Multi-processor test board for open source USB stack development

Posted on Tuesday, December 25th, 2012 in project logs, USB by DP


An open source USB stack for PIC microcontrollers has evolved in the forum over the last year. It supports a number of USB-enabled PICs, and a good developer would test each chip before each release. We’ve been crowd sourcing that testing in the forum, but now prolific forum member Mats is designing a PCB so stack developers can switch between different microcontrollers easily.

In essence it is a pcb with a single USB connector and a single ISCP and then jumpers to connect them to a particular chip on the board. A reset button and bootloader buttons with status leds might come in handy too. The clock frequency is selectable between 48MHz and 1.5MHz in 15 rather common frequencies.
