PIC Microcontroller Tutorials

These are Tiny Chips that integrate the Microprocessor and Peripheral chips in a compact size with low power consumption. PIC Microcontrollers from Microchip are the evolved computing digital devices that go into many gadgets and intelligent equipment. These are easy to program and reprogram and even protect your code or IP.

PIC Microcontroller Tutorials

The PIC has the math power. The memory, the I/O ports are integrated in the chip like 8051. Some may remember that Microprocessors like 8085 and Z80 had all these functions in chips outside and used to consume more power. Then came CMOS and better IC technology. The 8051(now avr, atmega)and PIC Micro are entire boards in one chip.

The above tutorial gives the History of computers, microprocessors and the details of PIC Micro's Internals.

”..what microcontrollers are and how they operate. Numerous illustrations and practical examples along with a detailed description of the PIC16F887 microcontroller will make you enjoy your work with PIC MCUs.”

Starting with PICmicro controllers by Wouter van Ooijen. PICmicro is the brand name for a family of microcontrollers manufactured by Microchip. The PIC acronym stood for Peripheral Interface Controller, but recently Microchip has renamed their chips to PICmicro. Within this family the flash-microcontrollers (16×84, 16f62x, 16f87x) are ideal devices for hobbyists and low-volume professionals.

Learn to program in C with FED - This manual will take you through the process of learning C from variables through constants to pointers and then structures and unions. Most of the examples are standalone and are as small as possible to enable the purpose and effect to be easily understood.

Very-large-scale integration

Very-large-scale integration

Very-large-scale integration (VLSI) is the process of creating integrated circuits by combining thousands of transistors into a single chip. VLSI began in the 1970s when complex semiconductor and communication technologies were being developed. The microprocessor is a VLSI device.

This site provides the current version of the book Introduction to Statistical Signal Processing by R.M. Gray and L.D. Davisson

DSPRelated.com since 1999, popular independent internet resource for Digital Signal Processing (DSP) engineers.

This tutorial with Java Applets is good to start with for DSP learning. DSP is a part of Embedded Processing. Also where Real Time Analog Meets Digital. Not that you will need DSP for everything. Simple equations can be implemented without DSP, but is an entry into the DSP world.

When complex waveforms in Audio / Video needs to be synthesized / manipulated. RF Communication related calculations too. More power and focus on math and speed makes dedicated DSP devices / software / specialization inevitable.

Embedded Systems - Wikibooks

Embedded Systems - Wikibooks

This book talks about microprocessors, in the field of digital control systems. We will discuss embedded systems, real-time operating systems, and other topics of interest. It is important to realize that embedded systems rarely have display capabilities, and if they do have displays, they are usually limited to small text-only LCD displays. The challenge of programming an embedded system then is that it is difficult to get real-time feedback from the system without a display.
