Does anyone have a PIC programming howto/guide/course?

If you're a complete beginner, there's some stuff on my homepage that will help you get started.

There's nothing there (yet!) about writing code for the PIC, but the following links should prove useful...

Introducing the PIC -
Guide to use the PIC -
Technical Reference -

Hope this helps,

Microchip has helpful "starting out"
on their website.

Personally I use PicBasic Pro with some occasional assembly language every once in a while.

sorry, but you can't beat the free JAL. based on Pascal and stupidly easy...I never touch ASM but you can if you want to, it can be embeded into JAL.

Have a look...+ with one of the BEST mailing lists, it's the place to start with PICS.

Nice looking preamp!

there is a very good but german tutorial at
on the net.
there are some usefull examples like voltmeter, counter etc. sample programs and circuit. You could try to translate what you donīt understand with google or email me with questions., i know the site very well now.

Thanks! But it's not as nice as some of your stuff. Do you get your PCB's professionally manufactured?

Your headphone amplifiers make mine (1 op-amp plus 2 transistors) look a bit silly ;)

the al williams tutorial is nice
wouter has a good intro on his site via the JAL link above
the JAL list is a yahoo group-took me a while to find it

The MicroChip site ( is loaded with useful info and software. You'll find a free assembler/debugger (MPLAB), the schematic of a programmer that connects to the pc parallel port, a bootloader for pics having a UART, and so on...
And of course, reference manual of each pic model.

BTW, I've written an utility that takes a .hex file and programs a pic using the parallel port programmer from an application note as described above. It uses the routines of the AN but can work on NT/2000/XP machines (which the original routines can't because they use biosprint).
If you or anyone else wants it, I can try to put it in a package and post it here for download (I'll have to check dll dependencies first).
