This kit enables users to begin USB interface development with Microchip's PIC® PIC18 family. The development kit includes the powerful PCWH Integrated Development Environment with compiler support for Microchip's PIC® PIC10, PIC12, PIC16 and PIC18 families and an ICD-U64 in-circuit programmer/debugger that supports C-aware real time debugging. The prototyping board features the PIC18F4550 with an on-chip USB controller peripheral. PC software (with source) is included to communicate with the USB board. CCS provided examples include human interface applications and a high speed example emulating an oscilloscope.
The USB Prototyping Board (Size: 3" x 1.75") includes:
- PIC18F4550 Flash Chip
- 26 I/O Pins (11 Can Be Analog)
- RS-232 Port and RS-232 Level Converter
- Three LEDs
- One Potentiometer
- One Push-button
- One Jumper to Configure board as self-powered or USB powered
Two example programs are provided with the CCS C compiler. The first example is how to configure the board to act as a HID device, the second is an example how to configure the board to act as a USB device that accepts and receives bulk mode transfers. C source code, Microsoft Windows applications and source used for both examples are provided.
The CCS USB examples are also compatible with the Microchip PIC16C7x5 USB peripheral, which CCS also provides C source code with the CCS C compiler. To develop with the PIC16C7x5 you may purchase the CCS Software Prototyping Board and attach the optional USB connector (USB Add-on).
The USB Development Kit includes:
- USB Prototyping Board
- In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer
- Exercise Tutorial
- 9V AC Adapters and Cables
