Flexible Microstick II Tool Features Integrated Programmer and Debugger; Enables Designers to Quickly Start Development
Microchip Technology Inc. announced the lowest-cost development tool supporting 3.3V 16-bit and 32-bit PIC microcontrollers (MCUs), as well as 16-bit dsPIC Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) in 28-pin SPDIP packages. The flexible Microstick II tool features everything designers need to get started designing with these MCUs and DSCs, including an integrated debugger and programmer, user LED, reset button, and DUT socket for easy device swapping. The USB-powered tool can be used standalone or plugged into a prototyping board for extremely flexible development, and is supported by the MPLAB® Integrated Development Environment (IDE). This tool makes it easy to evaluate and develop with Microchip’s broad range of 16- and 32-bit products, enabling developers to find the best MCU or DSC for their applications.
“With this tool, we’ve made it even easier and lower cost to start developing with 16- and 32-bit PIC MCUs, and 16-bit DSCs,” said Sumit Mitra, vice president of Microchip’s High-Performance Microcontroller Division. “Additionally, customers can easily plug the Microstick II tool into a standard prototyping board for expansion and further development.”
Pricing & Availability
The Microstick II tool (part # DM330013-2, $34.95) ships with a USB cable, two 1x14 header pins for proto board use, sample MCUs, and sample DSCs. It can be purchased today.
