microcontrollers. The PIC24FJ256GA705 microcontroller, featuring up to 256 KB of ECC Flash and 16 KB of RAM, is ideally suited for low power general purpose applications. The layout and external connections of PIC24FJ256GA7 device on this board provides access to the core independent peripherals (CIPs) such as CLC, MCCP, and DMA. 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. In addition, wireless connectivity can easily be added using 2 mikroBUS™ interfaces and wireless connectivity click boards™. A full complement of accessory boards is available via the MikroElektronika mikroBUS™ interfaces. The board can enable applications with low power, low pin count, and small footprint requirements as in IoT sensor nodes. Out of the box, the board offers several options for user interface, including switches, RGB LED, and user LEDs. Turn IoT design ideas into reality with the PIC24FJ256GA7 Curiosity board.
