A programming course using the PICkit 2 and the Low Pin Count Demo Board
Thursday, 18 October 2012
The scope of this blog will be defined initially by the PICkit2 and the Low Pin Count demo board that came with it. So the first code examples will be written for the 16F690 that came with the board. Then I'll try other midrange microcontrollers on the LPC demo board.
We'll work our way through the on-chip peripherals by flashing an LED in as many different ways as possible using each of the hardware elements in turn. We'll look at areas where you can get caught out so that you don't fall into that trap when you're writing more complex programs.
