No Longer Available
Part Number: DM240001

The Explorer 16 Development Board is a low-cost modular development system for Microchip’s 16-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers. It supports devices from the PIC24, dsPIC and PIC32 families. A variety of families are supported with processor Plug-In Modules (PIMs) for easy device swapping.  The board includes a PICtail Plus daughter card connector for expansion boards including USB, CAN, Ethernet, wireless, graphics and many more.  Coupled with the MPLAB ICD 3 In Circuit Debugger or MPLAB REAL ICE, real-time emulation and debug facilities speed evaluation and prototyping of application circuitry.

Recommendation for Migration:
For 'New Designs' or advanced features requirement, migrate to refreshed and cost effective "Explorer 16/32 Development Board" with several new features. Offering backwards compatibility, the Explorer 16/32 development board facilitates seamless migration from Explorer 16 development board to the new platform.
