Development tools from 8051, PIC, AVR, to ARM, displays, peripherials and virtually all for a successful development can be found in the production portfolio of company Mikroelektronika.

On the beginning there was an idea to bring on the market a user friendly environment (SW and HW) for development of applications with microcontrollers. Success and a big interest for everything, what can make development easier induced a gradual enlargement of production portfolio of company Mikroelektronika. The result is, that today company Mikroelektronika belongs to the biggest producers of development boards for the most favorite platforms like PIC, dSPIC, PIC32, AVR, STM32, Tiva C, 8051. Mikroelektronika development tools are certified as „third party tools“ or „design partner“ by many world companies like Microchip, Atmel, Texas Instruments, STM, Cypress, NXP and other.

Very interesting on the Mikroelektronika products is a comprehensive portfolio is, what means that for a given platform we´ll find software (compiler for mikroC, mikroBasic and mikroPascal), programmer, various versions of development boards, display and various peripherials. It´s worth to mention, that there are really many add-on boards available, for example: GPS, GSM, audio&video, measuring, power-supply, communication, data storage, … Some products of company Mikroelektronika also support a new graphic platform FTDI EVE. A big value for development of graphic applications are SW VisualTFT-(MIKROE-1418) and GLCD.

In our stock offer can be found for example ConnectEVE (MIKROE-1429) board with a 4,3“ display, EVEclick (MIKROE-1430), GPSClick-L10 (MIKROE-1133) and many other.

MikroElektronika today announced that May 6, 2014 marks the 10th anniversary since it started developing compilers for Embedded programming – mikroC, mikroPascal and mikroBasic. The company will celebrate the occasion with a month long campaign that will include exclusive content, discounts and weekly full compiler license giveaways.

The successful release of mikroPascal for PIC in 2004 spawned an extensive product line that today has 18 compilers for six popular MCU architectures (ARM, PIC, dsPIC/PIC32, 8051 and AVR) that had a significant impact on the embedded electronics industry.

Here is a reference design of a pulse oximeter built around the dsPIC33 digital signal processor.

Pulse oximeter is a non-invasive medical device that monitors the oxygen saturation of a patient?s blood and heart rate. This application note demonstrates the implementation of a high-accuracy pulse oximeter using Microchip?s dsPIC® Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) and analog devices.

mikroProg™ for PIC®, dsPIC® and PIC32® website has been redesigned. They made it more elegant, clear and readable. They improved user manuals for the mikroProg™ itself, mikroICD™ and mikroProg Suite™ for PIC® software.

New mikroProg Suite™ for PIC® software v2.20 is officially released. It contains new mikroProg™ firmware upgrade v01.11.11.01 which brings us support for new enhanced family for PIC24® and dsPIC33® devices as well as approximately 4x increase in speed of programming PIC32® microcontrollers. You can get more information about the upgrade in the newly uploaded Firmware Upgrade Guide PDF document.

Microchip presents several of techniques for lowering the power consumption of their PIC microcontrollers and dsPIC digital signal processors. Many things can apply to any low-power project. [via]

This document seeks to simplify the transition to low-power applications by providing a  single location for the foundations of low-power design for embedded systems. The  examples discussed in this document will focus on power consumption from the  viewpoint  of the microcontroller (MCU). As the brain of the application, the MCU  typically consumes the most power and has the most control over the system power  consumption.

element14, Microchip and Matrix introduce the new PIC18 Flowcode Developers Kit.  Lowers the barrier to electronics design with easy to use Graphical Programming 

30 January 2012 – London, element14, the first collaborative global electronics community from Premier Farnell plc (LSE:pfl), has teamed up with Microchip and Matrix to introduce the new PIC18 Flowcode Developers Kit.  This innovative development and demonstration kit is designed to offer a hands-on, easy approach to electronics design using Flowcode, one of the world’s most advanced graphical programming languages for microcontrollers.

The development platform is based on a Microchip PIC18F26J50 low power, 8-bit PIC18F26J50 microcontroller, and is integrated with temperature sensor, capacitor touch sensor and potentiometer to help developers verify programs designed using Flowcode.

“The new PIC18 Flowcode Developers Kit is an innovative, fully featured yet low cost solution designed to help developers realize their designs in working hardware,” says Mike Powell, Technology Development Manager, Premier Farnell.  “Optimized for Flowcode development, the board has several expansion options, it can be used as a black box and is mounted with a PIC 18 device that is low power, but high performance.

The competitive advantage of Flowcode is that it allows those with little-to-no programming experience to create electronic systems in minutes. Flowcode supports code generation for the PIC® (PIC12, PIC16, and PIC18 series ), PIC24 and dsPIC® series of microcontrollers. The professional edition includes drivers for a range of sub-systems including LCDs, keypads, seven-segment displays, ADC and PWM, as well as communication protocols including I2C, SPI, RS-232RS-232, Zigbee and TCP/IP, among others.

Flowcode is compatible with Microchip’s PICkit programmer as well as third party programmers. It is also compatible with the HI-TECH C compiler. A ‘Lite’ version of Flowcode 4 is included in the kit.

This is a bluetooth oscilloscope on the Android platform. There is a transmitter circuit that uses Microchip’s dsPIC33FJ16GS504 for the analog-to-digital conversion of the input signals on two channels. The processed data on the dsPIC are then transmitted to the phone via the LMX9838 bluetooth module to display the waveforms on screen. [via]

Specifications:

  • time per division: {5us, 10us, 20us, 50us, 100us, 200us, 500us, 1ms, 2ms, 5ms, 10ms, 20ms, 50ms }
  • volt per division: {10mV, 20mV, 50mV, 100mV, 200mV, 500mV, 1V, 2V, GND}
  • analog input (depends on external pre-amplifier configuration): {-8V to +8V }
