The terminal is a cool thing, but sometimes the app is more handy thing to use, plus it simply more attractive than a blank black window. At the moment I was exploring C++ Builder and decide to make a simple GUI for my devboard, so I can control it from my PC.
The goal: the same as previous, to get the 1KHz pulse.
What do we have: PIC16f628a, the simple devboard + proteus.
For this particular uC the timer2 module is another 8bits timer, which has some peculiarities.
Interruptions are one of the great things about microcontrollers, if you want to do something fast, reliable, and simple… well, not exactly simple in a programming language sense perhaps, but really simpler from the hardware perspective point of view. So, the main purpose of interruption is to interrupt your main program cycle and do whatever you want in case of that event (a timer has reached the settled time, a button has been pressed, and so on). Here is the picture from the mikroe ebook (www.mikroe.com), just because they really made quite nice pictures and quite a nice manual by the way.
