USB Small Peripheral Board (aka PIC18F14K50 Board) Finished

with 17 comments

Well, my board comes to me yesterday and I’ve soldered all parts. The board is really small, very compact, very robust. I’ve made a little test only to check if are something wrong, but not. Everthing works well. Very good for version 0.

See the photos:

Finished and empty PCB

Breadboard friendly

Programming via PICkit3

Now, I (and you, please contact me if you like it) can test and make nice devices, without boring with crystals, capacitors, reset, USB it self. You can attach it on a breadboard or your own prototype PCB with your circuit.

I’ve created a kind of pin card, for rapid pinnout reference. I got the card idea from Mbed project. It’s very useful, with all pins and ports plus the information about device peripherals.

Reference Card (like Mbed.org)

Think the nice things you can do… I want to make a test with USB Mass Storage Device, yes, a Flash Drive. I’ve a little project where this really help me with configuration storage, etc.

For test, I’ll show us some application example, like a USB RFID reader.

If you like this board and want to get one, email me to talk about. It’s a zero version, so some errors could exist.

Cheers!
