WBZ451 and PIC32CX-BZ2 Early Access Development Kit

The EA71C53A is an Early Access development kit for developers who want to explore and develop applications with Microchip's upcoming Bluetooth 5.2 + Zigbee wireless solution, the PIC32CX-BZ2.

Take your multi-protocol wireless design to the next level with the PIC32CX-BZ2 family of wireless microcontrollers (MCUs) and WBZ451 modules. Featuring the latest Bluetooth® Low Energy specification 5.2, industry-leading security and a proven Zigbee stack, the PIC32CX-BZ2 family is a general purpose, low-cost, 32-bit Microcontroller (MCU) supporting Multiprotocol wireless interfaces, hardware-based security accelerator, transceiver and Power Management Unit (PMU). The WBZ451 module is a fully RF-certified wireless module based on the PIC32CX-BZ2 MCU.

The Arm® Cortex®-M4 based PIC32CX-BZ2 also integrates a high-performance 2.4 GHz radio and supports a wide temperature range in a stand-alone package to make it well-suited for industrial applications such as industrial lighting and remote factory/building control. It is also ideal for home automation such as lights, door locks and blinds.
