The rcpod (Remote Controlled PIC of Doom) project is based on firmware for the PIC16C745 or PIC16C765 microcontrollers that executes I/O operations on behalf of the USB host. Included are libraries for C and Python programs to access the rcpod device, PCB layouts for rcpod devices, and example programs. It currently supports basic general-purpose I/O, pulse-width modulation, synchronous and asynchronous serial, and RS-485.
