Rationale
PIC Microcontrollers are being extensively used in the field of Embedded Systems. The students studying this subject are supposed to learn the architecture of a PIC Microcontroller and also get acquainted about their use for control purpose. In addition, the course will provide the knowledge of applications and interfacing of PIC microcontrollers used in the field of instrumentation & control. Thus this course is very useful for instrumentation engineers working in the area of embedded systems.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire required learning out comes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes:

i. Identify and understand function of different blocks of PIC microcontroller.
ii. Develop programs for data transfer, arithmetic, logical and I/O port operations.
iii. Develop programs for PIC18 using “C”.
iv. Develop program for PIC18 Timers, Serial port and Interrupts using “C”.
v. Interface LCD, Keyboard, ADC, DAC, Sensors, Relays, DC motor and Stepper motor with PIC18 microcontroller.
