The Curiosity PIC32 MZ EF Development Board is a fully integrated 32-bit development platform featuring the high performance PIC32MZ EF Series (PIC32MZ2048EFM) that has a 2MB Flash, 512KB RAM, integrated FPU, Crypto accelerator and excellent connectivity options.
The Curiosity Development Board includes an integrated programmer/debugger ,an on board Wi-Fi-N module MRF24WN0MA-I/RM100 and is fully integrated with Microchip’s MPLAB X IDE.
Each board provides two MikroBus expansion sockets from MicroElektronika and a Microchip X32 header to enable customers seeking accelerated application prototype development. Boards are fully integrated into PIC32’s powerful software framework, MPLAB Harmony that a provides flexible and modular interface to application development , a rich set of inter-operable software stack (TCP-IP,USB) and easy to use features.
X32 Boards compatible with Curiosity Board are: PIC32 Audio Codec Daughter Card - AK4642EN (AC320100)
The boards and ecosystem have been designed to provide an excellent out of the box experience. Customers would be able to download and run example applications /projects instantly on the boards without the need to install the entire ecosystem. The demos have been developed to showcase PIC32 MCU features and application development ecosystem.
The board offers expansion capabilities making it an excellent choice for a rapid prototyping board in Connectivity, IOT and general purpose applications.
