The PICDEM™ System Management Kit is a demonstration
and training tool designed for individuals interested in
system integration and design of a variety of applications.
PIC® microcontrollers provide a wide variety of integrated
peripherals ideally suited for these tasks.
System integration refers to the consolidation of multiple
systems into a single system. The PICDEM System
Management Board provides an I2C™ communications bus
typically found in applications, such as personal computers
or rack mount servers. The bus connects to multiple devices
used to monitor and record the health and status of a
computer system. The PICDEM System Management Board
integrates the functions of a dedicated Real-Time Clock
(RTC), serial EEPROM, thermal management controller and
analog-to-digital converter into a single PIC microcontroller.
In conjunction with the PICkit™ Serial Analyzer (included in
the kit), communication to the emulated devices on the bus
can be managed and monitored. The PICkit Serial Analyzer
is a low-cost development tool that allows communication
between a PC and the serial protocol of the system under
The PICDEM System Management board is populated with
Microchip’s Mid-Range PIC16F886 microcontroller, which
supports the following components or functions:
MCLR and switch, interrupt push button switches
4 LEDs
2C communications (SDA and SCL)
USART communications (TX and RX)
In-Circuit Serial Programming™ (ICSP™) programming pins
PWM output fan control
Fan tachometer input line
Heating element control line
Temperature sensor input line from MCP9700
32.768 kHz crystal clock (T1OSO and T1OSI)
3V lithium battery backup
