40-Pin PIC Micro Prototyping Board

The Proto-40 is a general-purpose prototyping platform to evaluate Microchip PIC based microcontroller products. Supported devices include most of the Microchip 40-pin devices including the PIC 16F877(A), 18F442, 18F452 and others. Included onboard is a full peripheral set including a header for in-circuit programming of flash devices, true RS-232C serial input/output with mounting for an onboard DB-09 connector, regulated power supply circuitry, reset circuitry and over 700 plated-through holes on the prototype surface.

The Proto-40 is a high quality prototype board, complete with solder masks on both sides of the board, plated holes along with a high-contrast silk-screen labeling component positions. Board size is a compact 3 5/8" x 5" (9.2cm x 12.7cm) ready to fit into standard size project cases such as the Radio Shack ABS plastic project case (270-1806 or 270-1807).

Designed for the experimenter, the Proto-40 Prototyping board provides a large area for user-designed prototypes, using wire-wrap or point-to-point wiring. All connections are routed to individual wire-wrap points.
