This chapter introduces the PIC24 instruction set architecture by exploring the data memory structure and data transfer instructions of the PIC24 microcontroller (μC). The use of the MPLAB® Integrated Design Environment for assembly and simulation of PIC24 programs is also discussed.
After reading this chapter, you will be able to:
Describe the data and program memory architecture of the PIC24 μC.
Convert PIC24 instruction mnemonics to machine code and vice versa.
