Microchip’s PICDEM(TM) System Management Kit is a demonstration and training tool for individuals designing larger, computer-based systems. The PICDEM System Management board integrates common functions, such as a dedicated Real-Time Clock (RTC), serial EEPROM, thermal-management, Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) and power sequencing into a single PIC(R) microcontroller. Many complex, multifunction systems can benefit from a single PIC microcontroller programmed to perform these tasks.
The PICDEM System Management Kit also includes a PICkit(TM) Serial Analyzer, to demonstrate how the functions can be managed and monitored through a serial communications interface. The PICkit Serial Analyzer is a low-cost development tool that allows communication between a PC and the serial protocol of the system under test.
Available now, the PICDEM System Management Kit (Part # DM164123) is $110 and includes a PICDEM System Management demo board, PICkit Serial Analyzer, USB cable and instructional CDs. The kit can be ordered today.
