Microchip dsPIC33CH Curiosity Development Board

Microchip Technology’s dsPIC33CH Curiosity Development Board is a flexible platform for developing with Microchip’s dsPIC33CH family of dual-core digital signal controllers. The Curiosity Board has a PICkit™-On-Board programmer and debugger and integrates seamlessly with Microchip MPLAB X IDE and MPLAB Xpress Cloud-based IDE.

Users can add hardware using two mikroBUS interfaces, the headers that provide access to all GPIO pins, or a general purpose prototyping area. The board includes a configurable SMPS test circuit and a configurable load step transient generator for power supply development.

The dual cores of the dsPIC33CH operate in a master-slave configuration with integrated high-performance ADCs and high-speed PWMs. The DSCs and the dsPIC33CH Curiosity Board are optimized for digital power, motor control, and high performance embedded applications.
