8-Bit Embedded Resource Catalog

Friday 17 February, 2006

Check out CCS in the the latest 8-Bit Embedded Resource Catalog by Extension Media. This is the third year in a row that CCS has participated in this publication, along with Microchip. Please visit their website to view the publication if you are not on their mailing list:

NEW PIC12F683 Prototyping Board

Friday 17 February, 2006

CCS is proud to support the PIC12F683 from Microchip. Our new prototyping board will replace the PIC12F675 and be pin-for-pin compatible. The new PIC12F683 board features the 8 pin PIC12F683 chip and its ICD version that supports debugging. This Low Pin-count (8) PIC® Flash microcontroller offers on-chip EEPROM Data Memory, nanoWatt Technology, an analog comparator module with a single comparator, and a programmable on-chip voltage reference. This chip also comes with a Precision internal oscillator, software selectable BOR, and extended WDT.

These boards will be available in a Development kit (with or without software) and as a board-only kit.

Embedded Ethernet Board

Friday 17 February, 2006

CCS has designed a new prototyping board focused on the new Ethernet chip from Microchip, the ENC28J60. The ENC28J60 is an SPI controlled, 10Mbit/sec, full duplex Ethernet transceiver IC. The Embedded Ethernet prototyping board includes many features our customers have come to love from our other development boards: a potentiometer, a push-button, 3 user-controlled LEDs, an RS232 level converter and a header for easy access to all I/O on the included PIC18F4520. It also has a LCD, a serial EEPROM, and a MMC/SD card reader. Support, such as drivers and example TCP/IP code for the ENC28J60, is available to CCS customers using the CCS C Compiler.

Please email to request the drivers and code for ENC28J60.

Microchip's Consultant Program

Wednesday 22 March, 2006

Microchip created the Microchip Technology Consultant Program to assist with customer designs using PIC® MCU microcontrollers and other Microchip digital signal controls, analog ICs, and serial EEPROMs. To meet the growing market demand for embedded systems design and electronics design expertise, companies rely on Microchip Consultants to provide technical solutions and support.

Members of the Authorized Consultant Program must participate in a rigorous interview process, meet several design qualifications, and maintain a standard of quality and excellence while utilizing products from Microchip.

CCS in April Circuit Cellar

Wednesday 22 March, 2006

Jean Paul Talledo used the CCS C Compiler and PIC® MCU microcontrollers to construct a data acquisition system for mobile applications. Jean's wireless sensor network and position-tracking system can be used to monitor a vehicle's acceleration, temperature, and more. Accumulated data is then relayed to an Internet database server.

Review the April issue of Circuit Cellar magazine to read the full story, entitled "Data Acquisition for Mobile Applications."

810 MIPS Multi-Processor Demonstration

Saturday 01 April, 2006

CCS is showcasing a design of 81 cooperating PIC18F8525 chips at the Microchip MASTERs Conference in Chandler, AZ at the end of July. The cubes are designed to be modular and communicate on a serial bus at 810 MIPS. This display has been updated since Embedded Systems Conference in San Jose to include new graphic imagery and The Game of Life.

Multiple User License Policy

Monday 24 April, 2006

CCS offers volume licensing with the Multiple User Licenses. This allows companies who have multiple users working on the same project, each requiring his or her own C Compiler, to save money on software.

One Multiple User License will license one additional user or computer, in addition to the original compiler.

Certain restrictions apply. Please click here for the complete policy.

Product Release: Wireless Development Kit - ZMD Edition

Wednesday 07 June, 2006

The Wireless Development Kit - ZMD Edition will be released for sale on Friday, June 16th.

CCS Teaching at MASTERs

Wednesday 07 June, 2006

At this year's Microchip MASTERs conference, CCS will be conducting a hands-on seminar entitled 1092 CCS: Using the CCS Compiler for Rapid Development of Microcontroller Applications. The class aims at improving the skills of programmers using the CCS C Compiler and provides hands-on experience with our compiler, IDE, and debugger. This is an excellent opportunity for new or experienced CCS users to learn about the powerful features of the CCS C Compiler.

MASTERs is a highly technical conference run yearly by Microchip in an effort to advance the knowledge of Microchip developers. This year MASTERs will be at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix, AZ. The dates are July 26 - 29, 2006. Register today, and be sure to sign up for our class!
