PIC KICK is an embedded system development board for Microchip’s 40 pin 8-bit microcontroller. It is a low cost kick start board based on PIC16F877A designed to help professionals, students and amateurs to explore the capability of PIC16, PIC18 architecture and practice application development for various interfaces with minimal hardware reconfiguration.


On-board Microchip’s PIC16F877A microcontroller with ds30 UART bootloader. Eliminating the need for an external programmer to program the microcontroller.

  1. Power jack for an external power supply from 8 to 16V AC/DC. Alternatively the board can be powered through the on-board mini USB connector. 
  2. 16x2 Character LCD interface operating in 4-bit mode.
  3. Direct Port Access to all the port pins for interfacing external circuits and ADD-ONs.
  4. On board USB B-Type connector for Microchip's 8-bit 40-pin microcontrollers with on-chip USB peripheral. Example: PIC18f4550 Microcontroller.
  5. Four on-board LEDs to display status of selected GPIO pins with an option to enable/disable using a jumper.
  6. Test points for +5V and GND for hardware debugging.
  7. Four Push Buttons with external pull-ups to provide digital input to selected GPIO.
  8. On-board replaceable crystal of 12MHz to clock the microcontroller.
  9. Variable Analog Input using a potentiometer to a selected channel.
  10. Manually set the contrast of Character LCD using POT1.
  11. On board USB to Serial converter to implement UART communication using the standard USB port on the computer. This can also be used to program the device with on-chip bootloader.
  12. Connector to support MICROCHIP’s programming/debugging product line (ICD2, ICD3, PICkit2 and PICkit3) and similar development tools.
  13. Push button to hardware reset the MCU.

Besides the above features the development board is well-documented on top and bottom side for easy hardware troubleshooting.
