UNI-DS v8 Development Board

UNI-DS v8 board is a full-featured universal development board for various microcontroller architectures. This universal development board is equipped with many on-board modules which give you great power and flexibility, including multimedia, Ethernet, USB, and other.


Programming & debugging over WiFi and USB-C

UNI-DS development board integrates CODEGRIP – the world’s first programmer & debugger over WiFi and USB-C. This feature allows unlimited possibilities for development. UNI-DS8 on-board wifi debugger/programmer



Access anywhere, under any circumstances, at anytime

CODEGRIP enables you to place UNI-DS development board in almost any hardly accessible places such as hazardous environments, agricultural settings, and high-rise buildings while still retaining full debugging and programming access. UNI-DS8 wifi debugger cross-continent access

Advanced technical support

Debugging over WiFi enables our technical support to directly access the user’s hardware and solve the problem. Replicating a user’s hardware is no longer a challenge. UNI-DS8 wifi debugger redefine technical support



UNI-DS8 codegrip debugger

Free on-board CODEGRIP

CODEGRIP debugger & programmer over WiFi and USB-C currently supports more than 3300 microcontrollers from different vendors. And you get lifetime free updates with new microcontrollers and vendors.


CODEGRIP Suite is a powerful software suite that offers complete control over the UNI-DS development board. It is used to intelligently manage programming and debugging tasks, as well as various other options and settings of the development board.

Plug and play

USB-C debugger enables effortless programming/debugging over a generic USB driver connection without the need for additional driver support.




SiBRAIN socket

The SiBRAIN socket facilitates extremely simple installation and replacement of a microcontroller (MCU) or processor on a development board. It allows absolute compatibility between the development board and any supported MCUs and processors, regardless of their pin number and architecture.


Freedom of choice

SiBRAIN standard allows working with microcontrollers from low pin count to high pin count on one board.

The UNI-DS development board is sold without a SiBRAIN add-on board.


Multi-vendor support

The SiBRAIN standard currently supports 3300+ microcontrollers from different vendors: Microchip, STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments, and NXP, with even more vendor support coming soon.



Display board connector

The UNI-DS development board features a new display connector. The new connector has female 2×20-pin support allowing different resolutions, screen sizes, and technologies.
