Microchip introduces PIC32MX and PIC32MZ Curiosity boards

November 10, 2016— Two prototyping boards for 32-bit applications are now available from Microchip Technology Inc., a provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions. The PIC32MX and PIC32MZ Curiosity Boards include an integrated programmer debugger and are fully incorporated into Microchip's MPLAB X integrated development environment (IDE).                     

The boards are designed for developing 32-bit applications and feature a range of peripherals as well as user interface and expansion options including two mikroBU click interface headers to support over 180 MikroElectronika Click Board. Both boards are designed to be connected and used right out-of-the box. Customers can run example projects without writing any code.

PIC32MZ EF Development Board features a 200 MHz PIC32 microcontroller (MCU) with an integrated Wi-Fi module and is ideal for designing Internet of Things (IoT) and connectivity applications. PIC32MX470 Development Board features a 120 MHz MCU and has been designed for audio, Bluetooth and other related generic applications. In addition, both the boards have USB connectors that can be used to develop USB Host or device applications.

The boards are fully integrated into Microchip's MPLAB X IDE as well as the award winning software development framework MPLAB Harmony. MPLAB Harmony is a flexible, modular, abstracted and fully integrated firmware development platform for PIC32 MCUs. It gives users access to a wide variety of peripheral libraries, RTOS capabilities, middleware, drivers and system services. In addition, it features over 200 pre-tested application project codes that can be used to jump start application development.
