In the past i have used the 16 series of PIC, for a project i am looking at the 18 series, is there much difference between the two programming wise? The 18s seem more complex Also, looking for a pic with more than one PWM output, used the filter on the Microchip site and it came up with PIC16F690, but after looking at the datasheet it would seem that the 4 it says is actually 1 but can be used...

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 ----...
