The PIC16F648A controller Kit has primarily been designed as a PIC Micro controller and interface for the AD9851 DDS VFO and I/Q DDS Kits. The Kit can be used as a general purpose Micro controller board to suit your own DDS, or other Project using your own software.  The board allows for interfacing of a 4x4 Keypad, LCD Display, and various input and output circuitry using on board Headers. The Kit is designed to use a PIC16F648A, and most pins are available on the header connections around the outside of the board. Many other PIC16F6XX series chips can also be used on this board.

For a low cost DDS solution using the low cost AD9850 Chinese DDS modules, refer to the DDS-VFO page that has more information on what is required.
