Product Features

    Includes the PIC32MZ DA Graphics MCU

    • 200MHz MIPS Core
    • 24-bit Graphics Controller
    • 2D Graphics Processor
    • 32MB DDR2 DRAM

    Latest PKoB for faster debugging and programming

    • DGI support

    Graphics adaptor

    2 x32 header for audio I/O using Microchip audio daughter boards

    Ethernet PHY daughter board header

    Host mode power jumper

    Multiple power source option (via jumper)

    • USB (Primary supply) with USB Micro-B Bemale connector
    • 9V adapter power supply connector footprint
    • External 3.3V / 5V regulated DC power supply connectable directly to the pads
    • Power indicator LED with voltage / GND line access points for debugging
    • Dual Power option with 3.3V and 5V to be supported (5V required for Click Board daughter cards, while PIC32MX will only have 3.3V variant)

    4 User Switches

    • One push button switches for user-defined inputs with access points given for debugging
    • 1 Reset Switch

    1 RGB LEDs , 3 Regular LED’s

    • User-defined RGB LEDs which may be used for indication purpose

    Extremely compact form factor (10cm X 5cm or lesser). The form factor must resemble in shape, color, look and feel of MCU 8/16 Curiosity board

    Easy access to MCU I/O – use 100 mill header holes to extract all MCU IO’s with female connectors populated

    Updated SNAP Board Programmer Debugger

    • PICkit On Board (no external programmer/debugger needed)
    • USB enabled debugger and programming interface using PIC24FJ256GB106 device, so that no external components are required for development
    • Through holes to support ICSP if customer chooses to use real ICE/ICD tools

    Arduino header

    Real Time Clock/Calendar 32.768kHz crystal

    Provision for two MikroElektronika mikroBUS™ Expansion connectors

    • Footprint for 2 of the mikroBUS™ Click™ board
      • Access points of all Click board pins to be available next to female connectors
      • Unpopulated host connector for over 90 “Click™” compact add-on cards (plug-and-play) : http://www.mikroe.com/click/
    • Three groups of communication pins: SPI, UART and I2C communication with single pins for PWM, Interrupt, Analog input, Reset and Chip Select
    • Dual power design which supports 3.3V and 5V

     

Summary

This low-cost Curiosity Development platform puts the PIC32MZ DA Graphics Microcontroller on a flexible, accessible development platform. The perfect meld of performance and flexibility, The PIC32MZ DA Curiosity Development Board (EV87D54A) includes an integrated graphics adaptor for interfacing the the microcontroller's built-in multi-layer graphics controller and 2d graphics processor. Also included are an integrated programmer and debugger, which requires no additional hardware to get started. Users can expand functionality through MikroElectronika mikroBUS™ Click™ adapter boards, add Ethernet connectivity with the Microchip PHY Daughter Board, add Wi-Fi™ connectivity capability using the Microchip expansions.
