This week Rwinscot shared his ISP2DIP project in the forum. And he is giving away 2 freebies: These turned out just as well as the TAG2DIP adapter… as with my others I have 2 freebies to give away. Just send me your name/address and I’ll drop one in the mail for you.
PIC32 microcontrollers in DIP packages are in stock at microchipDirect. The prices range from $2.51 in the singles to $1.82 in high volumes. This compares well to 8, and 16bit PICs which also range around $2 in the same package. Via the forum. Thanks Shaos.
Here’s a quick way to how to adapt an SOIC surface mount chip to replace a through-hole part. You can do this with stuff on your bench: a DIP IC socket, a few wires, and a wood scrap. Beautiful? Heck no. (More like slimy but satisfying.) But finding a way to get your circuit board […]
Here’s a pic of the new 32bit PIC32 microcontroller in a DIY friendly though-hole package. Shaos received a free sample from Microchip and shared this pic in the forum. Microchip is not alone, NXP is also releasing an 32bit ARM in hobbyist-friendly packaging.
