The mikromedia for dsPIC33EP is a compact development system with lots of on-board peripherals which allow development of hand-held devices with multimedia content. The central part of the system is the 16-bit Microchip dsPIC33EP512MU810 microcontroller. The mikromedia for dsPIC33EP features integrated modules such as stereo MP3 codec, TFT 320×240 touch screen display, accelerometer, USB connector, audio connector, MMC/SD card slot, 8 Mbit Flash memory, and more. The board features a front-facing reset button, battery charger circuit for Li-Polymer batteries, crystal oscillator, and connection pads for all other available pins.
A color user manual is included, and code examples are available to download. The board comes pre-programmed with a USB bootloader, so you won't have to spend a penny more on external programmers. If you do want to, pins pads are available for using a mikroProg for PIC or ICD2/3 (with adapter).
The board measures 81.2 × 60.5 mm (3.19 × 2.38 inches). All unused microcontroller pins are available via pads along the sides of the board. These allow you to add on mikromedia shields (see options below), or to add this board to the mikromedia WorkStation.
