Curiosity Development Board
Quick Start Guide
Overview
The Curiosity Development Board layout and schematic can be found on the Microchip
web site:
www.microchip.com/curiosity
This board provides flexibility for experimentation through an application header with
ground (GND) and supply voltage (VDD) connections. It also includes a set of indication
LEDs, mTouch® button and push-button switches, and a variable potentiometer.
Additionally, it features a Bluetooth module footprint and a mikroBUS™ header to
accommodate a variety of plug-in Click™ Boards that can be used in application
development. Curiosity is fully compatable with MPLAB® Code Configurator and
MPLAB X v3.05 or later.
Board Power-Up
Power is supplied by the USB connector (J2) on the back of the board.
Demonstration Program
After applying power to the Curiosity Development Board via the USB connector J2 on
the backside of the board, LED (D7) will automatically turn on. Turn POT1 clockwise to
increase the brightness of the LED (D7) and counterclockwise to decrease its
brightness. Press the push button (S1) to turn on LED (D4) and touch the mTouch
button (S3) to turn on LED D6.
Board Layout
The Curiosity Development Board is shown in Figure 1. A PIC16F1619 20-pin
microcontroller is populated in the center of the demo board next to the identification
label U4. The Curiosity Development Board can also accommodate 14- and 8-pin, 8-bit
microcontrollers in the same socket (U4). The PIC16F1619 is initially connected to the
following components:
Push Button (S1)
Potentiometer (POT1)
Master Clear Reset Button (S2)
mTouch Button (S3)
LEDs (D4 – D7)
mikroBUS Header (J35, not populated)
RN4020 Bluetooth
Module
Footprint (U6, not populated)
The board is flexible and allows individual experiments. A power and ground header
(J7), as well as isolation headers (J39, J40, J3 – J6 and J13) are provided to expand
the flexibility of the Curiosity Development Board.
Note: Low Voltage Programming (LVP) must be enabled in MPLAB X.
