42 Chapter 3 / Microcontrollers and PIC Programming This is your program in PICmicro code. At the right of the screen is a display of the configuration information that will be programmed into the PICmicro. Verify that it is correct before proceeding. In general, the oscillator should be set to XT for a 4-MHz crystal, and the Watchdog Timer should be set to ON for PicBasic Pro programs. Most important, Code Protect must be OFF when programming any windowed (JW) PICmicro. You may not be able to erase a windowed PICmicro that has been code protected.

Com. The BASIC language is much easier to read and write than Microchip assembly language, and will be used to program the robots in this book. The PicBasic Pro Compiler is “BASIC Stamp IIlike,” and has most of the libraries and functions of both the BASIC Stamp I and II. Because it is a true compiler, programs execute much faster, and may be longer than their Stamp equivalents. THEN(GOTO) of the Stamps. These and other differences are spelled out in the PBP manual. PicBasic Pro (PBP) defaults to create files that run on a PIC 16F8404/P clocked at 4 MHz.

The TDS 210 on my bench also has the RS-232, GPIB, and centronics port module added, so that a hard copy of waveforms can be output. The great advantage to using an oscilloscope is the ability to visualize what is happening with a circuit. The new digital oscilloscopes also automatically calculate the frequency, period, mean, peak to peak, and true RMS of a waveform. You will probably need to use a regulated direct current (DC) power supply and a function generator quite often as well. 15 Oscilloscope, regulated DC power supply, and function generator.
