Hello, is there a microcontroller that can be programmed in a very basic language
what would you suggest that would help me learn c. I've tried it before and it was kind of difficult.
i thought that it would be faster but now that i think about it, it would probably be fast enought with 5 volts.
are only PICs can be augmented?
I am working on my own mcu right now and will post some schematics if you are interested.
Does it matter if the pins used are less or more than required? How would I know how many pins to use?

We're actually choosing between PIC24FJ and dsPIC33FJ... Are they too much for a simple project?

Are they too much for a simple project?I'd recommend the lower series -- specifically 16F88 or 18F2550 for simpler projects just because you have much less complexity to deal with. I mean, do you really want to configure 34 different options in the configuration fuses when you just want to move a servo? But, you don't want to go too simple, like the ancient (but trusty) 16F84, because you want a more recent one that has more code space, RAM, and hardware peripherals. HW peripherals like the USART or CCP module make interfacing with things a lot easier and faster than if done in software.Also, have you thought about what compiler and programmer you're going to use with the 24F and dsPIC? Neither will come cheaply, but compilers for the 16F and 18F are oftentimes free, and the programmers are next to free.-Xo W.
