I am designing my own PCB around a PIC32MM0064GPL028 microcontroller. Breaking down the steps below-
- I have built a simple breadboard version first, inspired by PIC32MM curiosity development board.
- Here is the schematic of the prototype programmed using PicKit3.
- The prototype connects and programs with no issues. And the same code works perfectly on the curiosity development board. This indicates that the issue is in the schematics or components.
- Links to the components I am using - PIC32, crystal, 18pF capacitor for crystal, 10uF capacitor for Vcap, Reverse Protection mosfet.
I am not an electronics engineer and have been playing with arduino and similar boards for quite a while now. However, this is all very new to me and probably the issue is a silly one. It'll be super helpful if you could help me debug the issue. I can upload the code if it helps? Thanks.
