PIC Family Microcontrollers

Chapter Outline

  • Study basic features in PIC architecture
  • Study PIC family MCU devices for the systems
  • Learn interrupt sources, IC ports, timers and instruction set of PIC
  • Learn MPLAB tool for integrated development environment (IDE)

An MCU has the following resources: memory, ports, serial IO (input and output) devices, timers and interrupt sources. There may be additional resources also. We learnt earlier in detail the resources in the 8-bit —8051/8031 family MCUs.

This chapter describes PIC microcontroller. The PIC stands for Programmable Microchip Intelligent Computer, also for Programmable Interface Controller. The PIC family microcontrollers (MCUs) are from Microchip technology (http://www.microchip.com ...
