Introducing the PIC16F690, an ideal microcontroller for any hobbyist. This ultra-compact sensation packs a huge punch in a tiny package. With 20 pins, five of which are dedicated analog inputs, the PIC16F690 is perfect for building smaller projects with plenty of expansion space.

The PIC16F range of microcontrollers from Microchip is 8-bit MCUs that incorporate Microchip’s PIC® architecture into a variety of pin and package options, from space-efficient 14-pin devices to feature-rich 64-pin devices. Devices with Baseline, Mid-Range, or Enhanced Mid-Range architecture are available with numerous different peripheral combinations, giving designers flexibility and choice for their applications.

The PIC16F631/677/685/687/689/690 family of microcontrollers is based upon Microchip’s Mid-range core with an 8-level deep hardware stack and 35 instructions. These MCUs provide up to 5 MIPS, up to 7 Kbytes program memory, up to 256 bytes RAM and Data EEPROM of up to 256 bytes. On board is a configurable oscillator factory calibrated to ±1% accuracy.

How To Programm The PIC16F690

The above video shows you how to program the PIC chip as well as tells you more about microcontrollers. The PIC16F690 can only be programmed with the IDE the above video shows you, other PIC microcontroller chips should be programmed in the same manner.

Equipment required to program and how to use it

The above video will show you what you need to be able to program the PIC microcontroller chips. The PIC microcontroller chips don't have a bootloader so you will require a PICKit programmer to be able to program the PIC microcontroller chip.
