Board Concept.  

Full hardware design for the MicroMite (uMite) project can be found here:  http://geoffg.net/micromite.html

The Mick uMite PCB (from here on called MuP) was originally designed for my own purposes as a final stage PCB after a project has been developed on a prototype, or bread/Vero board. Two great fully optioned uMite PCBs can be found on the `Back Shed Forums’ designed by WhiteWizard (44pin proto.) and Zonker (a 28pin proto.), both of these PCBs are well designed and have on-board USB to TTL interfaces to facilitate communication with a PC. Further information can be found in the forums located here:   

Zonker’s 28pin                 

WhiteWizard’s 44pin       

MuP is `minimalist’ by design!

After the hard work has been done I expect the uMite to be installed in some hidden, `out of the way’ cabinet merrily doing its job never to be disturbed again. There would be no need for a USB to TTL communication interface and I have designed it to be powered by a relatively cheap USB plug pack (wall wart) 1A 5Vdc input (3v3 is generated on-board), size and cost being my main goals. MuP is only 49.5mm x 43.2mm (1.95” x 1.70”).


MuP Version 2

MuP Ver.2 has strayed a little bit from the `Minimalist ‘  perspective but I feel that the enhancements have made MuP Ver.2 a considerably better product.

MuP Ver.2 is the same physical size as its predecessor, the differences from Ver.1 are covered in the next section.

Version 2.


MuP Ver.1 was pretty popular but there were a couple of areas that needed to be addressed that enabled me to implement a few improvements to MuP.

These include:

1. Pullups for the I2C lines Dat & Clk with link options (J10,J11) to enable or disable them.

2. The addition of a 1k resistor to enable 5V TTL level Tx(in) to be used, this can be jumpered out (J9) if 3v3 TTL Tx(in) is to be used.

3. Fixed a silk screen overlay error that had the Clk and Dat labels for I2C reversed.

4.  Added a new header location (J12) to support WhiteWizard’s USB module.

Sparkfun has a USB-TTL module that could be used here but it has only 4 pins (J12 is a 5 pin header) and is missing the 5V so cannot supply power to MuP V2.      Further information can be found at:

All Maximite and MicroMite support is done on The Back Shed forum at:

You will find the MaxiMite Basic author Geoff Graham offering support there also.

All of the Micks-Mites range of items are considered available only for the hobbyist market, and are priced to suit.

(NOTE **** Most smaller quantities of Microblock products will fit into the small package)

All MGB products are manufactured by Mick Gulovsen, and are based on Geoff Graham's PIC Based MicroMite Basic Computer system. These can be programmed in MMBasic and allows for C extensions for fast routines.


The Micromite is a Microchip PIC32 microcontroller programmed with the free MMBasic firmware. These chips cost from $4 to $10 and are available in a variety of packages from 28 pins to 100 pins. When programmed with the Micromite firmware they make a powerful and easy to program microcontroller that is ideal for most hobby projects.


MMBasic is a Microsoft BASIC compatible implementation of the BASIC language with floating point, integer and string variables, arrays, long variable names, a built in program editor and many other features.

Using MMBasic you can use communications protocols such as I2C or SPI to get data from a variety of sensors. You can measure voltages, detect digital inputs and drive output pins to turn on lights, relays, etc.  Special features include the ability to use touch sensitive LCD displays, temperature sensors, distance sensors and more.


Mick has concentrated on the extremely tiny Micromite range. All of Mick's working files are located here.

All support is done via "The Back Shed" Support Forum. These products are very small, so local and international shipping-postage can be done at minimal costs.

Postage costs on these items are $3 for Australia, and $8 for the rest of the world, as they are sent in a small package. You will find further information on the shipping page during checkout.  All of these items are posted to you direct from MBG, Hillside, Melbourne, Australia.

Postage is normally default set to standard postage. You will need to set this to a small package, unless instructed by our sales dept. to do otherwise.

In order to get postage cost down to a "One size Fits All" transaction, we have made the minimum shipping cost the price of a Small Package. Please don't be offended if you get your board(s) in a standard Letter. You simply can't post off a $1 board (or a small quantity), add the price of a basic letter stamp cost, and make enough profit for our time and trouble for this transaction. Consider it like a flag fall on a Taxi meter, as it has to cover basic shipping and handling.
