    Where to Learn About Configuration Settings for PIC18F

    I have the table for the configuration settings for PIC18F.

    The ones with PLLDIV, CPUDIV, FOSC, BOR, BORV.

    For some of them, I understand what it means but for the rest, I have no idea.

    Is there like a tutorial of guide explaining all the configuration and when I should use it? For example, what should I put in my Watchdog Timer Postscale Select bits(WDTPS)?

    Re: Where to Learn About Configuration Settings for PIC18F

    Hi,

    Know what you mean, but have yet to find a clear manual expaining the configs.

    Assume you have seen the pre made coded examples, in MPlab see ..
    C\ .. Microchip\ MPASMSUITE the default .INC files and from
    MPASMSUITE\TEMPLATE the example header files designed to get you going.

    For details of the individual settings - see the chips data sheet, first the Configuration section within the Special Functions of the CPU chapter.

    Most of the config settings are also refered to in the respective datasheet sections, eg the PPLDIV is covered in the OSCILLATOR section.


    Its all there you just have to find it - as you can see it a typical Microchip treasure hunt :D

    Re: Where to Learn About Configuration Settings for PIC18F

    Thanks for the pointer. I'm using PIC18F4553 and there's no configuration things on the datasheet. I should be looking in the PIC18F4550 datasheet, it is all there.

    Thanks.

    Hi sahu,
    There is one chapter dedicated to configuration bits for PIC16 in the mid-range PIC reference manual.
