The dsPICDEM™ 2 Development Board is a development and evaluation tool that helps create embedded applications using dsPIC30F Digital Signal Controllers. Sockets are provided for 28 and 40-pin devices in the motor control family and 18, 28 and 40-pin devices in the general purpose and sensor family. The board includes a sample dsPIC30F4011 Digital Signal Controller in the 40-pin motor control socket, a power supply regulator, crystal oscillators for each set of sockets, an ICD connector for the MPLAB® ICD 2 In-Circuit Debugger and both RS-232 and CAN ports for external communication. In addition, the board is populated with prototyping hardware, including LED indicators, push button switches, a potentiometer, a temperature sensor and a 2x16 LCD screen. All pins on all the devices are accessible through headers.
Key features of the dsPICDEM 2 Development Kit include:
Multiple sockets for 18, 28 and 40-pin PDIP and SPDIP devices
Sample application programs complete with MPLAB IDE workspace and project files provided for supported dsPIC30F devices
