APPLICATION NOTES

The application notes listed here illustrate capabilities of the TICkit products and demonstrate new ideas and techniques. Take special notice of the version of TICkit being used in the examples relative to the version you have (*Why???*).

The TICkit 63 and TICkit 74 are virtually identical at their core. The TICkit 74 simply has more I/O and 8 bit A/D capabilities. Most examples given for the TICkit 63 will work on the TICkit 74 with little or no modification.

The TICkit 62 is a subset of the TICkit 63/74, therefore, most examples for the 62 will also work on the TICkit 63/74. The superior capabilities of the 63 and 74 may make some methods utilized in the 62 irrelevant. Most examples for the older TICkit 57* will work with little or no modification on the TICkit 62 and the new TICkit 63.

The TICkit 57 has an entirely different pin-out and lacks many of the capabilities of the newer processors. The TICkit 57 is NOT recommended for new designs, but is shown here for educational purposes and to support existing user applications.

Application notes are summarized several ways. The files are PDF files and are viewable using Adobe's Acrobat reader. There may be links to ZIP files which contain PCB layouts, instruction code etc. The schematic and/or Printed Circuit Layout are all in Protel, Inc's EasyTrax format. Also, keep in mind that any computer code contained in the notes can be cut and pasted into the TICkit IDE for easy experimentation.

Protean Logic Inc. does not ensure the accuracy of the information in these files. If you find an inaccuracy, please contact us for additional support.
