| Microchip Announces Development Tool for Easy Use of PIC(r) MCUs in
CHANDLER, Ariz., — Microchip Technology Inc., announced the PICDEM™
Mechatronics Demonstration Kit, which shows engineers and technicians how easy it is to design with PIC®
microcontrollers in an electromechanical or mechatronic system. The Kit comes with nine projects that teach users
how to read sensors, drive a Brush DC or Stepper motor, and display a value on LEDs or a liquid crystal display
(LCD). Additionally, a Mechatronics Workshop In-a-Box series of hands-on seminars is planned to begin in August that
instruct potential users on how to easily utilize Microchip’s semiconductors in electromechanical applications.
Mechanical and analog engineers do not have a lot of time to learn new skills like programming a microcontroller.
Yet, due to the advantages of microcontroller-based systems such as higher reliability and lower total system costs,
mechanical components are increasingly being replaced by electronics – particularly in the automotive, appliance and
“As more mechanical designs migrate to mechatronic solutions,
Microchip continues to be a major player – leading this trend through our diverse microcontroller product line,”
said Steve Drehobl, vice president of Microchip’s Security, Microcontroller and Technology Development Division.
“Through instructional tools like the PICDEM Mechatronics Demonstration Kit, Microchip enables engineers to learn
how to design innovative products that are safer, more reliable and ultimately provide a lower cost to
The PICDEM Mechatronics board is very flexible, enabling the user to experiment with
the many peripherals on a typical PIC microcontroller and rapidly prototype a design. The board has a 40-pin and a
20-pin socket (compatible with 8-, 14-, and 20-pin PIC microcontrollers).
