Let’s Get Started

In this chapter, we look at the process of connecting a PIC® microcontroller to an In-Circuit Serial Programmer, or ICSP. Some people also call them In-Circuit Debuggers, since they also have debugging capabilities. We look at the process of creating and running a new project in MPLAB X as well as creating source files. Beginners and first-time users of bare-bones microcontrollers should pay special attention to this chapter because, unlike the Arduino and other development boards, there is a need to connect the microcontroller to ...
