Mouser Electronics Now Shipping the Curiosity Development Board
July 21, 2015 - Mouser Electronics, Inc. is now shipping the Curiosity Development Board from Microchip Technology. The Curiosity Development Board is a cost-effective, fully integrated 8-bit development platform for first-time users, designers, and those requiring a feature-rich rapid prototyping board. The Curiosity Development Board includes an integrated programmer/debugger and requires no additional hardware to get started.
The Microchip Technology Curiosity Development Board, available from Mouser Electronics, uses Microchip's MPLAB® X integrated development environment (IDE) to simplify programming on the board. The Curiosity Development Board is an ideal platform for harnessing the power of modern 8-bit PIC® microcontrollers with Low Voltage Programming capabilities. The layout and external connections provide easy access to the Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) available on many newer 8-bit PIC microcontrollers. These CIPs simplify the design and keep system power consumption and BOM costs low by enabling users to integrate various system functions onto a single microcontroller.
The Curiosity Development Board comes with several options for the user interface including physical switches, an mTouch® capacitive button, and an on-board potentiometer. Users can expand functionality through MikroElectronika MikroBUS™ Adapter Click Boards, and can add Bluetooth® Low Energy communication with the Microchip RN4020 module. Out of the box or with expansion boards, the Microchip Curiosity Development Board provides the freedom to develop for a variety of applications, including Internet of Things (IoT), peripheral testing, robotics development, and proof-of-concept designs.
