I was searching for this a lot and it appears that there are more types of chips and I'm totally confused.. So can anyone give me like a introduction to it or point me where to start from, with some small projects and what do I need to convert the languages.. Also which programming language is used in here..?
    Thanks.

    Re: Total newbie to pic programming

    Hi,
    A few suggestions from me:
    1. Download the datasheet of PIC16F877A or PIC16F887:
    PIC16F877A - ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/devicedoc/39582b.pdf
    PIC16F887 - ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/DeviceDoc/41291F.pdf
    2. Download the mid-range reference manual.
    3. Determine programming language. Choices include ASM, BASIC, C, PASCAL. I would recommend BASIC or C.
    4. Determine compiler. I would recommend mikroC or mikroBASIC.
    5. Download the mikroElektronika free ebook - mikroElektronika - PIC Books
    6. Start with the mikroElektronika book.
    7. Make many many codes to get a grip of things.

    When you have questions, come to the forum and ask.

    Hope this helps.
    Tahmid.
