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.
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
