This training board, supplied in kit form, is specially designed to complement the Gooligum baseline, mid-range and enhanced mid-range PIC assembler and C programming tutorials.
All of the PIC tutorials are included with the training board - there is no need to buy them separately.
The tutorials are available for download immediately following your puchase, and can optionally also be supplied on a CDROM shipped with the kit.
The training board is supplied in kit form, complete with all on-board and additional components, including PICs, needed to implement every example in each lesson (except motor control) - simply by setting jumpers in almost all cases.
See the parts list for details of the included components.
It is also an excellent stand-alone general development board with support for all small (6 - 14 pin) PICs and all signals conveniently brought out to a pin header next to a solderless breadboard.
You should also consider purchasing the motor control kit, consisting of additional components, including a small brushed DC motor, MOSFETs and quad half-H driver IC, for use with the PWM lesson motor-control examples.
