I am new to programing and was wondering if there is any way to read the code off a PIC chip without damaging it or if you plug it into a programmer will it destroy the data on the chip. Sorry if this is a stupid question any help would be most appreciated

Hello. I'm just making my entrance into the world of microcontrollers. But as I self learning everything I have a few questions. I recently purchased 2 PICS (16F648A) and a programming board. The board works fine and I got it to connect to the computer and reconize the PIC. I guess my first question is, Is all hex code PIC specific? Meaning would I be able to use this code "http://www.voti.nl/blink/index_1.html#16F630" for my PIC? The models are very similar but not exact. If not, I would like to do the standard "Blink an LED" as my first project. How would I write my code for this PIC and what materials would I need? Thanks!

Is there a website to learn about how to use picmicro's really easily? I realize that there are some instructables about it, but to be honest they arn't very helpful. For example, I have no clue what the crystal does, why you need it, how to hook it up, and how much voltage they need because I need to buy some.

Savage innovations does not offer a small OOPic chip. OOPic is my favorite MCU and I want a small one. Soooo, I decided I want to make one. In theory, The process is simple. The OOPic 2 is a PIC16F77 with custom firmware. I ordered a similar chip (PIC16F876A) to put the firmware on so I basically have a smaller OOPic. Savage innovations does not offer the OOPic firmware as a download so I have to extract it from my OOPic2. Here's my questions. Will a JDM2 programmer be able to extract the firmware? Will WinPic800 work to do this? Will this erase my OOPic's firmware entirely? Is it even possible? I would like some input and if you guys say it will be okay, I am going to do it. (I'll post and ible if it works.

Heres the deal, my roommate wanted a shot of me firebreathing for some CD jacket artwork, so I ended up jpegifying all the frames near the frame I used for my avatar (Huh?). Basically I ended up with 28 different photos from that one firebreath sequence. Since the photos were just sitting on my drive, and it is the 4th, I figured I'd share them with everyone, and if enough people are interested I'll turn the other firebreathing sequences into pictures too. I threw all the photos in a RAWR im a kitty which can be found by clicking anywhere on the text.

Anyone using this pickit clone ? if so; does it work well with microchips software? Almost seems to good to be true @ 50% less than straight from microchip! Thanks for your time slvrback

I recently got a pic prgrammer (the really cheap one off of sparkfun, the PIC_PG2) and I have a problem: Background info: I'm trying to program a 12f675 I'm using IC-Prog when I program the programming led turns on and flickers a bit now and then. A pop-up screen comes up, "No Oscillator Callibration Value found. Do you want to use value from file (3fffh) instead? " I can now hit yes, no, or cancel. If I hit no it goes on, if i hit yes it goes on. after a couple more status bars, like reading, prgramming, little blue bars... then "verify failed at adress 0000h!" I need to fix this.

I'm planning on getting started with PICs this christmas. I've aquiered everything i need to get started, and done some reading on assembler language. But I have yet to find any free C compilers for the PIC microcontroller. Could some experienced PIC users please give me some pointers?

Hey friends! Yesterday my uncle gave me an old pic16f72 microcontroller. I am a beginner to arduino and have written few programs myself but PIC is absolutely obsolete to me. I want to ask that is pic a standalone ic to program or it need other hardware. Also in which language are these programmed. Plz tell me all the basics. Thanks! :)
Question by DELETED_Snehil1101 3 years ago | last reply 3 years ago
I am just starting to get into PICs, problem is, I can't find a program. All these tutorials on PICs on Instructalbes talk about the hardware, but not very many talk about software. I am pretty fluent in VBasic/Basic so I would like a developer that works in that language or C/C++. I have PIC Prog, but that just downloads it. Anyway here's what I need help finding: -Free devolpment and compiler program -Preferably programs with Basic or C -Works with JDM2 programmers. Yes I have MCU experience, but it's been with an OOPic. I can't use it on everything so I am switching to PICs. Anyway if anyone can help me with software solutions, I'd really appreciate it.
