that isnt actually a microcontroller . . . its a microcontroller programmer . . .

the very first sentence on the overview page:
"Suitable for programming Microchip2 FLASH PIC™ microcontrollers"

but it does come with a seperate microcontroller IC:
"Kit includes a PIC16F627 Flash Microcontroller that can be re-programmed up to 1000 times for experimenting at will"

i wouldnt recommend it . . .
