Could anyone point me how I might do this with this chip set and code? What gear I'll need and software? I've been looking all over for a project like this and I'm excited about the learning curve. Thanks for the help!
at the very least you will need a pickit2, however i suggest getting a pickit3, microchip has video tutorials they should cover the basics.
this however is a very basic circuit. and can be built using veraboard or simple proto-board.
