This board created for makers, who want to use various Arduino UNO shields with PIC micro-controllers from Microchip. Board facilitates the use of any 28 PIN DIP PIC microcontroller with or without crystal. Omit Y1 , C9 and C10 in case of internal oscillator . Project can also be used to develop RS485 applications with the help of on board SN75176 IC. Two regulators provide 3.3V and 5V DC outputs. ICSP connector provided to program the PIC IC using PICKIT2/PICKIT3 programmer. On board DC jack connector and additional CN2 Header connector helps to power up the board. Input supply 7V-15V DC. This board has been tested using PIC16F886 IC. The board also supports PIC18F2331 and PIC18F2431 PICs mainly used for motor applications. Solder R9 and C8 if Motor PICs are used or left open for normal microcontrollers. Switch 1 helps to reset the board. Refer to PCB top layout for Arduino to Microchip Pin configuration.
