The purpose of this repository is to document the curve tracer project. A full description may be found at for(embed).
IDE and Compiler
Any flavor of MPLAB X IDE and XC16 compiler that supports the PIC24FV16KM202 should work just fine. An optimization level of -O1 is recommended to reduce code size, which will allow future features to fit within the limited flash memory of the device.
I am currently using a Microchip ICD3. You should be able to use a PICkit3 or REAL ICE as well. The PICkit3 is the most economical solution at around $40 US.
