Pinguino 26j50 - DIY - regis - 07-06-2012

Hi,

We are proud to announce the new 8-bit home-made Pinguino board !!
Based on a PIC18F26J50 (see description here, this board is already supported by the Pinguino IDE but is still a work in progress ;-).
Design (made with KICAD), USB bulk bootloader (less than 3K, available both for 8- and 20 MHz Crystal), bill of materials, pictures, Hello World examples, etc, are already available on the download area : http://www.pinguino.cc/download/schematics/Generic26J50/
Feel free to build and test it.
Enjoy.
Régis, André

Hi regis,

I'm also a fan of PIC18F26J50 so it's nice to see it having better support in Pinguino everyday ;-)

I have some of them at home, so one of this days I will test it in Pinguino.

Thanks
