The DM330028-2 Curiosity development board from Microchip Technology is a cost-effective, fully integrated 16-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 IDE and MPLAB Xpress Cloud-based IDE, the board includes an integrated programmer/debugger and requires no additional hardware, making it a perfect starting point to explore dsPIC33CH dual core family.
System developers designing high-end embedded control applications with multiple software teams can benefit from a new family with two dsPIC® DSC cores in a single chip enabling easier software integration. The dsPIC33CH has one core that is a master, while the other is a slave. The slave core is for executing dedicated, time-critical control code while the master core is busy running the user interface, system monitoring, and communications functions customized for the end application. The board is designed to facilitate independent code development for each core by separate design teams while enabling seamless integration when they are later brought together in one chip. It is optimized for high-performance digital power, motor control, and other applications requiring sophisticated algorithms. This includes applications such as wireless power, server power supplies, drones, and automotive sensors.
