This doesn't include all components.

The MBG MuP-VT V2 is NOT compatible with the MuP3 (well it will work without the U2SP, but that defeats the purpose of a MuP3)

Board Concept.  

MuP-VT is a small 49.5mm x 49.5mm PCB that is based on Geoff Graham’s ASCII Video Terminal (AVT), which is a VT100 terminal PCB based on a PIC32MX250F128B microprocessor. The AVT can communicate via a USB cable to a PC and appears to the PC as a serial port.  
Full hardware design for the ASCII Video Terminal project can be found here: 
MuP-VT is designed to plug into MuP and, indeed, will not function without out it as power is sourced from the 3v3 regulator that is catered for on MuP. 
MuP-VT connects to MuP via 3 female headers that are mounted on the underside of the PCB (J3, J5 & J8). 5v power is routed from the Mini USB connector, J12, transferred to MuP (via J5) and 3v3, in turn, is transferred back up J5 to MuP-VT.

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.
