Many computers especially portable ones do not have a serial port (COM Port) anymore. When a connection to a Personal Computer (PC) is required, a USB is the choice. The Universal Serial Bus (USB) is the widely used interface in electronic consumer products today. Most of electronic devices have at least one USB port on them, this include PCs, cameras, GPS devices, printers and so on. Some PIC18 microcontrollers support USB interface directly. 16bits (PIC24) and 32-bits (PIC32) pic microcontrollers have also an embedded USB interface. In this article we will learn how a communication between a host PC and a microcontroller can be achieved with a USB bus.
Microchip Libraries for Applications (MLA) is a collection of Microchip firmware libraries, drivers, demo projects, documentation and utilities for different type of applications including USB, Graphic displays, File I/O (Memory cards), TCP IP, Smartphone and many more. Not all firmware libraries and demo projects from Microchip are distributed in this package; rather, this package includes a few specific libraries that tend to be used together. By distributing libraries that are used often together, Microchip can provide example projects that integrate the use of multiple libraries.
