A short while ago we did a close up on the DEVCC – V18 and if you missed the tweet, you can read it here DEVCC – V18. Today, we are going to have a closer look at the DEVCC – V40. The DEVCC sports a PIC18F45K22, TQFP package with an 8 MHZ Ceramic resonator. The PIC does have 4 X PLL so by reconfiguring the fuses on the device you could speed up your device to 32 MHZ.
For more details on the device, see the following link: PIC18F45K22 Datasheet.
The DEVCC – V40, like the DEVCC – V18 is a versatile PIC centric development platform. The micro-controller has been housed in a “Form” which means that the DEVCC offers a form factor enabling compatibility across the range of devices.
Shown above is the DEVCC – 40 in two configurations, 1) no shield and 2) with shield.
- USB Bridge MCP2200
- SMT Mini USB Interface
- 2.1 MM DC Jack
- SMT LDO Vreg 3v3 and 5v0
- Reset button
- 10 Way DIL headers (duplicated on opposite side)
- ICSP Interface
Shown on the right is a DEVCC with a shield in place. The shield is the standard shield which allows you to build your own circuitry into the shield. Used together the DEVCC – V40 and the shield are a great platform to use to build projects and applications.
