MicroMite Explore 100 - FULL KIT OF PARTS

This is a full kit of parts for Geoff's Explore-100 TFT board.  It includes everything you need to assemble a fully operational board.  The kit includes the four-layer PCB, and THE SURFACE-MOUNT PARTS HAVE BEEN FITTED FOR YOU so you don't have to worry about soldering these if you are not too keen on SMD.  The PIC32MX470F512L (whew!) QFP chip at the heart of this product is the 120MHz part, and it comes pre-programmed with the latest version of MMBASIC, so once you assemble the kit, the unit is ready to use right away - no HEX file programming or PICkit3 required.

The latest model(version 1D) includes an optional 1455 USB connection to the MM Console, and it's built-in ICSP so you can program the PIC32 chip WITHOUT a PicKit-3 or Microchip's IPE!  All you need is the free pic32prog utility to easily upgrade the MM firmware.  The 1D boards also now include a micro-SD card slot on-board, so no more need for CON10 or the external add-on SD card kit, and said kit is not supported on the 1D circuit boards.  If you want the optional 1455 chip, please add that to your shopping cart from the options above - select the DIL version to suit the 1D E100 board used in this kit.  Otherwise, you can use the standard console connection or a CP2102 USB module if preferred.  The footprint is still provided for those wishing to continue to use those.  DO NOT TRY TO USE BOTH THE 1455 CHIP AND THE CP2102 AT THE SAME TIME!  That will not work.  You must choose to use one or the other.

The board with the pre-fitted SMD will be supplied sealed in an anti-static bag, and constructors are reminded that full anti-static precautions need to be observed when handling this board outside of it's static sheilding bag.  Incorrect handling of the board or assembly of this kit is not covered by any warranty offered by Rictech Ltd.

The kit DOES NOT include the 5" LCD module.  These can be had very easily from eBay or AliExpress for about US$50 including shipping - search for 5" TFT SSD1963.

This kit DOES NOT include the RTC & MEMORY module, the Piezo for the touch-click or the USB-Serial module for above CON6 as these are optional extras.

Shipping options below, are the kit plus the shipping option, not just the cost of shipping.  Sorry for the confusion this has caused some visitors.
