PIC Development Board

  • DC Socket: This is the main power input point for the development board, use a 12V 1Ampere adapter (NOT included)
  • On/Off Switch: Controls the power of the board.
  • Power Indicator LED: Lights up when board is switched on.
  • Free i/o ports: Here free i/o pins of the microcontroller are available. Can be used to connect different types of peripherals like sensors or motor drivers. Connectors are male type headers with 0.1 inch spacing between them.
  • User LED: This LED can be turned on or off under software control. It is connected to PORTB bit 1. To turn it on, make this bit in i/o port HIGH. If you wish to disconnect this LED from the i/o pin, you can remove LED Jumper. Now this i/o pin is free for your use.
  • ICSP (In Circuit Serial Programming): Here you can connect programmer to download programs to the board.
  • IR Receiver: This inbuilt sensor is capable of receiving IR signals from standard TV remote controls. It is connected to INT0 (External interrupt 0) pin. It can also be disconnected if not required by removing jumper J3
  • User Button: This button can be use for any purpose required by the user. It is connected to PORTB bit 4 (i.e. RB4). When the button is pressed it will cause this i/o line to go LOW. Internal pull-ups must be enabled to prevent this line from floating!
  • LCD Contrast Adjust Preset: Adjust this with the help of an screwdriver to make text clearly visible on LCD module.
  • LCD Connector: Here the LCD module can be easily connected just by plugging its connecting wire.
  • 12V Output and Ground: Some external devices requires 12v to function, this point will help you power those devices. Example includes motor driver board, relay board, GSM Modules.
  • Serial Port with power supply: serial channel is very useful for connecting a wide variety of devices like RFID reader, GSM modem, GPS, Finger print scanner etc. This port can also supply 5v to such devices.
  • 5V Output and Ground: This point will help you power all your 5v peripherals. Two such connectors are provided because 5v supply is required by majority of peripherals.

NOTE: THIS BOARD DOES NOT HAS ANY BRAND OR MANUFACTURER NAME PRINTED ON IT! SO IT IS IDEAL FOR RESALE, USED BY TRAINING INSTITUTES OR IN COLLEGE PROJECTS

LCD Interface

PIC18F458 LCD Interface

Our development board supports hd44780 based alphanumeric LCD display module. These modules are available in a variety of different sizes. The common one can display sixteen characters in one line, and has two such lines. All LCD module has 16 pins for interfacing. Some pins are used for power supply, contract adjust and power input for the backlight. The rest are used for data transfer. hd44780 controller supports both 4-bit and 8-bit data transfer mode. But we use 4-bit mode as it save 4 i/o lines of MCU for other use. Following table list how the pins of LCD module are connected with microcontroller.

LCD Pin Number LCD Pin Name MCU Pin Name MCU Pin Number
4 RS RB3 36
5 RW RB2 35
6 E RD4 27
11 DB4 RD0 19
12 DB5 RD1 20
13 DB6 RD2 21
14 DB7 RD3 22
  LED BACKLIGHT RC2 17

LCD Backlight Control: The backlight of the LCD can be controlled from the software. A high level on PORTC bit 3 (RC3) will switch on the backlight. And since RC3 pin is also multiplexed with the PWM module of the microcontroller, you can also generate and feed a PWM signal to the LCD backlight, this will let you control the brightness from software.

RC3 is NOT directly connected to the backlight but we have used a small switching transistor to control the backlight. This is because MCUs i/o lines cannot source current required for the backlight led.

The image below shows which pins of microcontrollers are used by the LCD module. In the image they are shaded light blue.

The Board 16x2 LCD Module with 12 pin wire and connector soldered 6 PIN ICSP Cable, has female connectors at both the end DVD with compiler, IDE and Sample Programs

Note1: The microcontroller model is user selectable. (Selection is provided at the top of this page)

Note2: Backlight colour or LCD is user selectable. (Selection is provided at the top of this page)

Note3: A 12V 1A adapter is required to power up the board. BUT THIS IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE PACKAGE! as many engineers already have power supplies available with them. If you do not have a power supply available, you may order it from here.

Note4: A programmer is required to transfer program to the board. BUT THIS IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE PACKAGE! as many engineers already have programmer available with them. If you do not have a programmer available, you may order it from here.
