EduPIC - PIC Microcontroller development (demonstration) board is an assembled circuit board for Microchip PIC16 and PIC18 microcontrollers (40-pin Dip socket).
The EduPIC board can be used for many types of electronic projects, development and application prototyping. In addition, it can be used for demonstration, training, and education purposes.
EduPIC development/demonstration board was designed to allow:
without difficulty implement and explore the capabilities of the PIC microcontrollers.

The EduPIC development / demonstration board is designed for HANDS ON learning EXPERINCE how to program with Microchip PIC microcontroller.
In addition, EduPIC development / demonstration board is designed for EASY developing PIC microcontroller projects.
It ships with a 40-pin FLASH device PIC16F877A already installed. The user can change the device to other PIC16 or PIC18 40-pin DIP device.
The EduPIC development board is supplied with a FREE software package written in C language (based on HI-TECH compiler).
One of the unique benefits of the EduPIC development board is its RF capability. It has an option of a RF transmitter and a receiver built in. Additional benefits are:
