- Hey Michael:
I am new to this list - so hi everyone!
Those IC's look neat, I assume they are just PICS with some
pre-programmed interpreter, or partitioned off area where KicChip puts
some of their lower-level stuff. Does / do any of those packages
allow for hardware or timer interrupts? When you mention the 20 mhz /
frequencies, is that internal, or can we speed it up with an external
I like BASIC. I was afraid of having to learn assembly. On the other
hand, do many robotics people in here program in assembly, or is the
consensus that its more of a waste of time to learn and troubleshoot?
As a bit of background, I have have already used a language called
BASIC18 with a PIC18F - so I am somewhat familiar with the PIC - just
not hardcore'ly familiar with it. I want to program a PID controller
that ideally can handle a few servo motors, as well as generate
simplistic motion profiles (trapezoid). Has anyone done this / what
