Chapter 3 covers the use of compilers, hardware programmers, and the use of a development studio designed to speed up programming and debugging. 4 A small drill press used to drill holes in a PCB. 23 This page intentionally left blank. 3 Microcontrollers and PIC Programming Microcontrollers The microcontroller is an entire computer on a single chip. The advantage of designing around a microcontroller is that a large amount of electronics needed for certain applications can be eliminated. This makes it the ideal device for use with mobile robots and other applications where computing power is needed.

Once the main routines of a program are operating satisfactorily, a PICmicro with more capabilities or expanded features of the compiler may be utilized. 30 Chapter 3 / Microcontrollers and PIC Programming Software Installation The PicBasic Pro files are compressed into a self-extracting file on the diskette. They must be uncompressed to your hard drive before use. To uncompress the files, create a subdirectory on your hard drive called PBP or another name of your choosing by typing: md PBP at the DOS prompt.
