Radix - Nano |- Versatile PIC development for 28 PIN PICs

The Radix Nano is a compact and versatile PIC development PCB, economized for size and portability available in two variants. Supporting the 16F | 18 F 28PIN range of devices, the PCB delivers an efficient and effective development experience. The PCB includes USB UART (useful for boot-loading), onboard power supply, ICSP header and all IO tracked to headers. Available with a selection of devices, see below for device options.

Radix - Nano |- PIN OUTs

The Radix's ergonomic layout allows for ease of use, improving the development experience. The PINs are well-marked and easily accessed through headers. The two options available allow for either a pin or a socket header depending on the needs of the project. Complement the project with a breadboard and a few components for an educational learning experience or a fulfilling hobby project.

Radix Nano - what is it?
Radix-Nano is a PIC Microcontroller development platform that allows the avid hobbiyst and professioal user to build applications. The PCB is designed to support the PIC16F  & 18F 28 PIN devices. This family of PIC devices is highly capable with many on board peripherals, digital IO, A2D, Serial coms, etc
Features . . .

  • Auxilary 5v0 PSU
  • USB-UART, self powered
  • Reset button
  • Power LED
  • All IO tracked to headers
  • ICSP header
Radix-Nano is designed to facilitate rapid prototyping as a key feature. The compact design is suitable for use with a bread board, and is powered directly from a USB Type connector. A two pin header is available for an auxilary power connection if needed.
Deploy Applications
Embedded applications range from standalone systems which control a single element, to wired or wireless applications interconnected for reporting and monitoring. Radix-Nano is an ideal, cost effective and well supported tool with an efficient tool chain that will assist in completing projects and getting products to market.
