About the PIC Microchip category

The original maker hardware. Many a great Maker cut their teeth programming on one of the PIC family of microcontrollers from Microchip - and they’re still a popular choice for many Makers to this day.

If you haven’t heard of them before the PICAXE Microcontrollers were the Arduino’s of their time about 5 years before the Arduino was a thing! They’re still commonly found in the hands of Makers and students alike.
