PIC Starter Kit with Board, PIC16F887, PIC18F4221, PICkit3 US$109.00

PIC Starter Kit with Board, PIC16F887, PIC18F4221, PICkit3

The PIC Starter Kit includes the PIC-BOARD development board, a Microchip PICkit3 in-circuit programmer/debugger with USB cable, two microcontrollers, and a CD-ROM with IDE, sample code, and a book (on CD) for learning assembly and C programming on PIC microcontrollers.

The PIC development board has sockets for 8-, 14-, 20-, 28- and 40-pin PIC16F and PIC18F microcontrollers, a socket for an EEPROM, a DB9 UART interface, headers for all available pins as well as for optional peripheral modules. In-circuit programming of your PIC MCU can be achieved via a 6-pin header into which you can plug the PICkit3. This kit includes both a PIC16F887 and a PIC18F4221 microcontroller, so it has everything you need to start working in both PIC16 and PIC18.

The Kanda Get Going with PIC Microcontrollers book starts with basics like number systems and logic, and develops learning about the PIC microcontroller and how to program it in assembly language before moving on to C programming. You will learn everything you need to develop your own projects. The Kanda PIC Starter Kit is also ideal for PIC development, as the programmer, debugger and board all support most PIC16F and PIC18F families. The board gives access to all peripheral functions of the PIC, which simplifies development.

PIC Starter Kit Features

  • Get Going with PIC Microcontrollers book on CD
  • PICkit3 Programmer and Debugger
  • Full-featured Development Board
  • MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment, including assemblers and C compilers
  • Sample code
  • Schematics
  • Tutorials
  • Includes PIC16F887 and PIC18F4221 40-pin PIC microcontrollers
MPLAB and the PICkit3 programmer/debugger support all Windows operating systems, including 64-bit versions. MPLAB also works in WINE for Linux, and a 32- and 64-bit Linux MPLAB X version is available free from Microchip.

PIC Microcontroller Board Device Support

The board can be used with most 8-, 14-, 20-, 28- and 40-pin PIC microcontrollers in DIP form. There are three MCU sockets on the board. The 20-pin socket also is used with 14- and 8-pin microcontrollers. The 8-pin socket on the board is for adding an external EEPROM only.

You can use any PIC microcontroller whose pinout matches the sockets on the board:

There are jumper settings on board for setting clock, voltage, UART and EEPROM configurations.

The board includes power and clock circuitry, and all ports are brought out to pin headers for easy connection of accessories, such as LCD, Keypad and 7-Segment display or your own prototypes. It has 8 switches and LEDs plus support for UART, I2C EEPROMs and ADC circuits.

MPLAB is a very good development environment with editor, assembler, C compilers and simulator all built in, which simplifies the learning process and allows fast development. The PICkit3 programmer and debugger included in the starter kit runs from the MPLAB environment, allowing you to single-step through your code, watch register changes and run to breakpoints for effective debugging.

The PICkit3 is also a programmer for loading the PIC microcontroller with your finished code, and this can run from within the MPLAB environment. It also has separate programming software included on the CD, which is quicker and simpler to use for production programming.
