This is the PIC18F452 Shield. The goal of this project is to build a development board for any of the PIC 18F 40 pin series so that it can be powered up, programmed and used while also connected to a bread board or used as a shield. Since the board connected to a breadboard the PCB layout needs to be as compact as possible. The design this board around the PIC 18F452 microcontroller, the LM7805 +5v regulator to provide power and a standard 6 pin header to connect any ICSP connector to the board and program the PIC. A wire terminal should be used. Adapter / transformer can be used to powerup this dev board. Diagram and illustration guide will be followed @


Build on the ideal devolopment board

If you’re happy to create and raring to go… hold out a moment. There’s something you must do for starters – opt for a development board. Many of the electronics projects created in the maker movement are built on a development board and selecting the correct one could be a daunting task, particularly if you’re a newcomer to the topic and have no concept what the board does. Simply, a development board is a PC board or a tiny PC that gets your electronics project up and going.

There are many sorts of development boards attainable – from microcontroller-based boards to System on Chip (SOC) to single-board computers (SBC) to purpose-built boards with Bluetooth and WiFi.

Don’t fry your minds at this time, this could be made easy.

KakiDIY founder Johnson Lam states that the Raspberry Pi and Arduino are the favorite development boards by the manufacturers in Malaysia. There are several variants of these boards – both at first designed as teaching tools – and the price tags differ. They are distributed on the internet and at PC merchants.
