DM164144 Curiosity Nano Board

Microchip presents a low-cost evaluation board featuring the PIC16F18446 microcontroller (MCU)

Image of Microchip's DM164144 Curiosity Nano Board The DM164144 Curiosity Nano evaluation kit from Microchip Technology is a hardware platform used to evaluate the PIC16F18446 microcontroller (MCU). The Curiosity Nano series of evaluation kits includes an on-board debugger and no external tools are necessary to program the PIC16F18446 device. Supported by the MPLAB® X integrated development environment (IDE), the kit provides easy access to the features of the PIC16F18446 and explains how to integrate the device into a custom design.

The PIC16(L)F184xx 8-bit product family features high-resolution analog, core independent peripherals (CIPs), and communication along with eXtreme low-power (XLP) technology for a wide range of general purpose and low-power applications. The family offers a 12-bit ADC with computation (ADC2), multiple communications interfaces, and a temperature sensor, along with memory features like memory access partition (MAP) and device information area (DIA). The 12-bit ADC2 automates capacitive voltage divider (CVD) techniques for advanced touch sensing, averaging, filtering, oversampling, and automatic threshold comparison. The products also have highly effective power management features such as CPU IDLE/DOZE modes, peripheral module disable (PMD), and peripheral pin select (PPS).
