PIC24F Curiosity Development Board

Part Number: DM240004

The PIC24F Curiosity Development Board is a cost-effective, fully integrated 16-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 IDE and MPLAB Xpress Cloud-based IDE, the board includes an integrated programmer/debugger and requires no additional hardware, making it a perfect starting point to explore PIC24F MCUs.
The PIC24F Curiosity Board is the perfect platform to harness the power of 16-bit PIC24F Microcontrollers. Its layout and external connections offer unparalleled access to the Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs). 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.

Crafted for Cloud-Based Development
The PIC24F Curiosity Development Board offers seamless integration with software tool chain, including the MPLAB Xpress Cloud-based IDE, XC16 complier and MPLAB Code Configurator for easy set-up and prototyping.

Internet of Things (IoT) Ready
The PIC24F Curiosity Board can help turn your IoT design idea into a reality. Out of the box, the board offers several options for user interface—including switches, LEDs and potentiometer. A full complement of accessory boards are available via the MikroElectronika mikroBUS™ interface. To address the security requirements in IoT designs, PIC24FJ128GA204 comes equipped with integrated hardware Cryptographic engine for data encryption/decryption and authentication. In addition, Bluetooth® Low Energy communication can easily be added using Microchip’s BM71 module footprint.

TMIK024 - ADC Click by MikroElektronika
ADC Click is an add-on board in the mikroBUS™ form factor. It includes a 12-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) MCP3204 device that features 50k samples/second, 4 input channels, and low-power consumption (500nA typical standby, 2µA max). In addition, this board uses the industry-standard SPI communication interface. It is small in size and features convenient screw terminals for easier connections. By default, the board is set to use 3.3V of power. However, to use it with 5V systems, just place the PWR SEL SMD jumper in the 5V position.

TMIK025-DIGI POT Click by MikroElektronika
DIGIPOT Click is an add-on board in the mikroBUS™ form factor. It features a single-channel, digital potentiometer device (MCP4161) with 8-bit resolution (256 wiper steps) and the industry-standard SPI serial interface. The resistance value of the digital potentiometer goes up to 10 kΩ. This board features outstanding AC/DC characteristics and low-power consumption. It can be used in audio equipment, servo-motor control, battery charging and control, LCD contrast control, programmable filters, and more.

TMIK026 - DAC Click by MikroElektronika

DAC Click is an add-on board in the mikroBUS™ form factor. It includes a 12-bit, Digital-to-Analog Converter device (MCP4921) that features an optional 2x buffered output and SPI interface. The board provides high accuracy and low-noise performance for industrial applications where calibration or compensation of signals such as temperature, pressure, and humidity are required. The board is set to use the 3.3V power supply by default. You may solder the PWR SEL SMD jumper to the 5V position for use with 5V systems.

TMIK028 - GPS Click with Active GPS Antenna
GPS Click is an add-on board in the mikroBUS™ form factor. It’s a compact solution for adding GPS functionality to your device. It features the LEA-6S, high-performance u-blox 6 positioning engine. The board can interface with a microcontroller via UART or I2C, or data can be acquired using the PC application via USB. The board features a connector that is compatible with active and passive antennas. It can operate on 3.3V of power only.

TMIK029 - RELAY Click by MikroElektronika
RELAY Click is an add-on board in the mikroBUS™ form factor. The board features two G6D1AASI-5DC power relay modules, screw terminals for connecting external loads up to 5A, 250V AC/30V DC, and on-board transistors to drive the relays.

TMIK036 - microSD Click by MikroElektronika
The microSD Click is an add-on board in the mikroBUS™ form factor. The board features a slot for microSD cards used as mass-storage media for portable devices. Industry standard SPI interface ensures simple communication at high data rates. Use it for reading or storing data like music, text files, videos and more. The board is designed to use 3.3V power supply only.
