The PIC24FJ128GB204 PIM is designed to demonstrate the capabilities of the PIC24FJ128GB204 family using the Explorer 16 Demonstration Board kit and the PICtail™ Plus daughter boards. The PIC24FJ128GB204 is a 44-pin device with USB On-The-Go (OTG), XLP Technology and Peripheral Pin Select (PPS) features. The PPS feature of this PIC24F family allows many of the digital peripherals on the part to be remapped to use any of a number of pins on the device. This allows for significant improvements in ease of design and helps to reduce cost by allowing for the smallest possible size devices to be used.
Due to the flexibility allowed by the PPS feature, the 44-pin device is capable of performing all of the base functions on the 100-pin Explorer 16 board. In addition, the PIM is compatible with most of the PICtail Plus daughter boards for the Explorer 16, including the USB PICtail Plus Daughter Board (AC164131)
