PIC Tutor boards from AMS use the Microchip PIC microcontroller. They all include LCD display, four seven segment display, serial interface to IBM compatible PC and expansion bus connector.

The expansion bus connector on the main board is very important, because it allows the student to connect to lab projects. The student can design his or her own lab project and connect it to the main microprocessor board using wire-wrap board. The additional lab project board allows the student to learn hardware design, as well as software design.


An Integrated Part of the Program

The PIC Tutor COURSEWARE book is an integrated curriculum that has a student version and instructor’s version of the workbook. The workbook contains exactly what you need to know to make complex subjects easy-to-learn.

The workbook contains detailed explanations of theory and also includes different lab projects for students to complete. Each chapter ends with questions and suggested lab projects.

The instructor workbook includes the answers to all the questions, provides the schematic designs of all the hardware lab projects and has a software listing of all the software lab projects.
