Featured 8-bit MCU Boards

The ATtiny3217 Xplained Pro evaluation kit is a hardware platform for evaluating the latest tinyAVR® microcontrollers. The evaluation kit comes with a fully integrated debugger that provides seamless integration with Atmel Studio.

The ATtiny3217 Xplained Pro is recommended for evaluation of the following products: ATtiny3217, ATtiny3216, ATtiny1617, ATtiny1616, ATtiny1614, ATtiny1607, ATtiny1606 and ATtiny1604.

The ATtiny3217 Xplained Pro evaluation kit does not include extension boards, which can be purchased individually.
ATtiny3217 Xplained Pro currently supports more than 20 extension boards — including wired and wireless connectivity, crypto authentication, QTouch capacitive touch kits as well as generic I/O and OLED boards.

The Functional Safety Field Engagement Board is based on the ATtiny3217 microcontroller demonstrating the various built-in safety features of the AVR® microcontroller, such as:

  • Power-on Reset (POR), Brown-out Detection (BOR), Voltage Level Monitoring (VLM) to ensure sufficient supply voltage.
  • Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) to ensure no code corruption.
  • Windowed Watchdog Timer (WDT) monitoring correct program operation.
  • Timer/Counter type D (TCD) fault detection.
  • Class B self tests designed to detect various faults on start-up or during program execution, and shut down the application safely in case of fault.

If you are interested in the kit, please contact your local distributor or Microchip representative.

Satisfy Your Curiosity
Your next embedded design idea has a new home. Curiosity is a cost-effective, fully integrated 8-bit development platform targeted at first-time users, Makers, and those seeking a feature-rich rapid prototyping board. Designed from the ground-up to take full advantage of Microchip's MPLAB X development environment, Curiosity includes an integrated programmer/debugger, and requires no additional hardware to get started.

Your Tool for Function Enablement
Curiosity HPC is the perfect platform to harness the power of modern 8-bit PIC® Microcontrollers. Its layout and external connections offer unparalleled access to the Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) available on many newer 8-bit PIC MCUs. These CIPs enable the user to integrate various system functions onto a single MCU, simplifying the design and keeping system power consumption and BOM cost low.

Internet of Things Ready
Have an IoT design idea? Curiosity can make it real. Out of the box, the development board offers several options for user interface -including physical switches and an on-board potentiometer. A full complement of accessory boards is available via the MikroElectronika Mikrobus™ interface footprints.

The PoE Programmer Adapter is used for application development and only connects the PICkit3/ICD3/Real ICE 3 when it is electrically safe. By mounting the PIC18 PoE Main Board to the programmer, new code can easily be loaded to the PIC18 PoE Main Board without risk of damaging the application. This also allows the PIC18 PoE Main Board to run on a non-PoE network.

Xpress Your Creativity

Brilliant ideas are fleeting. As soon as they are recognized, they must be captured quickly, and made real with the highest possible urgency. In embedded design, the creative process is often blunted by the massive array of choices required to simply begin the development cycle. The tasks of selecting a target MCU, finding the appropriate tool chain, and setting everything up on your PC can keep your best ideas from becoming great products. The MPLAB Xpress Evaluation Board (DM164142) was designed with a single objective – to help your ideas take the shortest journey from imagination to reality.

Crafted for Cloud-Based Development

The MPLAB Xpress PIC16F18877 Evaluation board offers seamless integration with our software tool chain, including the MPLAB Xpress cloud-based IDE. MPLAB Xpress is an online development environment that contains the most popular features of our award-winning MPLAB X IDE. This simplified & distilled application is a faithful reproduction of our desktop-based program, which allows users to easily transition between the two environments.

On-Board Application Processor

The PIC16F18877 MCU is the centerpiece of the MPLAB Xpress board. The product family features a 10-bit ADC with Computation (ADC2) for automated signal analysis, helping reduce system complexity. The MCUs include Core Independent Peripherals, communication, CRC/SCAN, Hardware Limit Timer (HLT) and Windowed WDT (WWDT) to support customers looking to add safety and monitoring to their system. Additionally, these products also feature power conserving functionality, including Idle/Doze operating modes, Peripheral Module Disable (PMD) and eXtreme Low-Power (XLP) technology for a wide range of applications.
