PIC16F VS PIC18F:Analysis of PIC Mid-Range 8 bit family and Advanced 8-bits Family

PIC Microcontroller is one of the popular device among student and hobbyist. Microchip Technology is a giant for embedded system. Every year, they produce different product for different application range from beginner training kit to advanced application such as medical instrumentation and robotic. A lot of people wonder which device should start with when exploring PIC MCU? So in this tutorial, i will guide you the software and hardware features of 2 PIC families :Mid-range 8 bit MCU(PIC 16 series) and Advanced 8 bits MCU(PIC18 series)

DS18B20 Temperature Sensor

Introduction The DS18B20 digital thermometer provides 9-bit to 12-bit Celsius temperature measurements and has an alarm function with nonvolatile user-programmable upper and lower trigger points. The DS18B20 communicates over a 1-Wire® bus that by definition requires only one data line
