The cost-effective Curiosity Nano Development Platform features a variety of PIC® and SAM, 32-bit Arm® Cortex® core-based microcontrollers, allowing you to easily explore different architectures for your 32-bit embedded design. Operate in an all-in-one development platform or customize them to suit your individual application needs.

The 32-bit MCU-based Curiosity Nano Evaluation Kits can be scaled using Curiosity Nano Base for Click boards™ thus allowing you to create a development environment that can take your project from exploration to working prototype on a single platform. On-board debug and program capability removes the need for an external programmer, thus reducing development cost.

  • 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.
