SCALAE II - what is it?
SCALAE is a PIC Microcontroller based automation platform that allows the avid hobbiyst and professioal user to build real world applications. The unit is designed to support the PIC16F1827. This, the smallest in a  family of automation systems is highly capable with many on board peripherals, digital IO, A2D, Serial coms, etc
Features . . .

  • Internal PSU for Opto and operational needs
  • Internal ICSP Programming Header
  • Reset button
  • Power LED
SCALAE is designed to facilitate automated applications The compact design is suitable for small applications where a cost effective and realiable system is needed. LDMICRO is used to create the software which is then flashed to the device as per normal.
Industrialized Automated Applicationss
Embedded applications range from standalone systems which control a single element, to wired or wireless applications interconnected for reporting and monitoring. SCALAE are multipurpose, cost effective and well supported tool with an efwctive tool chain that will assist in completing projects and getting products to market.
