Curiosity Nano Development Platform

Meet the Newest Addition to Your Design Team

Find out how easy it is to create a development environment to take your idea from concept to prototype. The customizable Curiosity Nano Development Platform includes cost-effective Curiosity Nano boards and the versatile Curiosity Nano Base for Click boards™ to provide you with an excellent starting point for creating innovative designs.

Curiosity Nano boards feature a variety of PIC® and AVR® microcontrollers (MCUs), allowing you to easily evaluate different architectures for your design. They also offer full programming and debugging capabilities to support you throughout your development process. Each Curiosity Nano board is compatible with the Curiosity Nano Base for Click boards. This base includes a socket that fits all Curiosity Nano boards plus three mikroBUS™ sockets that will enable you to effortlessly expand your design with sensors, connectivity modules and more.

As an incredibly adaptable toolset for taking your project from exploration to working prototype, the Curiosity Nano Development Platform will be a welcome addition to your design team.
