This design was targeted at the 6/8 pin PIC10F202/10F206 devices. Microchip provide a number 6 or 8 pin devices
using the same footprint, which work with this board. To make it easier for development, the board uses the 8 pin DIP
versions as it makes it easier to swap devices, something that is difficult with the SOT-23 variants.
The design aims were as shown here:
This is the assembled PCB
Compatible 8 pin PIC micro-controllers
The author has not tested all these devices, they are listed here as they have a device pinout that matches the PCB
The schematic is shown here, double click to see full size.
The PIC10F202 uses the internal 4MHz oscillator and there are 3 I/O pins and one dedicated input pin or MCLR.
The PCB design uses a single sided PCB, the size is 30x55mm and is easily produced using homebrew PCB materials
and processes. The PCB layout is shown here, double click to expand.
