The latest version of Ultra PIC dev kit is modular in both hardware and software. The kit comprises of the Ultra One Base Board and PIC breakout board as the main components.
The PIC breakout board comes with 16F877A, however you may use any other 40 pin PIC MCUs like the 18F4550. The 16F877A comes with a UART bootloader hence no external programmer is required.
The Ultra One baseboard can additionally be used with several AVR, 8051 and Arduino Microcontrollers, we beleive this kit to is a solid gate way to Embedded Systems. This is not it, even the USB to Serial Convertor on board is moduler, you can take it off and use it any of the other projects. The base board is fully open, no peripheral is directly connected to the MCU breakout board. You may connect any peripheral to any port/pin you wish.
The newer version also supports 128x64 Graphics display as well as 128x64 OLED display. The story of the Ultra Kit does not end here, we have even made the code libraries for all major 8 bit microcontrollers modular. It means you can simple upgrade or even switch your project to a different microcontroller/architecture without changing your application code. The kit ships with all the additional stuff mentioned below to get you started; kickstart you're embedded development. What are you waiting for?
