Designing a project
Preparing the program for loading into
microcontroller can boil down to few basic steps:
1. Designing a project
2. Writing the program
3. Converting to zero-one code comprehensible by microcontroller, i.e. compiling.
Opening a new project
To create a project, click on the option
PROJECT and the click on PROJECT WIZARD, which will open the following
Creating a new project
Click on NEXT to continue. Next thing to
do is to choose the appropriate microcontroller. In our case, it is
Next step is defining the program
language to be used. In our case it is Assembler, so we will select that
option as shown on the image below.
Selecting a language
All that is left is to name our project.
The name should reflect the purpose and content of the program.
Project can be stored in any folder according to your needs. It is a good
thing to have that folder remind you of PIC microcontrollers; we named the
folder simply PIC in the image below.
Naming the project
Upon naming the project, click on NEXT to
open the summary window.
