The Serial SuperFlash® Kit 2 allows evaluation of Microchip's Serial Flash Devices which are made using the SST SuperFlash® technology. The Serial SuperFlash Kit 2 contains three Serial Flash Daughter Boards. The Serial Flash Daughter Board is an evaluation board designed to interface with the mikroBUS™ connector on the Explorer 16/32 Development Board (DM240001-2). It can also interface with the PICtail™ Plus connector located on the Explorer 16 Development Board (DM240001).
EVB-LAN9252-PICtail™ Add-On Board is used for evaluating Microchip Technology’s LAN9252, a 2/3-port EtherCAT® slave controller with dual integrated Ethernet PHYs. It is an expansion board compatible with Explorer 16 development platform.
EVB-LAN9252-SPI has been produced to answer our customers' requests for a vehicle to allow evaluation of the LAN9252 EtherCAT Slave Controller (ESC), via an SPI Microcontroller abstraction.
This dual purpose board has the option to plug directly into some environments and allow fly-wiring to many more.
The LAN9252-3PORT EVB is an 3-Port EtherCAT slave controller which addresses our customers’ requests for a standalone platform to develop an EtherCAT slave device with SPI/SQI as the PDI Interface . This board supports on-board PIC32MX or option for other SoC’s. It supports three network connections with two integrated PHY’s in RJ45 sockets and Option for interfacing any third party PHY using MII interface .  For flexible network configuration Port 1 or Port 3 can be configured as upstream port. Integrated PHY’s optionally fit optical interfaces to accommodate fiber via an SFP module. This board is delivered in basic DIGIO mode and on power-up will appear to a host as an EtherCAT slave. The designer has freedom to develop further using PIC32MX

The LAN9252-4PORT EVB is an unique design by cascading two LAN9252 ESC in Back to Back configuration through the MII interface . It addresses our customers’ requests for a standalone platform to develop an EtherCAT slave device with SPI/SQI as the PDI Interface. This board supports on-board PIC32MX or option for other SoC’s. It supports four network connections with integrated PHY’s in RJ45 sockets. Integrated PHY’s optionally fit optical interfaces to accommodate fiber via an SFP module. This board is delivered in basic DIGIO mode and on power-up will appear to a host as an EtherCAT slave. The designer has freedom to develop further using PIC32MX.
The LAN9252 DIGIO board satisfies the demand for hardware only EtherCAT slave devices, and achieves this using LAN9252. We expose the DIGIO interface together with control signals and can operate without an attached MCU. The board allows for dual network connections to RJ45 sockets or can optionally fit optical interfaces to accommodate Fiber via an SFP module. This board is delivered pre-configured and on power-up will appear to a host as an EtherCAT slave.
EVB-LAN9252-HBIPLUS  is a progression from the original EVB-LAN9252-HBI board which allows evaluation of the LAN9252 device with an attached microcontroller.
Peripherals are provided which together with a supporting software development kit enable full usage of the platform.  A PIC32MX795 device is populated on the board with provision for other controllers via the Microchip PIM header.  Or a generic 0.1" header array.

Applications
  • HVAC
  • Industrial Control
  • Power supply monitoring
  • Serial terminal bridges
The RN4677 PICtail/PICtail Plus is a Bluetooth Dual Mode development board using the Microchip RN4677 Bluetooth Dual Mode module. The RN4677 module is a Dual mode Bluetooth module that complies with Bluetooth Core Specification 4.0. The RN4677 uses a simple ASCII command interface over the UART. The board enables evaluation of the RN4677 and development of Bluetooth low Energy applications in two different ways:

1) Out of the box:  When plugged into the USB port of a PC, the board will enumerate as a Communication Device Class (CDC) Serial device.  Through a terminal program, users can configure and control the module and transfer data using the easy to use provided command set.

2) As a PICtail/PICtail Plus, the board interfaces to one of hundreds of available PIC Microcontrollers through this  standard Microchip interface.  The PICtail bridges the host MCU UART to the RN4677's UART interface for data transfer or configuration using the straight-forward, easy-to-use ASCII style command set.
