AS3081KT - Introduction To PIC Programming with CD-ROM

Ability Level 3: IntermediateFORMATS AVAILABLE: Self-Assembly Electronic Kit
(Soldering Required) or Pre-Assembled Module (AS)

Our Introduction To PIC Programming Tutorial Starter Kit ideal for those of you who are new to PIC microcontrollers and wish to learn from scratch how to program them in assembler code using Microchip's MPLab software.

The product comprises the following:

  • a PIC16F84A-04/P microcontroller chip - considered to be the ideal device for learning PIC programming (10,000 erase/write cycles)
  • the programming hardware to burn your code to the chip PLUS an LED bench testing Area for testing your code creations
  • the 3081 programming software interface
  • tutorial manual (PDF)
  • four detailed Assembler code examples for you to learn from
  • CD-ROM containing all software and documentation plus many useful extras

The documentation comprises a detailed but easy to understand 49 page tutorial manual that takes you step by step through building the hardware and burning your first PIC right through to understanding how a microcontroller works and writing your own software assembler code. In fact we have made it so easy you will be learning how to design a project and write your own programs from page 7!

The PIC16F84A is electrically erasable so it can be used over and over again with different code (we supply four detailed code examples for you to learn from). The hardware has an LED test section that allows you to bench test your code.

  • Programming hardware connects to any standard PC parallel port
  • Software is compatible with 32-bit Windows 95 through to Windows 7 (32-bit only) (PC must have a parallel port - a serial/USB converter is unlikely to work - we will not offer support if you wish to try...)
  • Hardware incorporates a separate LED bench testing section
  • Programmer can Program, Read, Verify & Erase
  • 49 page step by step PDF tutorial manual
  • 4 detailed code examples are supplied for you to learn from
  • Introduces Microchip® MPLAB® PIC design and development software. Write your own PIC16F84A programs and burn using the 3081 hardware
  • 16F84A programs made by other assemblers can also be used with this programmer
  • Full software, schematics, circuit explanation & documentation provided on CD-ROM

Although it is possible to buy cheaper PIC16F84A programmers, features rapidly drop off as the price goes down e.g. manual switching of programming voltage, no verify or read facility, minimal software. And without certain assembled-in safety circuits these cheaper models cannot be guaranteed to work on all PC's.
