Making a Breadboardable Pinguino

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

    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
