Welcome to the PIC24 library collection! These downloadable libraries, accompanied by detailed explanations in the textbook, supplemented with numerous real-world examples, and accompanied by extensive on-line documentation given below, enable developers to take advantage of the wide range of peripherals offered by the PIC24. The collection consists of the getting started guide; the PIC24 support library; and ESOS, the Embedded Systems Operating System.
getting started page walks newcomers through the first step in developing for the PIC24: installing software and obtaining necessary hardware. Next, examples introduce use of the libraries below. Finally, documentation below provides a detailed reference to each of the library's operation.
PIC24 support library supports all the major subsystems of the PIC24: clock configuration, configuration bits, delays, interrupts, digital I/O, timers, serial I/O, SPI, I2C, ECAN, comparators, A/D conversion, FLASH reads/writes, and DMA. An extensive set of examples accompanying the library provide working sample code to guide newcomers to using the library.
ESOS, the Embedded Systems Operating System, is a cooperative multitasking operating system with very low memory overhead. ESOS is a task-driven programming paradigm within an event-driven framework. ESOS gives the user timer, interrupt, and communication services commonly needed in embedded systems programs.
