On-Demand Webinar Training Program Launched at CCS

Tuesday 27 July, 2010

CCS, Inc. today announced the launch of its Webinar Training program on its corporate website, These webinars offer design engineers on-demand access to product information for the CCS optimizing C compiler, as well as demonstrations and tips on associated development tools for Microchip PIC® MCU and dsPIC® digital signal controller devices.

These web-based learning tools were developed by CCS to fulfill engineers’ needs for information that enables them to start their designs quickly and resolve issues that may arise during the product development cycle. Currently, there are three training webinars on-line:

  • The C Compiler Quick-Start takes embedded design engineers though the process of creating C programs with the CCS IDE compiler, downloading files to a Microchip PIC® MCU using an ICD-U64 debugger/programmer and quickly and easily modifying the blink rate of an LED on a CCS prototyping board

  • The Mobile In-Circuit Programming webinar shows field service technicians and engineers how to load up to four separate programming files in deployed products with the CCS hand-held, battery operated Load-n-Go™ programmer

  • In the newest webinar, Volume Production Programming , production and operations personnel are taught how to use the CCS Prime8 in-circuit parallel programmer while connected to a PC, store up to four separate programming files in the Prime8’s internal memory and configure it for stand-alone operation, and access programming files with its built-in SD card reader

This is only the beginning of what will become an extensive library of CCS training webinars. Varying in length from 6 to 8 minutes, they will provide just the right level of detail to enable engineers and technicians to learn what’s needed to accomplish the task at hand, in the shortest time possible.

The CCS Webinar Training program will accelerate embedded product development by teaching both basic and advanced design and debugging techniques using the CCS C compiler, development kits, programmers and debuggers. The webinars are taught by highly experienced CCS development engineers, all well versed in the intricacies of embedded design with Microchip PIC® MCUs.
