The Pros: It’s color and it looks good even at steep angles. Getting a simple Hello, World app running is trivial. It’s engine is a PIC18F26K20! Oh, the price is pretty darn good. Buy 500 units (~$1000) and they’ll tweak …

The LED flashes approximately 150ms every 5 seconds. RC1 (pin 9), triggers the LED. Interestingly, the PIC consumes 28uA at idle, no matter which method is used. Compiles with Microchip’s XC8 (v1.38) Delay function, 28 bytes Timer 0 delay, 31 …

This isn’t a magical cut and paste example. YOU need to do some work.  Why? There are a number of Vishay thermistors, all with different properties and I don’t know which one you have. The values included here are for …

Below is a 16-bit Timer0 example for the PIC18F2550 using the XC8 1.38 compiler. I’ve included two examples: INITCONbits and straight up INTCON. Why? Well, In one project, the XC8 compiler bitched with: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microchip\xc8\v1.38\include\pic18f2550.h:8051: error: (1098) conflicting declarations …
