I got given a few of these in 20 pin ssop but what practical use have they ?.
Electrons are typically male, always looking for any hole to get into.
trying to strangle someone who talks out of their rectal cavity will fail, they can still breath.

It's not a bad little low-pin-count microcontroller. You can pick up a pack of 10 SSOP20-to-DIP adaptors on eBay for about a quid, which makes them easier to experiment with, and with their low-power features they are useful for battery powered projects which need to fit in a limited space.

That puppy has 7 ADC channels, UART, AN5 and AN6 are the HW UART pins, and you have some DIO also, you could hook it up to a FTDI or equivalent serial to USB bridge and make a USB data acquisition board, you could use it to drive relays, use shift registers to make a matrix display board, loads of things you could do with it,

Hi Wilksey, sounds like it is interesting , I have no knowledge of Pic chips except when i used to use them for the old playstations... So it was a case of stick in programmer burn hex code and insert into ps.

Might have a look about later to find something interesting to make with one then. Thanks for the info.
