The PIC microprocessor family from Microchip Technology
were originally the "heir apparent" to the wildly successful
6502. They remain among the most popular microprocessors
and microcontrollers available today, especially for embedded
and low end applications.

Over six billion PIC microcontrollers have been sold.

Helping along with this popularity is the enormously popular
Basic Stamp from Parallax.

This library page has combined and updated our earlier
PIC
Microprocessor
, Pic a Peck of PIC's, and PIC Links library pages.


One major potential use of PIC's involves our Magic Sinewaves.

Some library files require an Adobe Acrobat 5.0  plug in for online
viewing.  Offline, these may be accessed by an Acrobat Reader or
an eBook Reader or any other .PDF accepting program.
