What is the most practical way to have a PIC based circuit communicate with a computer?

And what are the strengths, weaknesses, or limitations of using USB with PIC based circuits to communicate?

Thanks in advanced ^_-
 

The easiest way for a PIC to communicate with computer is the UART protocol. Because, you need only two wires and, that's it.

For more information, search the older topics.
 

Using USB.

Communication distance is limited.
USB is easy for the use, and is now easily available on new computers.
USB needs a relatively more skill & knowledge to implement.

It depends on which PIC is used. Unfortunately I don't use the family. But I know that PIC16XXXX have USART as a serial interface. New PIC18XXXX and others have USB. You only need to choose any proper for you.
