A – is a DC power adaptor socket for user to plug in DC adaptor. The input voltage should be
ranged from 7 to 15V.
B – is a 2510 2 way connector for battery input. The battery voltage should be between 7 to
15V. Please ensure the polarity of voltage is correctly plugged before power up SK18A. The
“+” and “-” is have been labeled at the side of connector.
C – is a 2x5 box header for UIC00A, USB ICSP PIC Programmer.
D – consist of 2 LEDs (connected to RB6 and RB7) as active High output for PIC MCU.
These LEDs are controllable from PIC MCU.
E – is a slide switch to On/Off the power supply from DC adaptor or Battery connector.
Pushing the switch down will ON SK18A.
F – is a 5V voltage regulator 1A maximum.
G – 18 pin IC socket for user to plug in any 18 pin PIC16F MCU (8 bit). Of course the IC
package should be PDIP. Please ensure the first pin is at the top side.

H – Consist of 14 lines of header pin and turn pin. It is fully compatible between SK18A.
Turn pin offer simple way to check voltage with multi-meter probe. 14 pins of PIC MCU are
extended out to these pin except OSC (connected to crystal), RB6 and RB7 (connected to
LEDs and UIC00A box Header).
I – is on board 5V indicator LED. It will light ON as long as the input power is correctly
connected and the slide switch is ON.
J – is a push button with the function of Reset for PIC MCU.
K – is a development area for user to solder electronic components as input or output for PIC
MCU.

5. INSTALLATION (HARDWARE)
SK18A come with UIC00A - ICSP USB programmer connector to offer simple way for
downloading program. From user feedback and experience, using UIC00A ICSP programmer
is very easy and save plenty of development time.
5.1 Loading Program Using UIC00A Programmer
Connect SK18A as shown in following figure.
From
UIC00A
Pin 1 of
PIC
SK18A should be powered either from battery or DC adaptor. Plug 18 pins PIC16F
microcontroller, please ensure the first pin of microcontroller is plugged correctly. Power up
SK18A by turning the slide switch to “ON”. Now, the hex code is ready to be loaded to
SK18A. For the usage of UIC00A, please refer to UIC00A User’s Manual.
RB7 and RB6 have been connected to UIC00A connector; both these pins are used for ICSP.
User is advice not to use these pin as input. Even when using as output, RB7 or RB6 pin are
recommended to be used in controlling non critical device such as LED, LCD, 7 segments or
buzzer. It is recommended to isolated ICSP signals from application circuit by using series
resistor (range 220 ohm and above). Please refer to UIC00A User’s Manual for further
details. Hence, in SK18A, RB7 and RB6 were designed as active High LED output.

6. GETTING STARTED
SK18A is ready to be plug and use, no extra driver or software is necessary. It is a hardware
platform, for the use of UIC00A, please install the necessary driver or configure the correct
setting in window. SK18A is ready be used to start the electronics interface.
The I/O of the microcontroller can be accessed through few methods:
1. I/O port (to electronic components)
• Connect the components that are needed onto the I/O port.
• Connect the electronic device to PIC MCU I/O port through Header pin.
• Extend the I/O port to development area using jumper wire.
• User may also solder the necessary interface to PCB like ordinary donut
board.

To Header pin
2. I/O port (to multi-meter)
• Put the multi-meter probe on the turn pin to check the voltage.
