PIC 3000 Microcontroller Study Module

This electronics training resource connects into the Experiment Platform, and introduces students to PIC Microcontrollers and their applications through a wide range of programming activities. It includes a circuit board, a re-programmable PIC device, and assembly language program development software. It includes the following on-board devices:

  • DC motor fan, thermistor, lamp/heater and Hall-effect speed sensor for open loop and closed loop temperature and motor speed control processes
  • Simple A/D and D/A converters for use with 18-pin PIC devices
  • On-board telephone style numeric keypad
  • Eight LEDs for logic monitoring
  • Eight slide switches for use as logic inputs
  • Three 7-segment LED displays
  • Piezo sounder
  • Two push-button switches
  • Potentiometer
  • 2mm sockets for all port and peripheral connections
  • Breadboard area for student project work

Programming Software included:

  • PICShell PIC programming software
  • MPLAB ™ assembler/simulator/compiler suite from Microchip Technology ™

Typical topic areas include:

  • Microprocessors, Microcomputers, and Microcontrollers
  • Overview of PIC Microcontrollers
  • Number Systems
  • PIC Software
  • Interfacing
  • Program Development
  • Basic Input/Output
  • Logic Systems
  • Subroutines and Loops
  • Interrupts
  • Timers
  • Keyboard Scanning
  • Sound Generation
  • EEPROM Programming
  • Analog to Digital Conversion
  • Digital to Analog Conversion
  • Simple Closed Loop Control

Typical activities include:

  • Investigating the component parts of a microprocessor
  • Identify the numbering systems used in the programming of microcontrollers
  • Investigating the PIC instruction set
  • Identify the purposes of the pins of the PIC
  • Investigate PIC based input/output programs
  • Investigating instructions used to simulate logic gates
  • Investigate a program that scans a keypad
  • Investigate a PIC-based sound generator circuit
  • Identify the software needed to perform A to D conversions
  • Investigating how a closed-loop control system operates

Note this resource requires either a 300-01 or a 300-02 Experiment Platform.
