PICuP ProtoBoard - BitScope Designs

ProtoBoard started life as ProtoPOD.It was designed as a prototyping POD for use with BitScope making development of new (PIC based) POD designs easy.

PICuP ProtoBoard - BitScope Designs

It is a small (2.6"x4.0") PCB comprising a 20 x 13 thru-hole prototype grid pre-wired with 4 busses and a 40 or 26 pin header with pads for connections into the circuit.

PICuP ProtoBoard - BitScope Designs


PIC ICE Probe - When you need to analyse an existing circuit that has a PIC in it you may wish to observe signals at the PIC pins to diagnose a fault. 

Data Logging  - ProtoBoard includes a serial interface which can be used as the basis for any number of data logging projects. The PIC may be programmed to monitor some external variables and then transmit the data to a remote PC as required.

PIC Microcontroller Tutorials

These are Tiny Chips that integrate the Microprocessor and Peripheral chips in a compact size with low power consumption. PIC Microcontrollers from Microchip are the evolved computing digital devices that go into many gadgets and intelligent equipment. These are easy to program and reprogram and even protect your code or IP.

PIC Microcontroller Tutorials

The PIC has the math power. The memory, the I/O ports are integrated in the chip like 8051. Some may remember that Microprocessors like 8085 and Z80 had all these functions in chips outside and used to consume more power. Then came CMOS and better IC technology. The 8051(now avr, atmega)and PIC Micro are entire boards in one chip.

PIC microcontrollers for beginners too - Author: Nebojsa Matic

The above tutorial gives the History of computers, microprocessors and the details of PIC Micro's Internals.

”..what microcontrollers are and how they operate. Numerous illustrations and practical examples along with a detailed description of the PIC16F887 microcontroller will make you enjoy your work with PIC MCUs.”

PIC Training Course

Gooligum PIC training board

Introduction to PIC Microcontrollers,Baseline PIC Architecture and Assembly Language, Baseline PIC C Programming, Mid-range PIC Architecture and Assembly Language - Quite a few are free and can be read online.

Starting with PICmicro controllers by Wouter van Ooijen. PICmicro is the brand name for a family of microcontrollers manufactured by Microchip. The PIC acronym stood for Peripheral Interface Controller, but recently Microchip has renamed their chips to PICmicro. Within this family the flash-microcontrollers (16×84, 16f62x, 16f87x) are ideal devices for hobbyists and low-volume professionals.

Learn to program in C with FED - This manual will take you through the process of learning C from variables through constants to pointers and then structures and unions. Most of the examples are standalone and are as small as possible to enable the purpose and effect to be easily understood.

8051 Single Board Computer

New Microprocessor learning board demonstrates exemplary design of 8-bit single board computer. More peripheral and easy to adapt to be a dedicated controller.

8051 Microcontroller Kit

8051 kit using 7-segment display and hex key monitor. The design is simple, small number of components and cheap. The size is compact, 5.3x5.7 inches. The keypad is ergo design for young students. The kit is 8051 based microcontroller. So many chip makers produce the 8051 core microcontroller. The kit is available for both preassembled and kit form.

  • Serial Interface: 9600 8n1
  • Monitor Program: Modified PAULMON2 including new commands
delabs Notes -
This is an Educational Masterpiece, with more Relevance to Asian Students. I took my first steps with 8085, Z80 and later 8749. Then the 80C51. If you start writing code for 8080, you will want features which will come in 8749 and when you study 8749 and think of enhancements 80C51 will pop out as if they read your mind.

Once you work with these, then you can use all the new uC and uP easily. It is better you write code with as less EPROM or Flash as possible. This will help you make quality code. The smaller the code the more real time your firmware and lesser bugs.

8051 Macro Assembler ASEM-51

In 1979 Intel has introduced the 8051 as the first member of the MCS-51 family of microcontrollers. Today hundreds of cheap 8051 derivatives are available from dozens of manufacturers. This makes the MCS-51 architecture so interesting for professionals and hobbyists.

8051 Macro Assembler ASEM-51

Intel had also defined an 8051 assembly language with bells and whistles for all the subtle peculiarities of the MCS-51 core, and offered a well-designed 8051 assembler, the legendary ASM51. Unfortunately, Intel obsoleted all its MCS-51 development tools in December 1993. The original (and IMHO best) 8051 assembler was gone and no longer available! ....... - W.W. Heinz,

Assembly Language and Hex - 8051

ASEM-51 is a two-pass macro assembler for the Intel MCS-51 family of microcontrollers. It is running on the PC under MS-DOS, Windows and Linux. The ASEM-51 assembly language is a rich subset of the Intel standard that guarantees maximum compatibility with existing 8051 assembler sources.

"In the letter, they told me that they had used my ASEM-51 V1.2 to develop the motor-control software for a little Mars car prototype..."They had validated several 8051 assemblers, and found ASEM-51 to be the most reliable and best documented one.
