Silabs C8051F320 breakout board, intro to 8051s

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Zeta designed a breakout board for the Silabs C8051F320 microcontroller. A nice feature of this uC is that it doesn't require external crystal to support full-speed (12Mbps) USB. The C8051F320 is a nice chip it needs only 4 Capacitors to work. It comes in a hand solderable QFP32 package (0.8mm...

PROTOTYPE PREVIEW: PIC24FJ64GB/A002 breakout board

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

Earlier this week we prototyped a transistor tester circuit on a breadboard. We wanted a start with a full microcontroller and power circuit, ready to go, Arduino-style. All the breakouts we had on hand were a pain to use. Most obscure the prototo area and many were just too big....

nedoCPU-32 PIC32 breakout build and review

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Schazamp received a nedoCPU-32 32bit PIC breakout board from Shaos. He built stuffed it and got a simple "blink LED" firmware to run on it quickly. This is a nice board, and I'm looking forward to messing around with it. It might be a good starting point for trying to...

Another Nokia LCD breakout

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Rohitdesa built a breakout board for the Nokia 1100 LCD. The advantage of Nokia 1100 LCDs to the 3310s, is that they have a built in LED backlight. He used some high gauge wires to connect the LCD connectors to a standard pinheader. Via the forum.

nedoCPU-32: Breakout board for PIC32s in DIP packages

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Shaos is making a breakout board for PIC32 microcontrollers in DIP through hole packages. He based his design on his previous project the nedoCPU-16, a breakout for the PIC16F870 uCs. There is a 3.3v power supply onboard along with all the bypass capacitors required for the PIC32 to function properly....

XC95144XL breakout boards

Monday, November 14th, 2011

Jason decided to make breakout boards for the XC95144XL CPLD. A voltage regulator along with bypass capacitors are placed on-board. He provided a oscillator, connected to a global clock pin as well. The board is built with a single row header so it can be used with a standard bread-board....

XC9572XL breakout board: Frequency counter

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

Jason implemented a frequency counter on an XC9572XL CPLD. It uses a 1Mhz clock to count the duration of the input signal pulse, and shows the output on a 6 digit display. Initially he had to use additional 7400 logic ICs to convert BCD output from the CPLD to the...

PIC 16F1507 SSOP20 breakout board

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

After buying a few PIC16F1507s from Microchip, Dolabra is building a breakout board for their SSOP 20 pin package. Earlier this part was not supported by PICKIT2, and he had no way of programing them. As a stroke of luck Microchip added an updated device file for the PICKIT2 and...
