MPLAB® Xpress PIC16F18446
Evaluation Board

Xpress Your Creativity

Brilliant ideas are fleeting. As soon as they are recognized, they must be captured quickly, and made real with the highest possible urgency. In embedded design, the creative process is often blunted by the massive array of choices required to simply begin the development cycle. The tasks of selecting a target MCU, finding the appropriate tool chain, and setting everything up on your PC can keep your best ideas from becoming great products. The MPLAB Xpress PIC16F18446 Evaluation Board was designed with a single objective – to help your ideas take the shortest journey from imagination to reality.

Crafted for Cloud-Based Development

The MPLAB Xpress PIC16F18446 Evaluation board offers seamless integration with our software tool chain, including the MPLAB Xpress cloud-based IDE. MPLAB Xpress is an online development environment that contains the most popular features of our award-winning MPLAB X IDE. This simplified & distilled application is a faithful reproduction of our desktop-based program, which allows users to easily transition between the two environments.

On-Board Application Processor

The 20- pin PIC16F18446 MCU is the centerpiece of this MPLAB Xpress board. The product family features a high level of core independent peripherals that can be combined to perform a wide variety of functions without the core. The integration of the peripherals, allow for interconnections that bring a new level of interaction between peripherals enabling unsurpassed flexibility in creating functions for a wide range of applications including consumer electronics, Internet of Things (IoT) and wearable technology applications. These products also include power conserving functionality, including Idle/Doze operating modes and Peripheral Module Disable (PMD) in addition to XLP low-power technology.

Drag-and-Drop Programming

Programming the MPLAB Xpress PIC16F18446 Evaluation Board is quick and easy. We've integrated a unique drag-and-drop programmer for compatibility with almost any USB-connected PC, laptop, or tablet. The MPLAB Xpress Evaluation board connects to your PC as a USB Flash drive, so no drivers are needed. Programming of the target device is completed in microseconds, with no waiting.  The evaluation board makes it quick and easy to build a working prototype in a short period of time.
