This project is a discussion on how to program PIC10F200 chips.
We are not selling the program or the project. Go to Mike McLaren - Micro Application Consultants for details on these things.
We are just teaching how to write a program PIC10F200 chips.
We have specialised in presenting programs for the simplest PIC chip: the PIC12F629 and the PIC10F200 is even smaller in size and pin-count.
It has 3 in-out lines and one input-only line. It has 256 locations for your program and the 16 General Purpose Registers are located between 10h and 1Fh.
It has only a 2-level stack and one 8-bit timer. All the other features are the same as the PIC12F629 and if you want to produce something extremely small, this chip is the challenge for you.
The first IGNITION SWITCH program has been written by a very qualified programmer and shows what can be done with this 6 pin chip, but the program also contains a number of difficult-to-understand instructions, with some of them coming from a list that only expert programmers understand.
The second IGNITION SWITCH program has been written by Colin Mitchell and is much easier to understand. if you study them both, you will gain a lot of understanding on how to create a program.
Here’s what the circuit does:
Put your Ignition Switch and Starter into one unit. The push-switch has a blue LED to indicate when the ignition is “On.” Push and hold the button while the starter turns over and release when the engine starts. The ignition stays “On.” Push again to stop the engine. You’ve seen it on new, top-end luxury cars. . .now it can be in your car, too.
If you are going to burn the program yourself, you will need a PICkit-2 programmer.You should read about programming PIC chips by looking on Talking Electronics website, under Elektor,EPE,Silicon Chip. and see Multi Chip Programmer.
