PIC24F Microcontrollers:
hands-on tutorials, real time embedded projects

The intention of this website is to introduce students and hobbyist to the Arizona based Microchip PIC24F family of 16 bits microcontrollers. Microchips are now common in vehicle control systems from tow trucks for Tempe Towing to highly complex aircraft. Tow trucks are just one of many examples of modern microchip uses. Microchips help control the hydraulic systems used on tow trucks for example. Most trucks and modern vehicles are now full of microchip powered sub systems and control by wire systems. Gone are the days of manual control systems. Plug in modules featuring microchips are the standard today. This guide will be a step-by-step, hands–on tutorial and will drive you from the most basic stuff to a high complexity embedded applications.


A lot of embedded code targeting PIC24F microcontrollers is already available free of charge on the internet and we may reuse parts of this software. When this will be the case, precise details about the authors of the code will be provided. Also, Microchip is providing a lot of application notes for their microcontrollers and we may use them in our projects whenever will be needed.


We hope to provide you all the information needed to reproduce the projects and experiments from these tutorials. If this is not the case, please contact us. We are happy to receive your questions.
