Course M104
An Introduction to the PIC18F Architecture and PIC18F Assembler Programming

Duration: 3 Days

Microchip Certified Training

Intended Audience

This course is aimed at engineers with some understanding of microelectronics and programming who are new to the PIC18F architecture, or wish to fill in gaps in their knowledge.

Familiarity with the Windows environment on a Personal Computer, and with fundamental concepts such as bits, bytes, Boolean logic and addressing is assumed.

Some experience of assembly language on microprocessors or other microcontrollers will be useful background for an understanding of the more advanced concepts presented during this course.

Course Overview

This hands-on course aims to provide engineers with an understanding of the enhanced PIC18F family of microcontrollers and experience of using Microchip development tools to create and debug simple assembly language programs.

The emphasis is on providing a solid foundation of knowledge of the architecture and features of this range of microcontrollers, together with practical experience of the development tools and the steps required to embark on a new development..

Key Skills

Practical Work

The course includes many practical workshop exercises which are interleaved with the relevant presentation material for maximum impact and variety. These exercises are carried out using MPLAB software running on a Windows PC, an ICD3 programmer/debugger and a target development board containing a PIC18F microcontroller on which programs created during the exercises can be observed to be running in real-time.
