This low cost prototyping board for 28-pin PIC microcontrollers comes mounted with a PIC16F873 microcontroller in a 28-pin DIP socket and minimum support components, like a reset switch, crystal and power-on LED.
All microcontroller port pins are each routed to two adjacent through-hole solder pads. Dedicated solder rows for Vcc & GND help to simplify connections of your own components. A prototyping area allows you to add your own circuitry.
Use this board for your quick experiments and prototypes.
Note: This board does not have an on-board voltage regulator. You must use this board with a regulated DC power supply. Exceeding 5.5VDC will damage the components on this board. The universal supplies shown in the options below do not have a 5V setting. You can use them, however, in combination with one of the 5V regulator boards found in the Voltage Regulators Category. That category also has some USB-sourced options.
PIC In-Circuit Programming
This board has a single row, male ICSP header for in-circuit programming of the microcontoller. If your PIC programmer has a RJ12 connector use our PIC-ICSP programming adapter (see add-on options below).
