Microchip dsPIC Development Base Board, FLEX Light US$15.00

Microchip dsPIC Development Base Board, FLEX Light

The FLEX Base Board is designed to export all the connections of a standard Microchip dsPIC Digital Signal Controller. The board connections use the standard 2.54mm pitch which makes it easy to use custom, home-made daughterboards. It has robust electronic design, modular architecture and full support of Erika Enterprise real-time kernel from Evidence Srl.

The board has two options for using on-board dsPIC Digital Signal Controllers: a dsPIC33FJ256MC710 DSC soldered on the board surface, and a socket for installing the controller using interchangeable Plug-In Modules (PIMs) available from Microchip. The latter option allows you to disregard any limitation on the number of programming cycles available during the implementation/test/debugging phases; a new PIM can be installed in the socket if there's any problem with the older one.

This FLEX Light Base Board has been designed to be as compact as possible. It uses simplified power supply circuitry and has no integrated USB programming capability. (More robust power circuitry and USB programming capability is available on the FLEX Full Base Board.)

Example uses for the FLEX Light Base Board are in distributed, battery-powered applications, like sensor networks and small robotic applications.

Power to the FLEX Light Base Board must be in the range of 9 - 12V.

Optional Daughterboards

FLEX is designed as a modular development system. You can add the peripheral functions you need by connecting the FLEX Multibus Daughterboard and adding any or all of the following modules:

By combining this FLEX dsPIC Base Board with the optional FLEX Daughterboard: 2x16 LCD, DAC, Temp & Light Sensors, UART, IR RX/TX, you can create a powerful and flexible dsPIC training solution.

Alternatively, you can create your own custom circuit on the FLEX Thru Hole Prototyping Daughterboard. One of these boards is included.
