oPossum 1,083 Posted December 14, 2011 Share Posted December 14, 2011 Usual price is $25. The Microstick is a low cost dev board for the 16 bit Microchip PIC. It has a built in programmer/debugger like the Launchpad, so you don't need any other hardware to program it. The 16 bit PIC are typically twice as fast as MSP430 at the same clock frequency, and in some very specific cases may be 10 to 100 times as fast. They have Peripheral Pin Select (PPS) that allows many of the hardware peripheral to be mapped to any convenient pin. The Microstick for dsPIC33F and PIC24H is the perfect solution for those looking for a low-cost, easy-to-use 16-bit development platform. The USB-powered kit includes an on-board debugger/programmer and a DUT socket for easy device swapping. This kit also comes with the dsPIC33FJ64MC802 and PIC24HJ64GP502 devices. link If you want to play with the new DIP PIC32 (MIPS) chips, the $35 Microstick II will work with all 3.3V PIC24FJ, PIC24H, dsPIC33, and PIC32 SPDIP packaged devices. Includes 1 each of PIC24FJ64GB002, PIC24HJ64GP502, dsPIC33FJ64MC802, and PIC32MX220F032. MattTheGeek, EngIP, pine and 3 others 6 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
