Curiosity Development Kit Board




Satisfy Your Curiosity

Your next embedded design idea has a new home. Curiosity is a cost-effective, fully integrated 8-bit development platform targeted at first-time users, Makers, and those seeking a feature-rich rapid prototyping board. Designed from the ground-up to take full advantage of Microchip’s MPLAB X development environment, Curiosity includes an integrated programmer/debugger, and requires no additional hardware to get started.

Your Tool for Function Enablement

Curiosity is the perfect platform to harness the power of modern 8-bit PIC® Microcontrollers. Its layout and external connections offer unparalleled access to the Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) available on many newer 8-bit PIC MCUs. These CIPs enable the user to integrate various system functions onto a single MCU, simplifying the design and keeping system power consumption and BOM cost low.Curiosity Development Kit Board

Internet of Things Ready

Have an IoT design idea? Curiosity can make it real. Out of the box, the development board offers several options for user interface – including physical switches, an mTouch™ capacitive button, and an on-board potentiometer. A full complement of accessory boards is available via the MikroElectronika Mikrobus™ interface footprint. In addition, Bluetooth Low Energy communication can easily be added using an available Microchip RN4020 module.
