Curiosity Development Board

Microchip's fully integrated, 8-bit development platform for first-time users, designers, and those requiring a feature-rich rapid prototyping board

Image of Microchip's Curiosity Development BoardMicrochip Technology's Curiosity Development Board is offered as a 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. Leveraging Microchip's MPLAB® X Integrated Development Environment, the Curiosity Development Board is an ideal platform for harnessing the power of modern 8-bit PIC® microcontrollers (MCUs). The layout and external connections provide easy access to the Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) available on many newer 8-bit PIC MCUs. These CIPs simplify the design and keep system power consumption and BOM costs low by enabling the user to integrate various system functions onto a single MCU.

Internet of Things ready, the Curiosity Development Board comes with several options for the user interface including physical switches, an mTouch® capacitive button, and an on-board potentiometer. Accessory boards are available via the MikroElectronika Mikrobus™ interface footprint. In addition, users can add Bluetooth® Low Energy communication with the Microchip RN4020 module.
