Win a starter kit for 16-bit PIC MCUs

14 October 2015 News

The MPLAB Starter Kit for PIC24F (DM240015) Intelligent Integrated Analog is a comprehensive solution featuring the PIC24F ‘GC’ family of 16-bit microcontrollers (MCU).

This family features advanced integrated analog which reduces bill-of-materials cost, lowers noise and ensures fast throughput.

The board demonstrates these features of the PIC24FJ128GC010: direct LCD drive, 16-bit sigma-delta analog-to-digital converter (ADC), 12-bit pipeline ADC, 10-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC), op-amps, CTMU, DMA, USB and XLP low power consumption.

The demonstration code covers LCD display including scrolling text with icons, sine wave audio output, light sensor, temperature

sensor, resistive sensor, watch crystal-based time display, mTouch user input control with visual feedback, bar graph display of sensor and microphone input, and data-logging of 16-bit ADC data to USB drive.

The board features an analog connector designed to insert into a breadboard for easy access to analog peripherals, and an expansion area for adding RF connectivity. It also has an analog header, allowing clean analog signals to be accessed and preserving signal integrity. To complement the header, the board also features onboard sensors such as a light sensor, potentiometer, microphone, temperature and capacitive touch.

Additional features include USB host and device support, RF expandability, audio output via headphone jack, and onboard debugger/programmer.

For a chance to win one of these starter kits, log onto and enter your details into the online entry form.
