This was the 1st PCB that I have ever made. I wanted to gain experience with designing development boards around a microcontroller.


This board can be powered from a USB Micro-B connection or through the VBUS and GND header pins. The GPIO pins of the PIC16F84A are all exposed on the other header pins. The ICSP interface was also given a header pin block for uploading code to the microcontroller via a PIC programmer. A blinking LED was added to indicate when the board is receiving power on VBUS.
