A memory card (also called a flash memory card) is a solid-state electronic data storage device used for storing digital information. They are commonly used in many electronic devices, including digital cameras, mobile phones, laptop computers, MP3 players and also in many applications where a large amount of data has to be stored either once or continuously like in data loggers. Memory cards are small, re-writable and are able to retain data without power. In this article we will learn how to interface an SD Card with a PIC Microcontroller with SPI bus to write and read to/from an SD card with MPLAB XC8 and MPLAB Code Configurator.
