Using the PIC 24F 16 Bit Microcontroller

Course No. 1002

This course will focus on applying and building advanced 16 bit microcontroller applications, for high resolution graphics displays, USB flash/ thumb drives, USB CDC and HID PC class applications, data logging and capacitive touch technologies using new set of processor peripherals and available open source libraries. Student should have some background in C programming. Course length is 2 days.

Upon completion of this course, students will have gained insight and hands on familiarity with the new generation of 16 bit microcontrollers, and associated USB, Graphic, Touch, and Real Time Clock /Calendar software libraries. Students will be able to apply these techniques in building even more sophisticated standalone applications. In addition, students will take-a-way the PIC24F Evaluation Board from Microchip, class software solution, lab manual and student handouts. Students should bring their personal USB Stick or Thumb Drive to facilitate associated Lab exercises
