The BeagleBoard, capabale as it is, is not a standard PC, and thus beginning to work with is involves some non trivial steps. The first step, naturally, is to get keyboard, mouse and monitor output. The second step is to get network controll (preferably Ethernet, but a Serial connection is fine for the beginning as [...]
This circuit can program any MicroChip processor – from 6 pins to 40 pins processors.The programmer supports: PIC12,PIC16,PIC18,dsPIC24 ,dsPIC30 families, and uses an ICSP header thus not requireing to remove the PIC from the circuit each time it needs to be programmed.
Development of a fully capable Microchip PIC development board that includes various kinds of peripherals: keypad, LCD screen, USB, infra-red, RF, RS232 UART, I2C, SPI, SMBus.
