dsPIC Dev Board

Hi guys, recently I have been working with the dsPICs with some basics application like motors control or like get the image from simple CMOS camera, these are great devices! Would be great make a development board with one of these dsPICs.

Some ideas:
- dsPIC33 Series
- TQFP 100 o 64
- 12MHz o 16MHz Clock
- 32768Khz Clock (for RTC)
- USB Powered
- FT232 to connect with the PC and update the firmware using a boot-loader
- SMT 0805
- Connections for audio applications?

Any sugestion will be received

there is the tqfp-100 board we are designing... IT suports dsPICs in TQFP-100 packages.
It has a USB connected for those DSPICs that have USB. There is a RTC crystal as well... I think all the components are 0805.. But it was designed as a breakout, so it might not meet your needs. I have a dsPIC33EJ512MU810 on it right now. Here is the forum thread.
best regards FIlip.

I thought in a board like the PICqueƱo DIP, easy to connect in a breadboard. The tqfp-100 board are great, but is dificult to connect in the breadboard by the two pins row. The dsPIC is the dsPIC33EP512MU810?

you could try the UBW 32 board Its designed for the pic32 but I think its compatable with pic24s and pdspic33s...
best regards FIlip.

I looked the UBW32 web page, and the PIC32 pin-out is compatible with the dsPIC33EP512MU810. Maybe I can make some modifications to the UBW32 design.

PD: Your TQFP 100 Breakout is great, I will try to get one board from the PCB drawer or buy when available.

Thanks arakis!
