Curiosity Development Board Platform

Microchip presents cost-effective, fully integrated microcontroller (MCU) development platforms

Image of Microchip Curiosity Development Board PlatformCuriosity is the perfect platform to harness the power of modern 8-, 16-, and 32-bit PIC® MCUs. Microchip’s Curiosity development boards are cost-effective, fully integrated MCU development platforms targeted at first-time users, makers, and those seeking a feature-rich rapid prototyping board. These boards include an integrated programmer/debugger and require no additional hardware to get started. The Curiosity platform is IoT ready out of the box and offers several user interface options including mTouch® capacitive sensing, on-board potentiometers, and physical switches. Security requirements in IoT designs are also addressed as select families of 16- and 32-bit PIC MCUs supported on Curiosity boards come equipped with an integrated hardware Cryptographic engine for data encryption/decryption and authentication. In addition, some members of the Curiosity family include Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® connectivity.

MikroElektronika offers hundreds of plug-and-play accessory boards using the mikroBUS™ interface that can be added to Curiosity boards to add additional functionality to designs, including wireless connectivity, sensors, display modules, interface modules, motor control, power management, human-machine interface (HMI), and audio/voice. A complete list of available MikroElektronika add-on boards are here. There are several Curiosity development boards to choose from, supporting 8-, 16-, and 32-bit PIC MCUs, all of them are compatible with MPLAB® X and MPLAB Xpress integrated development environments.


  • Various options support 8-, 16-, and 32-bit PIC microcontrollers
  • Integrated programmer/debugger with USB interface
  • Various user interface options: mTouch, user LEDs, RGB LEDs, analog potentiometers, and physical switches
  • Integrates seamlessly with MPLAB X IDE, MPLAB Xpress IDE, and Code Configurator
  • microBUS support with over 180 MikroElektronika Click™ add-on Click Boards™ available
