Using the well-designed FT232R USB/RS232/BoB (110553) serial bridge and "PICkit 2 18-Pin" demo board as hardware & PC software interface included!

The project consists of communication software using the .NET class FTD2XX_NET to interface with FT232R chip, located in USB / RS232 bridge, previously published by Elektor's Magazine .
To expand the capabilities of the module, a 18 pins PIC microcontroller is mounted on the "PIC KIT 2 Demo Board".
The PIC demo board has six pin connector interface for MPLAB ICD 3 or other popular In-Circuit Debbuger from Microchip.
