USB PIC Programmer : PICKit2

Microchip's PICKit2 is much more comfortable,reliable and powerful than the other programmers that we can find all over internet. It is a USB based ICSP (In Circuit Serial Programming) programmer. Since it is a first release, Microchip published all the resources of PICKit2 public, which includes hardware schematics and all source code of softwares used. Through this any one can add features, fix bugs and modify source code. Documents and other supporting files of PICKit2 are available at Microchip's Website. We have simplified...

Using Push Button Switch with PIC Microcontroller

Introduction This article is meant for beginners in the field of microcontrollers. When I started with microcontrollers, as everyone I also need to learn how to interface a switch with microcontroller. Here we use PIC Microcontroller 16F877A and MikroC Pro compiler. This tutorial assumes you have basic knowledge about programming PIC Microcontroller, else you read the article Blinking LED using PIC Microcontroller. Push to On Switch Push to Off Switch In this tutorial we use a push button switch, when we press on it an...

LED Chaser using PIC Microcontroller

LED Chaser is a simple project for beginners that can build using PIC microcontroller. In this 8 LED are running like a Ring Counter. It is very simple and you can create different patterns as you like just by modifying the MikroC program. Here I am using PIC16F877A, one of the most popular PIC microcontroller. This tutorial is on the assumption that, you have basic knowledge in mikroC and Proteus. If you haven't please go to this tutorial. MikroC Code void main() { ...

Blinking LED using PIC Microcontroller – MikroC

Welcome to the world of PIC Microcontrollers. You are in the right place if you are a beginner in the filed of microcontrollers. MikroC is the best compiler for beginners as it contains built in functions for most of the commonly used tasks. But MikroC is less efficient and the hex file generated will be large size compared to other compilers. So I suggest you to use Hi-Tech C compiler by Microchip after you get familiar with microcontrollers. Note...

Microchip to Increase 25% Performance of dsPIC(R) DSCs

Microchip Inc. is a leading  manufacture of micro-controller,  Flash IP and analog solutions, memory etc and provides low cost easy way for product development. Microchip has announced a 25% performance increase on its dsPIC33F  "GS" series of Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) for Switched Mode Power Supply ( SMPSs). Its features includes on-chip peripherals for digital power applications such as, Analog Comparator, Pulse Width Modulation and Digital to Analog Converter modules. It also provides 5o MIPS performance. It can support many applications such as Uninterrupted Power Supplies (UPS),...
