Chameleon 16-bit Development Kit

Part Number: TDKCHA001

No Longer Available
This product is no longer available for sale.
The ChameleonTM 16-Bit Development Kit from Nurve Networks is the evolution of the high performance, small footprint, application development board. This credit card sized computer includes (2) processors, (9) processing cores, 1 MByte of on board FLASH, 64K of EEPROM, and over 200 MIPS of processing power! The numerous I/O interfaces include composite video for NTSC/PAL generation, VGA, audio out, PS/2 for keyboards and mice. Additionally, the Chameleon has a number of general purpose digital I/O lines and analog inputs making the Chameleon perfect for industrial controllers, experimentation, education, wearable computing, or hobbyist use.

The real power of the Chameleon is based on its dual processor design. The Chameleon uses a PIC24 MCU running at 40MHz as the master processor, and a multi-core Propeller chip as the media slave processor. Thus, instead of taxing a single processor system to do everything, the Chameleon offloads all media processing to the Propeller chip, which has 8 processing cores to perform tasks such as generate video, audio, read keyboards and mice, etc. Complex and rich media applications can be developed easily by leveraging the Propeller chip's media rendering abilities and huge software library. For example, applications can generate TV signals, VGA output, read keyboards and mice, with only a few lines of code.

CMX-RTX for dsPIC30F

Part Number: SW300031

No Longer Available
This product is no longer available for sale.
In some cases, well-structured linear programming is sufficient for a product. However, in most cases, programmers appreciate not having to worry about structuring their code to perform all necessary tasks in a timely manner. CMX-RTX™ helps by allowing tasks (pieces of code that do specific duties) to run quasi-concurrently. That is, tasks seem to run at the same time - doing many specific jobs simultaneously.

CMX-RTX takes the headaches out of real-time programming. The software lets the programmer concentrate on the overall application while it takes care of the details. CMX-RTX lets you finish projects faster and more efficiently.

Some real-time operating systems offer only cooperative scheduling, which means that the running task is required to call the scheduler to perform a task switch. Others offer time slicing in which each task runs for a given period of time and then must switch tasks, regardless of conditions. Also others claim to be fully preemptive, yet they do not allow any interrupt to cause a preemption. All of these models will fail at one point or another.

CMX-RTX allows a task of higher priority that is able to run (whether starting or resuming) to preempt the running task. The scheduler saves the context of the running (lower priority) task and restores the context of the higher priority task so that it is now running. A truly preemptive RTOS allows interrupts to cause an immediate task switch, which means that the interrupts now have the added ability of using the RTOS's functions.

CMX-Tiny for dsPIC30F

Part Number: SW300032

No Longer Available
This product is no longer available for sale.
CMX-Tiny+ is a compact, real-time operating system that allows tasks to run quasi-concurrentlly, seeming to process multiple jobs simultaneously. CMX-Tiny+ has been especially designed to offer such a small Flash/RAM footprint that it can be used with only the onboard Flash/RAM of the dsPIC30F as a single-chip solution. Based upon a scaled-down version of the popular CMX-RTX, CMX-Tiny+ retains most of the power of CMX-RTX, including its more frequently used functions.
Like its larger counterpart, CMX-Tiny+ takes the headaches out of real time programming. The software lets the programmer concentrate on the overall embedded application while taking care of the real-time program details. The result is projects that are finished faster and more efficiently.

The Power-Line Modem (PLM) PICtail™ Plus Daughter Board provides communication over power-lines using a Binary Phase Shift Keying (BPSK) modulation scheme. These boards interface to the popular Explorer 16 Development Board and operate in the CENELEC C consumer frequency band at a carrier frequency of 129.6 kHz. The software modem runs on the dsPIC33F Digital Signal Controller (DSC) and utilizes an Analog Front End (AFE) to interface to the AC power mains.

Each of the communication nodes utilizes a high voltage (HV) adapter cable that connects the Consumer-Band BPSK-Based 7.2 Kbps Power-Line Soft-Modem to the AC mains. The HV adapter cable incorporates the circuitry required to provide the noise-filtering and isolation from the power-line.

The original PICDEM Lab Development Board has remained one of the most popular development tools for PIC MCUs since its introduction. Microchip has taken this concept and expanded it for 21st century embedded development. The PICDEM Lab II Development Board supports any 8-bit PIC microcontroller (6-, 8-, 14-, 18-, 20-, 28- and 40-pin footprints), and provides an expansive array of connections for programming, I/O, analog and communications interfaces. The PICDEM Lab II Development Board will be a valuable resource to engineers across a broad spectrum of specialties, from analog designers looking to explore the power and flexibility of MCU-based systems to engineering professors seeking a flexible and relevant teaching tool that they can add to their curricula.

Hardware Flexibility Enables Experimentation
In keeping with the original, the PICDEM Lab II Development Board was designed to give you a simple development experience without the hassle of and expense of building a custom PCB in the early stages of your project. You can design a system with one or several PIC MCUs, since power and programming connections are replicated across all of the available sockets. Off- chip connections can be made in any manner, and the expansive breadboard provides a convenient area to add analog signal conditioning and drive components to a design. Three separate power supplies give the capability to provide fixed or variable voltage to a system. With several industry-standard interfaces in addition to a system of configurable conntectors, the off-board expansion possibilities are abundant.

This item is not available for the academic discount.

Click here to go to the MPLAB ICD 3 page.

An all-in-one debugger/programmer solution: MPLAB® ICD 2 is a low cost, real-time debugger and programmer for selected PIC® MCUs and dsPIC® DSCs. Using Microchip Technology's proprietary In-Circuit Debug functions, programs can be downloaded, executed in real time and examined in detail with the debug functions of MPLAB. Set watch variables and breakpoints from symbolic labels in C or assembly source code, and single step through C source lines or into assembly code. MPLAB ICD 2 can also be used as a development programmer for supported MCUs.


The secret behind In Circuit Debugging is two dedicated hardware lines (microcontroller pins used only during debugging mode) that control In Circuit Serial Programming™ (ICSP™) of the device and, afterwards, debugging through proprietary, on-chip firmware. The ICD 2 debug features are built into the microcontroller and activated by programming the debug code into the target processor. There is some shared overhead expense that includes one stack level, some general purpose file registers and a small area of program memory when in the debug mode.
IMPORTANT NOTE: MPLAB ICD 2 requires minimal design guidelines be followed to ensure stable communications between the unit and the target.

The MPLAB ICD 2 connects using USB or RS-232 between the design engineer's PC operating with MPLAB IDE and their product board (target) being developed. It acts as an intelligent interface/translator between the two, allowing the engineer to look into the active target board's microcontroller, viewing variables and registers at breakpoints with MPLAB watch windows. A breakpoint can be set to halt the program at a specific location. The program can be single-stepped or run at full speed. At breakpoints, data and program memory can be read and modified. Additionally, the MPLAB ICD 2 can be used to program or reprogram the Flash-based microcontroller while installed on the board.

PICBASIC PRO Compiler (Gold Edition)

Part Number: SW500041

No Longer Available
This product is no longer available for sale.
The Legendary BASIC Compiler for PIC® Microcontrollers

PICBASIC Pro™ (PBP) is a world class BASIC compiler for rapid development of Microchip PIC microcontroller based projects. It is lightning fast and generates optimized, machine-ready code. It is intended to be a professional development tool, though its painless syntax also makes it a favorite among hobbyists and institutions of learning.  PBP Gold Edition supports more than 500 MCUs in the following device families: PIC10, PIC12, PIC16, PIC18 MCUs.

Technical Details
PBP generates Assembly language that consists of hand-tuned macros and library routines. This laborious approach in development makes for extreme efficiency in handling operations with a variety of variable types. Each math and comparison operation is generated according to the specific variable types that are used as inputs and output. High-level commands are included as library routines that are reused to minimize code space consumption, and these routines are tuned based on the device's memory characteristics and selected oscillator frequency.

The code that PBP generates is efficient and optimized. Execution speed rivals that of any C compiler (for PIC® MCUs) on the market. You don't have to compromise product performance in order to save time in development. You can have both.

PBP does not use a software stack. This speeds execution of subroutine calls and limits PBP programming to a single, global namespace. All variables are globally accessible and care should be taken not to 'step on' critical values in subroutines and interrupt handlers. PBP uses the hardware stack for GOSUB and interrupts. The depth of the stack imposes limits on nested subroutines.

Unless specifically noted, PBP commands don't consume internal resources like timer modules. Our timed pauses are software-based and none of our loop structures touch the hardware stack. The peripheral modules are free for the developer to use when needed.

Each supported device is mapped thoroughly in the PBP device files. PBP handles all RAM-bank and code-page switching, inserting code only when needed for the target device. All internal registers are known to PBP by name. This allows Direct Register Access with BASIC statements like "T1CON = 0", without the requirement of pre-defining the location of the register.

SchmartBoardTM: An Easy Way to Hand-Solder PIC MCUs in SOIC Packages

Once upon a time, an engineer, student or hobbyist could easily use prototyping boards, wire-wrap and bread boards to prototype and troubleshoot a circuit. The IC’s were in DIP form and soldering was not a hindrance. With advances in IC packaging technology though, it is uncommon to find a new IC available in a DIP package. For most engineers, hand soldering, SOIC, QFP, QFN or BGA with pitches as fine as .4mm is not possible.

SchmartBoard’s patented “EZ” technology resolves this problem. On any normal printed circuit board (PCB), the electronics pads (which the components are soldered to) are slightly higher than the solder mask (the colored part of the PCB). SchmartBoard has reversed this. On a SchmartBoard|ez board, the solder mask is much higher than the pads. This creates canals for the chip legs to sit in. Additionally, the canals have solder in them. This allows the user to easily melt the solder in each canal to the respective chip leg, without the possibility of creating a bridge. Virtually anyone can now hand-solder a .4mm pitch IC easily, quickly and flawlessly.
