Common questions

What does a PIC do in a circuit?

What does a PIC do in a circuit?

PIC microcontrollers ( Programmable Interface Controllers), are electronic circuits that can be programmed to carry out a vast range of tasks. They can be programmed to be timers or to control a production line and much more.

How does a PIC programmer work?

How does a pic programmer work? All pic programmers work the same way (except the bootloader – see later) – they generate a serial data stream using two signal lines clock and data. Another pin controls the programming voltage (at MCLR) and two others supply power and ground.

What is the full form of PIC?

What is the difference between AVR and PIC?

Long answer: PIC is a brand of the company Microchip, AVR is Atmel. Both PIC and AVR are families of microcontrollers. Within the family of controllers, their will still be specific tools (compilers) needed, but now AVR and PIC do not compete anymore, they are owned by the same company.

Are there any tutorials for the PIC microcontroller?

The below list of PIC Tutorials and PIC Projects helps you to learn PIC series of microcontrollers from very basic level to advanced applications. Most of these projects are built with 8-bit PIC16F877A microcontroller and will be programmed using the MPLABX IDE.

How is three phase induction motor using PIC?

Circuit diagram of smoother start for three phase induction motor using pic microcontroller is shown below. Its consists of three zero crossing detection circuits for each phase of three phase power supply and PIC microcontroller which is used to provided firing angle to thyristors through opto isolator.

How do you connect a PIC microchip to a PC?

Download USB PIC Programmer Software from the following link Now connect the circuit to the USB port of your PC and open hex file to PIC programmer software. Connect any PIC microchip through the ICSP (In Circuit Serial Programming) Header, it include VPP, VDD, PGD, PGC, GND.

What is software starter for single phase induction motor?

This is also known as smooth start of induction motor. Software starter for single phase induction motor consists of following main components. Zero crossing detector circuit : This circuit is used to detect zero crossing signal of ac power supply.
