Microchip 8bit Microcontroller Programming Courses - An overview

The Microchip 8 bit Microcontroller families (PIC10, PIC12, PIC16 and PIC18) are very widely used in industrial applications, toys, and lighting control systems to name but a few. They are also widely used in teaching introductory as well as more advanced courses in digital electronics. FTT has been teaching Microchip programming courses for over 15 years and the demand for courses dealing with programming of 8 bit PIC microcontrollers continues. Learning to program embedded systems using PIC16 and PIC18 devices can serve as a good starting point for developing applications for more complex devices such as those belonging to the PIC21, dsPIC and PIC32 families, and it is quite common for companies using Microchip technologies to have some products based on 8 bit microcontrollers, and others on more powerful microccontrollers such as dsPIC microcontrollers and PIC32 microcontrollers. With the development of their new integrated development environment (MPLABX) and a new generation of C compilers for their 8 bit, 16 bit and 32 bit processors families Microchip has provided a consistent development environment that spans the entire range of Microchip microcontrollers.

The Microchip 8 bit microcontroller programming curriculum courses cover the currently most required topics which include assembly language programming, basic and advanced C programming, programming USB and programming Wireless applications. We can also provide CAN programming and application development courses if required.
