This is a PCB kit that comes with the IC, and so will create a complete microcontroller board. All that is needed is a power supply (5V) and a serial device. Most USB to serial converters will also output power so no supply will be needed.

The kit comes with an on board 3.3V regulator. To complete the kit all that is needed is a soldering iron and some cutters.

** The BV1-USB comes complete with the USB to serial so nothing extra is needed to get the board going as it has a 5V power output.

Comparison with Arduino

Getting Started

The BP1 comes in kit from and so will need assembling. This should take about 20 minutes or less but will need a soldering iron and some wire cutters.

Once assembled it is ready to go as the IC already has an operating system on it.

Pin outs

NOTE: D8 (RB10) and D9 (RB11)  are also used for the communication, UART2.

The PIC32 is much more versatile than the original processor that the Uno was designed for. The table shows some of the possibilities of the pin designations. Also it is possible to redirect some pins to carry out alternate functions. This is called Peripheral Pin Select or PPS.
