Win a MPLAB Starter Kit for Digital Power

Win a MPLAB Starter Kit for Digital Power (DM330017-2) from Softei and if you don’t win, receive a 20% off voucher, plus free shipping for one of these boards.

The MPLAB Starter Kit for Digital Power uses the dsPIC33EP64GS502 DSC to implement a buck converter and a boost converter. It is a digitally controlled power supply board that consists of one independent DC/DC synchronous Buck converter and one independent DC/DC Boost converter. Each converter can drive its on-board MOSFET controlled resistive load or an external load. The board has an LCD display for voltage, current, temperature and fault conditions, and an integrated programmer/debugger, all powered by the included 9 V power supply.

Microchip’s dsPIC33EPXXGS50X is a SMPS and Digital Power Conversion Digital Signal Controller. This device offers features supporting common, multi-loop digital switch-mode power supplies (SMPS) and other digital power-conversion applications such as AC to DC and DC to DC Converters. 

The dsPIC33EP ‘GS’ family delivers the performance needed to implement more sophisticated non-linear, predictive and adaptive control algorithms at higher switching frequencies in digital power applications. These advanced algorithms enable power supply designs that are more energy efficient and have better power supply specifications. Higher switching frequencies enable the development of physically smaller power supplies that offer higher densities and lower costs.
