A microcontroller can be considered a self-contained system with a processor, memory and peripherals and can be used as an embedded system. The majority of microcontrollers in use today are embedded in other machinery, such as automobiles, telephones, appliances, and peripherals for computer systems.
Parts of the PIC Microcontroller include :
- Universal Asynchronous Read/Write Transmission
- Input/Output Pins
- Analog-To-Digital Convertor
- Memory Unit
