pyMCU was created with the idea of being a simple cost effective platform to interface between the computer and the physical world using python. The heart of pyMCU is a microchip PIC 16F1939 offering 13 Digital IO Pins, 6 Analog IO Pins, 5 10-bit PWM Pins, and a 16 Pin Parallel LCD Interface. The USB Interface uses the industry standard FTDI USB to UART FT232R chip. Drivers and python module are available for Windows, OSX, and Linux.
