This is for the PCB only. You will need to solder one SMD part (a Mini USB socket).
It performs two main functions:
- 1> A USB-to-Serial convertor – providing a link between your computer and a MicroMite
- 2> A PIC32 programmer – allowing you to update the MMBASIC firmware in your MicroMite without the need for expensive programmers
The MicroBridge is built around a PIC16(L)F1454/5 micro-controller, requiring just a handful of other components to complete the module (see below).
This is for the PCB only. Dimensions: 50mm x 23mm
The MicroBridge emulates the MicroChip MCP2200. Download the latest driver from the MicroChip website (under ‘Documentation’, then ‘Software’).
NOTE: Windows 10 should have the driver already installed.
To assemble a fully working module you will require:
1 x MicroBridge PCB
1 x MicroBridge PIC micro-controller
1 x MCP1700-3302E/TO (3v3 vReg)
1 x 1K
1 x 100nF
2 x 10uF
1 x 3mm (Red) LED
1 x 6-way 0.1″ (2.54mm) single-row Female socket
1 x 5-way 0.1″ (2.54mm) single-row Male header
1 x Tactile switch
1 x Mini USB Socket (Type-B, SMD mount)
