Hardware Details

SOCKETS

40 Pin ZIF socket is provided for the processor. Microcontroller can be removed from the board easily. This socket is intended to use our development board as programmer to program other IC’s.

10 pin FRC box type connectors: This will be found in each section of PIC 16F/18F development board. A 10 pin FRC cable is used to make connection with the main board section. Any 8 bit port of microcontroller can be used for interconnection. Ports having less than 8 bits are used as control signals for various sections.

Pins 1-8 are Data Pins. Pin 9 is VDD and the Pin 10 is GND. All 10 Pin FRC connectors will follow the same rule.

POWER SUPPLY

The external power can be AC or DC, with a voltage (15V, 1A output). The PIC board produces +5V using an LM7805 voltage regulator, which provides supply to the peripherals. Power supply is controlled through slide switch SW2.

5. After Finishing the Hardware driver installation. Open MPLAB IDE. Select Programmer >> Select Programmer >> PICkit2

user manual for pic development board

6. If the Kit is properly connected, you can see the Pickit2 Icon set on the Toolbar (Yellow Set) and the PICkit2 Ready Message. Very First icon is used for “Programming the device”.

user manual for pic development board

7. Finally open our Example Programs, Burn into the controller, do the hardware connection as per Chapter 2 and See the result.

Error 1: MPLAB may throw “Write Failure-Get lost Error”. If it does, follow the instructions below,

  • Unplug the Power supply from target board
  • Close MPLAB
  • Plug the AC/DC adapter
  • Reopen MPLAB

Error 2: MPLAB may throw “target not found” error, If it does, follow the instructions below

Error 3: MPLAB may throw “Verified Failed” error, due to the following

  • Hex File may be old, so compile the project once and try Programming.
  • Faulty microcontroller device, Replace it with new one.

Note *: If the error still retains check your windows firewall or antivirus software to allow this MPLAB and Pickit2 programmer.
