Simplifying 16-bit PIC® MCU Designs

Are you new to 16-bit PIC microcontrollers or starting a new design? Step into the world of unlimited possibilities through an easy-to-start ecosystem including the PIC24F Curiosity Development BoardMPLAB®Xpress Cloud-based IDE and MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC). This trio of tools can jump-start your design by facilitating creation of your prototype design.


PIC24F Curiosity Development Board

The PIC24F Curiosity Development Board (DM240004) 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.

Microchip offers a series of tutorials, user code and application notes to help you with your designs. These helpful design tips can be found at www.microchip.com/PIC24Fcuriosity.


MPLAB Xpress Cloud-Based IDE

MPLAB Xpress Cloud-Based IDE is an online development environment that contains the most popular features of our award-winning MPLAB X IDE. This simplified and distilled application is a faithful reproduction of our desktop-based program, which allows users to easily transition between the two environments.

The PIC24F Curiosity Development Board offers seamless integration with the MPLAB IDE software tool chain, including the MPLAB Xpress cloud-based IDE and the XC16 complier. To explore further, visit www.microchip.com/Xpress.


MPLAB Code Configurator

MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) is a free, graphical programming environment that generates seamless, easy-to-understand C code to be inserted into your project. Using an intuitive interface, it enables and configures a rich set of peripherals and functions specific to your application.

Offering an easy-to-use interface, it configures a rich set of peripherals, software libraries, and high-level functions specific to your application running on the PIC24F Curiosity Development Board. To learn more, visit www.microchip.com/MCC.
