Colleagues, Until now I've only worked with the 12, 16 and 17-series of PICs. There doesn't seem to be a clear and simple explanation on Microchip's website of the dsPIC series, in terms of what they are good for and when you would use them in preference to the other families. I wonder what specific strengths and weaknesses they have. Could anyone elucidate? Thanks, SteveT ----...


Best PIC family for C programming

Colleagues, In recent threads a number of you have sounded words of caution about using C for the "smaller" PICs, such as the 12- and 16-families. What would you recommend as a sensible PIC family for programming in C? To put this into context, I have used C successfully with small projects, most notably with the 16F818, and also the 12F509 and 16F84. But I'm not an expert and appre...


Setting up IO ports

Hi I'm new to pics, and have a project where I'm using a PIC10F206. I'm trying to set all I/O ports to 0 but I'm having no success. All ports seem to be high except GP2 which oscillates. My code is: #include void main() { set_tris_b(0x00); output_b(0); while(1); } I'm sure the chip is being programmed because MPLAB says it was successful. Could someo

A few people have expressed reservations about using C to program the smaller PICs, especially when the program is pretty simple. One thing that keeps coming up (and Microchip themselves say) is that PIC assembly language is easy to learn, especially as there are "only 33 instructions to learn". But I think there is a big difference between learning the PIC instructions, and actually lea...

Open collector outputs

I'm pretty new to PICs, so if I've made a silly mistake, please forgive me! Do any PICs have "open collector" type output ports? I'd like to use the ports to switch some transistors which operate at a higher voltage than the PIC's Vdd. The example I have in mind is using four output ports to control an 'H' bridge (for a bi-directional motor). The upper transistors in the 'H' are PNP ...


Driving 3.3V parts from 5V PIC

Hi, I am designing a piece of audio equipment that involves a uController, an LCD and an analog level chip. The LCD needs 5V digital signals, the level chip can only work with 3.3V digital commands. The uC can of course run on either voltage. I had this plan: run the uC and LCD from 5V, the level chip from 3.3V. Then drive the level chip control lines from the 5V uC via a resistor. ...

I just have a simple question dealing with the dsPIC30F2010. Is it possible to generate an adjustable frequency square wave (from 1MHz to 40MHz) directly out of the chip? Just in case you didn't know, I have no experience with the PIC. I am driving the PIC at 40MHz. Thanks. ___________________ Ray Xu r...@tx.rr.com DPRG member OOPic

Hi John, I see you're a ham too! I'm KM6VV. Central coast, CA. I'm starting a dual motor control project for a microbot robot. Two DC motors with encoders (Lynxmotion), and a dsPIC33FJ128MC802. I'm currently playing with application note 696 code on an 18F4620 while I wait for the dsPIC. The ds is a little different! I've not yet figured out what are the comparable settings for...
