The ACE Kit is the perfect solution to to an advanced engineer's development needs. Along with a prototyping board, it includes the powerful Integrated Development Environment with compiler support for Microchip's PIC® PIC10, PIC12 and PIC16 families and an ICD-U80 in-circuit programmer/debugger that supports C-aware real time debugging. The ACE Kit utilizes the CCS Software Prototyping Board - A PIC® MCU designer's best friend. The prototyping board includes a standard 40-pin socket to access connectors and expanders to develop a variety of applications before the final target platform is designed. Add on compiler support for PIC18 and PIC24 devices. (PIC24 and dsPIC® devices need to be 5V.)

The Software Prototyping Board (Size: 6.625" x 3.875") includes:
