Customer Comments

  • Just to clarify: use this board with 18-pin PIC16’s, not PIC18. The latter will end up connecting the USART RX pin to the ICD PGM pin TX to the LED, while leaving its PGM pin floating. Jumpering pins 10 and 11 for PIC18 works to obtain ICD connectivity, but there is no RS-232E functionality without cutting a few traces and rerouting the LED.
