Using the Peripheral Pin Select feature on a PIC24

Say that 5 times fast!

pic24fjxxgb004Part 6 of Modtronics Australia’s PIC24 tutorial series,  Modtronics shows you how to use the Peripheral Pin Select feature on a PIC24 microcontroller.  This feature allows you to remap which pins are tied to which peripheral such as uart, I2c, SPI, etc.  Very useful feature when it comes to laying out a board, allowing you to lay things out because of convenience rather than necessity.  This could also lead to reusing of a certain pinout adapter across multiple configurations since it can be selected via software.

    Thanks for posting this – I’ve found these tutorials very useful this weekend!! Helped me solve a couple of problems I was having getting my uC up and running.

    I have to say, I really like the PIC24 microcontrollers, I haven’t been using them for very long, but they seem powerful and pretty easy to use. A good combo.

    After some success I’m considering buying one of the Modtronics development boards, the picoTRONICS24 – http://modtronicsaustralia.com/shop/picotronics24-pic24-development-kit/. I think having a proper development board might save me quite a lot of time in the long run, it might also save me pulling out my remaining hair.

    Anyway, thanks again for posting it.
