Market is stuffed with various microcontroller development boards. But sometimes you may need fast simple and cheap solution. It takes almost no time to develop one at home. Like this one – a PIC16F883 development board built out of SMD parts – except pinheaders.
It has everything you may need to start building circuits around it and programming. Among features it is worth mention that it has selectable jumper to work with 5 or 3.3V power supply that is generated with LM1117 LDO regulator. There are all port pins opted out and ICSP programming header. Board looks great especially when it is made using toner transfer method.
