The PICkit Serial Analyzer is a low-cost USB-based tool used to direct communication between a PC and an external serial device.

The kit comes complete with hardware (supporting I2C™, SMBus, SPI and USART protocols), an easy-to-use GUI (to configure and display communications) and a target demonstration board for out-of-the-box functionality. For more advanced users a DLL is also included as an API for developing custom software.

The PICkit Serial Analyzer simplifies the chore of managing serial communication with a device under test. The Windows® user interface (provided) configures the hardware and ‘scripts’ communication with the target device. Scripts created within the software GUI are saved to an internal library for future use. Once created, scripts can be conveniently assigned to push buttons or simply executed directly from the library index. All communication data and events are posted to a transaction window in a readable format.

Example custom GUI(s) are provided to demonstrate use of the DLL in each of the supported serial protocols. The examples come as projects for Visual Basic 2005 Express (free download from Microsoft®).

PICkit Serial Analyzer software uses Microsoft® .NET Framework. The installation process will automatically download .NET from the internet if not present.

STK600

Part Number: ATSTK600

A complete starter kit and development system for the 8-bit and 32-bit AVR microcontrollers that gives designers a quick start to develop code on the AVR, with advanced features for prototyping and testing new designs.

The AVR device connects to the STK600 using an innovative routing and socketcard sandwich system, which routes the signals from the device to the appropriate hardware.

Note that a routing card and socket card for the specific device would need to be purchase separately. For a list of card combinations and supported devices see Device Support Table

The system consists of a generic socketcard, on which the AVR device is inserted, and a device specific signal routing card, which routes the signals from the socket pins to the different functions on the STK600 main board dependant on the device. This design simplifies hardware setup when switching from one AVR device to another, since all connections from the device to the motherboard are determined by the routing card, a custom board for each device. The routing system is purely passive; no electronic components route the signals, so all I/O pins are directly accessible on the connectors with no altering of the electrical behavior.

The kit offers access to all device pins, and several useful hardware functions such as pushbuttons, LEDs, and dataflash to create a complete system for prototyping and testing new designs. Free Atmel Studio IDE lets designers write and compile firmware in either assembly or C language, and download the code to the target AVR device.

The board also has adjustable voltage supply and adjustable clock to the target AVR device. The VCC level and clock frequency can be adjusted on the fly from Atmel Studio, giving designers the ability to test the performance at different voltage levels and clock frequencies with just the click of a button.

The Microchip Zero Touch Secure Provisioning Kit for AWS IoT helps designers to quickly and securely develop IoT devices that are in compliance with the AWS security regulations. These regulations state that a device must use mutual authentication with a remote server to be authorized on the AWS cloud.

Meanwhile, a robust authentication must also ensure a complete isolation of the system credentials such as private keys from the application core to avoid leaving backdoors opened to software loop holes. In addition, the software is as secure as the user's skillset is in security. Human users and software can often be one of the easiest targets for a hacker as they are the least reliable elements. Incorporating Microchip pre-configured ATECC508-MAHAW or ATECC508ASSHAW CryptoAuthentication devices into a system is a very secure method to connect to the AWS IoT service. It leaves the whole handling of certificate and private key manipulation to Microchip secure provisioning factories in addition to keeping crendentials away from software and users.

The ATECC508A and ATECC608A devices in the kit are generic devices. Starting with the upgraded Zero Touch Provisioning Kit for AWS IoT Version B and benefit from the new configuration and provisioning scripts (Python based) and AWS IoT account configuration scripts (using Cloudformation).

This version B of the kit comes with an easier onboarding process to generate certificates and provision them into the CryptoAuthentication device using Python scripts. In addition, the user will have access to a CloudFormation script to generate a web UI reflecting the I/O of the kit and utilize it as a foundation to develop virtually any sensor based use cases. In addition to the ATECC508A and ATECC608A devices, the kit includes a Cortex-M4 ATSAMG55 and Wi-Fi ATWINC1500 using FreeRTOS and the ATWINC1500 integrated TLS stack.

Please Note: The previous version of this kit (Rev 2) Only supported the ATECC508A and came with a preconfigured version of this device.
