'PIC support components'

This week I will finally order a Picstart 16C kit from DigiKey to get
started with PICs.  Do PICs need external components for thier crystals?
Also, if you run a PIC at 20 MHz, will a 3 layer PCB with a ground plane be
required?

Also, what chips does the PICSTART 16C kit come with?

Thanks,
Jeff Fisher

The PIC will require the xtal and two caps for the osc.
You will also need some bypass caps of .01 to .01 uf.
A standard PCB should be fine with good layout practices,
a 3 layer PCB is uncommon, usually 4 layers is the next
step up. All of the 16C kits I have seen, four, and all
of the ones handed out at seminars have only a single
16C64 in them. For the beginner, if you don't need 40 pin
PICs, the 16B is a better deal. More parts of different
flavors, a 54, 57, and a 71.

Happy PICing,
Brian
