CHANDLER, Ariz., May 19, 2003 [NASDAQ: MCHP] — Microchip Technology Inc., a leader in providing microcontroller and analog semiconductors, today announced the low-cost PIC18FXX20 64/80L TQFP Demonstration Board, the Company’s first demonstration board designed for its high pin-count PIC18F Flash microcontrollers. Fully functional right out of the box, the tool demonstrates the digital and analog peripherals of the PIC18FXX20 microcontrollers and allows for rapid and easy prototyping without the need to design a printed circuit board to support the included PIC18F8720 Flash microcontroller.

Available today for $49 (US) through distribution, the PIC18FXX20 demonstration board offers digital features that include an RS232 Serial Port, ICD connection, 8 x LED for diagnostic tests, crystal clock circuit (RC option), and reset and user buttons. Analog features include potentiometer input to an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) input channel and a sample of Microchip’s TC74 temperature sensor. Outfitted with a PIC18F8720 Flash microcontroller, the demonstration board also complements Microchip’s MPLAB® In-Circuit Debugger (ICD) 2 tool.

Microchip’s MPLAB ICD 2 development tool is a powerful, low-cost run-time tool that offers cost-effective in-circuit Flash programming and debugging from the graphical user interface of the MPLAB Integrated Development Environment (IDE) tool. This enables a designer to develop and debug source code by watching variables, single-stepping and setting break points. Running at full speed enables testing hardware in real-time.

The PIC18FXX20 64/80L TQFP Demonstration Board (DM183020) is available now for $49. The MPLAB ICD 2 (DV164007) is available as a stand-alone unit for $188. Microchip’s MPLAB IDE software can be downloaded for free from Microchip web site.
