dsPIC30F4011 Microcontroller Board

dsPIC30F4011 Microcontroller Board
Our new dsPIC30F4011 microcontroller board is now available, this great inexpensive compact controller is ideal for motor controller applications. Utilising the powerful, high-performance Microchip dsPIC30F4011 microcontroller, this microcontroller features a high speed core optimized to perform complex calculations quickly. The microcontroller includes a large 48kB internal flash memory and a wide range of timers together with a number of PWM modules for adjustable motor speed control.

The dsPIC30F4011 Microcontroller also includes a 9-channel 10-bit A/D convertor with fast response time together with support for SPI and I²C communciation. In-circuit programming is available for both the PIC Programmer as well as the Microchip ICD2 unit. Programs can also checked and debugged with the Microchip In-Circuit Debugging tool, the ICD2. The microcontroller also includes RS232 support, for direct connection and data transfer with a laptop or computer.

The dsPIC30F4011 microcontroller board also includes a large number of general I/O points with standard header connections for easy connection to external devices. All the necessary support components are included on the board, together with a Power and Programming LED's for easy status indication. A reset switch and prog/run switch is provided, with a LCD connection provided for standard character LCD's, together with contrast adjustment for easy set-up.

Our new dsPIC30F4011 microcontroller is the ideal solution for use with robots and other motor control applications where high speed calculations are required together with the necessary motor control support. The small compact size together with a light weight makes it ideal for mounting on robots and autonomous remote control vehicles.
