Microchip PIC Series
Microchip PICs (Peripheral Interface
Controllers) are a family of microcontrollers that are widely used in embedded systems for a variety of applications.
These microcontrollers are small, low-power, and low-cost devices that can be programmed to perform a specific task
or set of tasks.
PICs offer a range of features and capabilities, such as analogue-to-digital converters, timers, communication interfaces,
and more. They can be programmed using various programming languages, including the C and C++ programming languages,
and assembly language.
One of the benefits of using PICs is that many devices are still available in the
DIL (Dual In-line) packages, which offer
ease of use for prototyping new products, and for in education. Also if a DIL packaged PIC is damaged or needs to be
replaced, it can be easily removed and replaced with a new one, without the need for specialized equipment. DIL packaged
PICs are often used in educational settings to teach basic electronics and programming, due to their ease of use and
