PIC18F4550 Development Board
A simple PIC development board

This is an updated version of the PIC board. I found that it was quite difficult to drill holes through
the very small pads in the original layout. This version has larger pads and thicker tracks. I have also
replaced all of the capacitors and resistors with 805 surface mount types. The new layout is shown below.
Revised PCB layout
This is a simple 40 pin PIC development board as described in RadCom for November 2009. It is designed
for a PIC18F4550, but it will work with other 40 pin PICs like the PIC16F877A. It has no bells & whistles
attached. No buttons, LED, LCD ICSP etc. All of the PIC pins are easily accessible so that you can add
any features you need. This board has been tested with the Vasco PUF and the Pinguino USB bootloaders.
