Universal development board enables choice of MCU & peripherals, plus remote access programming & debug
27 May 2022
MIKROE's 8th Gen development board includes wealth of features, plus support for major MCU architectures & 1200+ add-on boards.
Standards-based embedded development solutions firm, MikroElektronika (MIKROE) has released UNI-DS v8, a universal development board that is ideal for rapid prototyping, which includes everything electronics design engineers might need for their new project. It is equipped with a range of features and global standard interfaces that enable complex projects to be created quickly, efficiently and elegantly.
The UNI-DS v8 development board includes a SiBRAIN socket that enables designers to try out different MCUs (microcontrollers) in a prototype system without having to invest in other expensive hardware or learn new tools. SiBRAIN is the open standard for sockets and add-on boards and currently supports 3300+ different microcontrollers from different families including STM32, Kinetis, TIVA, CEC, MSP, PIC, dsPIC, PIC32 and AVR. 100+ SiBRAIN add-on boards are currently available in MIKROE's online store.
UNI-DS v8 has five mikroBUS™ sockets, where you can place any of the 1200+ different Click boards™. These add-on boards save developers time, eliminating the need for the testing and troubleshooting which is often associated with the prototyping phase. They cover functions including mixed-signal, wireless connectivity, storage, interface, displays, human-machine interface, adapter, clock & timing, motor control, power management, and audio & voice. New Click boards are added almost every day and the number of combinations of functions that are possible almost limitless.
Uniquely, UNI-DS v8 integrates CODEGRIP, the first-ever programmer and debugger over Wi-Fi. This means that designers can place a UNI-DS v8 development board almost anywhere, including difficult-to-access sites such as hazardous environments, agricultural settings and high-rise buildings, while still retaining full debugging and programming access. CODEGRIP supports more than 3300+ microcontrollers from different vendors, and free updates are provided as new microcontrollers and vendors are added.
Nebojsa Matic, CEO at MIKROE comments: “We were then the first company to make a universal development board back in 2002. Now it is very powerful with universal display and touchscreen interfaces and a high-quality power supply, as well as the flexibility of MCU and peripheral choice afforded by SiBRAIN and Click. But the ability to remote program and debug over Wi-Fi (USB connection is also possible), plus the integration with NECTO Studio, the world's first MCU vendor-independent IDE (integrated development environment), means that prototyping has never been easier, no matter where you are or what level of resource you have."
