Introduction to Microchip XC8 Compiler

This is a Getting Started with MPLAB X IDE and XC8 compiler tutorial. MPLAB® X IDE is the new Microchip IDE and it runs on a PC with Windows®, Mac OS® or Linux® to develop applications for PIC microcontrollers and replaces all MPLAB® C and HI-TECH compilers. XC8 is...

Blinking an LED with a PIC Microcontroller – XC8

An LED is a semiconductor light source, when forward biased, it emits light. LEDs are used mainly to indicate the status of electronic circuits, for example to indicate that power is on or off but nowadays they are used in many applications including lighting and beam detection. In this...

Simple Microcontroller 5V DC Regulated Power Supply

In any electronic products or projects there is always a source of power for the system to work. This is called a power supply. The source of this power can come from different sources like the mains AC voltage, a battery or even from a renewable power source like a...

A Very Cheap PIC Microcontroller Programmer

For many hobbyists and students interested in programming PIC Microcontrollers, the high cost of a programmer can really be a huge obstacle. The programmer described in this article is very easy and cheap to build. It can cost you less than R 100 ($10) to build it and all...

Interfacing LCD Display With PIC Microcontroller – XC8

LCDs are alphanumeric (or graphical) displays, which are frequently used in microcontroller based applications which require some information to be displayed to the user. There are many devices in the market which come in different shapes and sizes. Some LCDs have 40 or more character lengths with the capability...

Analog to Digital Converter in PIC Microcontroller – XC8

Analog to Digital converters allow analog continuous voltages to be converted into a discreet digital numbers inside the PIC as the PIC can only process digital numbers. This can enable a PIC to be connected to analog sensors such as temperature sensors, pressure sensors, humidity sensors, optical sensors, and...

Digital Thermometer using PIC Microcontroller and LM35 Temperature Sensor – XC8

Temperature sensors are very important in many projects especially in temperature logging devices and alarms. In this article we are going to design a digital thermometer using MPLAB XC8 compiler. This digital thermometer is built around the LM35 which is a precision integrated-circuit temperature sensor whose output voltage is...
