  1. [HELP!] Is it no Timer INTERRUPT on MicroChip PIC16C54?

    I checked the spec., and can't find the INTCON register. Is it there are no
    interrupt on MicroChip PIC16C54?

    Correct! Ancient microchip technology.

    Nope. With No interrupts, power hog, parallel programmable only, no
    periperals at all, limited memory, and limited jump/call space (only into 1st
    part of the page) frankly even if you have one (and I think that I still do
    have a 16C55 somewhere around here) it's not worth using.

    Check out Randy Jones Glitchbusters PIC page to see the latest offerings. The
    16F88 is looking like the ultimate PIC in the 18 pin format. But even a lowly
    16F628 is so much better that it is almost too good to believe.

    I have a page on the obsolesence of the 16F84 here:

    And for almost any project the 16F84 put the 16C54 out of business.

    That's something to think about.

    I really hate following up my own posts!

    Hi BAJ

    Thank you for the update on the new PIC chips.
    It seems a good idea not to get carried away stocking up on favrite PIC chips,
    as the technology marches on at an exponential rate.
