ADC, analog-to-digital converter; PWM, pulse width modulation. Introducing the PIC® 16 Series and the 16F84A 27 relative, the 16LF84A, whose extended supply voltage range allows operation at lower voltages. Either of these controllers is available in different packages, different operating temperature ranges, and different clock speed ranges. For example, the 16F84A is available in 4 and 20 MHz versions. The 16F87XA is a diverse grouping, as can be seen. There are two package sizes and two memory sizes.

However, common features also appear across all their microcontrollers, and knowledge of one family can lead with ease to knowledge of another. • The Microchip 12F508 is a good microcontroller to introduce a range of features of microcontrollers in general and of PIC microcontrollers in particular. 1.

ISBN 0-333-92994-2. 2. com Section 2 Minimum Systems and the PIC® 16F84A This section, of five chapters, introduces the main concepts of a microcontroller, using a ‘small’ 16 Series PIC microcontroller.

The ‘C’ insert implies CMOS technology, where CMOS stands for Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor, the leading semiconductor technology for implementing low-power logic systems. The ‘F’ insert indicates incorporation of Flash memory technology (still using CMOS as the core technology). An ‘A’ after the number indicates a technological upgrade on the first issue device. An ‘X’ indicates that a certain digit can take a number of values, the one taken being unimportant to the overall number quoted.
