    Hi
    I got interest in programming and started with the 16F84A using Picbasic.
    followed the diagram on how to make it run it worked fine that was:

    4.7K resister on the MCLR pin to 5Volts
    Vss to ground
    Vdd to 5 volt liine and decoupled with a .1 to ground
    Osc1 and osc2 4 meg crystal plus 2 x 22pf capacitors to ground.

    this works OK

    I now want to try using the 16F877 my question: if I follow the above again will it work OK or can anyone tell me what the basics would be to make it run or a URL I can look at for this basic info

    Thanks a lot

    Lynny :oops:
