PIC16F84, programming


I was looking at the

homepage, and as usual a big site impossible to find anything.

I have a datasheet of it, but can not programme it.

Where do I find mpasmwin.exe or similar? I could not find a download section Also, the picprog2.exe to download the software.

And a programming manual, which should be on the microchip site.

I want to use the ICSP (In Circuti programming), anyone have any information about this?

I do not know anything about PIC microcontrollers so I might be wrong with this, but take a look at the link below

It is MPLAB. It has software download and documentation links at the bottom of the page

If you want to do something with PICs, you'd better learn to navigate Microchips site.

Go to the homepage. Click on "datasheetfinder" on top of the page. Click on "8-bit PIC Microcontrolers" Select "PIC16F84" in the list box

Now you have all links to this PIC type documents in the right colum, including datasheet, erata, programming specifications, ICSP and a lot more.

BTW. The PIC16F84 is obsolete and its successor, the PIC16F84A almost. Most of the time the PIC16F628 is considered a good replacement. It's cheaper and has some advanced properties. I was told Microchip to have documentation to port PIC16F84 code to the PIC16F628. There's a disadvantage too. The PIC16F628 and the PIC16F628A are not fully compatible, especially in the programming algorithm.

Found it. And I got MPLAB to work from above (thx) PS: it does not work on XP, but fine on 98 :-)

As for ICSP: I did not find what I was looking for. Basically it goes as this: can MPLAB download software using ICSP and what wirering is needed?

Also, I found the 627 to be a replacement. I have 2 F84 and will use them for testing and my first project. As of now, it is not that important. Already now it looks like I need more I/O and I might move on to something larger when needed. I havent used them for 10 years, I need to play a bit before I start bigger projects. As of now, PIC16F73 seems like an option.

BR & thanks Sonnich
