HelvePic32 Story

We love the Arduino Platform, but at a certain point, the Arduino was not powerful enough. So we looked around and stumbled into a description on how to build a microcontroller on a breadboard.

This is possible with an Arduino as well but you always need a USB adapter board (FOCA) to connect it to the PC. With the PIC32MX250 porcessor, USB comes on board and makes the creation of a board solely using PTH parts possible.

The idea is to provide a board that kids and newcomers to electronics can solder and build without relying on SMD technologies.

In the meantime, we are designing a SMD based board to have it produced in a factory for those who do not want to solder.
