Introduction: Making a Breadboardable Pinguino

Recently i found that PIC microcontrollers can be used likearduinos using the pinguino hardware. so i built a pinguino which i can use. My version has the I/O pins as header in single line. 

So i an sharing some of the photos and videos of my pinguino. I also found that using the pinguino IDE may be slightly hard for some people to start with, as it is different from arduino. So i made a tutorial on how to use the IDE for first time. also do check out.


Here is the video of the pinguino on verro board

    can you please give a video tutorial for bootloading.

    I have PIC16F628A. Can I use it?

    No. Pinguino is supported for only these MCUs

    8-bit : PIC18Fx550, PIC18Fx5K50, PIC18Fx6J50 and PIC18Fx7J53 family
    32-bit : PIC32MX Mips family....


    The main reason may be it doesnot have the USB interface

    How do you get the bootloader inside the PIC?
