PIC32 Plug In Module

Product ImageProcessor Plug-In Modules are small circuit boards to be used with the various Microchip Development Boards to evaluate Microchip microcontrollers and dsPIC devices. These plug into the main processor socket of the Development Boards so that different microcontrollers can be used for prototyping, demonstration or development – quickly and easily. Microchip development tools such as the MPLAB© REAL ICE™ and MPLAB ICD 2 connect directly to these development boards and provide quick, full-featured hardware/software/firmware development environment using the free MPLAB Integrated Development Environment software.

This Plug-in Module enables USB development using a PIC32, Explorer 16 development board that requires a USB PICtail+ (AC164131) for connecting the USB hardware. An 80 MHz PIC32MX460F512L with 512 KB of Flash, 32 KB of RAM, USB On-The-Go controller, 4 channels of hardware DMA and instruction trace are installed on the plug-in module. This module supports the MPLAB REAL ICE Trace Kit (AC244006). Expected availability is April 23, 2008.
