Hello

I don't have much knowledge in PIC but have used BasicStamp few

years ago.

What I like to make is the controller with 5 infrared sensor elements

and two relay outputs.

I am working on about twenty years old printing press and very old

controller.

This controller have been giving me lots of headache with

intermittent shut down or fouls alarms.

Machine is very old but worth million dollars and the owner won't get

rid of this.



I may be able to achieve my project by small PLC but I would like to

try this with micro controller first.

I checked Motorola, National Semi, Stamp and Microchip. I found

Microchip Web site the most interesting.



My first question is how do I find the best programmer kit.

I am using AN865 and follow every thing in this application note.

www.microchip.com/1010/suppdoc/appnote/all/an865/index.htm



Second, do you know any very book to read to use PIC?



Thank you

You might go this site www.melabs.com/ for Mplab compiler and check

out Epic programmer (about $50). Someone posted about 2 wks ago about a book

"Programming and Customizing Picmicro Microcontrollers" ISBN 0-07-136172-3"

by Myke Predko about 1200 pages($48). I bought one and it worked great for

me. Or, if you're not wanting to get in to deep in this, you might try "Easy

Step'n" by David Benson. It has basic info and some board schematics and

codes that you might be able to use in your application.

good luck
