If you want to get started with the E-blocks system then we offer a Starter pack that contains all the core blocks you need. The E-blocks Starter Pack contains a USB PICmicro Multiprogrammer (with Ghost Technology), a Switch board, an LED board, an LCD block, a dual 7-segment display block, a Prototype board, a Patch board, a Terminal board, an SPI and D/A board, A sensors mother board with analogue temperature sensor and digital temperature sensor, a metal backplane with nuts and bolts, a power supply and rugged trays and foam insert for storage.
The starter pack can be used for learning and for developing a number of E-blocks projects. For learners the Starter pack is compatible with our 'An introduction to microcontroller programming' course which is available on our web site. This 50 hour course teaches the basics of developing projects based on microcontrollers using our Flowcode software. The Starter pack is also compatible with MPLAB, and other compilers and assemblers that produce hex for the PICmicro microcontroller, and is flexible hardware platform for learning C code, Assembly and other languages. A free utility which can send hex code into the microcontroller on the USB PICmicro Multiprogrammer - Mloader - is available as a download from our web site. A 40 pin 16F1937 PICmicro microcontroller is included.
This product is supplied at a discount to the sum of the costs of the individual parts.
This product includes an EB006v9 multiprogrammer which, when combined with Flowcode 6 or above, provides access to the advanced In-Circuit Test and In-Circuit Debug features found in our revolutionary Ghost Technology. To find out more about the capabilities of Ghost, click here:
