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

This kit gives users an introduction to SPI and I2C serial buses. The development kit includes the powerful PCW 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 prototyping board has two nodes and shares common I/O, memory and sensor components between two PIC16 MCUs.

The first node has a PIC16F877A chip connected to a 74HC165 parallel-in/serial-out shift register, which allows its user to read a bank of eight DIP switches. Four 74HC595 serial-in/ parallel-out shift registers allow the user to display information on a four digit 7-segment LED display.

The second node has a PIC16F876A chip, which shares an I2C temperature sensor and a serial EEPROM with the first node. This allows for the investigation into data collision while accessing shared components. Both nodes have their own potentiometer, LEDs, push-button and RS-232 port.

Embedded Serial Busses Prototyping Board (Size 4.5" x 3.25") includes:
