June 24 - Day 5: Ethernet Connectivity Using PIC18 Devices
Continuing Education Center 
6/24/2016  413 comments
The PIC18 family of 8-bit devices includes a group Ethernet PIC microcontrollers. The object of today’s lecture is to use a PICDEM.net 2 Development Board to send packets over the internet. TCP and UDP protocols will be examined and put to work via code generated by the XC8 C compiler.
June 23 - Day 4: 8-bit Super PICs
Continuing Education Center 
6/23/2016  404 comments
Today will be dedicated to exercising the advanced features of the enhanced 8-bit PIC microcontroller family. These new 8-bit Super PICs are equipped with advanced analog computational capabilities and core independent peripherals. We will combine the forces of MPLAB X, XC8 and the Microchip Code Configurator to put the peripherals through their paces.
June 22 - Day 3: 8-bit Bluetooth via the RN4020
Continuing Education Center 
6/22/2016  418 comments
Sensors attached to the PICDEM Lab II Development Board rule the day. During the course of this lecture we will employ the services of the RN4020 Bluetooth Low Energy Module to bounce sensor data around in a Bluetooth PAN. We will also instruct the 8-bit PIC in charge to coerce our RN4020 device into interfacing with a mobile device.
June 21 - Day 2: 8-bit Embedded Development Using the MPLAB Code Configurator

The MPLAB Code Configurator is a graphical programming environment that is integrated into MPLAB X. C source code generated by the MPLAB Code Configurator can be inserted into an 8-bit PIC application. In this lecture, we will use the Explorer 8 Development Kit to demonstrate the capabilities of the MPLAB Code Configurator.
