PICmicro courses














As embedded computer technology becomes more prevalent in today's society and a part of our lives, the use of embedded control systems has changed the way we, as a society, live and interact with our environment.

Everything from our vehicles, kitchens, sports, medicine, and communications (just to mention a few), has been affected by this revolution.

Many computers do not look like desktop PCs simply because you cannot see them at all. These invisible computers are hidden or "embedded" within a larger system or product. Embedded computers provide better control for a larger system. The components of many embedded computers fit on a single printed circuit board, making an embedded computer compact and economical.

The stringent real-world, real-time requirements of control applications mean that the hardware and software of embedded computers are distinctly different from ordinary desktop PCs.

e-CHIP INFOTEK (P) LTD., is authorised by Microchip Technology Inc., U.S.A. to conduct PICmicro courses and issue certificates.

For those students and engineers who intend to learn only PICmicro architecture and programming, a crash course is conducted which will enable the engineer to write their own products using PICmicro.
