The Curiosity Development Board supports Microchip's 8-, 14- and 20-pin 8-bit PIC®MCUs. Dual-row expansion headers on either side of the socket offer flexibility of connectivity to all pins on the PIC MCUs. This board provides flexibility for experimentation through an application header with ground (GND) and supply voltage (VDD) connections. It also includes a set of indication LEDs, mTouch® button and push-button switches, and a variable potentiometer. Additionally, it features a Bluetooth® low-energy footprint and a mikroBUS™ footprint to accommodate a variety of plug-in Click™ Board sensors that can be used in application development.
