Re: Introduction: Fundamentals of Designing With Microcontrollers

Watch out for some of the PIC MCUs.  I have experimented with the PIC16F690, for example, but to use the MPLAB debug capability I would need a DIFFERENT 16F690 chip with more pins that provide access to internal MCU debug functions.  Microchip offers that "special" chip on an adapter board that takes the place of a regulat 16F690 in your system.  So, you need the adapter and a cable for some Microchip MCUs.  Look closely to find out what you need to use ALL of the capabilities in MPLAB and other integrated development environments.  You can't just go out and buy "stuff." It takes some research.  I'll talk about these aspects in other sessions this week.
