"C What Happens" - a guide using PIC microcontrollers and the CCS C Compiler gets you up and running quick on the PIC16F818.

Description [Hide]

Arduino, Arduino, Arduino.... it's all the rage, but before some smarty-pants set of academics baby-foodified C, the real work was being done by PIC microcontrollers running a CCS C compiler. This bundle gets you functional using C on PICs, with all in a convenient bundle.

ON SALE - The PCW Compiler by itself is a $350 retail item!

The bundle contains:

  • C What Happens - by David Benson
  • PCW IDE Compiler, v4.078
  • ICD-U40 Programmer
  • PIC 16F818 development board

What each particular item offers is:

C What Happens - This183 page book by David Benson has a series of exercises and examples for learning to use C with a PIC. If you have a basic understanding of electronics, this book walks you through many of the functions in the CCS C compiler. Chapters include:

  • PIC Microcontroller Product Overview
  • Choosing Development Tools
  • Programming a Device using the ICD-U40/PICkit2/ICD2/PICStart Plus
  • Program Design
  • Writing Programs (with Experiments)
  • Talking to a PIC with a PC
  • Interrupts
  • Timing and Counting Using Timer 0
  • Analog to Digital Conversion

PCW IDE Compiler - It's a full-featured workhorse compiler offering:

  • Full Featured C Compiler for the PIC16F818 Device
  • Color Syntax Editor/IDE
  • C Aware Real-time Debugger
  • Flow Chart Editor
  • Documentation Generator and RTF Editor
  • New Project Wizard
  • Interactive Help

ICD-U40 Programmer - The ICD-U40 is a convenient and cost effective In-Circuit Serial Programmer (ICSP) for Microchip's FLASH based PIC microcontrollers. For owners of CCS PCW or PCWH the ICD-U40 is also a complete In-Circuit Debugging solution for PICmicros with built-in ICD features.

PIC 16F818 Development board - It's a nice little experiment board for the PIC16F818, featuring:

  • PIC16F818 (28 pin SOIC)
  • 4 I/O Pins (2 Can Be Analog)
  • Four DIP Switches
  • One Pushbutton
  • Six LEDs
  • Four I/O Lines To Jumper Block
  • ICD Jack
