Development board supports all Microchip PIC microcontrollers
MikroElektronika in Serbia has launched a development board that supports all Microchip microcontrollers via its SiBrain modules.
The Fusion for PIC v8 board has been redesigned from the ground up to provide universal support for PIC, dsPIC, PIC24, PIC32 microcontrollers for rapid prototyping using the SiBrain sockets. Five mikroBUS ‘Click’ peripheral board sockets are also positioned on the development board, enabling users to try out more than 1000 different peripherals. Display board standard sockets also feature, providing a choice of four different sizes of TFT capacitive and resistive touch displays.
The board also integrates the Codegrip tool for debugging over Wi-Fi. The on-board Codegrip USB-C debugger and programmer currently supports more than 1640 microcontrollers, and enables development in hazardous environments, or remote and inaccessible sites.
“To save time for embedded engineers, MikroE has created a variety of Fusion development boards for different microcontroller architectures so that developers can choose the product that is the perfect match for their design,” said Nebojsa Matic, CEO of MikroE. “Fusion for PIC v8 supports Microchip’s entire PIC MCU product range. Set-up and tuning are simple and intuitive, and boards are engineered to deliver an immersive project development experience that empowers designers to deliver outstanding results in the minimum time.”
The boards also include a power supply module that has been carefully designed to regulate, filter, and distribute power noise-free. A wide range of power sources are supported. Boards come with free, lifetime updates with new microcontrollers.
