Kit Overview

 

The element14 presents Microchip Digital Power Supply BundleDigital Power Supply Bundle which provides an easy and economical development platform for Microchip Digital Power Conversion ‘GS’ family Digital Signal Controllers designed to provide low-cost and efficient control for a wide range of power supply topologies and power conversion applications. Switching to full digital control is where the power supply regulation function is directly controlled by the digital circuits on the processor and the software running on the processor.


The element14 Digital Power Supply Bundleelement14 Digital Power Supply Bundle is comprised of below three items and this bundle is available at HALF PRICE for the limited period of time:

  • DM300027DM300027: 16-bit, 28-pin Starter Development Board
  • AC164133AC164133: Buck/Boost Converter PICtail Plus Daughter Board
  • dsPIC33FJ16GS502-I/SPdsPIC33FJ16GS502-I/SP: 16-bit Digital Signal Controller


The full digital solution allows the designer to employ techniques that are not possible with an analog solution, including proprietary digital compensation algorithms and non-linear control techniques. The full digital solution enables a customized response to power input change or load change events, which can lower system cost and increase system efficiency.


The Buck/Boost board contains the power stages whilst the 28 Pin starter kit supports various 28 Pin dsPIC DSC. The sample devices fit into the 28 pin pdip socket on the Starter Kit . The two boards are connected via a 28 way header / socket. Users will need to provide power to the boards and will require a PICkit® 3PICkit® 3 to program code into the dsPIC® DSC.

This 16-bit, 28-pin Starter Development Board allows the user to easily validate a development tool setup using a 28P DIP dsPIC30F/PIC24F/dsPIC33F devices. The demo board has a socketed 28Pin DIP, USB port, power supply regulator, crystal oscillator, connectors for MPLAB® ICD 3 In-circuit DebuggerMPLAB® ICD 3 In-circuit Debugger/Programmer and PICkit® 3PICkit® 3, single UART communication channel via USB bridge, header for access to all device I/O pins, circuit prototyping area including pads for SOIC and SOT-23 devicessupports 28-pin PIC24 microcontrollers or dsPIC® DSC devices. This board is an ideal prototyping tool to help validate key design requirements using these microcontrollers and DSCs (to use with MPLAB® IDE).

Buck/Boost Converter PICtail Plus Daughter Board provides an easy and economical development platform for dsPIC® DSC SMPS and Digital Power Conversion GS family Digital Signal Controllers which are designed to provide low-cost and efficient control for wide range of power supply topologies and power conversion applications. The Buck/Boost Converter PICtail Plus Board consists of two independent DC/DC synchronous buck converters and one independent DC/DC boost converter. The board operates from an input supply of +9V to +15V DC. The 28 Pin Starter Kit provides closed-loop Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) control in the software to maintain the desired output voltage level.
