Embedded PIC Based PLC
RADIX - ECHO |- Versatile PIC development Board for 48 PIN Devices

RADIX - ECHO  is a compact and versatile PIC development PCB, economized for size and portability. Supporting the 16F and 18F 48 PIN range of devices, the PCB delivers an efficient and effective development experience. The PCB includes USB UART (useful for boot-loading), onboard power supply, ICSP header, and all IO tracked to headers.

The PIC18F47K42 is the 44 PIN TQFP smaller family member of the PIC18F57K42 TQFP device. Since the devices are of the same family, you can use the two development boards interchangeably.

 RADIX-ECHO: what is it?
RADIX - ECHO is a PIC Microcontroller development platform that allows the avid hobbiyst and professioal user to build applications. The PCB is designed to support the PIC16F  & 18F 48 PIN devices. This family of PIC devices is highly capable with many on board peripherals, digital IO, A2D, Serial coms, etc
Features . . .

  • LM317 base PSU with setting for 3v3 and 5v0
  • USB-UART, self powered
  • Reset button
  • Power LED
  • All IO tracked to headers
  • ICSP header & Mikroprog header
RADIX - ECHO is designed to facilitate rapid prototyping as a key feature. The compact design is suitable for use with a bread board, and is powered directly from a USB Type connector. A two pin header is available for an auxilary power connection if needed.
Deploy Applications
Embedded applications range from standalone systems which control a single element, to wired or wireless applications interconnected for reporting and monitoring. RADIX - ECHO is an ideal, cost effective and well supported tool with an efficient tool chain that will assist in completing projects and getting products to market.
