Microchip Development Boards

For most PIC® microcontrollers, there is at least one Development/Evaluation Board on which you can download and run your application code using MPLAB® X IDE and an appropriate programmer/debugger. These boards offer different sets of I/O features to suit different application requirements.

Microchip's development tool homepage provides a list of the available 8-, 16-, and 32-bit Development Boards. If you are uncertain as to which boards best meet your needs, you can check out Microchip's Development Tool Selector which lists out the development options for each MCU.
