Description: This is simple prototype board for development of USB application with PIC18F4550 microcontroller. The power of the 18F4550 is that it has USB hardware built into it so that you can program different USB stacks directly onto the IC. Microchip provides these free USB solutions for their microcontrollers which are openly available. The USB HID Class firmware can help you to build a mouse or other Human Interface Devices for Windows, USB CDC Communication class device, USB Mass Storage firmware (add your own USB disk drives to your computer), USB-to-RS232 driver. The prototyping space allows you to easily add on sensors, relays and other peripheral devices to interface to USB. The board can take power from USB or from an external supply with small jumper selection.
Dimensions: 100x80 mm (3,9x3,15")

Has on board power supply (5V). Reset button provided. I changed to PIC 18F45K50. Changed crystal to 16Mhz. I am going to replace the socket with a ZIF and use it as a programmer. I see this board is no longer available from Sparkfun. If Sparkfun is considering a new board it should have a switchable 3.3V or 5V power supply and a socket for the crystal.
