The LAB-X3 provides a full complement of hardware peripherals for an 18-pin microcontroller such as the PIC16F84A or PIC16F648A.

The LAB-X3 contains the circuitry required by the PICmicro MCU to operate: 5-voltpower supply, oscillator, reset circuit, as well as an RS-232 serial port, 2-line x 20-character LCD module, and basic analog and digital I/O. The board is designed to accommodate 18-pin MCUs, including the popular PIC16F84A.

Many different projects may be created using the LAB-X3. Some examples include LCD clock, servo controller, LCD back pack, and many more. TheLAB-X3 can run programs written in assembler, C and PicBasic or PicBasic Pro. The in-circuit programming connector allows the resident PICmicro MCU to be reprogrammed on the fly (requires flash device) using programmers that support this feature like our melabs USB Programmer.

It is recommended the LAB-X3 be used with the 18-pin PIC16F648A or PIC16F84A (available separately). These flash devices may be reprogrammed again and again. Sample programs are included.

The LAB-X3 is available in either assembled or bare PCB form. A parts list and schematic are included.


  • Inputs: 1 pushbutton, 1 potentiometer
  • Outputs: 2 LEDs, 1 RC servo connector, 2x20 LCD module
  • I/O: RS232 interface
  • Misc: Reset button (may be programmed as input with the 16F62x MCUs), 5-volt regulator, 4MHz crystal oscillator
  • In-circuit programming connector
  • Prototyping area for additional circuits
  • Available assembled as a bare PCB
  • Size is 4.9" x 3.30"

Note: The 16F87 and 16F88 USART pins do not match the connections on the LAB-X3. For these particular PICmicro MCUs, the LAB-X18 Experimenter Board is recommended.

Compatible with the following microcontrollers:

PIC16C554, 16C558, 16C620(A),16C621(A), 16C622(A), 16C71, 16C710, 16C711, 16C712, 16C715, 16C716,16C717, 16CE623, 16CE624, 16CE625, 16F627, 16F627A, 16F628, 16F628A,16F648A, 16F716, 16F818, 16F819, 16F83, 16F84, 16F84A
