Remote access development board supports multiple MCUs and peripherals
MikroElektronika (MikroE) has launched its eights generation universal development board supporting multiple microcontrollers and remote access.
The UNI-DS v8 development board includes a SiBrain socket that enables designers to try out different MCUs in a prototype system without having to invest in other expensive hardware or learn new tools. The SiBrain specification from MikroE currently supports over 3300 microcontroller variants, including the STM32, Kinetis, TIVA, CEC, MSP, PIC, dsPIC, PIC32, and AVR families. Over 100 SiBrain add-on boards are currently available in MikroE’s online store.
UNI-DS v8 has five mikroBUS sockets for Click board peripherals. These add-on boards save developers time, eliminating the need for the testing and troubleshooting which is often associated with the prototyping phase. They cover functions including mixed-signal, wireless connectivity, storage, interface, displays, human-machine interface, adapter, clock and timing, motor control, power management, and audio & voice. New Click boards are added almost every day and the number of combinations of functions that are possible almost limitless.
The development system also integrates CODEGRIP, a programmer and debugger that works over Wi-Fi. This means that designers can place a UNI-DS v8 development board almost anywhere, including difficult-to-access sites such as hazardous environments, agricultural settings, and high-rise buildings while still retaining full debugging and programming access. CODEGRIP supports more than 3300+ microcontrollers from different vendors, and free updates are provided as new microcontrollers and vendors are added.
“We were then the first company to make a universal development board back in 2002. Now it is very powerful with universal display and touchscreen interfaces and a high-quality power supply, as well as the flexibility of MCU and peripheral choice afforded by SiBRAIN and Click,” said Neb Matic, CEO at MikoE in Belgrade, Serbia. “But the ability to remote program and debug over Wi-Fi (USB connection is also possible) plus the integration with NECTO Studio, the world’s first MCU vendor-independent IDE, means that prototyping has never been easier, no matter where you are or what level of resource you have.”
