    Which Pic microcontroller ?

    Hi, I have learnt 8051 and used 89S52. Now I would like to learn about PIC which controller should I use ?
    Pls specify a widely used PIC similar to 89S52 i.e commonly used for most projects...

    Re: Which Pic microcontroller ?

    PIC16F877A is a Commonly Used Micro controller.
    if you want learn USB and Need more memory space then Migrate to PIC18F4550

    Re: Which Pic microcontroller ?

    The best for start level is PIC16F84.... even when you buy the programmer they give you a freebie PIC16F84
    Hasta La Vista, baby!

    Re: Which Pic microcontroller ?

    Hi,

    What language are you coding in ?

    The 16f877A is as good as any, or as said, the 18f4550 is you want to use USB, though complicated even using Microchips free C code.

    Re: Which Pic microcontroller ?

    it is very simple to program PIC using FLOWCODE. not require any C experience.

    mikroC is a very popular compiler. There's a free version available as well. http://www.mikroe.com/mikroc/pic/
    There are other compilers available, such as Hi-Tech C, mikroBASIC, PICBASIC, etc.

    Hope this helps.
    Tahmid.

    Re: Which Pic microcontroller ?

    hi-tech c compiler is nice to use as compared to other compiler....if u use hi-tech c compiler,you can able to write any type of coding for any controller family like atmel,microchip,freescale etc......

    Are you sure about this?

    I know that mikroC can be used for many families:
    mikroC for dsPIC - mikroC PRO for dsPIC30/33 and PIC24 - C compiler for dsPIC30, dsPIC33, PIC24 - MikroElektronika
    mikroC for PIC - mikroElektronika - mikroC PRO for PIC - C compiler for Microchip PIC microcontroller development
    mikroC for ARM - MikroElektronika - mikroC PRO for ARM - C compiler for ARM Cortex M0, M3 and M4 device development
    mikroC for PIC32 - MikroElektronika - mikroC PRO for PIC32 - C compiler for Microchip PIC32 microcontroller
    mikroC for 8051 - mikroC PRO for 8051 2009 - C compiler for 8051 microcontroller - mikroElektronika
    mikroC for AVR - MikroElektronika - mikroC PRO for AVR - C compiler for AVR microcontroller device development

    If you're using mikroC, you may find this helpful:

    Re: Which Pic microcontroller ?

    because it didnt have any inbuild functions,so we are only responsible for all functions.......after throughly knowing about all details about that controller in the datasheet,we can write any coding....suppose microc and ccs compiler have own inbuild functions.by using these functions we can easily write any coding....so no need to study all details in the datasheet....thats why i said like that.....its my point of you mr.tahmid...
