WIZ-C - PIC C Compiler Simulator and IDE
This has Drag and Drop component selection. Point and Click pin connections and direct parameter selection by drop down lists, check boxes and validated data entry. It also supports In-Circuit Debugging and also can transfer to MPLAB. (professional version). They have a free demo version too.
There is a optional library set to considerably ease USB development. Included components support timers, serial interfaces, I2C, LCD, 7 Seg displays, keypads, switches, port controls, many bus interfaces including IIC and Dallas iButton.
Learn to program a PIC micro with C using FED
This free 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.

The CREATE USB Interface
The Create USB Interface is an open source microcontroller board that can be programmed in C, BASIC, or Arduino languages. This latest version is called the CUI32Stem, which is designed to work ‘hand-in-hand’ with the GROVE prototyping system including a wide range of sensors and actuators.
The PIC is the heart of the board. It's a programmable microcontroller with 32Kbytes of flash program memory and 2kbytes of general purpose SRAM. It has 13 A/D inputs and 18 general purpose I/O ports. On the CUI board, one of the general purpose I/O pins is dedicated to the "program" button to enter bootloading mode. You can use the remaining ports for anything you wish.

New library : I2C 16-bit I/O expander #Pinguino can now drive Microchip MCP23O17 / MCP23S17 16-bit input/output port expanders with i2c interface, interrupt output and cascadable for up to 8 devices on one bus.
Pinguino - Arduino-compatible for PIC
Pinguino Software is an Integrated Development Environement (IDE) which gives everyone the ability to write, compile and upload programs on a Pinguino board.
Pinguino comes with a USB Bootloader. This small program running inside the microcontroller is responsible for transferring your application from your PC to the microcontroller memory and handing over the control to this program afterwards.

MikroMedia for PIC18FJ - MikroElektronika
It has Large 320x240 TFT Color Display with Touch Screen and Stereo. The batteries can be charged from USB port. The microSD memory card and 8Mbit Serial Flash Memory can help in storing data and media like pictures, sounds and other files.
Visual TFT is a standalone application used for rapid development of graphical user interfaces for TFT displays. Software generates code compatible with mikroElektronika compilers.
If you are a fan of arcade games, you won't resist this fantastic board. Gaming shield is an extension board for your mikromedia that provides you with standard gaming buttons and audio speakers, so you can build and play your favorite arcade games.
mikromedia GAMING Shield
GAMING Shield comes with convenient stacking headers, so you can easily connect not only mikromedia, but other shields as well, such as battery boost shield.

Mechatronics Demonstration Kit with PIC
The demonstration kit takes a hands-on approach to learning about mechatronics. Jumper wires are provided in the kit which allow the developer to experiment with connecting the PIC microcontroller to various components on the board. These components include sensors, LEDs, human input devices and motor drivers.
- PIC16F917 MCU with 8 MHz
- Displays: 8 LEDs and LCD
- Stepper motor and brushed DC motors
- Analog temperature sensor
- 32.768 kHz crystal for time generation
- Human inputs: 4 tactile switches, 2 potentiometers
- Optical speed sensor for brushed DC motor
- ICSP programming capability - MPLAB ICD

The Engineer's Assistant - Erik Grindheim
"This compact instrument is intended to be a digital laboratory tool for hardware and, in some cases, software debugging. It contains four instruments in one unit: logic probe, single channel logic state analyzer, frequency counter and serial code receiver"
Serial code receiver The serial code receiver receives 42 bytes and displays them in both HEX and ASCII. The baud rate is selectale in 8 steps from 1200 to 115200.
Logic state analyzer This is a one-channel logic state analyzer. It fetches 300 single bit samples in a selectable rate from 25ms to 1µS (40 Hz to 1 MHz in 16 steps).
Frequency counter The frequency counter displays the frequency with up to 8 digits on the LCD. The refresh rate is 500ms.
Logic probe The low and high logic levels are displayed by LEDs which are OFF if the probe tip is floating.

Microcontrollers I'm into microcontroller development, both software and hardware I've settled into the 8051 family, (incl. the AT89c4051), particularly the AT89s8252, after starting with PICs. Hey! see the new PicAxe.

Build Your Own Microcontroller Projects
Some of the projects include - The 4 Channel Pt100 Thermometer, G5-Data Logger, Solar Recorder, 89S52 and PIC Project Board. Even circuits, code and SBC for the popular 8051 can be found here.
Dual Channel Digital Volt Meter
"I do remember the Intersil ICL7135 very clearly. This year 2011, almost 29 Years, the classic integrating type analog to digital converter is still interested. With a cheap price and easy interfacing, I think I will design a cheap digital volt meter with microcontroller to provide serial interface similar to the Fluke45. Two channels is good for scientific experiment."
