Two prototyping boards for 32-bit applications are now available from Microchip Technology Inc., a provider of micro-controller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions. The PIC32MX and PIC32MZ Curiosity Boards include an integrated programmer debugger and are fully integrated with Microchip’s MPLAB® X IDE and into PIC32’s powerful software framework, MPLAB® Harmony that provides flexible and modular interface to application development, a rich set of inter-operable software stack (TCP-IP, USB) and easy to use features.
The boards are designed for developing 32-bit applications and feature a range of peripherals as well as user interface and expansion options including two mikroBU click interface headers to support over 180 MikroElectronika Click Board. Both boards are designed to be connected and used right out-of-the box. Customers can run example projects without writing any code.
PIC32MZ EF Development Board features a 200 MHz PIC32 microcontroller (MCU) with an integrated Wi-Fi module and is ideal for designing Internet of Things (IoT) and connectivity applications. PIC32MX470 Development Board features a 120 MHz MCU and has been designed for audio, Bluetooth and other related generic applications. In addition, both the boards have USB connectors that can be used to develop USB Host or device applications.
The boards are fully integrated into Microchip's MPLAB X IDE as well as the award winning software development framework MPLAB Harmony. MPLAB Harmony is a flexible, modular, abstracted and fully integrated firmware development platform for PIC32 MCUs. It gives users access to a wide variety of peripheral libraries, RTOS capabilities, middleware, drivers and system services. In addition, it features over 200 pre-tested application project codes that can be used to jump start application development.

This new book is carefully designed to teach C language programming as it applies to embedded microcontrollers and to fuel knowledge in the application of the Microchip family of PIC microcontrollers. Coverage begins with a step-by-step exploration of the C language showing readers how to create C language programs to solve problems. PIC processors are then studied, from basic architecture to all of the standard peripheral devices included in the microcontrollers. Numerous worked-out example programs demonstrate common uses for each of the peripherals. Readers are subsequently introduced to the built-in functions available in C, to help speed their programming and problem solving. Finally, readers are taken through use of the C Compiler, and learn to efficiently develop custom projects. => More Information...
