Feb 18 - Day 1 - An Overview of the Microcontroller Marketplace
Continuing Education Center 
2/18/2013  242 comments
Viewers will understand the differences among the microcontroller, microprocessor, and (briefly) DSP markets and the common selection characteristics of reliability, packaging, and development tools.
Feb 8 - Day 5 Bootloading CCS C Compiler Applications
Continuing Education Center 
2/8/2013  270 comments
The final session will focus on developing bootloadable applications using the CCS C Compiler for PIC Microcontrollers. The idea is to demonstrate the versatility of the Bootloader code by demonstrating bootloading PICBASIC PRO applications followed by bootloading and running PIC18F47J13 applications generated with the CCS C Compiler.
Feb 7 - Day 4 Bootloading PICBASIC PRO 3.0 Applications
Continuing Education Center 
2/7/2013  280 comments
The fourth session will describe how to write PICBASIC PRO 3.0 applications that can be loaded via the Microchip PIC18F47J13 Bootloader. A PICBASIC PRO 3.0 driver for the NHD-02C16CZ that can be melded with the Microchip Bootloader code and PICBASIC PRO 3.0 application code will be introduced.
Feb 6 - Day 3 Bootloader Firmware Design
Continuing Education Center 
2/6/2013  264 comments
The third session will concentrate on the assembly of the necessary Microchip Memory Disk Drive File System components to support the PIC18F47J13. The concepts presented in this session will be supported by working code examples. The Microchip Memory Drive File System API will also be examined.
Feb 5 - Day 2 Bootloader Hardware Design
Continuing Education Center 
2/5/2013  398 comments
The second session will describe the hardware design that will be used to implement the physical components of the Microchip PIC18F47J13 Bootloader. The hardware will consist of a PIC18F47J13 that is supported by an FTDI FT232RL USB-to-UART Bridge IC and a Microchip MCP1703 3.3-volt LDO voltage regulator. A buffered microSD card carrier card and an NHD-02C16CZ 3.3-volt LCD are also part of the Bootloader hardware complement.
Feb 4 - Day 1 Anatomy of a Microcontroller Bootloader
Continuing Education Center 
2/4/2013  393 comments
This first session will introduce the students to the basic firmware elements of the microchip microcontroller, Bootloader. The building blocks that make up the Microchip Bootloader will be described in detail. The firmware that supports each Bootloader building block will also be examined.
