Development System for 8/14/18/20/28/40-pin PIC, On-board ICD US$139.00

Development System for 8/14/18/20/28/40-pin PIC, On-board ICD

The EasyPIC6 development system a offers an environment for programming and experimenting with PIC microcontrollers from Microchip. As well as several on-board peripherals, it provides access to the port pins for you to add external circuits and peripherals. It features an on-board programmer with ICD support, so no external programmer is needed.

Every component of the board is identified with a silkscreen on both the top and bottom of the board. These marks describe connections to the microcontroller, operation modes, and additional information.

Note: The 162 alphanumeric LCD and the graphical LCD displayed in the pictures are not included. The COG Display is included.

This board includes an PIC16F887 microcontroller in a 40-pin socket, but it features sockets for most other DIL-packaged PIC MCUs. This includes two 8-pin sockets, a 14-pin socket, two 18-pin sockets, a 20-pin socket, a 28-pin socket, and a 40-pin sockets. Never plug in more than one chip at a time! The two 8-, and 18-pin sockets are there to support the different pinouts Microchip uses in those packages. Be sure to plug your chip into the correct socket!

What's On Board
RS232 communication with a PC or a microcontroller is performed via DB9 connector. System can be configured by means of DIP switches. Each DIP switch configures one part of the system. A DS1820 digital thermometer can measure temperature from -55C to 125C. A socket is provided. DS1820 not included.
System provides support for MCUs in DIP8, DIP14, DIP18, DIP20, DIP28 and DIP40 packages. It comes with a PIC16F887. 2 potentiometers are used for testing multiple A/D conversions. Inputs can be configured via jumpers. USB or external power supply source is selected by moving a jumper. Power supply switch turns the system on/off.
216-character COG Display is used for displaying text messages. It is connected to the system via SPI. All microcontroller pins are connected to IDC10 connectors for further expansion. 36 LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are used to indicate the logic states of all microcontroller pins.
On-board jumpers are used for pull-up/pull-down port configuration. These jumpers are available for all pins. 36 push buttons are used to excite microcontroller digital inputs. They are connected to all microcontroller pins. DIP switch is used to separate port pins from pull-up/pull-down resistors.
Very fast USB 2.0 programmer with mikroICD support. There is no need to connect an external programmer. An LCD can be connected via the on-board connector that is routed to MCU pins. LCD not included. LCD Contrast Potentiometer is used for adjusting LCD contrast.
Touch Screen can be connected to the board via Touch screen connector. There is also a Touch Screen controller. Touch Screen not included. External power supply can be either 9-32V DC or 7-23V AC. The on-board jumper is used for selecting external power supply. Quartz Crystal is replaceable. The MCU pins can be configured via jumpers as oscillator inputs or regular I/O pins.
A 12864 Graphic LCD can be connected to the board via the appropriate connector. GLCD not included. MCU pins are marked on the back and front of the board. These marks provide basic information on the pins. Voltage level to be applied when a button is pressed (GND or +5V) is selected via the on-board jumper.
USB communication connector enables you to connect your microcontroller with a PC via USB interface. Reset circuit is used to reset the microcontroller. It is connected to the MCLR pin of the microcontroller. PS/2 connector enables the development system to be connected to a PS/2 device such as keyboard or mouse.
44 Keypad allows efficient entry of numeric data and other characters as well. Menu Keypad enables easy and fast menu browsing for your prototype device. Port Expander enables you to add more inputs or outputs to your prototype device.

On-board programmer and in-circuit debugger

There is no need to use external equipment other than your PC. The EasyPIC6 has its own on-board USB 2.0 programmer. All you need to do is connect the system to your PC via the supplied USB cable, enable the programmer with jumper settings, then load your hex file using the PICFlash programming software supplied on the CD-ROM.

In-circuit debugging also is supported when used with a MikroElektronika compiler (mikroC, mikroBASIC, mikroPascal). Working size-limited demo versions of these compilers are included on the CD-ROM.
