Processor Plug-In Modules are small circuit boards to be used with the various Microchip Development Boards to evaluate various MCU families. These plug into the main processor socket of the Development Boards so that different microcontrollers can be used for prototyping, demonstration or development --quickly and easily.
The capabilities of PIC32MX1/2 XLP family of devices can be demonstrated with the PIC32MX274F256 PIM using Explorer 16 development board. It enables USB and demonstrates the low power sleep and deep sleep features of the PIC32MX XLP series.
It is code compatible with existing PIC32MX projects.
