PIC Microcontroller Tutorials

These are Tiny Chips that integrate the Microprocessor and Peripheral chips in a compact size with low power consumption. PIC Microcontrollers from Microchip are the evolved computing digital devices that go into many gadgets and intelligent equipment. These are easy to program and reprogram and even protect your code or IP.

PIC Microcontroller Tutorials
The PIC has the math power. The memory, the I/O ports are integrated in the chip like 8051. Some may remember that Microprocessors like 8085 and Z80 had all these functions in chips outside and used to consume more power. Then came CMOS and better IC technology. The 8051(now avr, atmega)and PIC Micro are entire boards in one chip.

PIC microcontrollers for beginners too - Author: Nebojsa Matic

The above tutorial gives the History of computers, microprocessors and the details of PIC Micro's Internals.

"..what microcontrollers are and how they operate. Numerous illustrations and practical examples along with a detailed description of the PIC16F887 microcontroller will make you enjoy your work with PIC MCUs."

Starting with PICmicro controllers by Wouter van Ooijen. PICmicro is the brand name for a family of microcontrollers manufactured by Microchip. The PIC acronym stood for Peripheral Interface Controller, but recently Microchip has renamed their chips to PICmicro. Within this family the flash-microcontrollers (16×84, 16f62x, 16f87x) are ideal devices for hobbyists and low-volume professionals.

Learn to program in C with FED - This manual will take you through the process of learning C from variables through constants to pointers and then structures and unions. Most of the examples are standalone and are as small as possible to enable the purpose and effect to be easily understood.

The PICList -Schematics and Code

The PICList is a collection of people interested in the Microchip PIC and other similar processors who have requested that email sent to the PICList email address be forwarded to them. From the mass mind of these people the following have grown:

The PICList -Schematics and Code

 PIC 18F4550 USB 16F877A IO RS232 Eval Board

PIC 18F4550 USB 16F877A IO RS232 Eval Board

The design is essentially a double evaluation board for the chips 18F4550 and 16F877A. It contains also a MAX232A serial module having two transmitters and two receivers with the ability to connect either to 4550 or 877 microcontroller. Each microcontroller port ends up to a pin header in order to give interconnection capabilities to the board for future experiments.

Electronic Microcontroller Projects of Mast

Here are BASIC-52 projects and some Atmel AVR projects.and audio projects like Balanced microphone preamp with phantom power. It also has the old PIC Archive.

Electronic Projects of Mast

Projects with Basic 52
  • Using DS1621 temperature sensor chip with BASIC-52 (Temperature logger)
  • Using ADS1286 12-bit ADC with BASIC-52 
  • Cheap R2R DAC for BASIC-52 with performance analysis 
  • Using RF modules for wireless communication with BASIC-52 
  • Sinewave generator with AD9835 DDS, driven by BASIC-52
Electronic Mmicrocontroller Projects of Mast

My first 8052 BASIC Project

"So, first of all, you need a 80C52 or compatible microcontroller. There are several producers, I used Atmel's AT89C52 which is FLASH based, so it can be reprogrammed (as opposed to 80C52 which is OTP part). Any 89C52 or 87C52 part will do fine for experimenting, but if you do not have a programmer for 8051 family of MCU-s, Atmel also has a AT89S8252 (8052 compatible chip with 2K of EEPROM built in) with a serial programming interface which makes building a programmer much easier."

Simple PWM controller - with 555

This 555 timer based PWM controller features almost 0..100% pulse width regulation using R1, while keeping the oscillator frequency relatively stable. The frequency is dependent on values of R1 and C1, values shown will give a frequency range from about 170 to 200 Hz. Any 555 chip will do, CMOS is fine as well.

Local copy of David Tait's PIC archive

Most of these files are related in some way to my simple PIC16C84 programmer for IBM compatible PCs (download pic84pgm.zip and pic84v05.zip). You may find one or two packages that have more to offer though.

Pinguino - Arduino-compatible for PIC

Pinguino is an Arduino-compatible open source hardware electronics prototyping platform. It supports different 8- and 32-bit microcontrollers, all with built-in USB module

New library : I2C 16-bit I/O expander #Pinguino can now drive Microchip MCP23O17 / MCP23S17 16-bit input/output port expanders with i2c interface, interrupt output and cascadable for up to 8 devices on one bus.

Pinguino - Arduino-compatible for PIC

Pinguino - Arduino-compatible for PIC

Pinguino Software is an Integrated Development Environement (IDE) which gives everyone the ability to write, compile and upload programs on a Pinguino board.

Pinguino comes with a USB Bootloader. This small program running inside the microcontroller is responsible for transferring your application from your PC to the microcontroller memory and handing over the control to this program afterwards.

Amicus an Arduino Like for Microchip PIC

Amicus is a multifunction development system inspired by the popular Arduino board, however, the Amicus board uses a Microchip PIC microcontroller instead of an Atmel AVRtm type.

Amicus an Arduino Like for Microchip PIC

Amicus an Arduino Like for Microchip PIC

Extension boards add functionality to the Amicus, these boards are known as shields. A shield is a PCB that fits over the Amicus board and provides extra functionality, such as Ethernet, Motor control, LCD, Smartcard, GPS, GSM etc…

Amicus is supported by an integrated development environment (AMICUS IDE).
  • Proton Basic source code editor - with colour syntax highlighter
  • Compiler - Full version of Proton Basic for the PIC Microcontroller with full integration to MPLAB for debugging, if required.
  • Programmer - automated programming of the Amicus Board - no external programmer required.

Multi-Instrument Digital Assistant - PIC16F84A

Multi-Instrument Digital Assistant - PIC16F84A - "It contains four instruments in one unit: logic probe, single channel logic state analyzer, frequency counter and serial code receiver."

The Engineer's Assistant - Erik Grindheim

"This compact instrument is intended to be a digital laboratory tool for hardware and, in some cases, software debugging. It contains four instruments in one unit: logic probe, single channel logic state analyzer, frequency counter and serial code receiver"

Multi-Instrument Digital Assistant – PIC16F84A

Serial code receiver The serial code receiver receives 42 bytes and displays them in both HEX and ASCII. The baud rate is selectale in 8 steps from 1200 to 115200.

Logic state analyzer This is a one-channel logic state analyzer. It fetches 300 single bit samples in a selectable rate from 25ms to 1┬ÁS (40 Hz to 1 MHz in 16 steps).

Frequency counter The frequency counter displays the frequency with up to 8 digits on the LCD. The refresh rate is 500ms.

Logic probe The low and high logic levels are displayed by LEDs which are OFF if the probe tip is floating.
