Designing a PIC24 Development Board

Several of our recent projects have used a 16 bit PIC24 microcontroller from Microchip.  The PIC24FJ128GC006 contains two 16-bit ADC channels which makes it useful for measuring voltages more accurately than the 10 or 12 bit ADCs you normally find on microcontrollers.  We used this microcontroller for the temperature controller on our recent Soldering Robot and are looking at using it for another project in ...

uDuino: Very Low Cost Arduino Compatible Development Board

Arduino boards are great for prototyping. However they get rather expensive when you have multiple concurrent projects or need lots of controller boards for a larger project. There are some great, cheaper alternatives (Boarduino, Freeduino) but the costs still add up when you need many of them. This is a way, after about $25-$30 initial investment, to build sub-$10 Arduino-compatible boards with very little ...
