This mini breakout board is designed to simplify prototyping and experimentation work with the popular 18-pin PIC16F series microcontrollers. It is small in size (1.95″ X 0.75″) and is breadboard friendly. – See more at: http://embedded-lab.com/blog/?p=7092#sthash.24mX1R2X.dpuf
It supports PIC16F84A, PIC16F628A, PIC16F88, PIC16F648A, PIC16F1827, PIC16F1847,
and other 18-pin
microcontrollers in the same series.
We are selling this as a kit for $7.50 on Tindie. The kit does not include any microcontroller. The following picture shows the components that you will find in the kit.
The new PCBs
are manufactured from OSH
Park and of better quality. Here are the soldering instructions for this kit.
1. The Mini breakout board kit consists of the following parts. Mini PIC breakout board kit2. First solder the low profile components (resistors R1
and tact switch). R1
is 10K and R2 is 470 Ohm.
is turned on when you power (+5V)
the breakout board. Solder low profile components first
3. Next solder the 18-pin DIP socket. Reference image for placing the DIP IC socket on the board
4. The headers should be soldered last. You can place the straight headers and the board on a breadboard during soldering. It helps to align the headers straight.
