A group effort, element14, Microchip, and Matrix introduce the PIC18 Flowcode Developers Kit with the intention of lowering the barriers to programming. The kit offers a hands-on approach to electronics design using Flowcode, allegedly one of the most advanced graphical programming languages for microcontrollers. The development platform is based on a Microchip PIC18F26J50 low power, 8-bit PIC18F26J50 microcontroller and is integrated with temperature sensor, capacitor touch sensor, and a potentiometer.
