PE & Microchip dsPIC33EV 5V CAN-LIN Starter Kit

Win a Microchip dsPIC33EV 5V CAN-LIN Starter Kit (DM330018) from PE and if you don’t win, receive a 15% off coupon for this board, plus free shipping.

The dsPIC33EV 5V CAN-LIN starter Kit features the dsPIC33EV256GM106 Digital Signal Controller (DSC) for automotive and motor control applications. The Starter Kit contains serial data ports for CAN, LIN and SENT, a self-contained USB programming/debug interface, and an expansion footprint for flexibility in application hardware development.

This board allows users to explore three popular automotive and industrial serial data formats (CAN, LIN and SENT). The PICkitTM On-Board (PKOB) USB programmer and debugger allows simple programming without the need for an additional hardware interface. No other external tools are required to program the device.

Microchip’s dsPIC33EV family of digital signal controllers (DSCs) features a 5V 70 MIPS dsPIC® DSC core with enhanced on-chip features and is ideal for operating in harsh environments such as appliances, industrial and automotive applications.

The 5V dsPIC33EV family comes with rich peripheral integration which includes CAN, SENT, High Speed PWMs, OP Amps and Error Correcting Code Flash for increased reliability and safety. The dsPIC33EV family of devices enable the design of high-performance, precision motor control systems that are more energy efficient. They can be used to control BLDC, permanent magnet synchronous, AC induction and stepper motors. These devices are ideal for high-performance general purpose, Touch, advanced sensor interfacing and control applications in automotive, industrial, consumer and medical segments.

  • Using high-precision architectures enables superior DC performance, regardless of operating conditions
  • Low noise and additional EMI filtering on the inputs provide additional protection in electrically noisy environments
  • Small packages, such as leadless DFNs, are ideal for space-constrained designs
  • A wide operating temperature range of –40°C to +125°C provides a robust solution even at extreme temperatures

Microchip Instrumentation Amplifier with mCAL Technology

The MCP6N11 and MCP6V2x Wheatstone Bridge Reference Design demonstrates the performance of Microchip's MCP6N11 instrumentation amplifier (INA) and a traditional three op amp INA using Microchip's MCP6V26 and MCP6V27 auto-zeroed op amps. The input signal comes from an RTD temperature sensor in a Wheatstone bridge. Real world interference is added to the bridge's output, to provide realistic performance comparisons. Data is gathered and displayed on a PC, for ease of use. The USB PIC® microcontroller and included Graphical User Interface (GUI) provides the means to configure the board and collect sample data.
