Review of EasyPIC v7

MikroElektronika, a Belgrade, Serbia-based company is well-known for producing quality software and hardware development tools for a wide range of microcontroller families, including PIC, AVR, and ARM processors. Their mikroC Pro for PIC has always been my favorite PIC compiler, and has been extensively used in my PIC tutorials and projects published on this website, for its ease of use and rich set of built-in library routines. Today, I am reviewing MikroElektronika’s EasyPIC v7, which is the latest PIC development board in their line of EasyPIC series. I would like to thank to Newark USA for providing the EasyPIC v7 board for completing this review. – See more at:

Unpacking EasyPIC v7

EasyPIC v7 comes in a colorful and protective cardboard box that can also serve as a good storage for the development board for later use. The thing I liked most about it is that the box also contains color-printed schematics and illustrative user’s manual of EasyPIC v7 along with a DVD for installing the required drivers and programming applications. The DVD also contains demo versions of mikroElektronika’s compilers as well as plenty of code examples. The EasyPIC v7 board is packed inside an anti-static bag and an USB cable is also included in the package to connect the board to the PC.

Review of EasyPIC v7

EasyPIC v7, like its predecessors, is designed for rapid prototyping and development with Microchip’s 8-bit microcontrollers. It supports over 350 PIC microcontrollers, including PIC10F, PIC12F, PIC16F, and PIC18F series, and contains 8 DIP sockets to accommodate 8-, 14-, 18-, 20-, 28-, and 40-pin count PIC MCUs. The printed circuit board of EasyPIC v7 is extra thick (~3mm) and of high quality with clearly labeled components and pin functions. The board comes with the PIC18F45K22 microcontroller plugged in by default. Here I have summarized the main features of the EasyPIC v7 development board.

Power supply

EasyPIC v7 has a 5.0V switching power supply on board along with a 3.3V regulated output. A jumper selection is provided to select between 3.3V and 5.0V power supply for operation. Thus, it can be used to develop applications for both 3.3V and 5.0V series PIC MCUs. The board can be powered through a DC barrel jack, screw terminal block, or directly through an USB cable.
