Hi, I have been trying to find some information how to use only a resistor and capacitor for my oscillator instead of a crystall or ceramic oscillator, I have read that this is possible to do if timimg is not critical. I am very new to micro's and have a working programmer/testboard but would like to make a very simple circuit (preferably with a solderless breadboard) to use my PICs for experimenting, instead of my programmer/testboard(I am getting board with just having leds flash on and off! when I push a button).
On page 96 (98/180) of the data sheet:
it states that in Register 14-,1 bit 4, 1-0 (FOSC) you can set the oscillator to be an RC oscillator
This is what I would like to do, if possible but I am not sure how to connect a resistor and capcitor by themselves let alone connect them to the PIC.
Also, another option in Register 14 is to use an internal oscillator,does this mean you could just connect your VCC, GND and I/O lines and no oscillator is needed? If so that would be even better.
Any help with this, or direction to where I can find more info would be great.
