PIC 40 Pin 20MHz 8K 8A/D - 16F877A Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

2 Soldering

Skill Level: Rookie - The number of pins increases, and you will have to determine polarity of components and some of the components might be a bit trickier or close together. You might need solder wick or flux.

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

3 Programming

Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

3 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

Customer Comments

  • Or, get these free of cost by visiting the Microchip website and filling out a sample request.
    Or, purchase them from Microchip at $4.94 a piece.

    • you can’t get this for “free” from Mircochip.
      A: Order from sparkfun for 8.95
      or
      B: pay $15 from microchip or sample for $7.50 without shipping cost included and wait 1-2 weeks.

      • Really? I bought one of these for about $5 at www.newark.com. Wholesale buying is alot cheaper, but if I knew about Sparkfun at the time, I would have bought it from them. Go Sparkfun!

    • And pay the international shipping in most cases

  • Whoops! Your Link appears to be broken. Here’s the link I found: http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/DeviceDoc/41291F.pdf
    Just Helpin' out!

  • PIC16F877A is not in production any more by Microchip
    It’s recommended in Microchip website to use PIC16F887 instead of this product
    I’m going to buy lots of things from sparkfun including Cana kit programmer .. and I want to make sure if there is any difference between the two products..
    If there is not .. I’m going to buy PIC16F877A from here ..
    anyway, if there is a difference .. I’m going to buy PIC16F887 from some where else ..
    I hope you respond to me as quick as possible

  • I’m trying to run the serial 160x128 graphic lcd with this. If anyone has accomplished this, could they post some help?
