Chapter 2

PIC32 Microcontroller Series

Abstract

This chapter is an introduction to the hardware of the PIC32 family of microcontrollers. The architecture of the popular PIC32MX360F512L microcontroller is taken as an example in this chapter. The program and data memory structure, reset circuitry, clock sources, I/O port characteristics, real-time clock module, and various timer modules offered by the chip are described in detail. In addition, the important topic of interrupts is covered and the interrupt mechanisms and interrupt sources of the PIC32 family of microcontrollers are described. Finally, the analogue input structure and the ADC module of the PIC32MX360F512L microcontroller are given with examples to show how this microcontroller ...
