EP&Dee is offering you the chance to win a PICDEM™ Lab Development Kit.
The PICDEM Lab Development Kit (#DM163045) is designed to provide a comprehensive development and learning platform for Microchip’s FLASH-based 6-, 8-, 14-, 18- and 20-pin 8-bit PIC® microcontrollers. Geared toward first-time PIC microcontroller users and students, the development kit is supplied with five of our most popular 8-bit PIC microcontrollers and a host of discrete components used to create a number of commonly used circuits. Expansion headers provide complete access/connectivity to all pins on the connected PIC microcontrollers and all mounted components.
A solderless prototyping block is included for quick exploration of the application examples described in the “hands-on” labs included in the user’s guide. These labs provide an intuitive introduction to using common peripherals and include useful application examples, from lighting an LED to some basic mixed signal applications using the free HI-TECH C® PRO for the PIC10/12/16 MCU Family Lite Mode Compiler.
Alternately, a companion guide featuring the free version of Matrix Multimedia’s Flowcode V3 Visual Programming Environment (VPE) provides a flowchart-based method of implementing a series of introductory labs. A free version of Flowcode V3 can be downloaded on the Microchip website.
Completing the kit are Microchip’s PICkit™ 3 Programmer/ Debugger, which should be used for development purposes only, and a suite of free software tools that enable original applications to be developed quickly.
