This is a feature-loaden FLASH PIC, 8Kb FLASH code, 256 bytes data EEPROM, 368 bytes RAM, 33 I/O pins, 8 can be used as analog inputs (10-bit A/D), UART, 2 x PWM, I2C, etc. Can write its own program memory, so with a bootloader program no external programmer is required.
This is the A-version of the the older PIC-16F877-DIP. Refer to the datasheets for the (small) differences compared to the non-A version. Note that the programming algorithm is not the same as for the non-A version, so check that your programmer suports this chip.
This chip is definitely recommended as "my first PICmicro," but also check the PIC-18F452-DIP
Also check the much cheaper PIC-16F77-DIP
This chip is in a DIP housing. Suitable sockets are DIP-40-L-(5) (low-cost, flat pins) or DIP-40-Q or (high-quality, round pins)..
If you have a .hex file that you want programmed into this chip that is possible for an extra fee. Add PIC-PROGRAMMING to your order, and send me the .hex file by email. Note: the .hex file must be complete, including the configuration fuses.
When this standard chip is temporarily not available I might provide you an LF chip (extended opertaing voltage range) or an E version (extended temperature range) instead. Such chips are fully (upwards) compatible replacements for the plain F chips.Related products:
