Getting Started With PIC16F84 Microcontroller Programming

Resources needed for a Quick jump-start :

For the simplicity of the learning process for the beginner, I 'll start with the most famous Microchip PIC16F84 ( which was the first uC I learned )

You need to prepare these stuff before start programming :

1- The target IC (the uC PIC 16F84A) and its Datasheet .

2- Programming circuit ( JDM programmer ) - you need to build it your self - or buy a Microchip PIC programmer.

3 - Loader program ( ICProg ) - you 'll need it if you use JDM programmer - , but if you buy a ready-made programmer , you will have the software with it.

4 - MPLab program ( to assemble ) the programs you write in Assembley .

5 - HiTec PICC ( to compile programs in C ) .

6 - Proteus 7.0 Simulator

You can get all these stuff for FREE from the Internet.
