PIC18F45K50 Development Board

Last week I designed a small development board for PIC18F45K50. Goal was to design a small PCB for TQFP package  to give away to students and teach them how to solder and how to use this nice microcontroller from Microchip. After a while, board came back from the fabrication house and they look and works great. 🙂

Microcontroller is really nice, with 32KB of program data, 2KB or RAM, full-speed USB and lots of other peripherals.

Some of the board features, besides very powerful microcontroller:

  • Voltage regulator
  • Crystal oscillator
  • Jumpers for selecting programming pins and reset source
  • USB Connector
  • Connectors for selecting power source
  • ICSP programming header
  • Signal LED-s
  • DC jack
