The 32-bit Multimedia Board from mikroElektronika is a compact, all inclusive development board for complete, high quality multimedia development. The board comes packaged with printed user manuals and schematics and a CD full of example projects that are easy to use, and really show the power of the PIC32. The 17+ MB of included code examples are written using Microchip’s software stacks, making them easy to port with few modifications. The board has enough power to stream 16-bit color video at 15 frames per second, from an SD Card.
The board contains a 320x240 Touch Screen Panel, 4-way joystick, Microchip’s MCP9700A Temperature Sensor, optional MRF24J40MA ZigBee Module, headphone and microphone connectors, RS-232 port, and prototyping pins. The back side reveals the brains of the board – a PIC32MX460F512L device. The back side also includes USB Host and Device connectors, M25P80 Flash device, a 24LC01 Serial EEPROM, External ICD Connector, SD Card Slot, Stereo Codec chip with integrated Headphone driver, and a digital accelerometer. It can be powered by USB or by a user-supplied AC or DC power supply.
What’s On Board
There are headphone and microphone connectors on-board for audio testing.
Host and Device USB Connectors are available for USB device developing needs.
On-board MMC(SD) card slot is used testing mass storage and data acquisition applications.
There is a reset circuit that is connected to the MCLR Pin of the microcontroller.
PIC32MX460F512L is the 32-bit microcontroller powering the development board.
