PIC Tutorial - LED Board

LED Board

This is the LED Board, a simple array of eight LED's connected to all pins of one port. As well as being used for simple output tutorials, it can be used as a debugging aid, by using it to display values at certain points in a program. Although it's labelled as connecting to PortB, it can also be connected to PortA if required.

This is the top side of the LED board, it's built on a piece of Veroboard 15 strips wide by 24 holes high, it consists simply of eight LED's, eight resistors, and the connector. This board has only one wire link, across the top side of the connector, to connect the ground connection of the LED's.
The bottom of the board, it has only seven track cuts, again they are marked with blue circles.
