18F's For the Pickit 2 LPC Board!!!

Not sure if anyone as mentioned this yet, but a select few 18F's can now be used on the Pickit 2 LowPinCount demo board:D. The 18F1xK22's would be a drop in replacement for the 20 pin 16f690. Doesn't look like these parts are just available yet, but should be soon.

Found this out when on a whim I picked up a 18f14K50. This a $2+ 20 pin USB chip that also fits in the LPC board. You have to supply the board with a 5V source for the this chip tho, because the D+, and D- (3.3V max pins) are multiplexed with the PGD and PGC pins, nice going Microchip:rolleyes: (probably the place to put them, just not convenient). The work around is explained on the Microchip forum here. To be safe, there is a config bit to set??, CONFIG VREGEN = ON, for the 5V part internal voltage regulator. There is a bit of discrepancy between the MPLAB config help, and the data sheet, which does not mention it.

There is in all fairness a LPC USB board just for the 18f14K50, but I like the reuse factor of the old board
