MPLAB Starter Kit for Digital Power

Part Number: DM330017-2

The MPLAB Starter Kit for Digital Power kit uses the dsPIC33EP64GS502 DSC to implement a buck converter and a boost converter. It is a digitally controlled power supply board that consists of one independent DC/DC synchronous Buck converter and one independent DC/DC Boost converter. Each converter can drive its on-board MOSFET controlled resistive load or an external load. The board has an LCD display for voltage, current, temperature and fault conditions, and an integrated programmer/debugger, all powered by the included 9 V power supply.
