This website supports the book Embedded Design with the PIC18F452 Microcontroller written by John Peatman (Prentice Hall, 2003) in support of Microchip Technology's PIC18F family of microcontrollers.
Here you will find example pages from the book, program code examples, and utilities. You will also find information about the QwikFlash board used as a vehicle for the code examples. Everything you need to get going is available from MICRODESIGNS, INC. as Part No. QF-KIT1 ($126). This includes a fully populated QwikFlash board, a QwikBug-programmed PIC18F452, a power supply, and a serial cable.
The QwikBug utility programmed into the PIC18F452 permits a user to download a program, run it, set a breakpoint, examine and change register and RAM contents, single-step, and view watch variables.
