Microchip PIC18 Explorer Board

Microchip PIC18 Explorer BoardMicrochip PIC18 Explorer Board lets designers demonstrate, evaluate, and design applications featuring PIC18 microcontrollers. The board includes a PIC18F8722 MCU on-board and a PIC18F87J11 processor PIM (plug-in module). The board allows for easy migration within the PIC18 portfolio from 18 to 100 pins, up to 128KB Flash, and up to 16 MIPS performance with integrated peripherals, including CAN, Ethernet, USB, and LCD. The product is ideal as a complement to the MPLAB® ICD 2 debugger and programmer for a full-featured PIC18 development environment.

 Features
  • Multiple PIC18 processors, both a PIC18F8722 on board (128KB Flash, 80 pins, superset of traditional PIC18 family), and a PIC18F87J11 Plug-In Module (128KB Flash, 80-pins, superset of J-series, PIM adjusts to accommodate 3V device). A switch selects the desired processor. application in-system
  • Supports many other PIC18 J-series devices with Plug-In Modules, supporting 28 to 80-pin PIC18 devices via PIMs
  • PICtail ™ daughter board connector for connection to standard expansion boards such as Ethernet, speech playback, and the many different sensors
  • Expansion connector accesses full device pin-out and breadboard prototype area
  • Convenient connection for MPLAB ICD 2 (In-Circuit Debugger) or MPLAB REAL ICE for in-circuit programming and debugging
  • Alpha-numeric LCD display
  • USB interface for USB to RS-232 communication
  • 25LC256 SPI EEPROM
  • Crystal oscillator
  • Potentiometer (connected to 10-bit A/D, analog input channel)
  • Analog output temperature sensor
  • LEDs
  • RS-232 port
  • Power supply connector and programmable voltage regulator, capable of operation from 2.0V to 5.5V (requires any standard 9-12V power supply, available separately)
  • Demo software including temperature sensor demo included (illustrates Microchip's analog temperature sensor MPC9701A) and 32 kHz crystal for Real Time Clock demonstration
