4 (MCLR), a 4­MHz crystal with two (22­pF) capacitors and a 5­V power sup­ ply. observe: The 4­MHz crystal and two (22­pF) capacitors make up an oscillator that is required by the microcontroller. These three parts may be substituted with a 4­MHz ceramic resonator. The two LEDs and the two resistors connected in series with each LED are the output. It allows us to see that the microcontroller and program are func­ tioning properly. Assemble the components as shown in the schematic (Fig. 6. 5) onto the sol­ derless breadboard. When you have finished, your work should appear as in Fig. 6. 7. even supposing  the  requirements  sheet  on  the  16F84  states  the  microcontroller will operate on voltages from 2 to 6 V, I provided a regulated 5­V power supply for the circuit. The regulated power supply consists of a 7805 voltage regula­ tor and two filter capacitors. Wink observe  strength  to  the  circuit. The  LEDs  attached  to  the  chip  will  alternately turn on and off. Wink, …, wink. Now you know how easy it is to program these microcontrollers and get them up and running. fifty four Chapter Six Troubleshooting the circuit There is not too much that can go wrong here. If the LEDs do not light, the first thing to check is the orientation of the LEDs. If they are put in backward, they will not light. Next check your ground wires. See the jumper wires on the right­hand side of the solderless breadboard. They bring the ground up to the two 22­pF capac­ itors. fee  all  your  connections. glance  again  at  Figs. 6. 2  and  6. three  to  see  how  the underlying  conductive  strips  relate  to  the  push  in  terminals  on  best  of  the board. PIC Experimenter’s Board and LCD Display There are two optional tools you may want if you plan on experimenting with the  PIC16F84  and  microcontrollers  in  normal. They  are  the  PIC Experimenter’s Board and LCD display. We will look at the LCD display first simply because  a  comparable  liquid crystal display  reveal  is  integrated  into  the  PIC  Experimenter’s Board and what we say about the stand­alone LCD display is also true for the PIC Experimenter’s Board LCD display. One thing PIC microcontrollers lack is some type of display. With a display, the chip could show us how a program is running or what it is detecting. moreover  a  show  could  permit  the  microcontroller  to  output  textual  and numeric messages to the user. To this end there are serial LCD displays on the market that only require a unmarried  microcontroller’s  I/O  strains  (pin)  and  a  circuit  flooring. The  specific LCD display we are using receives standard serial data (RS­232) at 300, 1200, 2400, and 9600 baud (Bd) (inverted or true). The LCD module is a two­line, sixteen­ character visible display. The full display is actually two lines by 40 characters, yet  the  extra  24  characters  according to  line  are  off  monitor. We  can  use  the PicBasic and PicBasic Pro serout command to communicate and output mes­ sages to the LCD display. The  PicBasic  and  PicBasic  seasoned  compilers  can  ship  and  obtain  serial details  at  three hundred, 1200, 2400, and  9600  Bd.
