The Explorer 16/32 Development Kit is a flexible, convenient and ready to start development, demonstration and testing platform for 16-bit PIC24 MCUs, dsPIC® DSCs and 32-bit PIC32 MCUs from Microchip Technology. It features all the necessary hardware to begin developing and debugging a complete embedded application. The board accepts Processor Plug-In Modules (PIM) designed for the Explorer 16 or Explorer 16/32 development board for easy device swapping. In addition to the hardware features provided by the board, hardware expansion is possible through the use of PICtail™ Plus daughter cards and mikroBUS™ accessory boards. Coupled with the integrated PICkit™-On-Board (PKOB), MPLAB ICD 3 In-Circuit Debugger or MPLAB REAL ICE™ real-time emulation and debug facilities enable faster evaluation and prototyping of application.
The development kit comes with Explorer 16/32 main development board, PIC24FJ1024GB610 PIM (MA240023), USB A to micro-B cable, and USB A to Type-C Cable. For out of the box experience, Explorer 16/32 Development Kit is the right choice that comes with all the necessary components to get started with the evaluation and prototyping right away!
Explorer 16/32 Development Board is completely backwards compatible with the Classic Explorer 16 Development Board (DM240001 and DM240002) and its associated ecosystem that include:
- Process or Plug-In Modules (PIMs)
- PICtail Plus Daughter Boards
- Code Examples, Prototypes and Software Libraries developed on Classic Explorer 16 Development Board
Use all of existing codes, libraries, prototypes, PIMs and the PICtail Plus daughter cards interfaced via side PICtail Plus connector directly. Re-use the PICtail Plus daughter cards interfaced via vertical PICtail Plus connector using additional PICtail Plus Expansion Board (AC240100)
