Easy-to-build, easy-to-use and very powerful.
The Pinguino 45K50 is one of the most simple board to assemble.
It is little (71x26mm) but very easy to solder even for kids.
It needs only 4 resistors, 3 capacitors, 2 LEDs, 1 reset button and 1 USB connector (as every Pinguino is a full-speed USB device) to work.
The Pinguino 45K50 is also an upgradeable board.
If you need it, you can add a 5V regulator to feed the board from an external power supply.
It's also possible to add an external crystal. In this case, note that the PCB is fully compatible with the PIC18F4550 so you can easily turn your Pinguino 45K50 to a Pinguino 4550.
The Pinguino 45K50 comes pre-programmed with a USB bootloader, so you won't even need a programmer to use it.
You only need a USB cable and a computer (PC or Raspberry Pi).
Building instructions are available on the Wiki.
- C6,C7 22pF (marked as 22)
- C3 22uF (polarized, marked as 22uF)
- C4 100nF (marked as 104)
- X1 8- or 20 MHz crystal (low profile)
- U1 LM7805 (5V regulator)
- P0 External Power Supply connector (3-pin header strip)
- 18F45K50 PIC18F45K50 or PIC18F4550
(*) Use 2.54mm Single Row Male Header Strip if you want a breadboard-ready Pinguino, Female if you want it like an Arduino.
- Dimensions : 71 x 26 mm
- Breadboard compatible
- There is one reset button to switch to the bootloader mode.
- This board can be powered by the USB connector (5V) or an external power supply.
- It can be optionally powered through a 5V regulator (LM7805, not included) via the VIN pin.
- Any regulated external power supply from 2.3V to 5.5V can power the board via one of the 2 +/- pins (please read the PIC18F45K50 Datasheet carefully if you plan to feed your board this way).
