Pinguino 26j50 - DIY
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/schemati...eric26J50/
Feel free to build and test it.
Enjoy.
Régis, André

Great !

According to microchip, the PIC18F26J50 has:
- More memory (64KB vs 32KB)
- No eeprom (vs 256 B)
- More ram (3800 vs 2048)
- Less I/O pin (22 vs 24)
- 10 capacity touch channels (interesting !!)
- 2 Serial port (vs 1)
- 2 SPI/I2C (vs 1)

but also :
- Operating voltage 2.0 - 3.6V, with 5.5V tolerant digital inputs
- Hardware RTCC (provides clock, calendar & alarm functions)
- Peripheral Pin Select (PPS)
- more Timers (5 vs 4)
- ...

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
