Chipino: is an electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, students, technicians, engineers and anyone else interested in creating interactive gadgets.
The Chipino module uses the PIC16F886 with a 16 Mhz crystal and 5v operation. The module can be powered from the ICSP programmer header or an external power source. The module has an on-off switch for the external power source. The module has a reset switch and connection headers that match the Arduino footprint so many shields can be plugged in.
The Chipino code can be developed with any software that supports the PIC16F886 and programmed by any PIC programmer including the popular PICkit 2 and PICkit 3. You can also use it with any IDE supported by the compiler you choose to use. There are many free compilers for the Chipino module.
