he LAB-X18 is intended for development and experimentation using
the 18-pin PICmicro microcontrollers, especially those equipped
with analog-to-digital converters. The PIC16F88 is recommended
for this board.
The LAB-X18 contains the circuitry required by the PICmicro 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. The board is
designed to accommodate 18-pin MCUs, including the popular PIC16F88.
Many different projects may be created using the LAB-X18. Some examples include
LCD clock, servo controller, LCD backpack, and many more. The LAB-X18 can run programs written in assembler, C and PicBasic or PicBasic
Pro. 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 U2 Programmer.
It is recommended the LAB-X18 be used with the 18-pin PIC16F88 (available separately). These flash devices may be reprogrammed again
and again. Sample programs are included.
The LAB-X18 is available in either assembled or bare PCB form. A parts list
and schematic are included.
- 18-pin dip socket for PICmicro MCU
- 5-volt regulator
- 1 pushbutton inputs
- Reset pushbutton (can be configured as an input on certain PIC MCUs)
- Potentiometer provides 0 to 5 volt analog input
- 1 Indicator LED plus power LED
- 2 line by 20 character LCD module
- RS232 interface
- In-circuit programming connector for melabs Programmers
- 4MHz crystal oscillator
- Socket for I2C serial EEPROM (device not included)
- Prototyping area for additional circuits
Note: The 16F627, 16F627A, 16F628, 16F628A, and 16F648A
USART pins do not match the connections on the LAB-X18.
For these particular PICmicro MCUs, the LAB-X3
Experimenter Board is recommended.
