8 pin PIC development and project boards
These boards have been designed to complement each other. The larger development board (once built) can be used as a starting point for a project by attaching inputs and outputs to the board via the terminal blocks. The PIC software can then be developed and the complete solution tested without using a soldering iron. Once students are happy with their design they can transfer the design to the project board, soldering their chosen peripherals into the board. The development board can be reused on future projects. You can connect any device to the outputs of the board including LEDs, sounders, motors etc. The teaching notes for this project include a number of possible projects including, a decision maker, traffic light, timer, quiz buzzer, alarm and a timed fan. Both boards are supplied in kit form.
Requires x3 AA batteries, available separately.
|Feature||Development Board||Project Board|
|Compatible with any 8 pin microcontroller. The stereo jack is compatible with PICAXE® chips & most educational software.|
|Two inputs, complete with pull down resistors, ready for switches to be connected directly to the board.|
|Test button switches on the two inputs for ease of software testing.|
|Outputs 1 & 2 directly driven by the PIC, max current 25mA.|
|Output 3 transistor driven, max current 800mA.|
|Debug LEDs, allowing ease of software testing. These are low current LEDs and only consume 2mA, leaving plenty of current for the peripheral.|
|Terminal blocks for easy connection of devices.|
