Design and development of a project-based embedded system laboratory using PIC 18F25K20

Abstract

In this Design and development of a project-based embedded system laboratory using PIC 18F25K20. paper we present experiments and projects which gives hands-on experience to the students who start working with microcontrollers initially. As PIC microcontrollers have become popular and are one of the best microcontrollers to start working with in an introductory embedded system laboratory, we have chosen PIC 18F25K20 microcontroller available on the market in a palm size module by name: AMICUS.

If it is a introductory laboratory course on microcontrollers, it gives an opportunity for the student to use his previous knowledge on basic electronic circuits, digital system design, computer architecture and software development. This paper is not only useful for academics but also useful for amateur electronics hobbyist.

In this paper, we solve the problem of student comprehension and skill development in embedded system design using microcontroller chip PIC16F887 by demonstration of hands-on laboratory experiments.

Conclusion

In this Design and development of a project-based embedded system laboratory using PIC 18F25K20 paper, bunch of experiments are designed and developed using Amicus 18 development board. These Design and development of a project-based embedded system laboratory using PIC 18F25K20 experiments can be introduced in a laboratory course as take-home experiments, because of its low cost. The hands-on experience a student gets by performing these experiments definitely gives a confidence to think and develop a complex embedded system, which is very much essential in the present scenario
