Programming A PIC: Data

The Program Lives
           Our creation is nothing terribly impressive, however we have created a working system. It blinks an LED at a predicted interval. This is a beginning to a whole new world of functionality. Once you can load code onto the PIC you can use its advanced functionality.

           Here is a short (and perhaps redundant) video of what you should see on the P-40 Development Board when you run the program:

           Hopefully you see the same thing when you run the program. The main observations to be made from this tutorial and program is that we can access any digital ports on the PIC very easily. The C18 compiler makes it even easier as we can use standard ANSI C to manipulate register data.
