The mikromedia for PIC18FJ is a compact development system with lots of on-board peripherals which provides a convenient platform for development of devices with multimedia content. The central part of the system is the 8-bit PIC18F87J50 microcontroller that comes with a fast USB HID bootloader installed so that you can program from your PC without any extra hardware. It also can be programmed with a Microchip ICD2, ICD3 or compatible external programmer. The mikromedia for PIC18FJ features integrated modules such as audio module, TFT 320×240 touch screen display, USB connector for communication with the microcontroller, accelerometer, Flash memory, and microSD card connector.
This development system is powered by your PC via USB. Simply plug in the USB cable and the TFT display will turn on automatically. It also can be battery powered.
The board measures 8 × 6 cm (3.14 × 2.36 inches). All unused microcontroller pins are available via pads along the sides of the board. These allow you to add on mikromedia shields (see options below), or to add this board to the mikromedia WorkStation.
