Win a Microchip PIC-BLE Development Board

Win a Microchip PIC-BLE Development Board (DT100112) from Softei and if you don’t win, receive a 20% off voucher, plus free shipping for one of these boards.

The PIC-BLE development board makes wireless applications development quick and easy. It combines an eXtreme Low Power (XLP) PIC16LF18456 microcontroller, an ATECC608A CryptoAuthentication™ secure element and the RN4870 Bluetooth Low Energy Module.

With the board USB interface it provides a convenient serial port (virtual UART), the simplicity of drag and drop programming, but also full programmer and debugger capabilities supported by an award-winning Integrated Development Environment (IDE) the Microchip MPLAB® X IDE.

Connect it to your Bluetooth LE capable mobile phone or tablet using the LightBlue® app to activate the exclusive graphical user interface and interact with all the board sensors.

The PIC-BLE Development Board is designed to demonstrate that the typical BLE application can be simplified and feature the following elements:

  • Smart, Secure and Connected – represented by the PIC16LF18456 microcontroller, ATECC608A secure element and RN4870 BLE module.
  • The on-board debugger (PKoB nano) supplies full programming and debugging support through Microchip. MPLAB® X IDE. It also provides access to a serial port interface (serial to USB bridge) and one logic analyzer channel (debug GPIO).
  • A mikroBUS™ socket enables the ability to expand the board capabilities with the selection from 450+ sensors and actuators options.
