I'm starting now with mcu's, and I just ordered the above kit from mikroelektronica. Anybody has anything to say? Delivery time, quality of the kit, usability, etc.
It seems that it comes with a USB programmer too, I'll have to check when it arrives.

I have one of these - best buy I ever made. Delivery time to
Australia was about a week.

I did a lot of research on educational boards before putting my money
towards this board. This is the most professional and fully featured
board I found and the price is excellent.

The quality of the board is awesome and it is extremely easy to use.
All you need is a USB cable (included) and it is up and running (No
external power supply required but if you want to you can use an
external supply). PICFlashUSB is the application you use to program
via the USB cable.

Mikroelektronica also produce software (A version of Basic and
Pascal). This is a very new product but is being expanded/developed
on a daily basis. The Basic has just been upgraded to include a
programmer so you don't even need to leave your development
environment. The company is extremely responsive to feature requests.

As you can tell, I am a very happy camper. I am not affiliated in any
way with this company - just a satisfied customer.




Best Regards





Steve

Hi Steve

Interesting I was looking at this board myself afew days ago. Certainly appears to have everything a beginner like me needs to start of with and is affordable even through the exchange rate.

thanks for the tip.

Hi,

I ahve the EasyPIC (1) board. and their PICFlash USB programmer. I'm very
happy with it and it has always sworked perfectly for me. I initially bought
just the EasyPIC board and then found out it cannot be programmed from a
laptop serial port or even using a USB to serial dongle due to the voltages
being +- 8V and not the full +- 12V you get from a proper desktop serial
port.

So I also bought their USB programmer. It runs about 10-12 times faster than
the normal serial method and it means I can put an ICSP connector in my
projects and use the PICFlash USB to update code with PICs in place.

The board and even the packaging is very professional and I went with them
becuase I think the price is just about the best around. The board is great,
the only comment I have is about the company (assuming its not just two guys
in a shed!!). They took over six months to reply to my emails, which I
repeatedly send every week. The phone number on their site was never
answered, I even tried their ISP to get a message to them but no luck. When
they finally replied they appologised and said they were a compnay of
engineers and were far to busy designing and making stuff to check the
email! I've not emailled them recently but I hope this is no longer the
case.

But all in all a great choice of board.

Kev/.

Ordered it yesterday, together with the LCD, temp sensor and compact flash
kit. Cannot wait for it to arrive!

By the way, what other tools do you guys reccomend me to buy (soldering,
voltmeters, etc)

That's kinda dependent on what you will be doing.

If you are going to be making a saleable product or make it into a
career then a scope is essential.

If, like me, it's just a hobby and you are making stuff for your
personal use (Or for friends) then a multimeter is an absolute must.
One with a frequency range can come in handy. Some even have
transistor and capacitor testers built-in. I like the one at
<www1.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=qm1536>. Also, I have found a
logic probe useful. A temperature controlled soldering station is a
must.





Best Regards





Steve

The url is
www.mikroelektronika.co.yu/english/product/tools/easypic2.htm
DO NOT try easypic.com, it is a cascading porn site.

In reading the site it looks like a real bargain for the $114 + $15
(display).
I am a little skeptical about the overall layout. supporting all the
different processors seems to guarantee a lot of extra wiring acting like
antennas. I don't see any ziff sockets but they could be added with
standoffs. Please keep us posted on your experiences, both good and bad!

Their Pascal compiler looks especially interesting to me. It is a bit pricey
for a hobbyist like me but I will investigate the free down load.

They weren't too bad, about 10 days to the UK.

Took them under 20 seconds to debit my credit card though!!!

I'm looking into that too, as I'm a PC Pascal programmer since 1990 (Delphi
since version 1). But for now I want to do the first examples in assembler,
just to be a bit closer to the architecture for some time.

One of the things I like about the board is the 2x5 headers for each port
(plus 5V and GND). Mikroelekronika are starting to make more and more little
addon modules, like the compaq flash one, so you can easily plug and play
with different devices.

I've started to design my own module boards as well, as the header is so
simple to connect to and the board if kept small will be supported by the
header connection alone. Amoungst others I plan on making one for the
X-Port. But I just need to get the 3.3V from 5V sorted...

However, looking closer at the photos on their website it apperars that the
pinouts of the headers are different on the EasyPic2...
I've emailed them to ask if the modules, compaq flash etc are compatible
with both... I'll let you all know in March. ;-)


Cheers

Kev/.

I've yet to see a URL for Mikroelektronika. It sounds like it's in Eastern
Europe ? A URL please ?

thanks,

Peter

Peter,
Here is the URL.
