Featured Products


SSC7150 Motion Coprocessor (SSC7150-ML-AB0)

The SSC7150 motion coprocessor makes implementing motion monitoring easy. It is a low-power, turnkey solution with integrated sensor fusion and sensor calibration. The SSC7150 motion coprocessor helps speed designs to market and reduces the risk of launching motion applications for embedded and internet of things (IOT) applications.


MM7150 Motion Module (MM7150-AB0)

The MM7150 Motion Module is a complete, small form factor solution including accelerometer, magnetometer, and gyroscope sensors pre-programmed with integrated calibration and sensor fusion algorithms. With a few I2C and power and ground connections, applications can easily read raw, compensated and calibrated 3D motion and position data. The MM7150 Motion Module is single sided to be easily soldered down during manufacturing.


MM7150 Motion Module PICtail Evaluation Board (AC243007)

The MM7150 Motion Module PICtail™/PICtail Plus Evaluation Board allows customers to easily develop motion application using Microchip's 16- and 32-bit PIC® microcontrollers. The MM7150-PICTAIL combines motion sensors (accelerometer, magnetometer, and gyroscope) with a motion coprocessor with integrated sensor fusion. The MM7150-PICTAILallows engineers to speed designs to market and reduce the risk of launching motion based embedded and internet-of-things (IOT) applications


Explorer 16 Development Board (DM240001)

The Explorer 16 Development Board is a low-cost modular development system for Microchip's 16-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers. It supports devices from the PIC24 MCU, dsPIC® DSC and PIC32 MCU families. A variety of families are supported with processor Plug-In Modules (PIMs) for easy device swapping. The board includes a PICtail Plus daughter card connector for expansion boards including USB, CAN, Ethernet, wireless, graphics and many more. Coupled with the MPLAB® ICD 3 In Circuit Debugger or MPLAB REAL ICE™ In Circuit Emulator, real-time emulation and debug facilities speed evaluation and prototyping of application circuitry
