UNI-DS3 is a universal development system for PIC, PSOC, AVR, 8051, ARM and dsPIC microcontrollers.
Very fast USB 2.0 programmer with a simplified driver installation is available on MCU cards.
MMC/SD cards enable you to add mass storage support to your prototype device.
Just switch the card in order to continue working in the same development environment with a different microcontroller.
On-board Serial Ethernet Module ENC28J60 that uses SPI communication.
Real-Time Clock (RTC) with battery supply is used for time measurement.
RS-232 communication with a PC or any other device is performed via DB9 connector.
All the pins are taken out on IDC10 connectors to make them available for further connections.
USB 2.0 programmer can be connected to a PC via the on-board USB programmer connector.
Voltage level to be applied when a button is pressed is selected via the on-board jumper.
On-board jumpers are used for pull-up/pull-down port configuration. These jumpers are available for all pins.
LCD can be easily connected via the on-board connector that is also connected to MCU pins.
72 LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are used to indicate the logic state of all microcontroller pins.
Voltage Reference for A/D or D/A converter can be either VCC or 4.096 V.
72 push buttons are connected to all microcontrollers pins.
Real-Time Clock (RTC) PFC8583 with battery supply is used to keep track of the current time even when the MCU is off.
12-bit output DAC MCP4921 with serial interface is used for applications in measuring and regulating devices.
System can be easily configured by means of DIP switches. Each DIP switch configures one part of system.
Graphic LCD 128x64 can be easily connected via the on-board connector that is also connected to MCU pins.
Serial 12-bit voltage A/D converter for applications in measuring and regulating devices.
External power supply can be DC or AC. On-board jumper is used for selecting external power supply.
ENC28J60 is a 28-pin, 10BASE-T stand-alone Ethernet Controller with SPI interface.
RS485 communication is available on-board for connecting more devices to 485 network.
CAN module is used for communication with other microcontrollers.
