The 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. The 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.
"The PIC32 Curiosity boards have been carefully designed with the right feature set, affordable price and expansion options to provide a good balance between ease of use and rapid application development," said Rich Hoefle, director of marketing for Microchip's MCU32 division. "Customers can download and run an example project in minutes without downloading MPLAB Harmony or writing a single line of code. Then, by using MPLAB Harmony and expansion options, customers can use the same board and ecosystem to prototype an application that can go to market. It's this array of options that makes these two boards so powerful."
