Firmware for Micro-Processors Issue

08/30/2013 1:10 PM

I am looking for micro-processor sketch information that are public domain or writers that can point me in the direction of finding individuals interested in writing and tutoring. Anybody know of measurement programs for pic micros? Retired and outside my scope of expertise.

You will get a much wider and well informed audience here:

Microchip Forums

What you are looking for, in part, is known as open source projects.

Microchip has a lot of training tutorials on line and the forums I pointed you to will round out the remaining questions you have.

Good luck and have fun!

If you are new to microprocessors, I'd recommend buying an Arduino at Radio Shack (or any of many other places). Loads of info about programming them on the web.

Is your interest only in PIC micros or that style of microcontroller? PIC was one of the early devices and I believe there have been many improvements. One of the best is the Arduino series of products which use Atmel microcontrollers which seem to me to be the most versatile. The Arduino products have a bootloader which is linked to free software that runs on your pc/laptop running Windows,Linux, or Macintosh operating systems and is free at the website. A good place to find examples of projects is 'Instructables.com'
