The Curiosity Low Pin Count 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. Curiosity includes an integrated programmer/debugger, and requires no additional hardware to get started. It supports all low-voltage, programming-enabled 8-bit PIC® MCUs from 8 to 20 pins.
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.
On-board the Curiosity features a MikroElektronika mikroBUS™ socket that makes adding extra functionality effortless. Simply add-on one of the numerous MikroElektronika Click™ accessory boards to explore a wide range of different applications and technologies, options range from WiFi, Bluetooth, and GSM to relays, motor drivers, and sensors. Adding Bluetooth communications is easily achieved with the installation of the Microchip RN4020 Bluetooth Low Energy Bluetooth module. Interface devices are also provided; the board is pre-populated with physical switches, an mTouch™ capacitive button and an on-board potentiometer.
