PICC vs. PICC-18

Hello friends,

I using PICC for last 4-5 years. I never have chance (nessessity) to use PICC18.

But now I have one big application (I need more I/O pins and more kB of Flash), so some pic18fxxxx will suite well.

Is there any difference between picc and picc18 in term of programing, architecture and so?


Thank you!


Mr.Cube

Re: PICC vs. PICC-18

If I were you I would skip the Pic18 and go on to a PIC24 or dsPIC30.
These are true 16-bit micros and a quantum leap in power and performance.
The Microchip C30 compiler is a pleasure to use, different ball game from the Pic16.
There is not a lot of difference in cost between the 16-bit pics and the Pic18 8-bit series.

I have used Pic18 and they do the job. Setting up the configuration fuses for the Pic18 can be a bit of a nightmare!
