Programming a microcontroller?
I have got a MICROCHIP - PIC16F616 to play with, I am going to write a little program and load on it.
However, I have a few questions before I do this.
1. How do I know whether language I should write? like C or Assembly? does it tell you in the datasheet (link above), because I don't seem to find it.
2. What kind of program do I need for loading the program into the chip? is it also an information I can find in the datasheet? or it is really some common sense between programmer.
My supervisor doesn't offer much help...
Here is the link of open programming, I am just curcious that if I build this programmer (I have one for my chip, but just wanna learn something), does it mean that I can use this to connect my microcontroller and my computer, so to load the program into the microcontroller?
