The LAB-X20 provides a very useful set of hardware peripherals for 8-pin, 14-pin, or 20-pin PICmicro microcontrollers. The 20-pin PIC16F690 is the recommended MCU for this board.

The LAB-X20 contains the circuitry required by the PICmicroŽ MCU to operate: 5-volt power supply, oscillator, reset circuit, as well as an RS-232 serial port, 2-line x 20-character LCD module, and basic analog and digital I/O.

Many different projects may be created using the LAB-X20. Some examples include LCD clock, data logger, LCD backpack, and many more. The LAB-X20 can run programs written in assembler, C and PICBASIC™ or PICBASIC PRO™. Sample programs are included. The in-circuit programming connector allows the resident PICmicro MCU to be reprogrammed on the fly (requires flash device) using programmers that support this feature like our melabs Serial Programmer. It is recommended the LAB-X20 be used with the 20-pin PIC16F690 (available separately). The board will also accommodate the 8-pin PIC12F683 or 14-pin PIC16F688 (some peripherals require a 20-pin MCU).
