*Hardware only and proto-boards are intended for customers already owning a CCS compiler.

The ACE Kit is the perfect solution to to an advanced engineer's development needs. Along with a prototyping board, it includes the powerful Integrated Development Environment with compiler support for Microchip's PIC® PIC10, PIC12 and PIC16 families and an ICD-U64 in-circuit programmer/debugger that supports C-aware real time debugging. The ACE Kit utilizes the CCS Software Prototyping Board - A PIC® MCU designer's best friend. The prototyping board includes a standard 40-pin socket to access connectors and expanders to develop a variety of applications before the final target platform is designed. Add on compiler support for PIC18 and PIC24 devices. (PIC24 and dsPIC devices need to be 5V.)

The Software Prototyping Board (Size: 6.625" x 3.875") includes:
