Programming a Picaxe 08m chip

After I got my Arduino I felt the urge to brush up on my general electronics knowledge. The last time I’d really played with any circuits was back in about 1994 when I was studying my Technology GCSE – which now is quite a long time ago. So I picked up a copy of Make: Electronics and started reading through it. Sadly I was a bit lazy and just read through the book, rather than actually building many of the ...

Microcontroller In Circuit Serial Programming (ICSP) with Microchip PIC

In Circuit Serial Programming is a method of directly programming a Microchip PIC or Atmel AVR while in they are connected to a circuit, as opposed to programming the chip ahead, and only then soldering it to a circuit. There are many benefits to ICSP, but also some important design considerations which I will try to highlight. In circuit programming has many advantages: It shortens the development cycle – ...

Free programming software for various of the MicroChip PIC series of micro-controllers by Nigel Goodwin.

Following the name change to WinPicProg I've now bought the domain name winpicprog.co.uk so all future updates will be under this address, with links from my old pages. I'm happy to try and help with any problems people have, either via email or (preferably) via the new PHPBB support forum, where other users will be able to take advantage of the answers. I've added an FAQ page to the support forum, and the ...

Input programming activity

The previous activities showed you how to make the microcontroller activate outputs. This activity demonstrates how to receive inputs from externally connected devices. The input programs also introduce the concept of abstraction—the ability of a program to refer to I/O circuits using assigned variable names rather than their specific hardware addresses. What you should know before starting CHRP related inf ...

PIC Microcontrollers – Programming in C

The purpose of this chapter is to provide basic information that one needs to know in order to be able to use microcontrollers successfully in practice. This chapter, therefore, doesn’t contain any super interesting program or device schematic with amazing solutions. Instead, the following examples are better proof that program writing is neither a privilege nor a talent issue, but the ability of simply put ...
