Here at Electronic Specifier we have teamed up with Microchip to give our readers the chance to win a Microchip PIC-IoT WA Development Board (EV54Y39A) and if you don’t win, you can still receive a 20% off voucher, plus free shipping for one of these boards.

The PIC-IoT WA Development Board combines a powerful PIC24FJ128GA705 MCU, an ATECC608A CryptoAuthentication secure element IC and the fully-certified ATWINC1510 WiFi network controller which provides the most simple and effective way to connect your embedded application to Amazon Web Services (AWS). The board also includes an on-board debugger and requires no external hardware to program and debug the MCU.

Out of the box, the MCU comes preloaded with firmware that enables you to quickly connect and send data to the AWS platform using the on-board temperature and light sensors. Once you are ready to build your own custom design, you can easily generate code using the free software libraries in MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC).

The board is supported by MPLAB X IDE and features the following elements:

  • The on-board debugger (PKOB nano) supplies full programming and debugging support through MPLAB X IDE. It also provides access to a serial port interface (serial to USB bridge) and one logic analyser channel (debug GPIO).
  • The on-board debugger enumerates on the PC as a mass storage interface device for easy ‘drag and drop’ programming, WiFi configuration, and full access to the microcontroller application Command Line Interface (CLI).
  • A mikroBUS socket allows for the ability to expand the board capabilities with the selection from over 450 sensors and actuators options.
  • A light sensor used to demonstrate published data.
  • Microchip MCP9808 high accuracy temperature sensor used to demonstrate published data and MCP73871 Li-Ion/LiPo battery charger with power path management.
