From Sensor to Cloud. The DM990101 IoT Ethernet Monitoring kit powered by Medium One (Software-as-a-Service) offers an all-in-one IoT package. To address Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) projects, the Ethernet technology becomes the most reliable and stable connectivity. This IoT kit uses an Ethernet LAN8740A and comes pre-loaded with Medium One cloud service, mobile application (from Saritasa) as well as corresponding Microchip firmware. The firmware in the kit makes use of MPLAB®Harmony, FreeRTOS™, and WolfMQTT allowing you to quick-start your IoT design. The Ethernet port is controlled by a 32-bit micro-controller that benefits from a 2MB Flash of the PIC32MZ EF providing plenty of memory space for your application code.
The security is addressed using WolfSSL features. The kit communicates with the Medium One cloud over MQTT with TLS security, using both publish and subscribe topics. The mobile app communicates with the Medium One cloud via REST over HTTPS.
The DM990101 comes with pre-configured code to support 4 sensors : pressure, temperature/humidity, air quality and motion. In addition, hundreds of other different sensors can be plugged into the MikroElektronka mikroBUS™ footprint allowing for prototyping a large variety of IoT proof-of-concepts. Sensors needs to be purchased separately on MikroElectronika.

Do you ever wish you could use your Microstick with an out-of-box, ready-to-use ‘breadboard’?  Your wish is our command with the Microstick Plusa cost-effective hardware and software expansion board for Microstick development boards.

If you own the original Microstick (DM330013or the Microstick II (DM330013-2), you know they provide designers with an easy-to-use, economic development environment for Microchip’s 16- and 32-bit MCUs and DSCs. But, as they are designed for use with a breadboard, they contain only one test LED. With the Microstick Plus, however, you have a collection of 11 ready-to-use peripheral devices: LEDs, buttons, piezo buzzer, potentiometer, analog temperature sensor, capacitive PCB button, clock crystal, reference voltage generator, USB-UART converter, CAN-BUS driver and I/O expander for MCP2200 USB-UART converter.

This little board is the perfect solution for those looking to develop and program quickly on a low-cost, easy-to-use development platform.

What is a Logic Analyzer?

Logic analyzers are great for debugging embedded applications. They operate by sampling a digital input connected to a device under test (DUT) and then displaying the recording on your computer. The Saleae Logic devices connect to your PC over USB. Just download the software at www.saleae.com. Navigate your data easily and intuitively with Logic's fluid and fully animated mouse-driven interface. The Saleae products support decoding for over 20 different protocols.

Tag-Connect cables provide a simple, reliable means of connecting Debuggers and Programmers or other test equipment to your PCB’s while lowering board costs and facilitating efficient production programming.

Tag-Connect uses a specially designed (Patent Pending) connector which eliminates the need for putting a programming header or other mating connector on every PCB. Instead, Tag-Connect uses tried and tested spring-pins rated for 100,000 operations to make a secure connection to a special footprint pattern of pads and locating holes on your PCB. The footprint can take up as little board space as 0.02 square inches (about the space needed for a couple of 0805 SMT resistors) which means you can locate the footprint right next to the MCU if desired.

This Kit includes 2 Tag-Connect cables Legged and No Legs, a sample PCB to demonstrate footprint for each type of cable, and a Tag-Connect Clip Board for debugging with a No-Legs cable. The cables use high-reliability spring pins that connect to a tiny footprint of pads and locating holes on your PCB. The Legged version has plastic legs that snap directly into the board to hold it securely in place. The No-Legs version has three steel pins that ensure accurate alignment and correct orientation and is hand-held during a fast programming operation. Tag-Connect cables save the board space and expense of a mating header component on every PCB.
