The LAB-X4 provides a full complement of hardware peripherals for an 8-pin microcontroller such as the PIC12F683 or a 14-pin like the PIC16F688.

The LAB-X4 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. 

Many different projects may be created using the LAB-X4. Some examples include LCD clock, servo controller, LCD backpack, and many more.  The LAB-X4 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 the melabs U2 Programmer.  It is recommended the LAB-X4 be used with the 8-pin PIC12F683 or 14-pin PIC16F688 (available separately). These flash devices may be reprogrammed again and again. 

The LAB-X4 is available in either assembled or bare PCB form. A parts list and schematic are included.
