XLP 8-bit & 16-bit Development Boards for Extremely Low Power Designs

The XLP 8-bit & 16-bit Development Boards are designed with eXtreme Low Power in mind. Designed as a true platforms for low power development, they enable designs with sleep currents as low as 20 nA. Both boards are suitable for prototyping many low power applications including RF sensors, data loggers, temperature sensors, electronic door locks, metering sensors, remote controls, security sensors, smart cards and energy harvesting. The PICtail™ interface supports many of Microchip’s daughter cards for easy evaluation of your next low power application. These low cost boards are the ideal complement to the MPLAB® PICkit™ 3 or MPLAB ICD 3 debugger and programmer realizing a fully-featured, economical, PIC24, PIC18 or PIC16 development environment.
