This an 18F445 PIC microcontroller, pre-programmed with an USB bootloader. The use of this bootloader is described in the book $link-pic-book-4-2e by Bert van Dam.
The DB057-Kit is a suitable kit with PCB for this chip.
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)..
