Crafting a Microcontroller Circuit: From Design to Programming

Official Assignment Description For this week’s project, the task was to create a board, which was relatively straightforward once I got the hang of EAGLE’s idiosyncrasies. Afterward, the challenge was to instruct the board to perform a specific task, a process that proved to be quite frustrating. Given my prior experience with Arduino programming, I […]

PIC18F252 Programming

PIC18F252 Programming

1. Introduction This investigation was started after I ordered the free sample kit for the Circuit Cellar contest, called Mad Dash for Flash Cash. There seems to be many ways to program the device. Here I have investigated two ways of programming the PIC18F252. 2. In-Circuit Serial Programming™ The Microchip document Programming the PIC18FXX2/FXX8, describes

PICKit3 Programming With MPLABX

PICKit3 Programming With MPLABX

The PICKit3 is microchip’s newest official PIC programmer and while people argue about how good it is, this programmer has never done me wrong. I upgraded away from the old ICD2 clone programmer that I had used for years when I saw that microchip sells their PICKit3 for under $50 and so now I’ll pass

Setting up the PIC Microcontroller

Setting up the PIC Microcontroller

The following programs are examples that I use for teaching the programming of 8-bit PIC microcontrollers. A good reference is the book “Designing Embedded Systems with PIC microcontrollers: Principles and Applications” by Tim Wilmshurst. The datasheet for the PIC is also a good reference for information on the bits for each memory address register in
