For this course you are also required to purchase the Microchip Microstick II for dsPIC33F and PIC24H. This inexpensive hardware will allow you to develop most software using your own PC/laptop. The hardware can be brought to the lab to interface with computers in the lab and the lab equipment. The Microstick II supports all the PIC24H processors, including the processor that will be used in lab.
You will also be required to purchase various electronic components and connectors for lab/class use. A complete list of these components is found at ECE383 Spring 2017 Lab Components.pdf.
