    Hi all!

    Our Robotics Instructor gave us a simple robot project and we will need to have a start with a PIC LOADER. I tried searching samples of its schematic diagram but just can't find one.

    Might you can help me find a schematic diagram for PIC LOADER and a PCB layout, plus materials if any.

    Thanks.

    Ah question..

    Do PICs have same functions?

    Manipulate robots movement just like that? Cause thats what were told but not sure exactly if this is the PIC for this.

    So can anyone help me find a schematic or pcb layout for PIC16F84 or PIC16F84A?

    a PIC is a microcontroller.

    You can get a datasheet for it that will indicate the function of each pin.
    To use it, you must feed code into the PIC's ROM. The code is a set of instructions that the chip uses to set values of certain pins. It is simply a computer and a ROM bound together when you think about it.

    Did your robotics instructor cover the PIC (or microcontrollers in general) in any of his discussions? It's not exactly something you assign without covering in great detail.

    I would think something a bit simpler, such as a stamp, would suit you better.
