Microchip development board up for grabs
19 July 2017, News

Win a Microchip PIC32MK1024GPE development board for motor control and general purpose applications.

Dataweek readers are offered the chance to win a Microchip PIC32MK1024GPE development board (DM320106), offering a low-cost solution for developers looking to build projects with the PIC32MK series of devices, featuring a rich assortment of CAN, USB, ADC and GPIO type inputs. This board also includes a Soloman Systec SSD1963 graphics driver and 30-pin connector to enable graphics applications with available LCD panels.

The PIC32MK devices have peripheral block support for MathWorks MATLAB and Simulink, as well as open-source-based Scilab for customers interested in numerical computation computing environments for engineering and scientific applications.

All GP devices feature a 120 MHz 32-bit core that supports digital signal processor (DSP) instructions. Additionally, to ease control algorithm development, a double-precision floating point unit is integrated into the MCU core enabling customers to utilise floating point-based modelling and simulation tools for code development.

Additional features include:

• Four CAN 2.0 ports with transceivers, two supporting DB9 type connectors.

• Dual full speed USB supporting simultaneous host and/or device, including a USB-C hardware compatible connector.

• Dual MikroBUS Click headers supporting the wide array of Click boards.

• An XC32 header for supporting Microchip add-on modules for audio and Bluetooth.

• 30-pin general I/O header for analog and digital signal connections.

• Support for USB programming and debug via the onboard PIC Kit On Board (PKOB), eliminating the need for external programming hardware.

For your chance to win a Microchip PIC32MK1024GPE development board, visit www.microchip-comps.com/data-32mkgp and enter your details in the online entry form.
