This kit includes a USB Prototype Board, a full version C compiler with IDE, and an In-Circuit Programmer and Debugger, at a savings of $55 over purchasing each of the components separately. In addition, the kit includes a power supply.
The USB prototype board includes a Microchip PIC18F4550 MCU with full-speed USB peripheral. An exercise book will guide you through demonstrations using the board for simple human interface applications and a high-speed example emulating an oscilloscope. PC software (with source) is included to communicate with the USB board.
Two example programs are provided with the CCS C compiler. The first example is how to configure the board to act as an HID device, the second is an example of how to configure the board to act as a USB device that accepts and receives bulk mode transfers. Not only is the C source code provided, but Microsoft Windows applications and source used for both examples are provided. These USB examples also are compatible with the Microchip PIC16C7x5 USB peripheral, for which C source code also is provided.
