Oakkar7 is a fan of PIC microcontrollers and the MPLABX IDE who recently received his new Open Bench Logic Sniffer. He wanted to create a project to test both MPLABX and OBLS.
The idea is simple. To create an 8bits signal generator with PIC. The software project is developed by MPLABX and target hardware is PIC16F628A. I used this PIC because it is cheap and fast (20MHz clock) in low end controllers series.
This should be a good beginners project illustrating important concepts in using MPLABX and the Logic Analyzer. You can read the step by step details on Part 1 of this project (installing MPLABX and programming the PIC) at oakkar7’s blog. Part 2, testing with the OBLS, is forthcoming.
