PIC32MZ EF Curiosity Development Board

Microchip offers its PIC32MZ EF Curiosity development board for IoT, robotics development, and proof-of-concept design applications

Image of Microchip Technology's PIC32MZ EF Curiosity Development BoardMicrochip Technology’s PIC32MZ EF Curiosity development board is a fully integrated, 32-bit development platform featuring the high-performance PIC32 MZ EF series (PIC32MZ2048EFM). The PIC32MZ2048EFM has a 2 MB Flash, 512 KB RAM, integrated FPU, Crypto accelerator, and excellent connectivity options.

The Curiosity development board includes an integrated programmer / debugger, an on-board Wi-Fi™ N module MRF24WN0MA-I / RM100, and is fully integrated with Microchip’s MPLAB® X IDE.

Each board provides two MikroBus® expansion sockets from MiKroElektronika and a Microchip X32 header to enable customers seeking accelerated application prototype development. The boards are fully integrated into PIC32’s powerful software framework, MPLAB® Harmony, that provides flexible and modular interface-to-application development, a rich set of inter-operable software stack (TCP-IP, USB), and easy-to-use features.

The following X32 boards are compatible with the Curiosity board:
PIC32 audio codec daughter card - AK4642EN (AC320100)
PIC32 audio DAC daughter board - AK4384VT (AC320032-2)

The boards and ecosystem have been designed to provide an excellent, out-of-the-box experience. Customers would be able to download and run example applications/projects instantly on the boards without the need to install the entire ecosystem. The demos have been developed to showcase PIC32 MCU features and the application development ecosystem.

The board offers expansion capabilities making it an excellent choice for a rapid prototyping board in connectivity, IOT, and general purpose applications.
