Introduction to PIC – PIC Microcontroller Tutorials – Welcome to the start of the PIC Tutorial. Below is a diagram showing the pin-outs of the PIC 16F We will. This tutorial assumes you have a PIC16F84 device programmer for Step 2 above. .. PC and PIC // – PIC sends message to PC serially #include 16F Introduction to Microcontrollers – Getting Started with PIC16F84A In this article, I will be explaining PIC16F84A – an eight bit microcontroller from Microchip.

Although only 5 DIP positions are used because Port A has only five 16f84x linesall eight were wired. To configure interrupts or other hardware functions are setup by configuring various bits in selected registers, in particular here the INTCOM register. We will not be including any internal architecture diagrams, as this may only lead to confusion. Welcome to the start of the PIC Tutorial. To enable any interrupt the SET bit 7 to 1 in the interrupt control register.

So, we have one 5-bit directional port where each bit can be configured as Input or Output. Once SET no further interrupts can occur until the bit is cleared to 0. The resulting HEX file syLed.

This is another clock input, rutorial operates an internal timer. The number following RA is the bit number 0 to 4.

Introduction to PIC Microcontroller

RA is a bidirectional port. The PIC circuit features 0. Jameco has every part cited in the table – Neighborhoold Radio Shacks typically have the proto boards in stock and are comparatively cheaper than similiar boards from Jameco. Great, we have the interrupts programmed and ready to go what’s next? RB is a second bidirectional port. T0CK1 This is another clock input, which operates an internal timer.


Here I’ll start with hardware interrupts, which add incredible power to these low-cost devices. A loop can be implemented to increment a counter.

PIC16F84 Fundamentals

That is, it can be configured as an input or an output. At tutroial glance, the book can appear difficult to read but it really isn’t and I totally recommend it tutorila understanding the assembly language statements given in the above program. The resulting HEX file hellodip. I’ll be looking direct examples of what we just discussed elsewhere. You can see the range of their microcontrollers here.

Tutoriaal are going to concentrate on the 16F84 PIC. The left photo below shows a part layout that works well. This is what really goes on “under the hood” of microcontrollers. This pin is used to erase the memory locations inside the PIC i. Once you have learnt how to program one type of PIC, learning the rest is easy. Here you can either buy a kit of parts or a ready made unit. Some highlights and clarifications towards circuit construction are given next. This tutorrial an input pin which can be monitored.

This is often referred to as a “flag” bit for testing. Next, we will look at how to connect up a simple circuit for PIC development. INT This is an input pin which can be monitored.


If the pin goes high, we can cause tutorixl program to restart, stop or any other single function we desire. I use that part because it’s easier to illustrate, but everything here applies to other PICs that simply have more interrupt devices to choose from.

These are RISC microcontrollers with 35 instructions. There are only 35 instructions to learn, and it is the cheapest way to program the PICs, as you do not need any 16f4a software other than the freebies.

Again, we won’t be using this one much either. This is a general discussion of hardware interrupts.

Software for programming the PIC can also be downloaded from this site, under Download. The following photo shows the layout used Example 1: I’d highly advise doing that. This converts the program that you write into a format 16r84a the PIC understands. The PIC Assembly program that does this follows.

Either 16g84a will do, as they both result in the same thing – program a PIC. To report broken links or to submit your projects please send email to Webmaster.

The next thing you will need is an assembler. By releasing the ZIF socket’s lever, the chip is easily removed by hand.
