Description: This is the MCU used for the original IOIO. The PIC24FJ256DA206 is a 16-bit flash microcontroller with an embedded graphics controller and USB On-The-Go (OTG) capabilities.

On-board RAM is provided for display buffer, scratch areas, images and fonts. In some cases, the RAM requirements for the display used exceeds the on-board RAM; external memory connected through EPMP can be used. The embedded graphics module provides acceleration for drawing points, vertical and horizontal lines, rectangles, copying rectangles between different locations on screen, drawing text and decompressing compressed data.

The USB On-The-Go (USB OTG) module provides on-chip functionality as a target device compatible with the USB 2.0 standard, as well as limited stand-alone functionality as a USB embedded host.

  • this name is complicated enough to be the “nerd punchline” of all our jokes.

    just imagine:

    ay girl, are you from Tennessee? because PIC24FJ256DA206-I/PT.

    wow, you must be a computer because you turn my floppy disk into a PIC24FJ256DA206-I/PT.

    this is just the beginning i tell you. it will eventually catch on. eventually.

  • I have no idea why you’re offering this particular chip. It isn’t cheap because of powerful, but not often needed features. Why not offer the more common types (and that cute SOT23 packaged PIC10F200)?

  • Does it come pre-programmed with the IOIO boot-loader, or should I plan on programming it? I know it’s simple enough to use another IOIO and copy it’s boot-loader to this chip, but it would be nice if it already had the firmware loaded.

    • Nope, while it is the chip we used on the original IOIO we don’t assume that’s what you are going to use it for (and we can’t upload code until we have it soldered to a board). In other words its just a blank chip.

  • Can you soldering on this? What is your suggest for this to attach with the wire ?
