A new 8 bit board is available with full support in the last SVN revision. Regis and André published their work this week and made a lot of work to incorporate it in Pinguino IDE.
This board uses a 18F26J50 and a new bootloader rewritten from scratch and based on the DIOLAN Bootloader.
18F26J50 is a 8 bits PIC with many features:
- 64 kbytes
- 3800 bytes of RAM
- a CTMU module ( to build capacitive sensors )
- 2 Serial port
- 2 SPI/I2C
- operating voltage from 2 to 3,6V with 5,5V tolerant input
As usual, everything is published as Open Source and Open Hardware. Feel free to build the board and give your opinion.
Kicad files, bootloader and schematic are available on the website.
