" FLASH - Lab 77 "
The Ultimate PIC Development System
Have you ever -
Spent 99% of your development time struggling to interface several prototype circuit boards or breadboards to your target microcontroller..?
Had to tear-down a circuit on a breadboard to build another circuit, and then, several days later, "you need the same circuit again"..?
Spent weeks of your time trying to find a "BUG" in your code, only to find out you knocked a wire loose while digging the PIC out of your breadboard to re-program it for the 100th time..?
- you're not alone..!
Writing code for the application can be complex enough without spending all day long running wires from multiple prototype or breadboard circuits into the core controller during development.
With FLASH-Lab 77, this can all be a thing of the past, and you can spend more time "writing code" for that next embedded application - rather than yanking wires and breadboards all over your bench...!
The idea is simple, but the results are phenomenal. With modular prototype boards that plug directly into the FLASH-Lab 77 core controller, you "build it once", and it's available the next time you need it with ZERO downtime.. Here's how..!
Using plug & play modular prototype boards allows you to build the various circuits you use on a regular basis, write your code, test the new circuit, and drop it in a drawer until you need it for your next design or system expansion.
Imagine doing this with breadboards, trying to remember which wire goes where, and put it all together the next time you need the circuit..!
With FLASH-Lab 77 you just plug in the pre-constructed & tested circuit without the hassles of wiring everything together again. Build it, save it, and just plug it in the next time you need it.
It's a simple concept that will save you a lot of frustration on that next embedded design job.
FLASH-Lab 77 requires "no programmer". The PIC16F877 on FLASH-Lab 77 programs itself with the included PC software application, and a serial connection to your PC.
Each FLASH-Lab 77 comes with a FLASH PIC16F877-20/P 40-pin DIP "RISC" microcontroller pre-programmed with the boot-loader firmware.
The FLASH-Lab 77 crystal oscillator mounts to the core module PCB in a 3-pin female sip socket. Changing the boot-loader firmware from 20MHz to 4MHz is simple.
The FLASH-Lab 77 serial interface was designed for optimum flexibility, and for use with various boot-loader configurations as necessary.
The I/O-pins assigned to the boot-loader programming functions are (only) used during system reset, and during the actual programming process. Once your application code is loaded, you have full use of all I/O-pins.
You have total control of all 33 I/O-pins on the PIC16F877 for maximum use of all the PIC16F877 resources.
The PIC16F877-20/P RISC microcontroller is an incredibly powerful processor, and offers a multitude of onboard hardware features & peripherals making it “hands-down” the ideal choice for almost any embedded application.
Combined with FLASH-Lab’s unique modular design capabilities, small / efficient size, and rapid development features, you’re really only limited by your imagination.
The applications are virtually endless, you're only limited by your imagination, and with FLASH-Lab 77 you can spend more time writing code for your hardware than trying to connect it....
