    Guys, make sure you are fully awake before posting… Posting an AN on PIC16CXXX chips in the year 2013???!

  2. KH says:

    Not to say it’s totally invalid, but for substantial programs, let’s just stick to upholding the use of C and leave assembly to heroes…

    I too did a double take. This chip was modern 20 years ago.

    Funnily enough you can still buy them from microchip. They even have them in stock.
