Microchip Technology recently announced its latest PIC32 Bluetooth Audio Development Kit. The full-featured kit enables custom application development on the PIC32 microcontrollers (MCUs) for Bluetooth and USB digital audio solutions.

The PIC32 Bluetooth Audio Development Kit that ships with audio streaming demo code delivers up to 24bit, 192kHz audio and has been tested with over 100 different Bluetooth audio enabled devices, spanning 18 different manufacturers. The Bluetooth Hardware module and the Bluetooth A2DP audio software have been certified, saving the developer significant certification costs. The modular design allows developers to swap out the included daughter boards (one for Audio and one for Bluetooth) to create their own custom versions with their preferred audio and wireless solution.

The kit also supports USB Host and Device connectivity, Apple device authentication module interface, a 2 inch colour LCD, five general-purpose button switches, five LEDs and a Plug-In-Module interface for PIC32 microcontroller upgrades. The PIC32MX450F256 MCU is included, which runs at 80MHz with 256KB Flash and 64KB RAM. With such a broad feature-set and flexibility, the kit makes an excellent general purpose development tool.

"Microchip's new Bluetooth Audio Development Kit is an ideal solution for developers who want to add high-quality wireless audio to their design," said Sumit Mitra, vice president of Microchip's MCU32 Division. "The development kit includes an interface for use for iPod and iPhone products, enabling expansion to support these popular devices."
