Re: Old FRC Controllers (Pre-NI)

Microchip sample site:

(You're allowed to get 2 samples every 30 days)

To help you make your decision, the list of PIC families:

(I'd go for a PIC18 MCU, they're designed to be programmed in C)

Make sure you chose the PDIP package, otherwise you'll have to surface mount it (instead of using a breadboard).

I chose this programmer, still haven't got it yet so I can't tell you how good it is:
