Mini PIC Dev Board

Mini PIC Dev Board
           The purpose of this project was to make my life easier and in that goal the project was succesful. The mini pic dev board offers a quick and easy way to program the PIC, as well for powering the PIC on. At the same time, the PIC is still breadboard mountable, making it versatile for my many projects, and saving me from wasting my time building the same power circuit and ICSP programming circuit over and over again.

What To Do Now
           The next step would me to use some surface mount parts to create an even smaller PCB with potentially more functionality. It would be nice if any series of PIC could use this board, however that might require some clever layout and extra thinking. Making your own dev board no matter how simple will give you more experience in both the microcontroller world and the PCB manufacturing world, so give it a shot!

           All the goals that we set out to achieve in the purpose were met and the system operated successfully as you saw in the action video. As always it would be awesome if we could add mroe functionality to the board, however with such a small foot-print, it's really hard to do much more than what we successfully accomplished here.
           If you have any further questions, I implore you...don't be shy, take a look at the forums or ask a question there. I check them out regularly and love getting comments & questions.
