PIC16F882 development board for workshops

Posted on Monday, June 11th, 2012 in PIC, project logs by DP

Here’s an Arduino styled PIC16F882 development board built for a university microcontroller noob workshop. A MCP2200 USB-to-Serial IC handles the USB communication, while the board features all the support circuitry required by the PIC, such as the 5v power supply, quartz oscillator, and the ICSP programming header.

The board was initially developed for a workshop in my University for microcontroller noobs. We built more than 100 boards. The dev board was used to teach soldering as well as programming to the participants, so to keep things easy a lot of board components are TH. The MCP2200 and the LM1117-5 were pre soldered.

Check out an action pic below, with a POV-shield mounted on the board.
