“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” Steve Jobs quoteste it living someone else's life.

MPLAB IDE TUTORIAL

This tutorial show you how to burn "code.hex" into microcontroller. Only valid to be use with ICD2,3 or PICKIT programmers only..Other third party programmers have their own software.

Selecting a device:
            1) Open MPLAB® IDE (download)

            2) Select Configure->Select Device

            3) Select the target device from the drop down menu (select pic16Fxxx)

Importing a hex file:

            1) Make sure that the correct device is selected before the hex file is imported (see above for instructions).

            2) Select File->Import

Programming the device:

1) Once the correct device is selected and a hex file is imported it is ready to be programmed into a device.  Select Programmer->Select Programmer->… and select the programmer that you have available and connected to the computer. (I personally use MPLAB ICD3)

            2) After the programmer is enabled connect it to the target device.

            3) Select Programmer->Program to program the device.

Running the device:

1) After the device is programmed, some programmers hold the device in reset.  The easiest way to get the device running despite what programmer is being used is to disconnect the programmer from the target device.
