Take your next idea to market with a development board that you can keep in your pocket. With full program and debug capabilities, the ATMega4809 Curiosity Nano Evaluation Kit offers complete support for your next design.

The ATMega4809 microcontroller (MCU) broadens the effectiveness of real-time control systems with a combination of intelligent hardware peripherals alongside the low-power capacity of the AVR core. Elevate your design with a high-speed ADC, Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs), and on-chip Configurable Custom Logic (CCL).

Use either Studio 7 or MPLAB X IDEs as a magnifying glass to look into your MCU and step through the debug. Free, easy-to-use graphical programming tools, START and MCC, allow you to intuitively program the target MCU.

Key Features

EVB-UPD301A

Part Number: EVB-UPD301A

The UPD301A is a stand-alone, small form factor USB Type-C™ Power Delivery (PD) Port Controller designed to adhere to the USB Type-C™ Cable and Connector Specification and USB Power Delivery 3.0 Specification. The UPD301A provides stand-alone operation for source PD applications, enabling cable plug orientation and detection for a USB Type-C receptacle, and implementing baseband communication with a partner USB Type-C device via the integrated USB Power Delivery 3.0 MAC.

The EVB-UPD301A is a complete, charge-only system implementation. It features all components needed to evaluate full power delivery operation of the device. The EVB supports up to two USB-C ports. The kit comes with a power supply daughter card for the first port. A second power supply card is available separately if the user wishes to operate in two port mode. The power supply interface enables the user to design alternate power supply implementations.

The MPLAB Code Coverage Tool is an easy way to measure code coverage. Simply enable the feature in MPLAB X Integrated Development Envinronment (IDE), build, program, test your application and read the Microcontroller (MCU). The MPLAB Code Coverage tool quickly displays which lines of code have executed and which ones have not. Unlike other solutions, it runs untethered and self-contained so no need to add clumsy cabling or fragile wires. With minimal impact to code size (<1%) and execution speed, testing can be completed in a single execution pass, avoiding expensive test hardware with a larger MCU. Powerful, intuitive tools permit quick navigation of coverage results within MPLAB X IDE for smooth transitions between test suite development and analysis. Summary views offer configurable dashboards of critical results. Custom reports can be generated in HTML and CSV formats with selectable content to meet your specific quality certification needs. MPLAB Code Coverage builds confidence in your application testing process without the hassle.

MPLAB Code Coverage requires MPLAB X IDE v5.25 or higher and one of the following MPLAB XC Compiler versions or higher:

The MPLAB® ICD 4 In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer is Microchip’s fastest, cost-effective debugging and programming tool for PIC® and SAM Microcontrollers (MCUs), dsPIC® Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs), and CEC flash microcontrollers. This speed is provided by a SAME70 MCU with 300 MHz, 32-bit MCU with 2MB of RAM and a high-speed FPGA to yield faster communications, downloads and debugging. It debugs and programs with the powerful, yet easy-to-use graphical user interface of MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The MPLAB ICD 4 is connected to your PC using a high-speed USB 2.0 interface and is connected to the target with a debugging connector which is also compatible with the MPLAB ICD 3 or MPLAB REAL ICE™ In-Circuit Emulator systems. The MPLAB ICD 4 also works with JTAG interfaces.

The MPLAB ICD 4 In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer supports many, but not all, PIC MCUs and dsPIC DSCs at this time. The firmware is continually being upgraded to add support for new devices. To request priority device support or to report issues, email: ICD4_update@microchip.com

If you have MPLAB X installed, you can browse to the “docs” folder under your MPLABX installation directory and open the file “Device Support.htm”. Alternatively, you can download it from this link: http://www.microchip.com/mplabx-ide-release-notes

Fast programming, increased functionality, at the same price as its predecessor, the PICkit™ 3.

The MPLAB PICkit 4 now has Programmer-to-Go functionality for 8-bit and 32-bit PIC MCUs. The firmware update comes with MPLAB X IDE v5.25. More to come!


The MPLAB® PICkit™ 4 In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer allows fast and easy debugging and programming of PIC®, dsPIC®, AVR, SAM and CEC flash microcontrollers, using the powerful graphical user interface of MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE), version 4.15. The MPLAB PICkit 4 is connected to the design engineer's computer using a high-speed 2.0 USB interface and can be connected to the target via an 8-pin Single In-Line (SIL) connector. The connector uses two device I/O pins and the reset line to implement in-circuit debugging and In-Circuit Serial Programming™ (ICSP™). An additional micro SD card slot and the ability to be self-powered from the target means you can take your code with you and program on the go.*

The MPLAB PICkit 4 programs faster than its predecessor with a powerful 32,bit 300MHz SAME70 MCU and comes ready to support PIC® and dsPIC® MCU devices. Along with a wider target voltage, the PICkit 4 supports advanced interfaces such as 4-wire JTAG and Serial Wire Debug with streaming Data Gateway, while being backward compatible for demo boards, headers and target systems using 2-wire JTAG and ICSP. The PICkit 4 also has a unique programmer-to-go function with the addition of a micro SD card slot to hold project code and the ability to be powered by the target board.

Note: The PICKit 4 is compatible with MPLAB X IDE version 4.15. Download Now. The MPLAB PICkit 4 User's Guide information can be found in the Help section of MPLAB X IDE.
