Richard Wall: I/O Control

Today, we’re going to revisit Richard Wall’s chipKIT Pro module. Last week, we learned how to get started with chipKIT Pro and MPLAB X. This week’s posts covers the methods of reading from and writing to the input and output (I/O) pins of the PIC32 microcontroller. Dr. Wall also presents software modeling concepts using data flow diagrams and control flow diagrams.

The project “chipKIT Pro and I/O Control”  highlights I/O control in general while focusing on that specific to the PIC32 microcontroller. It builds on last week’s post and prepares you for delving more deeply into microcontroller usage.
