I learned about coding a controller, but never actually put the code on the physical device. I am trying to figure out what I need to order to start developing a basic embedded system.
For example, if I have a PIC18F1330, I have MPLAB IDE and XC8 compiler. Great, so I have the code compiled, and I’m ready to put this on the controller. What do I need to have to have to transfer my compiled code on my PC, onto the controller?
I’ve seen things like an in-circuit debugger, and a PIC kit. I’m just lost at this point.
