Microchip Certified Training - PIC16/PIC12 Foundation Workshop using Assembly Code — A 3 day course

contact usEnquire about this course


This hands-on course aims to provide engineers with an understanding of the PIC16/PIC12 families of microcontrollers and experience of using Microchip development tools to create and debug simple assembly language programs.

The emphasis is on providing a solid foundation of knowledge of the architecture and features of this range of microcontrollers, together with practical experience of the development tools and the steps required to embark on a new development.

The course includes many practical workshop exercises which are interleaved with the relevant presentation material for maximum impact and variety. These exercises are carried out using MPLAB® software running on a Windows® PC, an MPLAB® ICD2 programmer/debugger and a target development board containing a PIC16C / PIC16F microcontroller on which programs created during the exercises can be observed to be running in real-time.


This course will enable delegates with the following skills:


Overview of Microchip and the PIC16 / PIC12 family of micro-controllers

Overview of Development Tools

Laboratory Workshops Include:

Suitable For

This course is aimed at engineers with some understanding of microelectronics and programming who are new to the PIC16C / PIC16F architecture, or wish to fill in gaps in their knowledge.


Familiarity with the Windows environment on a Personal Computer, and with fundamental concepts such as bits, bytes, Boolean logic and addressing is assumed.

Some experience of assembly language on microprocessors or other microcontrollers will be useful background for an understanding of the more advanced concepts presented during this course.
