Microchip dsPIC33CH Curiosity Development Board

Microchip’s dsPIC33CH Curiosity Development Board is a cost-effective platform to demonstrate the benefits of the dual independent cores in the dsPIC33CH family, which is optimized for high-performance digital power, motor control, and other high-end embedded applications.

dsPIC33CH Board Features: 

  • Dual dsPIC® Digital Signal Controller Cores
  • Designed for seamless integration after separately developing code for each core
  • CAN-FD for robust communication with increased bandwidth
  • High-speed ADCs, DACs with waveform generation, analog comparators and PGAs for increased functionality in less space
  • On-board SMPS test circuit and transient load generator
  • 2x mikroBUS™ interfaces, I/O headers, general purpose prototyping area for hardware expansion

The dsPIC33CH cores operate in a master-slave configuration and are designed to enable development teams to work separately and integrate seamlessly. Each core has independent memories and peripheral sets, including CAN-FD and extensive analog integration.

The core independence allows the slave to execute time-critical tasks, while the master handles system level functions and the UI. The board also includes a PICkit™ on-board programmer/debugger and integrates with Microchip’s MPLAB® X IDE, making it easy to start developing.

It includes a configurable SMPS test circuit and transient load generator for digital power applications. Featuring two MikroElektronika mikroBUS™ interfaces enables quick, easy hardware expansion, while headers and a general-purpose prototyping area can be used for custom hardware.
