PlayPIC – A Tutorial Board for the PIC16F84A Microcontroller
This is a new design of a tutorial board based on the popular PIC16F84A microcontroller. It features eight single leds, a 7-segment display, an LCD display and five push buttons. It is an ideal solution for the beginner to take his/her first programming steps in the world of microcontrollers. Having an in-circuit-programming (ICP) header, it can be easily reprogrammed without unplugging the microcontroller each time, provided that the programmer also supports this feature (like OziPic’er).
|RA0||JP2 – S3 – JP4|
|RA1||JP2 – S4 – JP4|

|RB3||JP2 – LED4 – 7 Seg (c) – LCD E|
|RB4||JP2 – LED5 – 7 Seg (d) – LCD DB4|
|RB5||JP2 – LED6 – 7 Seg (e) – LCD DB5|
|RB6||JP2 – LED7 – 7 Seg (f) – LCD DB6|
|RB7||JP2 – LED8 – 7 Seg (g) – LCD DB7|
- S1 switches the board on and off. When on, the indicator led LED9 is lit.
- S2 resets the microcontroller.
- S8 switches the LCD display on and off.
- S9 switches the eight individual leds AND the 7-segment display on and off.
- Push buttons S3 to S6 correspond to RA0-RA3 inputs. They are enabled or disabled by the SW2 dip switch.
- The SW1 dip switch enables or disables the following features :
- Connects RB0 (used as output) to LED1.
- Connects RB0 (used as interrupt input) to S7.
- Enables the debouncing circuit for interrupt switch S7.
- Connects RB0 (used as output) to the buzzer.
