We've added the new CHIPINO Modules that allow you to program the Microchip PIC16F886 or any 28 pin PIC Microcontroller with ease. The CHIPINO modules are pin compatible with the Arduino modules so they can use the same shields.
CHIPINO can be programmed in any language that supports Microchip PIC which includes C language, Basic language and Assembly language compiler. Many of them are free to download.
We also now carry the books of Chuck Hellebuyck who teaches you not only how to use Microchip PICs but also teaches you the C language through his Beginner's Guide to Embedded C Programming series.
