where to connect the unused pins 16f877 to avoid the noise

Started by R Ramesh October 8, 2003
Hi all
I planned to improve my cicuit free of noise.
For what we have to do the unused pins in 16F877.
 Need to connect directly to ground or through an resistor or any other way?
 
Thx
Ramesh
 



If you know for sure they are not going to be used (port pins), make them outputs. Otherwise unused pins should be pulled to V+ through resistors around 10k. If you just ground them, an inadvertant command sending them high will damage the pic.
