LAB-X Experimenter Boards are set up to work seamlessly with our compilers and programmers.
“The LAB-X1 contains the circuitry required by the PICmicro to operate: 5-volt power supply, oscillator, reset circuit, as well as additional application circuits. The crystal controlled oscillator includes jumpers to set speeds of 4MHz, 8MHz, 10MHz, 12MHz, 13.32MHz, 16MHz and 20MHz.
Application circuits include a switch matrix, potentiometers, LEDs, LCD module, serial EEPROMS, real time clock, temperature sensors, servo connectors, RS232 interface, RS485 interface, IR interface and speaker. A prototyping area is also included in case we missed your favorite circuit.”

Proton BASIC Compiler Development Suite and supporting Hardware development platforms. Proton Basic and the supporting hardware is for use with PIC microcontrollers.These development systems even extend to Ethernet and Wi-Fi.
Proton BASIC Compiler Development Suite
Proton IDE is a professional and powerful visual Integrated Development Environment (IDE) which has been designed specifically for the Proton Plus compiler. Proton IDE accelerates product development in a comfortable user environment without compromising performance, flexibility or control.
Proton Net – Networking for PIC microcontrollers.
The PROTON-NET development system is an Internet/Ethernet prototyping board using the PIC® 16F877 microcontroller and Networking Firmware. The firmware was developed for the Crownhill Proton-Net board by Jeremy Bentham of Iosoft Ltd. based on the principles demonstrated in his book TCP/IP Lean: Web Servers for Embedded Systems.
Crownhill Associates Ltd.
Crownhill’s offices and R&D facilities are based 15 miles north of Cambridge City, England, just outside of the small city of Ely. Our facility is located in a rural setting, in the heart of the Fen Land…
They manufacture and sell PIC microcontroller Development tools, such as the Proton Development Board and the Proton Development Suite designed for PIC BASIC code development.
These valuable learning materials are partly derived from Robot Builder’s Guide of Fred Martin, the course notes at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Wide Skill Spectrum by Building a Robot
When you build a robot, you are dealing with Mechanical, Electrical, Electronic and Computer Technologies with the Interfacing.
The improvement in the Wireless Communication, Low Power Hi-Speed Semiconductors coupled with compact gigabytes of Flash/HDD may help build a Creative Robot with a smart brain.

J-Bot Robot Kit
“This robot can roam around freely without supervision. The PING ultrasonic sensor will detect any objects in its way and drive around them. The onboard Arduino UNO microcontroller board (not included) can be coded differently so you can adjust your J-Bot to function to your specific commands. Provide hours of fun for the beginner or intermediate robotician in your life!”
