DEVICE OVERVIEW
This document contains device specific information for
the operation of the PIC16F87/88 devices. Additional
information may be found in the “PIC® Mid-Range MCU
Family Reference Manual” (DS33023) which may be
downloaded from the Microchip web site. This
Reference Manual should be considered a complementary document to this data sheet and is highly
recommended reading for a better understanding of the
device architecture and operation of the peripheral
modules.
The PIC16F87/88 belongs to the Mid-Range family of
the PIC® devices. Block diagrams of the devices are
shown in Figure 1-1 and Figure 1-2. These devices
contain features that are new to the PIC16 product line:
• Low-power modes: RC_RUN allows the core and
peripherals to be clocked from the INTRC, while
SEC_RUN allows the core and peripherals to be
clocked from the low-power Timer1. Refer to
Section 4.7 “Power-Managed Modes” for
further details.
• Internal RC oscillator with eight selectable
frequencies, including 31.25 kHz, 125 kHz,
250 kHz, 500 kHz, 1 MHz, 2 MHz, 4 MHz and
8 MHz. The INTRC can be configured as a
primary or secondary clock source. Refer to
Section 4.5 “Internal Oscillator Block” for
further details.
• The Timer1 module current consumption has
been greatly reduced from 20 A (previous PIC16
devices) to 1.8 A typical (32 kHz at 2V), which is
ideal for real-time clock applications. Refer to
Section 7.0 “Timer1 Module” for further details.
• Extended Watchdog Timer (WDT) that can have a
programmable period from 1 ms to 268s. The
WDT has its own 16-bit prescaler. Refer to
Section 15.12 “Watchdog Timer (WDT)” for
further details.
• Two-Speed Start-up: When the oscillator is
configured for LP, XT or HS Oscillator mode, this
feature will clock the device from the INTRC while
the oscillator is warming up. This, in turn, will
enable almost immediate code execution. Refer
to Section 15.12.3 “Two-Speed Clock Start-up
Mode” for further details.
• Fail-Safe Clock Monitor: This feature will allow the
device to continue operation if the primary or
secondary clock source fails by switching over to
the INTRC.
• The A/D module has a new register for PIC16
devices named ANSEL. This register allows
easier configuration of analog or digital I/O pins.

MEMORY ORGANIZATION
FIGURE 2-1:
There are two memory blocks in the PIC16F87/88
devices. These are the program memory and the data
memory. Each block has its own bus, so access to each
block can occur during the same oscillator cycle.
PC<12:0>
CALL, RETURN
RETFIE, RETLW
The data memory can be further broken down into the
general purpose RAM and the Special Function
Registers (SFRs). The operation of the SFRs that
control the “core” are described here. The SFRs used
to control the peripheral modules are described in the
section discussing each individual peripheral module.
The data memory area also contains the data EEPROM
memory. This memory is not directly mapped into the
data memory but is indirectly mapped. That is, an indirect address pointer specifies the address of the data
EEPROM memory to read/write. The PIC16F87/88
device’s 256 bytes of data EEPROM memory have the
address range of 00h-FFh. More details on the
EEPROM memory can be found in Section 3.0 “Data
EEPROM and Flash Program Memory”.
Additional information on device memory may be found
in the “PIC® Mid-Range MCU Family Reference Manual” (DS33023).

Program Memory Organization
The PIC16F87/88 devices have a 13-bit program counter capable of addressing an 8K x 14 program memory
space. For the PIC16F87/88, the first 4K x 14 (0000h0FFFh) is physically implemented (see Figure 2-1).
Accessing a location above the physically implemented
address will cause a wraparound. For example, the
same instruction will be accessed at locations 020h,
420h, 820h, C20h, 1020h, 1420h, 1820h and 1C20h.
The Reset vector is at 0000h and the interrupt vector is
at 0004h.

2.2
Data Memory Organization
The data memory is partitioned into multiple banks that
contain the General Purpose Registers and the Special
Function Registers. Bits RP1 (STATUS<6>) and RP0
(STATUS<5>) are the bank select bits.
RP1:RP0
Bank

Each bank extends up to 7Fh (128 bytes). The lower
locations of each bank are reserved for the Special
Function Registers. Above the Special Function Registers are General Purpose Registers, implemented as
static RAM. All implemented banks contain SFRs.
Some “high use” SFRs from one bank may be mirrored
in another bank for code reduction and quicker access
(e.g., the STATUS register is in Banks 0-3).

SPECIAL FUNCTION REGISTERS
The Special Function Registers are registers used by
the CPU and peripheral modules for controlling the
desired operation of the device. These registers are
implemented as static RAM. A list of these registers is
given in Table 2-1.
TABLE 2-1:
Address
The Special Function Registers can be classified into
two sets: core (CPU) and peripheral. Those registers
associated with the core functions are described in
detail in this section. Those related to the operation of
the peripheral features are described in detail in the
peripheral feature section.

STATUS Register
The STATUS register, shown in Register 2-1, contains
the arithmetic status of the ALU, the Reset status and
the bank select bits for data memory.
The STATUS register can be the destination for any
instruction, as with any other register. If the STATUS
register is the destination for an instruction that affects
the Z, DC or C bits, then the write to these three bits is
disabled. These bits are set or cleared according to the
device logic. Furthermore, the TO and PD bits are not
writable. Therefore, the result of an instruction with the
STATUS register as destination may be different than
intended.
REGISTER 2-1:
For example, CLRF STATUS will clear the upper three
bits and set the Z bit. This leaves the STATUS register
as ‘000u u1uu’ (where u = unchanged).
It is recommended, therefore, that only BCF, BSF, SWAPF
and MOVWF instructions are used to alter the STATUS
register because these instructions do not affect the Z, C
or DC bits from the STATUS register. For other
instructions not affecting any Status bits, see
Section 16.0 “Instruction Set Summary”.
Note:
The C and DC bits operate as a borrow
and digit borrow bit, respectively, in
subtraction. See the SUBLW and SUBWF
instructions for examples.

OPTION_REG Register
Note:
The OPTION_REG register is a readable and writable
register that contains various control bits to configure
the TMR0 prescaler/WDT postscaler (single assignable register known also as the prescaler), the external
INT interrupt, TMR0 and the weak pull-ups on PORTB.
REGISTER 2-2:
To achieve a 1:1 prescaler assignment for
the TMR0 register, assign the prescaler to
the Watchdog Timer. Although the prescaler can be assigned to either the WDT or
Timer0, but not both, a new divide counter
is implemented in the WDT circuit to give
multiple WDT time-out selections. This
allows TMR0 and WDT to each have their
own scaler. Refer to Section 15.12
“Watchdog Timer (WDT)” for further
details.

PCL and PCLATH
The Program Counter (PC) is 13 bits wide. The low
byte comes from the PCL register which is a readable
and writable register. The upper bits (PC<12:8>) are
not readable but are indirectly writable through the
PCLATH register. On any Reset, the upper bits of the
PC will be cleared. Figure 2-4 shows the two situations
for the loading of the PC. The upper example in the
figure shows how the PC is loaded on a write to PCL
(PCLATH<4:0>  PCH). The lower example in the
figure shows how the PC is loaded during a CALL or
GOTO instruction (PCLATH<4:3>  PCH).

2.4
Program Memory Paging
All PIC16F87/88 devices are capable of addressing a
continuous 8K word block of program memory. The
CALL and GOTO instructions provide only 11 bits of
address to allow branching within any 2K program
memory page. When doing a CALL or GOTO instruction,
the upper 2 bits of the address are provided by
PCLATH<4:3>. When doing a CALL or GOTO instruction, the user must ensure that the page select bits are
programmed so that the desired program memory
page is addressed. If a return from a CALL instruction
(or interrupt) is executed, the entire 13-bit PC is popped
off the stack. Therefore, manipulation of the
PCLATH<4:3> bits is not required for the RETURN
instructions (which POPs the address from the stack).
Note:

COMPUTED GOTO
A computed GOTO is accomplished by adding an offset
to the program counter (ADDWF PCL). When doing a
table read using a computed GOTO method, care
should be exercised if the table location crosses a PCL
memory boundary (each 256-byte block). Refer to the
application note, AN556, “Implementing a Table Read”.
2.3.2
Example 2-1 shows the calling of a subroutine in
page 1 of the program memory. This example assumes
that PCLATH is saved and restored by the Interrupt
Service Routine (if interrupts are used).
EXAMPLE 2-1:
The stack operates as a circular buffer. This means that
after the stack has been PUSHed eight times, the ninth
push overwrites the value that was stored from the first
push. The tenth push overwrites the second push (and
so on).

STACK
The PIC16F87/88 family has an 8-level deep x 13-bit
wide hardware stack. The stack space is not part of
either program or data space and the Stack Pointer is not
readable or writable. The PC is PUSHed onto the stack
when a CALL instruction is executed or an interrupt
causes a branch. The stack is POPed in the event of a
RETURN, RETLW or a RETFIE instruction execution.
PCLATH is not affected by a PUSH or POP operation.
The contents of the PCLATH register are
unchanged after a RETURN or RETFIE
instruction is executed. The user must
rewrite the contents of the PCLATH register for any subsequent subroutine calls or
GOTO instructions.

Indirect Addressing, INDF and
FSR Registers
A simple program to clear RAM locations 20h-2Fh
using indirect addressing is shown in Example 2-2.
The INDF register is not a physical register. Addressing
the INDF register will cause indirect addressing.
EXAMPLE 2-2:
Indirect addressing is possible by using the INDF register. Any instruction using the INDF register actually
accesses the register pointed to by the File Select Register, FSR. Reading the INDF register itself, indirectly
(FSR = 0) will read 00h. Writing to the INDF register
indirectly results in a no operation (although status bits
may be affected). An effective 9-bit address is obtained
by concatenating the 8-bit FSR register and the IRP bit
(STATUS<7>), as shown in Figure 2-5.

DATA EEPROM AND FLASH
PROGRAM MEMORY
The data EEPROM and Flash program memory are
readable and writable during normal operation (over
the full VDD range). This memory is not directly mapped
in the register file space. Instead, it is indirectly
addressed through the Special Function Registers.
There are six SFRs used to read and write this
memory:
•
•
•
•
•
•
EECON1
EECON2
EEDATA
EEDATH
EEADR
EEADRH
This section focuses on reading and writing data
EEPROM and Flash program memory during normal
operation. Refer to the appropriate device programming specification document for serial programming
information.
When interfacing the data memory block, EEDATA
holds the 8-bit data for read/write and EEADR holds the
address of the EEPROM location being accessed. The
PIC16F87/88 devices have 256 bytes of data
EEPROM with an address range from 00h to 0FFh.
When writing to unimplemented locations, the charge
pump will be turned off.
When interfacing the program memory block, the EEDATA and EEDATH registers form a two-byte word that
holds the 14-bit data for read/write and the EEADR and
EEADRH registers form a two-byte word that holds the
13-bit address of the EEPROM location being
accessed. The PIC16F87/88 devices have 4K words of
program Flash with an address range from 0000h to
0FFFh. Addresses above the range of the respective
device will wraparound to the beginning of program
memory.
The EEPROM data memory allows single byte read
and write. The Flash program memory allows singleword reads and four-word block writes. Program
memory writes must first start with a 32-word block
erase, then write in 4-word blocks. A byte write in data
EEPROM memory automatically erases the location
and writes the new data (erase before write).
The write time is controlled by an on-chip timer. The
write/erase voltages are generated by an on-chip
charge pump, rated to operate over the voltage range
of the device for byte or word operations.
 2002-2013 Microchip Technology Inc.
When the device is code-protected, the CPU may
continue to read and write the data EEPROM memory.
Depending on the settings of the write-protect bits, the
device may or may not be able to write certain blocks
of the program memory; however, reads of the program
memory are allowed. When code-protected, the device
programmer can no longer access data or program
memory; this does NOT inhibit internal reads or writes.
3.1
EEADR and EEADRH
The EEADRH:EEADR register pair can address up to
a maximum of 256 bytes of data EEPROM, or up to a
maximum of 8K words of program EEPROM. When
selecting a data address value, only the LSB of the
address is written to the EEADR register. When selecting a program address value, the MSB of the address
is written to the EEADRH register and the LSB is
written to the EEADR register.
If the device contains less memory than the full address
reach of the address register pair, the Most Significant
bits of the registers are not implemented. For example,
if the device has 128 bytes of data EEPROM, the Most
Significant bit of EEADR is not implemented on access
to data EEPROM.
3.2
EECON1 and EECON2 Registers
EECON1 is the control register for memory accesses.
Control bit EEPGD determines if the access will be a
program or data memory access. When clear, as it is
when reset, any subsequent operations will operate on
the data memory. When set, any subsequent
operations will operate on the program memory.
Control bits, RD and WR, initiate read and write,
respectively. These bits cannot be cleared, only set in
software. They are cleared in hardware at completion
of the read or write operation. The inability to clear the
WR bit in software prevents the accidental, premature
termination of a write operation.
The WREN bit, when set, will allow a write or erase
operation. On power-up, the WREN bit is clear. The
WRERR bit is set when a write (or erase) operation is
interrupted by a MCLR, or a WDT Time-out Reset during normal operation. In these situations, following
Reset, the user can check the WRERR bit and rewrite
the location. The data and address will be unchanged
in the EEDATA and EEADR registers.
Interrupt flag bit, EEIF in the PIR2 register, is set when
the write is complete. It must be cleared in software.
EECON2 is not a physical register. Reading EECON2
will read all ‘0’s. The EECON2 register is used
exclusively in the EEPROM write sequence.

Reading Data EEPROM Memory
To read a data memory location, the user must write the
address to the EEADR register, clear the EEPGD control bit (EECON1<7>) and then set control bit RD
(EECON1<0>). The data is available in the very next
cycle in the EEDATA register; therefore, it can be read
in the next instruction (see Example 3-1). EEDATA will
hold this value until another read or until it is written to
by the user (during a write operation).
The steps to write to EEPROM data memory are:
1.
2.
3.
4.
The steps to reading the EEPROM data memory are:
1.
Write the address to EEADR. Make sure that the
address is not larger than the memory size of
the device.
Clear the EEPGD bit to point to EEPROM data
memory.
Set the RD bit to start the read operation.
Read the data from the EEDATA register.

10. At the completion of the write cycle, the WR bit
is cleared and the EEIF interrupt flag bit is set
(EEIF must be cleared by firmware). If step 1 is
not implemented, then firmware should check
for EEIF to be set, or WR to clear, to indicate the
end of the program cycle.

To write an EEPROM data location, the user must first
write the address to the EEADR register and the data to
the EEDATA register. Then, the user must follow a
specific write sequence to initiate the write for each byte.
The write will not initiate if the write sequence is not
exactly followed (write 55h to EECON2, write AAh to
EECON2, then set WR bit) for each byte. We strongly
recommend that interrupts be disabled during this
code segment (see Example 3-2).
After a write sequence has been initiated, clearing the
WREN bit will not affect this write cycle. The WR bit will
be inhibited from being set unless the WREN bit is set.
At the completion of the write cycle, the WR bit is
cleared in hardware and the EE Write Complete
Interrupt Flag bit (EEIF) is set. The user can either
enable this interrupt or poll this bit. EEIF must be
cleared by software.

Additionally, the WREN bit in EECON1 must be set to
enable write. This mechanism prevents accidental
writes to data EEPROM due to errant (unexpected)
code execution (i.e., lost programs). The user should
keep the WREN bit clear at all times except when
updating EEPROM. The WREN bit is not cleared

Reading Flash Program Memory
To read a program memory location, the user must
write two bytes of the address to the EEADR and
EEADRH registers, set the EEPGD control bit
(EECON1<7>) and then set control bit RD
(EECON1<0>). Once the read control bit is set, the
program memory Flash controller will use the second
instruction cycle to read the data. This causes the
second instruction immediately following the “BSF
EECON1,RD” instruction to be ignored. The data is
available in the very next cycle in the EEDATA and
EEDATH registers; therefore, it can be read as two
bytes in the following instructions. EEDATA and EEDATH registers will hold this value until another read or
until it is written to by the user (during a write
operation).

The minimum erase block is 32 words. Only through
the use of an external programmer, or through ICSP
control, can larger blocks of program memory be bulk
erased. Word erase in the Flash array is not supported.
When initiating an erase sequence from the microcontroller itself, a block of 32 words of program memory
is erased. The Most Significant 11 bits of the
EEADRH:EEADR point to the block being erased.
EEADR< 4:0> are ignored.
The EECON1 register commands the erase operation.
The EEPGD bit must be set to point to the Flash
program memory. The WREN bit must be set to enable
write operations. The FREE bit is set to select an erase
operation.
For protection, the write initiate sequence for EECON2
must be used.
After the “BSF EECON1,WR” instruction, the processor
requires two cycles to setup the erase operation. The
user must place two NOP instructions after the WR bit is
set. The processor will halt internal operations for the
typical 2 ms, only during the cycle in which the erase
takes place. This is not Sleep mode, as the clocks and
peripherals will continue to run. After the erase cycle,
the processor will resume operation with the third
instruction after the EECON1 write instruction.

Writing to Flash Program Memory
The user must follow the same specific sequence to
initiate the write for each word in the program block
by writing each program word in sequence (00, 01,
10, 11).
Flash program memory may only be written to if the
destination address is in a segment of memory that is
not write-protected, as defined in bits WRT1:WRT0 of
the device Configuration Word (Register 15-1). Flash
program memory must be written in four-word blocks.
A block consists of four words with sequential
addresses, with a lower boundary defined by an
address, where EEADR<1:0> = 00. At the same time,
all block writes to program memory are done as writeonly operations. The program memory must first be
erased. The write operation is edge-aligned and cannot
occur across boundaries.
There are 4 buffer register words and all four locations
MUST be written to with correct data.
After the “BSF EECON1,
WR” instruction, if
EEADR  xxxxxx11, then a short write will occur.
This short write only transfers the data to the buffer
register. The WR bit will be cleared in hardware after
1 cycle.
After the “BSF EECON1,
WR” instruction, if
EEADR = xxxxxx11, then a long write will occur. This
will simultaneously transfer the data from
EEDATH:EEDATA to the buffer registers and begin the
write of all four words. The processor will execute the
next instruction and then ignore the subsequent
instruction. The user should place NOP instructions into
the second words. The processor will then halt internal
operations for typically 2 msec in which the write takes
place. This is not Sleep mode, as the clocks and
peripherals will continue to run. After the write cycle,
the processor will resume operation with the 3rd
instruction after the EECON1 write instruction.
To write to the program memory, the data must first be
loaded into the buffer registers. There are four 14-bit
buffer registers and they are addressed by the low
2 bits of EEADR.
The following sequence of events illustrate how to
perform a write to program memory:
• Set the EEPGD and WREN bits in the EECON1
register
• Clear the FREE bit in EECON1
• Write address to EEADRH:EEADR
• Write data to EEDATH:EEDATA
• Write 55 to EECON2
• Write AA to EECON2
• Set WR bit in EECON1

After each long write, the 4 buffer registers will be reset

Protection Against Spurious Write
3.9
There are conditions when the device should not write
to the data EEPROM memory. To protect against
spurious EEPROM writes, various mechanisms have
been built-in. On power-up, WREN is cleared. Also, the
Power-up Timer (72 ms duration) prevents an
EEPROM write.
When the data EEPROM is code-protected, the microcontroller can read and write to the EEPROM normally.
However, all external access to the EEPROM is
disabled. External write access to the program memory
is also disabled.
When program memory is code-protected, the microcontroller can read and write to program memory
normally, as well as execute instructions. Writes by the
device may be selectively inhibited to regions of the
memory depending on the setting of bits WRT1:WRT0
of the Configuration Word (see Section 15.1 “Configuration Bits” for additional information). External
access to the memory is also disabled.
The write initiate sequence and the WREN bit together
help prevent an accidental write during brown-out,
power glitch or software malfunction.

External Clock Input
The ECIO Oscillator mode requires an external clock

oscillator start-up time required after a Power-on
Reset, or after an exit from Sleep mode.
In the ECIO Oscillator mode, the OSC2 pin becomes
an additional general purpose I/O pin. The I/O pin
becomes bit 6 of PORTA (RA6). Figure 4-3 shows the

Note:
When using resonators with frequencies
above 3.5 MHz, the use of HS mode,
rather than XT mode, is recommended.
HS mode may be used at any VDD for
which the controller is rated. If HS is
selected, it is possible that the gain of the

Therefore, a series resistor should be

RC Oscillator
4.5
For timing insensitive applications, the “RC” and
“RCIO” device options offer additional cost savings.
The RC oscillator frequency is a function of the supply
voltage, the resistor (REXT) and capacitor (CEXT) values and the operating temperature. In addition to this,
the oscillator frequency will vary from unit to unit due to
normal manufacturing variation. Furthermore, the difference in lead frame capacitance between package
types will also affect the oscillation frequency,
especially for low CEXT values. The user also needs to
take into account variation due to tolerance of external
R and C components used. Figure 4-4 shows how the
R/C combination is connected.
In the RC Oscillator mode, the oscillator frequency
divided by 4 is available on the OSC2 pin. This signal may
be used for test purposes or to synchronize other logic.

FIGURE 4-5:
Internal Oscillator Block
The PIC16F87/88 devices include an internal oscillator
block which generates two different clock signals;
either can be used as the system’s clock source. This
can eliminate the need for external oscillator circuits on
the OSC1 and/or OSC2 pins.
The main output (INTOSC) is an 8 MHz clock source
which can be used to directly drive the system clock. It
also drives the INTOSC postscaler which can provide a
range of six clock frequencies from 125 kHz to 4 MHz.
The other clock source is the internal RC oscillator
(INTRC) which provides a 31.25 kHz (32 s nominal
period) output. The INTRC oscillator is enabled by
selecting the INTRC as the system clock source or
when any of the following are enabled:
•
•
•
•
Power-up Timer
Watchdog Timer
Two-Speed Start-up
Fail-Safe Clock Monitor
These features are discussed in greater detail in
Section 15.0 “Special Features of the CPU”.
The clock source frequency (INTOSC direct, INTRC
direct or INTOSC postscaler) is selected by configuring
the IRCF bits of the OSCCON register (page 40).
Note:
Throughout this data sheet, when referring
specifically to a generic clock source, the
term “INTRC” may also be used to refer to
the clock modes using the internal oscillator
block. This is regardless of whether the
actual frequency used is INTOSC (8 MHz),
the INTOSC postscaler or INTRC
(31.25 kHz).

Using the internal oscillator as the clock source can
eliminate the need for up to two external oscillator pins,
after which it can be used for digital I/O. Two distinct
configurations are available:
• In INTIO1 mode, the OSC2 pin outputs FOSC/4,
while OSC1 functions as RA7 for digital input and
output.
• In INTIO2 mode, OSC1 functions as RA7 and
OSC2 functions as RA6, both for digital input and
output.
REGISTER 4-1:
OSCTUNE REGISTER
The internal oscillator’s output has been calibrated at the
factory but can be adjusted in the application. This is
done by writing to the OSCTUNE register (Register 4-1).
The tuning sensitivity is constant throughout the tuning
range. The OSCTUNE register has a tuning range of
±12.5%.
When the OSCTUNE register is modified, the INTOSC
and INTRC frequencies will begin shifting to the new frequency. The INTRC clock will reach the new frequency
within 8 clock cycles (approximately 8 * 32 s = 256 s);
the INTOSC clock will stabilize within 1 ms. Code execution continues during this shift. There is no indication that
the shift has occurred. Operation of features that depend
on the 31.25 kHz INTRC clock source frequency, such
as the WDT, Fail-Safe Clock Monitor and peripherals,
will also be affected by the change in frequency.

Clock Sources and Oscillator
Switching
The PIC16F87/88 devices include a feature that allows
the system clock source to be switched from the main
oscillator to an alternate low-frequency clock source.
PIC16F87/88 devices offer three alternate clock
sources. When enabled, these give additional options
for switching to the various power-managed operating
modes.
FOSC2:FOSC0 configuration bits in Configuration
Word 1 register. When the bits are set in any other
manner, the system clock source is provided by the
Timer1 oscillator (SCS1:SCS0 = 01) or from the
internal oscillator block (SCS1:SCS0 = 10). After a
Reset, SCS<1:0> are always set to ‘00’.
Note:
Essentially, there are three clock sources for these
devices:
• Primary oscillators
• Secondary oscillators
• Internal oscillator block (INTRC)
The primary oscillators include the External Crystal
and Resonator modes, the External RC modes, the
External Clock mode and the internal oscillator block.
The particular mode is defined on POR by the contents
of Configuration Word 1. The details of these modes
are covered earlier in this chapter.
The secondary oscillators are those external sources
not connected to the OSC1 or OSC2 pins. These
sources may continue to operate even after the
controller is placed in a power-managed mode.
PIC16F87/88 devices offer the Timer1 oscillator as a
secondary oscillator. This oscillator continues to run
when a SLEEP instruction is executed and is often the
time base for functions such as a real-time clock.
Most often, a 32.768 kHz watch crystal is connected
between the RB6/T1OSO and RB7/T1OSI pins. Like
the LP mode oscillator circuit, loading capacitors are
also connected from each pin to ground. The Timer1
oscillator is discussed in greater detail in Section 7.6
“Timer1 Oscillator”.
In addition to being a primary clock source, the internal
oscillator block is available as a power-managed
mode clock source. The 31.25 kHz INTRC source is
also used as the clock source for several special
features, such as the WDT, Fail-Safe Clock Monitor,
Power-up Timer and Two-Speed Start-up.
The clock sources for the PIC16F87/88 devices are
shown in Figure 4-6. See Section 7.0 “Timer1 Module” for further details of the Timer1 oscillator. See
Section 15.1 “Configuration Bits” for Configuration
register details.
4.6.1
OSCCON REGISTER
The OSCCON register (Register 4-2) controls several
aspects of the system clock’s operation, both in full
power operation and in power-managed modes.
The System Clock Select bits, SCS1:SCS0, select the
clock source that is used when the device is operating
in power-managed modes. When the bits are
cleared (SCS<1:0> = 00), the system clock source
comes from the main oscillator that is selected by the
 2002-2013 Microchip Technology Inc.
The instruction to immediately follow the
modification of SCS<1:0> will have an
instruction time (TCY) based on the previous clock source. This should be taken
into consideration when developing time
dependant code.
The Internal Oscillator Select bits, IRCF2:IRCF0, select
the frequency output of the internal oscillator block that
is used to drive the system clock. The choices are the
INTRC source (31.25 kHz), the INTOSC source
(8 MHz) or one of the six frequencies derived from the
INTOSC postscaler (125 kHz to 4 MHz). Changing the
configuration of these bits has an immediate change on
the multiplexor’s frequency output.
The OSTS and IOFS bits indicate the status of the
primary oscillator and INTOSC source; these bits are
set when their respective oscillators are stable. In
particular, OSTS indicates that the Oscillator Start-up
Timer has timed out.
4.6.2
CLOCK SWITCHING
Clock switching will occur for the following reasons:
• The FCMEN (CONFIG2<0>) bit is set, the device
is running from the primary oscillator and the
primary oscillator fails. The clock source will be
the internal RC oscillator.
• The FCMEN bit is set, the device is running from
the T1OSC and T1OSC fails. The clock source
will be the internal RC oscillator.
• Following a wake-up due to a Reset or a POR,
when the device is configured for Two-Speed
Start-up mode, switching will occur between the
INTRC and the system clock defined by the
FOSC<2:0> bits.
• A wake-up from Sleep occurs due to an interrupt or
WDT wake-up and Two-Speed Start-up is enabled.
If the primary clock is XT, HS or LP, the clock will
switch between the INTRC and the primary system
clock after 1024 clocks (OST) and 8 clocks of the
primary oscillator. This is conditional upon the SCS
bits being set equal to ‘00’.
• SCS bits are modified from their original value.
• IRCF bits are modified from their original value.
Note:
Because the SCS bits are cleared on any
Reset, no clock switching will occur on a
Reset unless the Two-Speed Start-up is
enabled and the primary clock is XT, HS or
LP. The device will wait for the primary
clock to become stable before execution
begins (Two-Speed Start-up disabled).
DS30487D-page 39
PIC16F87/88
4.6.3
CLOCK TRANSITION AND WDT
When clock switching is performed, the Watchdog
Timer is disabled because the Watchdog ripple counter
is used as the Oscillator Start-up Timer.
Note:
Once the clock transition is complete (i.e., new oscillator selection switch has occurred), the Watchdog counter is re-enabled with the counter reset. This allows the
user to synchronize the Watchdog Timer to the start of
execution at the new clock frequency.
The OST is only used when switching to
XT, HS and LP Oscillator modes.

CLOCK TRANSITION SEQUENCE
The IRCF bits can be modified at any time regardless of
which clock source is currently being used as the
system clock. The internal oscillator allows users to
change the frequency during run time. This is achieved
by modifying the IRCF bits in the OSCCON register.
The sequence of events that occur after the IRCF bits
are modified is dependent upon the initial value of the
IRCF bits before they are modified. If the INTRC
(31.25 kHz, IRCF<2:0> = 000) is running and the IRCF
bits are modified to any other value than ‘000’, a 4 ms
(approx.) clock switch delay is turned on. Code execution continues at a higher than expected frequency
while the new frequency stabilizes. Time sensitive code
should wait for the IOFS bit in the OSCCON register to
become set before continuing. This bit can be monitored to ensure that the frequency is stable before using
the system clock in time critical applications.
Following are three different sequences for switching
the internal RC oscillator frequency.
If the IRCF bits are modified while the internal oscillator
is running at any other frequency than INTRC
(31.25 kHz, IRCF<2:0>  000), there is no need for a
4 ms (approx.) clock switch delay. The new INTOSC
frequency will be stable immediately after the eight falling edges. The IOFS bit will remain set after clock
switching occurs.

3. The clock switching circuitry then waits for eight
falling edges of requested clock, after which it

4. Oscillator switchover is complete.
Note:
Caution must be taken when modifying the
IRCF bits using BCF or BSF instructions. It
is possible to modify the IRCF bits to a
frequency that may be out of the VDD specification range; for example, VDD = 2.0V
and IRCF = 111 (8 MHz).

4.7.1
If the system clock does not come from the INTRC
(31.25 kHz) when the SCS bits are changed and the
IRCF bits in the OSCCON register are configured for a
frequency other than INTRC, the frequency may not be
stable immediately. The IOFS bit (OSCCON<2>) will
be set when the INTOSC or postscaler frequency is
stable, after 4 ms (approx.).
RC_RUN MODE
When SCS bits are configured to run from the INTRC,
a clock transition is generated if the system clock is
not already using the INTRC. The event will clear the
OSTS bit, switch the system clock from the primary
system clock (if SCS<1:0> = 00) determined by the
value contained in the configuration bits, or from the
T1OSC (if SCS<1:0> = 01) to the INTRC clock option
and shut down the primary system clock to conserve
power. Clock switching will not occur if the primary
system clock is already configured as INTRC.
FIGURE 4-7:
After a clock switch has been executed, the OSTS bit
is cleared, indicating a low-power mode and the
device does not run from the primary system clock.
The internal Q clocks are held in the Q1 state until
eight falling edge clocks are counted on the INTRC
oscillator. After the eight clock periods have transpired,
the clock input to the Q clocks is released and operation resumes (see Figure 4-7).

SEC_RUN MODE
The core and peripherals can be configured to be
clocked by T1OSC using a 32.768 kHz crystal. The
crystal must be connected to the T1OSO and T1OSI
pins. This is the same configuration as the low-power
timer circuit (see Section 7.6 “Timer1 Oscillator”).
When SCS bits are configured to run from T1OSC, a
clock transition is generated. It will clear the OSTS bit,
switch the system clock from either the primary system
clock or INTRC, depending on the value of SCS<1:0>
and FOSC<2:0>, to the external low-power Timer1
oscillator input (T1OSC) and shut down the primary
system clock to conserve power.
Note 1: The T1OSCEN bit must be enabled and it
is the user’s responsibility to ensure
T1OSC is stable before clock switching to
the T1OSC input clock can occur.

SEC_RUN/RC_RUN TO PRIMARY
CLOCK SOURCE
When switching from a SEC_RUN or RC_RUN mode
back to the primary system clock, following a change
of SCS<1:0> to ‘00’, the sequence of events that takes
place will depend upon the value of the FOSC bits in
the Configuration register. If the primary clock source
is configured as a crystal (HS, XT or LP), then the transition will take place after 1024 clock cycles. This is
necessary because the crystal oscillator has been
powered down until the time of the transition. In order
to provide the system with a reliable clock when the
changeover has occurred, the clock will not be
released to the changeover circuit until the 1024 count
has expired.
During the oscillator start-up time, the system clock
comes from the current system clock. Instruction
execution and/or peripheral operation continues using
the currently selected oscillator as the CPU clock
source, until the necessary clock count has expired, to
ensure that the primary system clock is stable.
To know when the OST has expired, the OSTS bit
should be monitored. OSTS = 1 indicates that the
Oscillator Start-up Timer has timed out and the system
clock comes from the primary clock source.
Following the oscillator start-up time, the internal Q
clocks are held in the Q1 state until eight falling edge
clocks are counted from the primary system clock. The
clock input to the Q clocks is then released and operation resumes with the primary system clock determined
by the FOSC bits (see Figure 4-10).
4.7.3.1
Returning to Primary Clock Source
Sequence
Changing back to the primary oscillator from
SEC_RUN or RC_RUN can be accomplished by either
changing SCS<1:0> to ‘00’, or clearing the T1OSCEN
bit in the T1CON register (if T1OSC was the secondary
clock).
The sequence of events that follows is the same for
both modes:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
If the primary system clock is configured as EC,
RC or INTRC, then the OST time-out is skipped.
Skip to step 3.
If the primary system clock is configured as an
external oscillator (HS, XT, LP), then the OST
will be active, waiting for 1024 clocks of the
primary system clock.
On the following Q1, the device holds the
system clock in Q1.
The device stays in Q1 while eight falling edges
of the primary system clock are counted.
Once the eight counts transpire, the device
begins to run from the primary oscillator.
If the secondary clock was INTRC and the
primary is not INTRC, the INTRC will be shut
down to save current providing that the INTRC
is not being used for any other function, such as
WDT or Fail-Safe Clock monitoring.
If the secondary clock was T1OSC, the T1OSC
will continue to run if T1OSCEN is still set;
otherwise, the T1 oscillator will be shut down.
When in SEC_RUN mode, the act of clearing the
T1OSCEN bit in the T1CON register will cause
SCS<0> to be cleared, which causes the SCS<1:0>
bits to revert to ‘00’ or ‘10’ depending on what SCS<1>
is. Although the T1OSCEN bit was cleared, T1OSC will
be enabled and instruction execution will continue until
the OST time-out for the main system clock is complete. At that time, the system clock will switch from the
T1OSC to the primary clock or the INTRC. Following
this, the T1 oscillator will be shut down.
Note:
If the primary system clock is either RC or
EC, an internal delay timer (5-10 s) will
suspend operation after exiting Secondary
Clock mode to allow the CPU to become
ready for code execution.

Returning to Primary Oscillator with
a Reset
A Reset will clear SCS<1:0> back to ‘00’. The
sequence for starting the primary oscillator following a
Reset is the same for all forms of Reset, including
POR. There is no transition sequence from the
alternate system clock to the primary system clock on
a Reset condition. Instead, the device will reset the
state of the OSCCON register and default to the
primary system clock. The sequence of events that
takes place after this will depend upon the value of the
FOSC bits in the Configuration register. If the external
oscillator is configured as a crystal (HS, XT or LP), the
CPU will be held in the Q1 state until 1024 clock cycles
have transpired on the primary clock. This is
necessary because the crystal oscillator has been
powered down until the time of the transition.
no oscillator start-up time required because the
primary clock is already stable; however, there is a
delay between the wake-up event and the following
Q2. An internal delay timer of 5-10 s will suspend
operation after the Reset to allow the CPU to become
ready for code execution. The CPU and peripheral
clock will be held in the first Q1.
The sequence of events is as follows:
1.
2.
3.
During the oscillator start-up time, instruction
execution and/or peripheral operation is suspended.
Note:
If Two-Speed Clock Start-up mode is
enabled, the INTRC will act as the system
clock until the OST timer has timed out.
If the primary system clock is either RC, EC or INTRC,
the CPU will begin operating on the first Q1 cycle
following the wake-up event. This means that there is

sources (WDT, BOR, MCLR, etc.).

If the primary system clock is configured as an

will be active waiting for 1024 clocks of the
primary system clock. While waiting for the OST,
the device will be held in Reset. The OST and

After both the CPU start-up and OST timers
have timed out, the device will wait for one additional clock cycle and instruction execution will
begin.

Any interrupt, such as WDT or INT0, will cause the part

After the CPU start-up timer has timed out, the
device will exit Sleep and begin instruction
execution with the selected oscillator mode.
Note:
If a user changes SCS<1:0> just before
entering Sleep mode, the system clock
used when exiting Sleep mode could be
different than the system clock used when
entering Sleep mode.
As an example, if SCS<1:0> = 01 and
T1OSC is the system clock and the
following instructions are executed:
BCF
SLEEP
OSCCON, SCS0
then a clock change event is executed. If
the primary oscillator is XT, LP or HS, the
core will continue to run off T1OSC and
execute the SLEEP command.
When Sleep is exited, the part will resume
operation with the primary oscillator after
the OST has expired.

I/O PORTS
Some pins for these I/O ports are multiplexed with an
alternate function for the peripheral features on the
device. In general, when a peripheral is enabled, that
pin may not be used as a general purpose I/O pin.
Additional information on I/O ports may be found in the
“PIC® Mid-Range MCU Family Reference Manual”
(DS33023).
5.1
PORTA and the TRISA Register
PORTA is an 8-bit wide, bidirectional port. The corresponding data direction register is TRISA. Setting a
TRISA bit (= 1) will make the corresponding PORTA
pin an input (i.e., put the corresponding output driver in
a high-impedance mode). Clearing a TRISA bit (= 0)
will make the corresponding PORTA pin an output (i.e.,
put the contents of the output latch on the selected pin).
Note:
On a Power-on Reset, the pins
PORTA<4:0> are configured as analog
inputs and read as ‘0’.
Reading the PORTA register, reads the status of the
pins, whereas writing to it, will write to the port latch. All
write operations are read-modify-write operations.
Therefore, a write to a port implies that the port pins are
read, this value is modified and then written to the port
data latch.
TABLE 5-1:
Pin RA4 is multiplexed with the Timer0 module clock
input. On PIC16F88 devices, it is also multiplexed with
an analog input to become the RA4/AN4/T0CKI/
C2OUT pin. The RA4/AN4/T0CKI/C2OUT pin is a
Schmitt Trigger input and full CMOS output driver.
Pin RA5 is multiplexed with the Master Clear module
input. The RA5/MCLR/VPP pin is a Schmitt Trigger
input.
Pin RA6 is multiplexed with the oscillator module input
and external oscillator output. Pin RA7 is multiplexed
with the oscillator module input and external oscillator
input. Pin RA6/OSC2/CLKO and pin RA7/OSC1/CLKI

Pins RA<1:0> are multiplexed with analog inputs. Pins
RA<3:2> are multiplexed with analog inputs and comparator outputs. On PIC16F88 devices, pins RA<3:2>
are also multiplexed with the VREF inputs. Pins RA<3:0>
have TTL inputs and full CMOS output drivers.

5.2
PORTB and the TRISB Register
PORTB is an 8-bit wide, bidirectional port. The corresponding data direction register is TRISB. Setting a
TRISB bit (= 1) will make the corresponding PORTB
pin an input (i.e., put the corresponding output driver in
a high-impedance mode). Clearing a TRISB bit (= 0)
will make the corresponding PORTB pin an output (i.e.,
put the contents of the output latch on the selected pin).
Each of the PORTB pins has a weak internal pull-up. A
single control bit can turn on all the pull-ups. This is
performed by clearing bit RBPU (OPTION_REG<7>).
The weak pull-up is automatically turned off when the
port pin is configured as an output. The pull-ups are
disabled on a Power-on Reset.
Four of PORTB’s pins, RB7:RB4, have an interrupt-onchange feature. Only pins configured as inputs can
cause this interrupt to occur (i.e., any RB7:RB4 pin
configured as an output is excluded from the interrupton-change comparison). The input pins (of RB7:RB4)
are compared with the old value latched on the last
read of PORTB. The “mismatch” outputs of RB7:RB4
are OR’ed together to generate the RB Port Change
Interrupt with Flag bit RBIF (INTCON<0>).
A mismatch condition will continue to set flag bit RBIF.
Reading PORTB will end the mismatch condition and
allow flag bit RBIF to be cleared.
The interrupt-on-change feature is recommended for
wake-up on key depression operation and operations
where PORTB is only used for the interrupt-on-change
feature. Polling of PORTB is not recommended while
using the interrupt-on-change feature.
RB0/INT is an external interrupt input pin and is
configured using the INTEDG bit (OPTION_REG<6>).
PORTB is multiplexed with several peripheral functions
(see Table 5-3). PORTB pins have Schmitt Trigger
input buffers.
When enabling peripheral functions, care should be
taken in defining TRIS bits for each PORTB pin. Some
peripherals override the TRIS bit to make a pin an
output, while other peripherals override the TRIS bit to
make a pin an input. Since the TRIS bit override is in
effect while the peripheral is enabled, read-modifywrite instructions (BSF, BCF, XORWF) with TRISB as
the destination should be avoided. The user should
refer to the corresponding peripheral section for the
correct TRIS bit settings.
This interrupt can wake the device from Sleep. The
user, in the Interrupt Service Routine, can clear the
interrupt in the following manner:
a)
b)
Any read or write of PORTB. This will end the
mismatch condition.
Clear flag bit RBIF.

TIMER0 MODULE
Counter mode is selected by setting bit T0CS
(OPTION_REG<5>). In Counter mode, Timer0 will increment, either on every rising or falling edge of pin RA4/
T0CKI/C2OUT. The incrementing edge is determined by
the Timer0 Source Edge Select bit, T0SE
(OPTION_REG<4>). Clearing bit T0SE selects the rising
edge. Restrictions on the external clock input are
discussed in detail in Section 6.3 “Using Timer0 with
an External Clock”.
The Timer0 module timer/counter has the following

The prescaler is mutually, exclusively shared between
the Timer0 module and the Watchdog Timer. The
prescaler is not readable or writable. Section 6.4
“Prescaler” details the operation of the prescaler.
Additional information on the Timer0 module is
available in the “PIC® Mid-Range MCU Family Reference Manual” (DS33023).
6.2
Figure 6-1 is a block diagram of the Timer0 module and
the prescaler shared with the WDT.
6.1
The TMR0 interrupt is generated when the TMR0 register overflows from FFh to 00h. This overflow sets bit
TMR0IF (INTCON<2>). The interrupt can be masked
by clearing bit TMR0IE (INTCON<5>). Bit TMR0IF
must be cleared in software by the Timer0 module
Interrupt Service Routine before re-enabling this interrupt. The TMR0 interrupt cannot awaken the processor
from Sleep, since the timer is shut off during Sleep.
Timer0 Operation
Timer0 operation is controlled through the
OPTION_REG register (see Register 2-2). Timer mode
is selected by clearing bit T0CS (OPTION_REG<5>).
In Timer mode, the Timer0 module will increment every
instruction cycle (without prescaler). If the TMR0 register is written, the increment is inhibited for the following
two instruction cycles. The user can work around this
by writing an adjusted value to the TMR0 register.

6.3
Using Timer0 with an External
Clock
Note:
When no prescaler is used, the external clock input is
the same as the prescaler output. The synchronization
of T0CKI, with the internal phase clocks, is accomplished by sampling the prescaler output on the Q2 and
Q4 cycles of the internal phase clocks. Therefore, it is
necessary for T0CKI to be high for at least 2 TOSC (and
a small RC delay of 20 ns) and low for at least 2 TOSC
(and a small RC delay of 20 ns). Refer to the electrical
specification of the desired device.
6.4
Prescaler
There is only one prescaler available, which is mutually
exclusively shared between the Timer0 module and the
Watchdog Timer. A prescaler assignment for the
Timer0 module means that the prescaler cannot be
used by the Watchdog Timer and vice versa. This
prescaler is not readable or writable (see Figure 6-1).
REGISTER 6-1:
Although the prescaler can be assigned to
either the WDT or Timer0, but not both, a
new divide counter is implemented in the
WDT circuit to give multiple WDT time-out
selections. This allows TMR0 and WDT to
each have their own scaler. Refer to
Section 15.12 “Watchdog Timer (WDT)”
for further details.
The PSA and PS2:PS0 bits (OPTION_REG<3:0>)
determine the prescaler assignment and prescale ratio.
When assigned to the Timer0 module, all instructions
writing to the TMR0 register (e.g., CLRF 1, MOVWF 1,
BSF 1, x....etc.) will clear the prescaler. When assigned
to WDT, a CLRWDT instruction will clear the prescaler
along with the Watchdog Timer. The prescaler is not
readable or writable.
Note:
Writing to TMR0, when the prescaler is
assigned to Timer0, will clear the
prescaler count but will not change the
prescaler assignment.

TIMER1 MODULE
The Timer1 module is a 16-bit timer/counter consisting
of two 8-bit registers (TMR1H and TMR1L) which are
readable and writable. The TMR1 register pair
(TMR1H:TMR1L) increments from 0000h to FFFFh
and rolls over to 0000h. The TMR1 interrupt, if enabled,
is generated on overflow which is latched in interrupt
flag bit, TMR1IF (PIR1<0>). This interrupt can be
enabled/disabled by setting/clearing TMR1 interrupt
enable bit, TMR1IE (PIE1<0>).
The Timer1 oscillator can be used as a secondary clock
source in low-power modes. When the T1RUN bit is set
along with SCS<1:0> = 01, the Timer1 oscillator is providing the system clock. If the Fail-Safe Clock Monitor is
enabled and the Timer1 oscillator fails while providing
the system clock, polling the T1RUN bit will indicate
whether the clock is being provided by the Timer1
oscillator or another source.
Timer1 can also be used to provide Real-Time Clock
(RTC) functionality to applications with only a minimal
addition of external components and code overhead.
7.1
Timer1 Operation
Timer1 can operate in one of three modes:
• as a Timer
• as a Synchronous Counter
• as an Asynchronous Counter
The operating mode is determined by the clock select
bit, TMR1CS (T1CON<1>).
In Timer mode, Timer1 increments every instruction
cycle. In Counter mode, it increments on every rising
edge of the external clock input.
Timer1 can be enabled/disabled by setting/clearing
control bit, TMR1ON (T1CON<0>).
Timer1 also has an internal “Reset input”. This Reset
can be generated by the CCP1 module as the special
event trigger (see Section 9.1 “Capture Mode”).
Register 7-1 shows the Timer1 Control register.
When the Timer1 oscillator is enabled (T1OSCEN is
set), the RB6/PGC/T1OSO/T1CKI and RB7/PGD/
T1OSI pins become inputs. That is, the TRISB<7:6>
value is ignored and these pins read as ‘0’.
Additional information on timer modules is available in
the “PIC® Mid-Range MCU Family Reference Manual”
(DS33023).

7.2
Timer1 Operation in Timer Mode
7.4
Timer mode is selected by clearing the TMR1CS
(T1CON<1>) bit. In this mode, the input clock to the
timer is FOSC/4. The synchronize control bit, T1SYNC
(T1CON<2>), has no effect since the internal clock is
always in sync.
7.3
Counter mode is selected by setting bit TMR1CS. In
this mode, the timer increments on every rising edge of
clock input on pin RB7/PGD/T1OSI when bit
T1OSCEN is set, or on pin RB6/PGC/T1OSO/T1CKI
when bit T1OSCEN is cleared.
Timer1 Counter Operation
If T1SYNC is cleared, then the external clock input is
synchronized with internal phase clocks. The synchronization is done after the prescaler stage. The
prescaler stage is an asynchronous ripple counter.
Timer1 may operate in Asynchronous or Synchronous
mode, depending on the setting of the TMR1CS bit.
When Timer1 is being incremented via an external
source, increments occur on a rising edge. After Timer1
is enabled in Counter mode, the module must first have
a falling edge before the counter begins to increment.
FIGURE 7-1:
Timer1 Operation in Synchronized
Counter Mode
In this configuration, during Sleep mode, Timer1 will not
increment even if the external clock is present since the
synchronization circuit is shut off. The prescaler,
however, will continue to increment.

7.5
Timer1 Operation in
Asynchronous Counter Mode
If control bit T1SYNC (T1CON<2>) is set, the external
clock input is not synchronized. The timer continues to
increment asynchronous to the internal phase clocks.
The timer will continue to run during Sleep and can
generate an interrupt-on-overflow that will wake-up the
processor. However, special precautions in software
are needed to read/write the timer (see Section 7.5.1
“Reading and Writing Timer1 in Asynchronous
Counter Mode”).
In Asynchronous Counter mode, Timer1 cannot be
used as a time base for capture or compare operations.
7.5.1
READING AND WRITING TIMER1 IN
ASYNCHRONOUS COUNTER
MODE
Reading TMR1H or TMR1L while the timer is running
from an external asynchronous clock will ensure a valid
read (taken care of in hardware). However, the user
should keep in mind that reading the 16-bit timer in two
8-bit values itself, poses certain problems, since the
timer may overflow between the reads.
For writes, it is recommended that the user simply stop
the timer and write the desired values. A write contention may occur by writing to the timer registers while the

TABLE 7-1:
Timer1 Oscillator
A crystal oscillator circuit is built between pins T1OSI
(input) and T1OSO (amplifier output). It is enabled by
setting control bit T1OSCEN (T1CON<3>). The oscillator is a low-power oscillator, rated up to 32.768 kHz. It
will continue to run during all power-managed modes.
It is primarily intended for a 32 kHz crystal. The circuit
for a typical LP oscillator is shown in Figure 7-3.
Table 7-1 shows the capacitor selection for the Timer1
oscillator.

Note 1: Microchip suggests this value as a starting
point in validating the oscillator circuit.
2: Higher capacitance increases the stability
of the oscillator but also increases the
start-up time.
The user must provide a software time delay to ensure
proper oscillator start-up.
Note:
3: Since each resonator/crystal has its own
characteristics, the user should consult
the resonator/crystal manufacturer for
appropriate
values
of
external
components.
The Timer1 oscillator shares the T1OSI
and T1OSO pins with the PGD and PGC
pins used for programming and
debugging.
When using the Timer1 oscillator, In-Circuit
Serial Programming™ (ICSP™) may not
function correctly (high voltage or low
voltage), or the In-Circuit Debugger (ICD)
may not communicate with the controller.
As a result of using either ICSP or ICD, the
Timer1 crystal may be damaged.
If ICSP or ICD operations are required, the
crystal should be disconnected from the
circuit (disconnect either lead) or installed
after programming. The oscillator loading
capacitors may remain in-circuit during
ICSP or ICD operation.

Timer1 Oscillator Layout
Considerations
The Timer1 oscillator circuit draws very little power
during operation. Due to the low-power nature of the
oscillator, it may also be sensitive to rapidly changing
signals in close proximity.
The oscillator circuit, shown in Figure 7-3, should be
located as close as possible to the microcontroller.
There should be no circuits passing within the oscillator
circuit boundaries other than VSS or VDD.
If a high-speed circuit must be located near the oscillator, a grounded guard ring around the oscillator circuit,
as shown in Figure 7-4, may be helpful when used on
a single-sided PCB or in addition to a ground plane.

Resetting Timer1 Using a CCP
Trigger Output
If the CCP1 module is configured in Compare mode to
generate
a
“special
event
trigger”
signal
(CCP1M3:CCP1M0 = 1011), the signal will reset
Timer1 and start an A/D conversion (if the A/D module
is enabled).
Note:
The special event triggers from the CCP1
module will not set interrupt flag bit,
TMR1IF (PIR1<0>).
Timer1 must be configured for either Timer or Synchronized Counter mode to take advantage of this feature.
If Timer1 is running in Asynchronous Counter mode,
this Reset operation may not work.
In the event that a write to Timer1 coincides with a
special event trigger from CCP1, the write will take
precedence.
In this mode of operation, the CCPR1H:CCPR1L
register pair effectively becomes the period register for
Timer1.
7.9
Resetting Timer1 Register Pair
(TMR1H, TMR1L)
TMR1H and TMR1L registers are not reset to 00h on a
POR, or any other Reset, except by the CCP1 special
event triggers.
T1CON register is reset to 00h on a Power-on Reset or
a Brown-out Reset, which shuts off the timer and
leaves a 1:1 prescale. In all other Resets, the register
is unaffected.
7.10
7.11
Using Timer1 as a Real-Time
Clock
Adding an external LP oscillator to Timer1 (such as the
one described in Section 7.6 “Timer1 Oscillator”)
gives users the option to include RTC functionality to
their applications. This is accomplished with an inexpensive watch crystal to provide an accurate time base
and several lines of application code to calculate the
time. When operating in Sleep mode and using a
battery or supercapacitor as a power source, it can
completely eliminate the need for a separate RTC
device and battery backup.
The application code routine, RTCisr, shown in
Example 7-3, demonstrates a simple method to
increment a counter at one-second intervals using an
Interrupt Service Routine. Incrementing the TMR1
register pair to overflow triggers the interrupt and calls
the routine, which increments the seconds counter by
one; additional counters for minutes and hours are
incremented as the previous counter overflows.
Since the register pair is 16 bits wide, counting up to
overflow the register directly from a 32.768 kHz clock
would take 2 seconds. To force the overflow at the
required one-second intervals, it is necessary to preload it; the simplest method is to set the MSb of TMR1H
with a BSF instruction. Note that the TMR1L register is
never preloaded or altered; doing so may introduce
cumulative error over many cycles.
For this method to be accurate, Timer1 must operate in
Asynchronous mode and the Timer1 overflow interrupt
must be enabled (PIE1<0> = 1), as shown in the
routine, RTCinit. The Timer1 oscillator must also be
enabled and running at all times.
Timer1 Prescaler
The prescaler counter is cleared on writes to the
TMR1H or TMR1L registers.

TIMER2 MODULE
Timer2 is an 8-bit timer with a prescaler and a postscaler. It can be used as the PWM time base for the
PWM mode of the CCP1 module. The TMR2 register is
readable and writable and is cleared on any device
Reset.
The input clock (FOSC/4) has a prescale option of 1:1,
1:4
or
1:16,
selected
by
control
bits
T2CKPS1:T2CKPS0 (T2CON<1:0>).
The Timer2 module has an 8-bit period register, PR2.
Timer2 increments from 00h until it matches PR2 and
then resets to 00h on the next increment cycle. PR2 is
a readable and writable register. The PR2 register is
initialized to FFh upon Reset.
The match output of TMR2 goes through a 4-bit postscaler (which gives a 1:1 to 1:16 scaling inclusive) to
generate a TMR2 interrupt (latched in flag bit TMR2IF
(PIR1<1>)).
8.1
Timer2 Prescaler and Postscaler
The prescaler and postscaler counters are cleared
when any of the following occurs:
• A write to the TMR2 register
• A write to the T2CON register
• Any device Reset (Power-on Reset, MCLR, WDT
Reset or Brown-out Reset)
TMR2 is not cleared when T2CON is written.
8.2
Output of TMR2
The output of TMR2 (before the postscaler) is fed to the
Synchronous Serial Port module (SSP) which optionally
uses it to generate a shift clock.

CAPTURE/COMPARE/PWM
(CCP) MODULE
The CCP module’s input/output pin (CCP1) can be
configured as RB0 or RB3. This selection is set in bit 12
(CCPMX) of the Configuration Word.
The Capture/Compare/PWM (CCP) module contains a
16-bit register that can operate as a:
• 16-bit Capture register
• 16-bit Compare register
• PWM Master/Slave Duty Cycle register.
Table 9-1 shows the timer resources of the CCP
module modes.
Additional information on the CCP module is available
in the “PIC® Mid-Range MCU Family Reference Manual” (DS33023) and in Application Note AN594, “Using
the CCP Module(s)” (DS00594).
TABLE 9-1:
Capture/Compare/PWM Register 1 (CCPR1) is comprised of two 8-bit registers: CCPR1L (low byte) and
CCPR1H (high byte). The CCP1CON register controls

Capture Mode
In Capture mode, CCPR1H:CCPR1L captures the

on the CCP1 pin. An event is defined as:
•
•
•
•
Every falling edge
Every rising edge
Every 4th rising edge
Every 16th rising edge
9.1.1
CCP PIN CONFIGURATION
In Capture mode, the CCP1 pin should be configured
as an input by setting the TRISB<x> bit.
Note 1: If the CCP1 pin is configured as an
output, a write to the port can cause a
capture condition.
2: The TRISB bit (0 or 3) is dependent upon
the setting of configuration bit 12
(CCPMX).

Timer1 must be running in Timer mode or Synchronized Counter mode for the CCP module to use the

9.1.3
An event is selected by control bits CCP1M3:CCP1M0
(CCP1CON<3:0>). When a capture is made, the interrupt request flag bit, CCP1IF (PIR1<2>), is set. It must
be cleared in software. If another capture occurs before
the value in register CCPR1 is read, the old captured
value is overwritten by the new captured value.
CCPR1L
TIMER1 MODE SELECTION
SOFTWARE INTERRUPT
When the Capture mode is changed, a false capture
interrupt may be generated. The user should keep bit
CCP1IE (PIE1<2>) clear to avoid false interrupts and
should clear the flag bit, CCP1IF, following any such
change in operating mode.
9.1.4
CCP PRESCALER
There are four prescaler settings, specified by bits
CCP1M3:CCP1M0. Whenever the CCP module is
turned off, or the CCP module is not in Capture mode,
the prescaler counter is cleared. This means that any
Reset will clear the prescaler counter.
Switching from one capture prescaler to another may
generate an interrupt. Also, the prescaler counter will
not be cleared, therefore, the first capture may be from
a non-zero prescaler. Example 9-1 shows the recommended method for switching between capture
prescalers. This example also clears the prescaler
counter and will not generate the “false” interrupt.

Note 1: Clearing the CCP1CON register will force
the CCP1 compare output latch to the

• Driven high
• Driven low
• Remains unchanged
2: The TRISB bit (0 or 3) is dependent upon
the setting of configuration bit 12

The action on the pin is based on the value of control
bits CCP1M3:CCP1M0 (CCP1CON<3:0>). At the

the CCP1 pin is multiplexed with the PORTB data latch,
the TRISB<x> bit must be cleared to make the CCP1
pin an output.
Note:
Clearing the CCP1CON register will force
the CCP1 PWM output latch to the default
low level. This is not the PORTB I/O data
latch.
Figure 9-3 shows a simplified block diagram of the
CCP module in PWM mode.
For a step-by-step procedure on how to set up the CCP
module for PWM operation, see Section 9.3.3 “Setup
for PWM Operation”.
FIGURE 9-3:
SIMPLIFIED PWM BLOCK
DIAGRAM
The PWM period is specified by writing to the PR2
register. The PWM period can be calculated using the
following formula.
EQUATION 9-1:
PWM Period = [(PR2) + 1] • 4 • TOSC •
(TMR2 Prescale Value)
PWM frequency is defined as 1/[PWM period].
When TMR2 is equal to PR2, the following three events
occur on the next increment cycle:
• TMR2 is cleared
• The CCP1 pin is set (exception: if PWM duty
cycle = 0%, the CCP1 pin will not be set)
• The PWM duty cycle is latched from CCPR1L into
CCPR1H

PWM DUTY CYCLE
The PWM duty cycle is specified by writing to the
CCPR1L register and to the CCP1CON<5:4> bits. Up
to 10-bit resolution is available. The CCPR1L contains
the eight MSbs and the CCP1CON<5:4> bits contain
the two LSbs. This 10-bit value is represented by
CCPR1L:CCP1CON<5:4>. The following equation is
used to calculate the PWM duty cycle in time.
EQUATION 9-2:
8-bit timer is concatenated with 2-bit internal Q
clock, or 2 bits of the prescaler, to create 10-bit
time base.
A PWM output (Figure 9-4) has a time base (period)
and a time that the output stays high (duty cycle). The
frequency of the PWM is the inverse of the period
(1/period).
FIGURE 9-4:
PWM OUTPUT
Period
PWM Duty Cycle = (CCPR1L:CCP1CON<5:4>) •
TOSC • (TMR2 Prescale Value)
CCPR1L and CCP1CON<5:4> can be written to at any
time, but the duty cycle value is not latched into
CCPR1H until after a match between PR2 and TMR2
occurs (i.e., the period is complete). In PWM mode,
CCPR1H is a read-only register.
The CCPR1H register and a 2-bit internal latch
are used to double-buffer the PWM duty cycle. This
double-buffering is essential for glitchless PWM
operation.
When the CCPR1H and 2-bit latch match TMR2,
concatenated with an internal 2-bit Q clock or 2 bits of
the TMR2 prescaler, the CCP1 pin is cleared.

SYNCHRONOUS SERIAL PORT
(SSP) MODULE
SSP Module Overview
The Synchronous Serial Port (SSP) module is a serial
interface useful for communicating with other peripheral or microcontroller devices. These peripheral
devices may be serial EEPROMs, shift registers,
display drivers, A/D converters, etc. The SSP module
can operate in one of two modes:
• Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI)
• Inter-Integrated Circuit (I2C™)
An overview of I2C operations and additional information on the SSP module can be found in the “PIC® MidRange MCU Family Reference Manual” (DS33023).
Refer to Application Note AN578, “Use of the SSP
Module in the I 2C™ Multi-Master Environment”
(DS00578).
10.2
SPI Mode
This section contains register definitions
operational characteristics of the SPI module.
and
SPI mode allows 8 bits of data to be synchronously
transmitted and received simultaneously. To
accomplish communication, typically three pins are
used:
• Serial Data Out (SDO)
• Serial Data In (SDI)
• Serial Clock (SCK)
RB2/SDO/RX/DT
RB1/SDI/SDA
RB4/SCK/SCL
Additionally, a fourth pin may be used when in a Slave
mode of operation:
• Slave Select (SS)
RB5/SS/TX/CK
When initializing the SPI, several options need to be
specified. This is done by programming the appropriate
control bits in the SSPCON register (SSPCON<5:0>)
and the SSPSTAT register (SSPSTAT<7:6>). These
control bits allow the following to be specified:
•
•
•
•
Master mode (SCK is the clock output)
Slave mode (SCK is the clock input)
Clock Polarity (Idle state of SCK)
Clock Edge (output data on rising/falling
edge of SCK)
• Clock Rate (Master mode only)
• Slave Select mode (Slave mode only)
Note:
 2002-2013 Microchip Technology Inc.
Before enabling the module in SPI Slave
mode, the state of the clock line (SCK)
must match the polarity selected for the
Idle state. The clock line can be observed
by reading the SCK pin. The polarity of the
Idle state is determined by the CKP bit
(SSPCON<4>).

SSP I 2C Mode Operation
The SSP module in I2C mode fully implements all slave
functions, except general call support and provides
interrupts on Start and Stop bits in hardware to facilitate
firmware implementations of the master functions. The
SSP module implements the standard mode
specifications, as well as 7-bit and 10-bit addressing.
Two pins are used for data transfer. These are the RB4/
SCK/SCL pin, which is the clock (SCL) and the RB1/
SDI/SDA pin, which is the data (SDA). The user must
configure these pins as inputs or outputs through the
TRISB<4,1> bits.
To ensure proper communication of the I2C Slave mode,
the TRIS bits (TRISx [SDA, SCL]) corresponding to the
I2C pins must be set to ‘1’. If any TRIS bits (TRISx<7:0>)
of the port containing the I2C pins (PORTx [SDA, SCL])
are changed in software during I2C communication
using a Read-Modify-Write instruction (BSF, BCF), then
the I2C mode may stop functioning properly and I2C
communication may suspend. Do not change any of the
TRISx bits (TRIS bits of the port containing the I2C pins)
using the instruction BSF or BCF during I2C communication. If it is absolutely necessary to change the TRISx
bits during communication, the following method can be
used:

Ensures <4:3> bits are ‘11’
Sets <2:1> as output, but will not alter other bits
User can use their own logic here, such as IORLW, XORLW and ANDLW
The SSP module functions are enabled by setting SSP
Enable bit, SSPEN (SSPCON<5>).
The SSPCON register allows control of the I 2C operation. Four mode selection bits (SSPCON<3:0>) allow
one of the following I 2C modes to be selected:

Selection of any I 2C mode, with the SSPEN bit set,
forces the SCL and SDA pins to be open-drain, provided these pins are programmed to inputs by setting
the appropriate TRISB bits. Pull-up resistors must be
provided externally to the SCL and SDA pins for proper
operation of the I2C module.
Additional information on SSP I2C operation may be
found in the “PIC® Mid-Range MCU Family Reference
Manual” (DS33023).
The SSP module has five registers for I2C operation:
•
•
•
•
SSP Control register (SSPCON)
SSP Status register (SSPSTAT)
Serial Receive/Transmit Buffer register (SSPBUF)
SSP Shift register (SSPSR) – Not directly

• SSP Address register (SSPADD)

10.3.1
SLAVE MODE
In Slave mode, the SCL and SDA pins must be configured as inputs (TRISB<4,1> set). The SSP module will
override the input state with the output data when
required (slave-transmitter).
The sequence of events for 10-bit Address mode is as
follows, with steps 7-9 for slave transmitter:
1.
2.
When an address is matched, or the data transfer after
an address match is received, the hardware automatically will generate the Acknowledge (ACK) pulse and
then load the SSPBUF register with the received value
currently in the SSPSR register.
3.
Either or both of the following conditions will cause the
SSP module not to give this ACK pulse:
5.
a)
b)
The Buffer Full bit, BF (SSPSTAT<0>), was set
before the transfer was received.
The Overflow bit, SSPOV (SSPCON<6>), was
set before the transfer was received.
In this case, the SSPSR register value is not loaded
into the SSPBUF, but bit SSPIF (PIR1<3>) is set.
Table 10-2 shows what happens when a data transfer
byte is received, given the status of bits BF and
SSPOV. The shaded cells show the condition where
user software did not properly clear the overflow condition. Flag bit, BF, is cleared by reading the SSPBUF
register while bit, SSPOV, is cleared through software.
The SCL clock input must have a minimum high and
low for proper operation. The high and low times of the
I2C specification, as well as the requirement of the SSP
module, are shown in timing parameter #100 and
parameter #101.
10.3.1.1
Addressing
Once the SSP module has been enabled, it waits for a
Start condition to occur. Following the Start condition,
the eight bits are shifted into the SSPSR register. All
incoming bits are sampled with the rising edge of the
clock (SCL) line. The value of register SSPSR<7:1> is
compared to the value of the SSPADD register. The
address is compared on the falling edge of the eighth
clock (SCL) pulse. If the addresses match and the BF
and SSPOV bits are clear, the following events occur:
a)
b)
c)
d)
The SSPSR register value is loaded into the
SSPBUF register.
The Buffer Full bit, BF, is set.
An ACK pulse is generated.
SSP Interrupt Flag bit, SSPIF (PIR1<3>), is set
(interrupt is generated if enabled) – on the falling
edge of the ninth SCL pulse.
In 10-bit Address mode, two address bytes need to be
received by the slave device. The five Most Significant
bits (MSbs) of the first address byte specify if this is a
10-bit address. Bit R/W (SSPSTAT<2>) must specify a
write so the slave device will receive the second
address byte. For a 10-bit address, the first byte would
equal ‘1111 0 A9 A8 0’, where A9 and A8 are the
two MSbs of the address.

10.3.1.2
Reception
When the R/W bit of the address byte is clear and an
address match occurs, the R/W bit of the SSPSTAT
register is cleared. The received address is loaded into
the SSPBUF register.
When the address byte overflow condition exists, then
a no Acknowledge (ACK) pulse is given. An overflow
condition is indicated if either bit, BF (SSPSTAT<0>), is
set or bit, SSPOV (SSPCON<6>), is set.
An SSP interrupt is generated for each data transfer
byte. Flag bit, SSPIF (PIR1<3>), must be cleared in
software. The SSPSTAT register is used to determine
the status of the byte.
10.3.1.3
Transmission
When the R/W bit of the incoming address byte is set
and an address match occurs, the R/W bit of the
SSPSTAT register is set. The received address is
loaded into the SSPBUF register. The ACK pulse will
be sent on the ninth bit and pin RB4/SCK/SCL is held
low. The transmit data must be loaded into the
SSPBUF register which also loads the SSPSR register.
Then, pin RB4/SCK/SCL should be enabled by setting
bit CKP (SSPCON<4>). The master device must monitor the SCL pin prior to asserting another clock pulse.
The slave devices may be holding off the master device
by stretching the clock. The eight data bits are shifted
out on the falling edge of the SCL input. This ensures
that the SDA signal is valid during the SCL high time
(Figure 10-7).

of the byte. Flag bit, SSPIF, is set on the falling edge of
the ninth clock pulse.
the data transfer is complete. When the ACK is latched
by the slave device, the slave logic is reset (resets
SSPSTAT register) and the slave device then monitors
for another occurrence of the Start bit. If the SDA line
was low (ACK), the transmit data must be loaded into
the SSPBUF register which also loads the SSPSR
register. Then, pin RB4/SCK/SCL should be enabled
by setting bit CKP.
As a slave transmitter, the ACK pulse from the master
receiver is latched on the rising edge of the ninth SCL
input pulse. If the SDA line was high (not ACK), then

MASTER MODE OPERATION
10.3.3
Master mode operation is supported in firmware using
interrupt generation on the detection of the Start and
Stop conditions. The Stop (P) and Start (S) bits are
cleared from a Reset, or when the SSP module is disabled. The Stop (P) and Start (S) bits will toggle based
on the Start and Stop conditions. Control of the I 2C bus
may be taken when the P bit is set, or the bus is Idle
and both the S and P bits are clear.
MULTI-MASTER MODE OPERATION
In Multi-Master mode operation, the interrupt generation on the detection of the Start and Stop conditions
allows the determination of when the bus is free. The
Stop (P) and Start (S) bits are cleared from a Reset, or
when the SSP module is disabled. The Stop (P) and
Start (S) bits will toggle based on the Start and Stop
conditions. Control of the I 2C bus may be taken when
bit P (SSPSTAT<4>) is set, or the bus is Idle and both
the S and P bits clear. When the bus is busy, enabling
the SSP interrupt will generate the interrupt when the
Stop condition occurs.
In Master mode operation, the SCL and SDA lines are
manipulated in firmware by clearing the corresponding
TRISB<4,1> bit(s). The output level is always low, irrespective of the value(s) in PORTB<4,1>. So, when
transmitting data, a ‘1’ data bit must have the
TRISB<1> bit set (input) and a ‘0’ data bit must have
the TRISB<1> bit cleared (output). The same scenario
is true for the SCL line with the TRISB<4> bit. Pull-up
resistors must be provided externally to the SCL and
SDA pins for proper operation of the I2C module.
In Multi-Master mode operation, the SDA line must be
monitored to see if the signal level is the expected output level. This check only needs to be done when a
high level is output. If a high level is expected and a low
level is present, the device needs to release the SDA
and SCL lines (set TRISB<4,1>). There are two stages
where this arbitration can be lost:
The following events will cause the SSP Interrupt Flag
bit, SSPIF, to be set (SSP Interrupt if enabled):
• Address Transfer
• Data Transfer
• Start condition
• Stop condition
• Data transfer byte transmitted/received
When the slave logic is enabled, the slave device
continues to receive. If arbitration was lost during the
address transfer stage, communication to the device
may be in progress. If addressed, an ACK pulse will be
generated. If arbitration was lost during the data
transfer stage, the device will need to retransfer the
data at a later time.
Master mode operation can be done with either the
Slave mode Idle (SSPM3:SSPM0 = 1011), or with the
Slave mode active. When both Master mode operation
and Slave modes are used, the software needs to
differentiate the source(s) of the interrupt.
For more information on Multi-Master mode operation,
see Application Note AN578, “Use of the SSP Module
in the of I2C™ Multi-Master Environment”.
For more information on Master mode operation, see

The AUSART can be configured in the following
modes:
• Asynchronous (full-duplex)
• Synchronous – Master (half-duplex)
• Synchronous – Slave (half-duplex)
The Addressable Universal Synchronous Asynchronous
Receiver Transmitter (AUSART) module is one of the
two serial I/O modules. (AUSART is also known as a
Serial Communications Interface or SCI.) The AUSART
can be configured as a full-duplex asynchronous system
that can communicate with peripheral devices, such as
CRT terminals and personal computers, or it can be
configured as a half-duplex synchronous system that
can communicate with peripheral devices, such as A/D
or D/A integrated circuits, serial EEPROMs, etc.
REGISTER 11-1:
Bit SPEN (RCSTA<7>) and bits TRISB<5,2> have to
be set in order to configure pins, RB5/SS/TX/CK and
RB2/SDO/RX/DT, as the Addressable Universal
Synchronous Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter.
The AUSART module also has a multi-processor
communication capability, using 9-bit address
detection.

11.1.1
AUSART Baud Rate Generator
(BRG)
The PIC16F87/88 has an 8 MHz INTRC that can be
used as the system clock, thereby eliminating the need
for external components to provide the clock source.
When the INTRC provides the system clock, the AUSART module will also use the INTRC as its system
clock. Table 11-1 shows some of the INTRC
frequencies that can be used to generate the AUSART
module’s baud rate.
The BRG supports both the Asynchronous and
Synchronous modes of the AUSART. It is a dedicated
8-bit Baud Rate Generator. The SPBRG register
controls the period of a free running 8-bit timer. In Asynchronous mode, bit BRGH (TXSTA<2>) also controls
the baud rate. In Synchronous mode, bit BRGH is
ignored. Table 11-1 shows the formula for computation
of the baud rate for different AUSART modes which
only apply in Master mode (internal clock).
11.1.2
LOW-POWER MODE OPERATION
The system clock is used to generate the desired baud
rate; however, when a low-power mode is entered, the
low-power clock source may be operating at a different
frequency than in full power execution. In Sleep mode,
no clocks are present. This may require the value in
SPBRG to be adjusted.
Given the desired baud rate and FOSC, the nearest
integer value for the SPBRG register can be calculated
using the formula in Table 11-1. From this, the error in
baud rate can be determined.
It may be advantageous to use the high baud rate
(BRGH = 1) even for slower baud clocks. This is
because the FOSC/(16(X + 1)) equation can reduce the
baud rate error in some cases.
11.1.3
SAMPLING
The data on the RB2/SDO/RX/DT pin is sampled three
times by a majority detect circuit to determine if a high
or a low level is present at the RX pin.
Writing a new value to the SPBRG register causes the
BRG timer to be reset (or cleared). This ensures the
BRG does not wait for a timer overflow before
outputting the new baud rate.

AUSART Asynchronous Mode
interrupt can be enabled/disabled by setting/clearing
enable bit, TXIE (PIE1<4>). Flag bit TXIF will be set,
regardless of the state of enable bit TXIE and cannot be
cleared in software. It will reset only when new data is
loaded into the TXREG register. While flag bit TXIF
indicates the status of the TXREG register, another bit,
TRMT (TXSTA<1>), shows the status of the TSR
register. Status bit TRMT is a read-only bit which is set
when the TSR register is empty. No interrupt logic is
tied to this bit, so the user has to poll this bit in order to
determine if the TSR register is empty.
In this mode, the AUSART uses standard Non-Returnto-Zero (NRZ) format (one Start bit, eight or nine data
bits and one Stop bit). The most common data format
is 8 bits. An on-chip, dedicated, 8-bit Baud Rate
Generator can be used to derive standard baud rate
frequencies from the oscillator. The AUSART transmits
and receives the LSb first. The transmitter and receiver
are functionally independent, but use the same data
format and baud rate. The Baud Rate Generator
produces a clock, either x16 or x64 of the bit shift rate,
depending on bit BRGH (TXSTA<2>). Parity is not
supported by the hardware, but can be implemented in
software (and stored as the ninth data bit).
Asynchronous mode is stopped during Sleep.
Note 1: The TSR register is not mapped in data
memory, so it is not available to the user.
2: Flag bit TXIF is set when enable bit TXEN
is set. TXIF is cleared by loading TXREG.
Asynchronous mode is selected by clearing bit SYNC
(TXSTA<4>).
Transmission is enabled by setting enable bit TXEN
(TXSTA<5>). The actual transmission will not occur
until the TXREG register has been loaded with data
and the Baud Rate Generator (BRG) has produced a
shift clock (Figure 11-2). The transmission can also be
started by first loading the TXREG register and then
setting enable bit TXEN. Normally, when transmission
is first started, the TSR register is empty. At that point,
transfer to the TXREG register will result in an immediate transfer to TSR, resulting in an empty TXREG. A
back-to-back transfer is thus possible (Figure 11-3).
Clearing enable bit TXEN during a transmission will
cause the transmission to be aborted and will reset the
transmitter. As a result, the RB5/SS/TX/CK pin will
revert to high-impedance.

AUSART ASYNCHRONOUS
TRANSMITTER
The AUSART transmitter block diagram is shown in
Figure 11-1. The heart of the transmitter is the Transmit
(Serial) Shift Register (TSR). The Shift register obtains
its data from the Read/Write Transmit Buffer register,
TXREG. The TXREG register is loaded with data in
software. The TSR register is not loaded until the Stop
bit has been transmitted from the previous load. As
soon as the Stop bit is transmitted, the TSR is loaded
with new data from the TXREG register (if available).
Once the TXREG register transfers the data to the TSR
register (occurs in one TCY), the TXREG register is
empty and flag bit, TXIF (PIR1<4>), is set. This
FIGURE 11-1:
In order to select 9-bit transmission, transmit bit, TX9
(TXSTA<6>), should be set and the ninth bit should be
written to TX9D (TXSTA<0>). The ninth bit must be
written before writing the 8-bit data to the TXREG
register. This is because a data write to the TXREG
register can result in an immediate transfer of the data
to the TSR register (if the TSR is empty). In such a
case, an incorrect ninth data bit may be loaded in the
TSR register.

AUSART ASYNCHRONOUS
RECEIVER
is possible for two bytes of data to be received and
transferred to the RCREG FIFO and a third byte to
begin shifting to the RSR register. On the detection of
the Stop bit of the third byte, if the RCREG register is
still full, the Overrun Error bit, OERR (RCSTA<1>), will
be set. The word in the RSR will be lost. The RCREG
register can be read twice to retrieve the two bytes in
the FIFO. Overrun bit OERR has to be cleared in software. This is done by resetting the receive logic (CREN
is cleared and then set). If bit OERR is set, transfers
from the RSR register to the RCREG register are inhibited and no further data will be received. It is, therefore,
essential to clear error bit OERR if it is set. Framing
Error bit, FERR (RCSTA<2>), is set if a Stop bit is
detected as clear. Bit FERR and the 9th receive bit are
buffered the same way as the receive data. Reading
the RCREG will load bits RX9D and FERR with new
values; therefore, it is essential for the user to read the
RCSTA register, before reading the RCREG register, in
order not to lose the old FERR and RX9D information.
The receiver block diagram is shown in Figure 11-4.
The data is received on the RB2/SDO/RX/DT pin and
drives the data recovery block. The data recovery block
is actually a high-speed shifter, operating at x16 times
the baud rate; whereas, the main receive serial shifter
operates at the bit rate or at FOSC.
Once Asynchronous mode is selected, reception is
enabled by setting bit CREN (RCSTA<4>).
The heart of the receiver is the Receive (Serial) Shift
Register (RSR). After sampling the Stop bit, the
received data in the RSR is transferred to the RCREG
register (if it is empty). If the transfer is complete, flag
bit, RCIF (PIR1<5>), is set. The actual interrupt can be
enabled/disabled by setting/clearing enable bit RCIE
(PIE1<5>). Flag bit RCIF is a read-only bit which is
cleared by the hardware. It is cleared when the RCREG
register has been read and is empty. The RCREG is a
double-buffered register (i.e., it is a two-deep FIFO). It

SETTING UP 9-BIT MODE WITH
ADDRESS DETECT
• Flag bit RCIF will be set when reception is
complete and an interrupt will be generated if
enable bit RCIE was set.
• Read the RCSTA register to get the ninth bit and
determine if any error occurred during reception.
• Read the 8-bit received data by reading the
RCREG register to determine if the device is
being addressed.
• If any error occurred, clear the error by clearing
enable bit CREN.
• If the device has been addressed, clear the
ADDEN bit to allow data bytes and address bytes
to be read into the receive buffer and interrupt the
CPU.
When setting up an asynchronous reception with
address detect enabled:
• Initialize the SPBRG register for the appropriate
baud rate. If a high-speed baud rate is desired,
set bit BRGH.
• Enable the asynchronous serial port by clearing
bit SYNC and setting bit SPEN.
• If interrupts are desired, then set enable bit RCIE.
• Set bit RX9 to enable 9-bit reception.
• Set ADDEN to enable address detect.
• Enable the reception by setting enable bit CREN.

AUSART Synchronous
Master Mode
In Synchronous Master mode, the data is transmitted in
a half-duplex manner (i.e., transmission and reception
do not occur at the same time). When transmitting data,
the reception is inhibited and vice versa. Synchronous
mode is entered by setting bit SYNC (TXSTA<4>). In
addition, enable bit SPEN (RCSTA<7>) is set in order
to configure the RB5/SS/TX/CK and RB2/SDO/RX/DT
I/O pins to CK (clock) and DT (data) lines, respectively.
The Master mode indicates that the processor transmits the master clock on the CK line. The Master mode
is entered by setting bit CSRC (TXSTA<7>).
11.3.1
AUSART SYNCHRONOUS MASTER
TRANSMISSION
The AUSART transmitter block diagram is shown in
Figure 11-6. The heart of the transmitter is the Transmit
(Serial) Shift Register (TSR). The Shift register obtains
its data from the Read/Write Transmit Buffer register,
TXREG. The TXREG register is loaded with data in
software. The TSR register is not loaded until the last
bit has been transmitted from the previous load. As
soon as the last bit is transmitted, the TSR is loaded
with new data from the TXREG (if available). Once the
TXREG register transfers the data to the TSR register
(occurs in one TCYCLE), the TXREG is empty and
interrupt bit TXIF (PIR1<4>) is set. The interrupt can be
enabled/disabled by setting/clearing enable bit TXIE
(PIE1<4>). Flag bit TXIF will be set, regardless of the
state of enable bit TXIE and cannot be cleared in
software. It will reset only when new data is loaded into
the TXREG register. While flag bit TXIF indicates the
status of the TXREG register, another bit, TRMT
(TXSTA<1>), shows the status of the TSR register.
TRMT is a read-only bit which is set when the TSR is
empty. No interrupt logic is tied to this bit, so the user
has to poll this bit in order to determine if the TSR register is empty. The TSR is not mapped in data memory,
so it is not available to the user.
Transmission is enabled by setting enable bit TXEN
(TXSTA<5>). The actual transmission will not occur
until the TXREG register has been loaded with data.
The first data bit will be shifted out on the next available
rising edge of the clock on the CK line. Data out is
stable around the falling edge of the synchronous clock
(Figure 11-9). The transmission can also be started by
first loading the TXREG register and then setting bit
TXEN (Figure 11-10). This is advantageous when slow
baud rates are selected, since the BRG is kept in Reset
when bits TXEN, CREN and SREN are clear. Setting
enable bit TXEN will start the BRG, creating a shift
clock immediately. Normally, when transmission is first
started, the TSR register is empty, so a transfer to the
TXREG register will result in an immediate transfer to
TSR, resulting in an empty TXREG. Back-to-back
transfers are possible.
DS30487D-page 108
Clearing enable bit TXEN during a transmission will
cause the transmission to be aborted and will reset the
transmitter. The DT and CK pins will revert to highimpedance. If either bit CREN or bit SREN is set during
a transmission, the transmission is aborted and the DT
pin reverts to a high-impedance state (for a reception).
The CK pin will remain an output if bit CSRC is set
(internal clock). The transmitter logic, however, is not
reset, although it is disconnected from the pins. In order
to reset the transmitter, the user has to clear bit TXEN.
If bit SREN is set (to interrupt an on-going transmission
and receive a single word), then after the single word is
received, bit SREN will be cleared and the serial port
will revert back to transmitting, since bit TXEN is still
set. The DT line will immediately switch from HighImpedance Receive mode to transmit and start driving.
To avoid this, bit TXEN should be cleared.
In order to select 9-bit transmission, the TX9
(TXSTA<6>) bit should be set and the ninth bit should
be written to bit TX9D (TXSTA<0>). The ninth bit must
be written before writing the 8-bit data to the TXREG
register. This is because a data write to the TXREG can
result in an immediate transfer of the data to the TSR
register (if the TSR is empty). If the TSR was empty and
the TXREG was written before writing the “new” TX9D,
the “present” value of bit TX9D is loaded.
Steps to follow when setting up a synchronous master
transmission:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
Initialize the SPBRG register for the appropriate
baud rate (Section 11.1 “AUSART Baud Rate
Generator (BRG)”).
Enable the synchronous master serial port by
setting bits SYNC, SPEN and CSRC.
If interrupts are desired, set enable bit TXIE.
If 9-bit transmission is desired, set bit TX9.
Enable the transmission by setting bit TXEN.
If 9-bit transmission is selected, the ninth bit
should be loaded in bit TX9D.
Start transmission by loading data to the TXREG
register.
If using interrupts, ensure that GIE and PEIE
(bits 7 and 6) of the INTCON register are set.

RECEPTION
receive data. Reading the RCREG register will load bit
RX9D with a new value, therefore, it is essential for the
user to read the RCSTA register, before reading
RCREG, in order not to lose the old RX9D information.
Once Synchronous mode is selected, reception is
enabled by setting either enable bit SREN
(RCSTA<5>), or enable bit CREN (RCSTA<4>). Data is
sampled on the RB2/SDO/RX/DT pin on the falling
edge of the clock. If enable bit SREN is set, then only a
single word is received. If enable bit CREN is set, the
reception is continuous until CREN is cleared. If both
bits are set, CREN takes precedence.
When setting up a synchronous master reception:
1.
Initialize the SPBRG register for the appropriate
baud rate (Section 11.1 “AUSART Baud Rate
Generator (BRG)”).
2. Enable the synchronous master serial port by
setting bits SYNC, SPEN and CSRC.
3. Ensure bits CREN and SREN are clear.
4. If interrupts are desired, then set enable bit
RCIE.
5. If 9-bit reception is desired, then set bit RX9.
6. If a single reception is required, set bit SREN.
For continuous reception, set bit CREN.
7. Interrupt flag bit, RCIF, will be set when
reception is complete and an interrupt will be
generated if enable bit, RCIE, was set.
8. Read the RCSTA register to get the ninth bit (if
enabled) and determine if any error occurred
during reception.
9. Read the 8-bit received data by reading the
RCREG register.
10. If any error occurred, clear the error by clearing
bit CREN.
11. If using interrupts, ensure that GIE and PEIE
(bits 7 and 6) of the INTCON register are set.
After clocking the last bit, the received data in the
Receive Shift Register (RSR) is transferred to the
RCREG register (if it is empty). When the transfer is
complete, interrupt flag bit, RCIF (PIR1<5>), is set. The
actual interrupt can be enabled/disabled by setting/
clearing enable bit RCIE (PIE1<5>).
Flag bit RCIF is a read-only bit which is reset by the
hardware. In this case, it is reset when the RCREG
register has been read and is empty. The RCREG is a
double-buffered register (i.e., it is a two-deep FIFO). It is
possible for two bytes of data to be received and
transferred to the RCREG FIFO and a third byte to begin
shifting into the RSR register. On the clocking of the last
bit of the third byte, if the RCREG register is still full, then
Overrun Error bit, OERR (RCSTA<1>), is set. The word
in the RSR will be lost. The RCREG register can be read
twice to retrieve the two bytes in the FIFO. Bit OERR has
to be cleared in software (by clearing bit CREN). If bit
OERR is set, transfers from the RSR to the RCREG are
inhibited, so it is essential to clear bit OERR if it is set.
The ninth receive bit is buffered the same way as the

AUSART Synchronous Slave Mode
e)
Synchronous Slave mode differs from the Master mode
in the fact that the shift clock is supplied externally at
the RB5/SS/TX/CK pin (instead of being supplied internally in Master mode). This allows the device to transfer or receive data while in Sleep mode. Slave mode is
entered by clearing bit CSRC (TXSTA<7>).

When setting up a synchronous slave transmission,
follow these steps:

The operation of the Synchronous Master and Slave
modes is identical, except in the case of the Sleep mode.

SLEEP instruction is executed, the following will occur:
a)
b)
c)
d)
If enable bit TXIE is set, the interrupt will wake
the chip from Sleep and if the global interrupt is
enabled, the program will branch to the interrupt
vector (0004h).
The first word will immediately transfer to the
TSR register and transmit.
The second word will remain in the TXREG register.
Flag bit TXIF will not be set.
When the first word has been shifted out of TSR,
the TXREG register will transfer the second word
to the TSR and flag bit TXIF will now be set.

If 9-bit transmission is selected, the ninth bit
should be loaded in bit TX9D.

Sleep. On completely receiving the word, the RSR register will transfer the data to the RCREG register and if
enable bit RCIE bit is set, the interrupt generated will
wake the chip from Sleep. If the global interrupt is

ANALOG-TO-DIGITAL
CONVERTER (A/D) MODULE
The A/D module has five registers:
The Analog-to-Digital (A/D) converter module has
seven inputs for 18/20 pin devices (PIC16F88 devices
only).
The conversion of an analog input signal results in a
corresponding 10-bit digital number. The A/D module
has a high and low-voltage reference input that is
software selectable to some combination of VDD, VSS,
VREF- (RA2) or VREF+ (RA3).
The A/D converter has a unique feature of being able
to operate while the device is in Sleep mode. To operate in Sleep, the A/D conversion clock must be derived
from the A/D’s internal RC oscillator.

A/D Acquisition Requirements
For the A/D converter to meet its specified accuracy, the
charge holding capacitor (CHOLD) must be allowed to
fully charge to the input channel voltage level. The analog input model is shown in Figure 12-2. The source
impedance (RS) and the internal sampling switch (RSS)
impedance directly affect the time required to charge the
capacitor CHOLD. The sampling switch (RSS) impedance
varies over the device voltage (VDD), see Figure 12-2.
The maximum recommended impedance for analog
sources is 10 k. As the impedance is decreased, the
EQUATION 12-1:
TACQ
TC
TACQ
acquisition time may be decreased. After the analog
input channel is selected (changed), this acquisition
must be done before the conversion can be started.
To calculate the minimum acquisition time,
Equation 12-1 may be used. This equation assumes
that 1/2 LSb error is used (1024 steps for the A/D). The
1/2 LSb error is the maximum error allowed for the A/D
to meet its specified resolution.
To calculate the minimum acquisition time, TACQ, see
the “PIC® Mid-Range MCU Family Reference Manual”
(DS33023).

2: The charge holding capacitor (CHOLD) is not discharged after each conversion.
3: The maximum recommended impedance for analog sources is 10 k. This is required to meet the pin
leakage specification.
4: After a conversion has completed, a 2.0 TAD delay must complete before acquisition can begin again.
During this time, the holding capacitor is not connected to the selected A/D input channel.

Selecting the A/D Conversion
Clock
12.3
Operation in Power-Managed
Modes
The A/D conversion time per bit is defined as TAD. The
A/D conversion requires 9.0 TAD per 10-bit conversion.
The source of the A/D conversion clock is software
selectable. The seven possible options for TAD are:
The selection of the automatic acquisition time and
A/D conversion clock is determined in part by the clock
source and frequency while in a power-managed
mode.

•
•
•
•
•
If the A/D is expected to operate while the device is in
a power-managed mode, the ADCS2:ADCS0 bits in
ADCON0 and ADCON1 should be updated in accordance with the power-managed mode clock that will be
used. After the power-managed mode is entered
(either of the power-managed Run modes), an A/D
acquisition or conversion may be started. Once an
acquisition or conversion is started, the device should
continue to be clocked by the same power-managed
mode clock source until the conversion has been
completed.

Configuring Analog Port Pins
12.5
The ADCON1, ANSEL, TRISA and TRISB registers
control the operation of the A/D port pins. The port pins
that are desired as analog inputs must have their
corresponding TRIS bits set (input). If the TRIS bit is
cleared (output), the digital output level (VOH or VOL)
will be converted.
Clearing the GO/DONE bit during a conversion will
abort the current conversion. The A/D Result register
pair will NOT be updated with the partially completed
A/D conversion sample. That is, the ADRESH:ADRESL
registers will continue to contain the value of the last
completed conversion (or the last value written to the
ADRESH:ADRESL registers). After the A/D conversion
is aborted, a 2 TAD wait is required before the next
acquisition is started. After this 2 TAD wait, acquisition
on the selected channel is automatically started. The
GO/DONE bit can then be set to start the conversion.
The A/D operation is independent of the state of the
CHS<2:0> bits and the TRIS bits.
Note 1: When reading the Port register, all pins
configured as analog input channels will
read as cleared (a low level). Pins configured as digital inputs will convert an
analog input. Analog levels on a digitally
configured input will not affect the
conversion accuracy.
In Figure 12-3, after the GO/DONE bit is set, the first
time segment has a minimum of TCY and a maximum of
TAD.
Note:
2: Analog levels on any pin that is defined as
a digital input (including the RA4:RA0 and
RB7:RB6 pins), may cause the input
buffer to consume current out of the
device specification.

A/D RESULT REGISTERS
The ADRESH:ADRESL register pair is the location
where the 10-bit A/D result is loaded at the completion
of the A/D conversion. This register pair is 16 bits wide.
The A/D module gives the flexibility to left or right justify
the 10-bit result in the 16-bit result register. The A/D
Format Select bit (ADFM) controls this justification.
Figure 12-4 shows the operation of the A/D result
justification. The extra bits are loaded with ‘0’s. When
an A/D result will not overwrite these locations (A/D
disable), these registers may be used as two general
purpose 8-bit registers.

A/D Operation During Sleep
12.7
The A/D module can operate during Sleep mode. This
requires that the A/D clock source be set to RC
(ADCS1:ADCS0 = 11). When the RC clock source is
selected, the A/D module waits one instruction cycle
before starting the conversion. This allows the SLEEP
instruction to be executed which eliminates all digital
switching noise from the conversion. When the conversion is completed, the GO/DONE bit will be cleared and
the result loaded into the ADRES registers. If the A/D
interrupt is enabled, the device will wake-up from
Sleep. If the A/D interrupt is not enabled, the A/D
module will then be turned off, although the ADON bit
will remain set.
A device Reset forces all registers to their Reset state.
The A/D module is disabled and any conversion in
progress is aborted. All A/D input pins are configured
as analog inputs.
The value that is in the ADRESH:ADRESL registers
is not modified for a Power-on Reset. The
ADRESH:ADRESL registers will contain unknown data
after a Power-on Reset.
12.8
Turning off the A/D places the A/D module in its lowest
current consumption state.
For the A/D module to operate in Sleep,
the A/D clock source must be set to RC
(ADCS1:ADCS0 = 11). To perform an A/D
conversion in Sleep, ensure the SLEEP
instruction immediately follows the
instruction that sets the GO/DONE bit.
TABLE 12-2:
Use of the CCP Trigger
An A/D conversion can be started by the “special event
trigger” of the CCP module. This requires that the
CCP1M3:CCP1M0 bits (CCP1CON<3:0>) be programmed as ‘1011’ and that the A/D module is enabled
(ADON bit is set). When the trigger occurs, the GO/
DONE bit will be set, starting the A/D conversion and
the Timer1 counter will be reset to zero. Timer1 is reset
to automatically repeat the A/D acquisition period with
minimal
software
overhead
(moving
the
ADRESH:ADRESL to the desired location). The appropriate analog input channel must be selected and the
minimum acquisition done before the “special event
trigger” sets the GO/DONE bit (starts a conversion).
When the A/D clock source is another clock option (not
RC), a SLEEP instruction will cause the present conversion to be aborted and the A/D module to be turned off,
though the ADON bit will remain set.
Note:
Effects of a Reset
If the A/D module is not enabled (ADON is cleared), then
the “special event trigger” will be ignored by the A/D
module, but will still reset the Timer1 counter.

otherwise, a false interrupt may occur.
There are eight modes of operation for the comparators. The CMCON register is used to select these
modes. Figure 13-1 shows the eight possible modes.
The TRISA register controls the data direction of the
comparator pins for each mode. If the Comparator
mode is changed, the comparator output level may not
be valid for the specified mode change delay shown in

Comparator Operation
A single comparator is shown in Figure 13-2, along with
the relationship between the analog input levels and
the digital output. When the analog input at VIN+ is less
than the analog input VIN-, the output of the comparator
is a digital low level. When the analog input at VIN+ is
greater than the analog input VIN-, the output of the
comparator is a digital high level. The shaded areas of
the output of the comparator in Figure 13-2 represent
the uncertainty due to input offsets and response time.

The comparator module also allows the selection of an
internally generated voltage reference for the
comparators. Section 14.0 “Comparator Voltage
Reference Module” contains a detailed description of
the Comparator Voltage Reference module that
provides this signal. The internal reference signal is
used when comparators are in mode CM<2:0> = 010
(Figure 13-1). In this mode, the internal voltage
reference is applied to the VIN+ pin of both
comparators.
13.4
An external or internal reference signal may be used
depending on the comparator operating mode. The
analog signal present at VIN- is compared to the signal
at VIN+ and the digital output of the comparator is
adjusted accordingly (Figure 13-2).

Comparator Response Time
Response time is the minimum time, after selecting a
new reference voltage or input source, before the
comparator output has a valid level. If the internal
reference is changed, the maximum delay of the internal voltage reference must be considered when using
the comparator outputs. Otherwise, the maximum
delay of the comparators should be used (Section 18.0
“Electrical Characteristics”).
13.5
Comparator Outputs
The comparator outputs are read through the CMCON
register. These bits are read-only. The comparator
outputs may also be directly output to the RA3 and RA4
I/O pins. When enabled, multiplexors in the output path
of the RA3 and RA4 pins will switch and the output of
each pin will be the unsynchronized output of the comparator. The uncertainty of each of the comparators is
related to the input offset voltage and the response time
given in the specifications. Figure 13-3 shows the
comparator output block diagram.
The TRISA bits will still function as an output enable/
disable for the RA3 and RA4 pins while in this mode.
Output

The polarity of the comparator outputs can be changed
using the C2INV and C1INV bits (CMCON<5:4>).
13.3.1
EXTERNAL REFERENCE SIGNAL
When external voltage references are used, the
comparator module can be configured to have the comparators operate from the same, or different reference
sources. However, threshold detector applications may
require the same reference. The reference signal must
be between VSS and VDD and can be applied to either
pin of the comparator(s).

Note 1: When reading the Port register, all pins
configured as analog inputs will read as
‘0’. Pins configured as digital inputs will
convert an analog input, according to the

2: Analog levels, on any pin defined as a

Comparator Interrupts
The comparator interrupt flag is set whenever there is
a change in the output value of either comparator.
Software will need to maintain information about the
status of the output bits, as read from CMCON<7:6>, to
determine the actual change that occurred. The CMIF
bit (PIR2 register) is the Comparator Interrupt Flag. The
CMIF bit must be reset by clearing it (‘0’). Since it is
also possible to write a ‘1’ to this register, a simulated
interrupt may be initiated.
The CMIE bit (PIE2 register) and the PEIE bit (INTCON
register) must be set to enable the interrupt. In addition,
the GIE bit must also be set. If any of these bits are
clear, the interrupt is not enabled, though the CMIF bit
will still be set if an interrupt condition occurs.
DS30487D-page 124
Note:
If a change in the CMCON register
(C1OUT or C2OUT) should occur when a
read operation is being executed (start of
the Q2 cycle), then the CMIF (PIR2
register) interrupt flag may not get set.
The user, in the Interrupt Service Routine, can clear the
interrupt in the following manner:
a)
b)
Any read or write of CMCON will end the
mismatch condition.
Clear flag bit CMIF.
A mismatch condition will continue to set flag bit CMIF.
Reading CMCON will end the mismatch condition and
allow flag bit CMIF to be cleared.

Comparator Operation During
Sleep
13.9
When a comparator is active and the device is placed
in Sleep mode, the comparator remains active and the
interrupt is functional, if enabled. This interrupt will
wake-up the device from Sleep mode when enabled.
While the comparator is powered up, higher Sleep
currents than shown in the power-down current
specification will occur. Each operational comparator
will consume additional current, as shown in the comparator specifications. To minimize power consumption
while in Sleep mode, turn off the comparators,
CM<2:0> = 111, before entering Sleep. If the device
wakes up from Sleep, the contents of the CMCON
register are not affected.
13.8
Analog Input Connection
Considerations
A simplified circuit for an analog input is shown in
Figure 13-4. Since the analog pins are connected to a
digital output, they have reverse biased diodes to VDD
and VSS. The analog input, therefore, must be between
VSS and VDD. If the input voltage deviates from this
range by more than 0.6V in either direction, one of the
diodes is forward biased and a latch-up condition may
occur. A maximum source impedance of 10 k is
recommended for the analog sources. Any external
component connected to an analog input pin, such as
a capacitor or a Zener diode, should have very little
leakage current.
Effects of a Reset
A device Reset forces the CMCON register to its Reset
state, causing the comparator module to be in the
Comparator Off mode, CM<2:0> = 111.

COMPARATOR VOLTAGE
REFERENCE MODULE
The comparator voltage reference generator is a 16-tap
resistor ladder network that provides a fixed voltage
reference when the comparators are in mode ‘010’. A
programmable register controls the function of the reference generator. Register 14-1 lists the bit functions of
the CVRCON register.
As shown in Figure 14-1, the resistor ladder is segmented to provide two ranges of CVREF values and has
a power-down function to conserve power when the
reference is not being used. The comparator reference
REGISTER 14-1:
supply voltage (also referred to as CVRSRC) comes
directly from VDD. It should be noted, however, that the
voltage at the top of the ladder is CVRSRC – VSAT,
where VSAT is the saturation voltage of the power
switch transistor. This reference will only be as
accurate as the values of CVRSRC and VSAT.
The output of the reference generator may be
connected to the RA2/AN2/CVREF/VREF- pin (VREF- is
available on the PIC16F88 device only). This can be
used as a simple D/A function by the user if a very highimpedance load is used. The primary purpose of this
function is to provide a test path for testing the
reference generator function.

SPECIAL FEATURES OF THE
CPU
These devices have a host of features intended to maximize system reliability, minimize cost through elimination of external components, provide power-saving
operating modes and offer code protection:
• Reset
- Power-on Reset (POR)
- Power-up Timer (PWRT)
- Oscillator Start-up Timer (OST)
- Brown-out Reset (BOR)
• Interrupts
• Watchdog Timer (WDT)
• Two-Speed Start-up
• Fail-Safe Clock Monitor
• Sleep
• Code Protection
• ID Locations
• In-Circuit Serial Programming™ (ICSP™)
Sleep mode is designed to offer a very low-current
Power-down mode. The user can wake-up from Sleep
through external Reset, Watchdog Timer wake-up or
through an interrupt.
Additional information on special features is available
in the “PIC® Mid-Range MCU Family Reference Manual” (DS33023).
15.1
Configuration Bits
The configuration bits can be programmed (read as
‘0’), or left unprogrammed (read as ‘1’), to select
various device configurations. These bits are mapped
in program memory locations 2007h and 2008h.
The user will note that address 2007h is beyond the
user program memory space which can be accessed
only during programming.
There are two timers that offer necessary delays on
power-up. One is the Oscillator Start-up Timer (OST),
intended to keep the chip in Reset until the crystal
oscillator is stable. The other is the Power-up Timer
(PWRT), which provides a fixed delay of 72 ms (nominal) on power-up only. It is designed to keep the part in
Reset while the power supply stabilizes and is enabled
or disabled using a configuration bit. With these two
timers on-chip, most applications need no external
Reset circuitry.

15.2
Reset
The PIC16F87/88 differentiates between various kinds
of Reset:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Power-on Reset (POR)
MCLR Reset during normal operation
MCLR Reset during Sleep
WDT Reset during normal operation
WDT wake-up during Sleep
Brown-out Reset (BOR)
Some registers are not affected in any Reset condition.
Their status is unknown on POR and unchanged in any
other Reset. Most other registers are reset to a “Reset
state” on Power-on Reset (POR), on the MCLR and
WDT Reset, on MCLR Reset during Sleep and Brownout Reset (BOR). They are not affected by a WDT
wake-up which is viewed as the resumption of normal
operation. The TO and PD bits are set or cleared
differently in different Reset situations, as indicated in
Table 15-3. These bits are used in software to determine the nature of the Reset. Upon a POR, BOR or
wake-up from Sleep, the CPU requires approximately
5-10 s to become ready for code execution. This
delay runs in parallel with any other timers. See
Table 15-4 for a full description of Reset states of all
registers.
A simplified block diagram of the On-Chip Reset Circuit
is shown in Figure 15-1.

PIC16F87/88
15.3
MCLR
PIC16F87/88 devices have a noise filter in the MCLR
Reset path. The filter will detect and ignore small
pulses.
It should be noted that a WDT Reset does not drive
MCLR pin low.
The behavior of the ESD protection on the MCLR pin
has been altered from previous devices of this family.
Voltages applied to the pin that exceed its specification
can result in both MCLR and excessive current beyond
the device specification during the ESD event. The
circuit, as shown in Figure 15-2, is suggested.
Note:
For this reason, Microchip recommends
that the MCLR pin no longer be tied
directly to VDD.
The RA5/MCLR/VPP pin can be configured for MCLR
(default), or as an I/O pin (RA5). This is configured
through the MCLRE bit in Configuration Word 1.

When the device starts normal operation (exits the
Reset condition), device operating parameters (voltage, frequency, temperature,...) must be met to ensure
operation. If these conditions are not met, the device
must be held in Reset until the operating conditions are
met. For more information, see Application Note,
AN607 “Power-up Trouble Shooting” (DS00607).
15.5
The Power-up Timer (PWRT) of the PIC16F87/88 is a
counter that uses the INTRC oscillator as the clock
input. This yields a count of 72 ms. While the PWRT is
counting, the device is held in Reset.
The power-up time delay depends on the INTRC and
will vary from chip-to-chip due to temperature and
process variation. See DC parameter #33 for details.
The PWRT is enabled by clearing configuration bit
PWRTEN.
15.6
Oscillator Start-up Timer (OST)
The Oscillator Start-up Timer (OST) provides a 1024
oscillator cycle (from OSC1 input) delay after the
PWRT delay is over (if enabled). This helps to ensure
that the crystal oscillator or resonator has started and
stabilized.
The OST time-out is invoked only for XT, LP and HS
modes and only on Power-on Reset or wake-up from
Sleep.
PIC16F87/88
15.7
Note 1: External Power-on Reset circuit is required
only if the VDD power-up slope is too slow.
The diode D helps discharge the capacitor
quickly when VDD powers down.
2: R < 40 k is recommended to make sure that
the voltage drop across R does not violate
the device’s electrical specification.
3: R1 = 1 k to 10 k will limit any current flowing into MCLR from external capacitor C
(0.1 F), in the event of RA5/MCLR/VPP pin
breakdown due to Electrostatic Discharge
(ESD) or Electrical Overstress (EOS).
15.4
Power-up Timer (PWRT)
Power-on Reset (POR)
A Power-on Reset pulse is generated on-chip when
VDD rise is detected (in the range of 1.2V-1.7V). To take
advantage of the POR, tie the MCLR pin to VDD, as
described in Section 15.3 “MCLR”. A maximum rise
time for VDD is specified. See Section 18.0 “Electrical
Characteristics” for details.
 2002-2013 Microchip Technology Inc.
Brown-out Reset (BOR)
The configuration bit, BOREN, can enable or disable
the Brown-out Reset circuit. If VDD falls below VBOR
(parameter D005, about 4V) for longer than TBOR
(parameter #35, about 100 s), the brown-out situation
will reset the device. If VDD falls below VBOR for less
than TBOR, a Reset may not occur.
Once the brown-out occurs, the device will remain in
Brown-out Reset until VDD rises above VBOR. The
Power-up Timer (if enabled) will keep the device in
Reset for TPWRT (parameter #33, about 72 ms). If VDD
should fall below VBOR during TPWRT, the Brown-out
Reset process will restart when VDD rises above VBOR
with the Power-up Timer Reset. Unlike previous PIC16
devices, the PWRT is no longer automatically enabled
when the Brown-out Reset circuit is enabled. The
PWRTEN and BOREN configuration bits are
independent of each other.
DS30487D-page 133
PIC16F87/88
15.8
Time-out Sequence
15.9
On power-up, the time-out sequence is as follows: the
PWRT delay starts (if enabled) when a POR occurs.
Then, OST starts counting 1024 oscillator cycles when
PWRT ends (LP, XT, HS). When the OST ends, the
device comes out of Reset.
The Power Control/Status Register, PCON, has two
bits to indicate the type of Reset that last occurred.
Bit 0 is Brown-out Reset Status bit, BOR. Bit BOR is
unknown on a Power-on Reset. It must then be set by
the user and checked on subsequent Resets to see if
bit BOR cleared, indicating a Brown-out Reset
occurred. When the Brown-out Reset is disabled, the
state of the BOR bit is unpredictable.
If MCLR is kept low long enough, all delays will expire.
Bringing MCLR high will begin execution immediately.
This is useful for testing purposes, or to synchronize
more than one PIC16F87/88 device operating in
parallel.
Bit 1 is POR (Power-on Reset Status bit). It is cleared
on a Power-on Reset and unaffected otherwise. The
user must set this bit following a Power-on Reset.
Table 15-3 shows the Reset conditions for the
STATUS, PCON and PC registers, while Table 15-4
shows the Reset conditions for all the registers.

15.10 Interrupts
The PIC16F87/88 has up to 12 sources of interrupt.
The Interrupt Control register (INTCON) records
individual interrupt requests in flag bits. It also has
individual and global interrupt enable bits.
Note:
Individual interrupt flag bits are set
regardless of the status of their
corresponding mask bit or the GIE bit.
A global interrupt enable bit, GIE (INTCON<7>),
enables (if set) all unmasked interrupts, or disables (if
cleared) all interrupts. When bit GIE is enabled and an
interrupt’s flag bit and mask bit are set, the interrupt will
vector immediately. Individual interrupts can be
disabled through their corresponding enable bits in
various registers. Individual interrupt bits are set
regardless of the status of the GIE bit. The GIE bit is
cleared on Reset.
The “return from interrupt” instruction, RETFIE, exits
the interrupt routine, as well as sets the GIE bit which
re-enables interrupts.
DS30487D-page 138
The RB0/INT pin interrupt, the RB port change interrupt
and the TMR0 overflow interrupt flags are contained in
the INTCON register.
The peripheral interrupt flags are contained in the
Special Function Register, PIR1. The corresponding
interrupt enable bits are contained in Special Function
Register, PIE1 and the peripheral interrupt enable bit is
contained in Special Function Register, INTCON.
When an interrupt is serviced, the GIE bit is cleared to
disable any further interrupt, the return address is
pushed onto the stack and the PC is loaded with 0004h.
Once in the Interrupt Service Routine, the source(s) of
the interrupt can be determined by polling the interrupt
flag bits. The interrupt flag bit(s) must be cleared in
software before re-enabling interrupts to avoid
recursive interrupts.
For external interrupt events, such as the INT pin or
PORTB change interrupt, the interrupt latency will be
three or four instruction cycles. The exact latency
depends on when the interrupt event occurs, relative to
the current Q cycle. The latency is the same for one or
two cycle instructions. Individual interrupt flag bits are
set regardless of the status of their corresponding
mask bit, PEIE bit or the GIE bit.

INT INTERRUPT
15.10.3
External interrupt on the RB0/INT pin is edge-triggered,
either rising if bit INTEDG (OPTION_REG<6>) is set,
or falling if the INTEDG bit is clear. When a valid edge
appears on the RB0/INT pin, flag bit, INT0IF
(INTCON<1>), is set. This interrupt can be disabled by
clearing enable bit INT0IE (INTCON<4>). Flag bit
INT0IF must be cleared in software in the Interrupt
Service Routine before re-enabling this interrupt. The
INT interrupt can wake-up the processor from Sleep, if
bit INT0IE was set prior to going into Sleep. The status
of global interrupt enable bit GIE decides whether or
not the processor branches to the interrupt vector,
following wake-up. See Section 15.13 “Power-Down
Mode (Sleep)” for details on Sleep mode.
15.10.2
TMR0 INTERRUPT
An overflow (FFh  00h) in the TMR0 register will set
flag bit TMR0IF (INTCON<2>). The interrupt can be
enabled/disabled by setting/clearing enable bit TMR0IE
(INTCON<5>), see Section 6.0 “Timer0 Module”.
EXAMPLE 15-1:
PORTB INTCON CHANGE
An input change on PORTB<7:4> sets flag bit RBIF
(INTCON<0>). The interrupt can be enabled/disabled
by setting/clearing enable bit RBIE (INTCON<4>), see
Section 3.2 “EECON1 and EECON2 Registers”.
15.11 Context Saving During Interrupts
During an interrupt, only the return PC value is saved on
the stack. Typically, users may wish to save key registers
during an interrupt (i.e., W, STATUS registers).
Since the upper 16 bytes of each bank are common in
the PIC16F87/88 devices, temporary holding registers
W_TEMP, STATUS_TEMP and PCLATH_TEMP
should be placed in here. These 16 locations don’t
require banking and therefore, make it easier for
context save and restore. The same code shown in
Example 15-1 can be used.

15.12 Watchdog Timer (WDT)
A new prescaler has been added to the path between
the internal RC and the multiplexors used to select the
path for the WDT. This prescaler is 16 bits and can be
programmed to divide the internal RC by 32 to 65536,
giving the time base used for the WDT a nominal range
of 1 ms to 2.097s.
For PIC16F87/88 devices, the WDT has been modified
from previous PIC16 devices. The new WDT is code
and functionally backward compatible with previous
PIC16 WDT modules and allows the user to have a
scaler value for the WDT and TMR0 at the same time.
In addition, the WDT time-out value can be extended to
268 seconds, using the prescaler with the postscaler
when PSA is set to ‘1’.
15.12.1
15.12.2
The WDTEN bit is located in Configuration Word 1 and
when this bit is set, the WDT runs continuously.
WDT OSCILLATOR
The SWDTEN bit is in the WDTCON register. When the
WDTEN bit in the Configuration Word 1 register is set,
the SWDTEN bit has no effect. If WDTEN is clear, then
the SWDTEN bit can be used to enable and disable the
WDT. Setting the bit will enable it and clearing the bit
will disable it.
The WDT derives its time base from the 31.25 kHz
INTRC. The value of WDTCON is ‘---0 1000’ on all
Resets. This gives a nominal time base of 16.38 ms,
which is compatible with the time base generated with
previous PIC16 microcontroller versions.
Note:
The PSA and PS<2:0> bits (OPTION_REG register)
have the same function as in previous versions of the
PIC16 family of microcontrollers.
When the OST is invoked, the WDT is held
in Reset because the WDT ripple counter
is used by the OST to perform the oscillator delay count. When the OST count has
expired, the WDT will begin counting (if
enabled).

TWO-SPEED CLOCK START-UP
MODE
Two-Speed Start-up mode minimizes the latency
between oscillator start-up and code execution that
may be selected with the IESO (Internal/External Switchover) bit in Configuration Word 2. This mode is
achieved by initially using the INTRC for code
execution until the primary oscillator is stable.
If this mode is enabled and any of the following conditions exist, the system will begin execution with the
INTRC oscillator. This results in almost immediate
code execution with a minimum of delay.
• POR and after the Power-up Timer has expired (if
PWRTEN = 0);
• or following a wake-up from Sleep;
• or a Reset when running from T1OSC or INTRC
(after a Reset, SCS<1:0> are always set to ‘00’).
Note:
Following any Reset, the IRCF bits are
zeroed and the frequency selection is
forced to 31.25 kHz. The user can modify
the IRCF bits to select a higher internal
oscillator frequency.
Checking the state of the OSTS bit will confirm
whether the primary clock configuration is engaged. If
not, the OSTS bit will remain clear.
When the device is auto-configured in INTRC mode
following a POR or wake-up from Sleep, the rules for
entering other oscillator modes still apply, meaning the
SCS<1:0> bits in OSCCON can be modified before the
OST time-out has occurred. This would allow the
application to wake-up from Sleep, perform a few
instructions using the INTRC as the clock source and
go back to Sleep without waiting for the primary
oscillator to become stable.
Note:
15.12.3.1
1.
2.
3.
If the primary oscillator is configured to be anything
other than XT, LP or HS, then Two-Speed Start-up
mode is disabled because the primary oscillator will not
require any time to become stable after POR, or an exit
from Sleep.
4.
5.
6.
7.
If the IRCF bits of the OSCCON register are configured
to a non-zero value prior to entering Sleep mode, the
system clock frequency will come from the output of
the INTOSC. The IOFS bit in the OSCCON register will
be clear until the INTOSC is stable. This will allow the
user to determine when the internal oscillator can be
used for time critical applications.

FAIL-SAFE OPTION
The Fail-Safe Clock Monitor (FSCM) is designed to
allow the device to continue to operate even in the
event of an oscillator failure.

Failure
Detected
The FSCM function is enabled by setting the FCMEN
bit in Configuration Word 2.
In the event of an oscillator failure, the FSCM will
generate an oscillator fail interrupt and will switch the
system clock over to the internal oscillator. The system
will continue to come from the internal oscillator until
the fail-safe condition is exited. The fail-safe condition
is exited with either a Reset, the execution of a SLEEP
instruction or a write to the OSCCON register.
The frequency of the internal oscillator will depend
upon the value contained in the IRCF bits. Another
clock source can be selected via the IRCF and the
SCS bits of the OSCCON register.
FIGURE 15-11:
The FSCM sample clock is generated by dividing the
INTRC clock by 64. This will allow enough time
between FSCM sample clocks for a system clock edge
to occur.
On the rising edge of the postscaled clock, the
monitoring latch (CM = 0) will be cleared. On a falling
edge of the primary or secondary system clock, the
monitoring latch will be set (CM = 1). In the event that
a falling edge of the postscaled clock occurs and the
monitoring latch is not set, a clock failure has been
detected.
While in Fail-Safe mode, a Reset will exit the fail-safe
condition. If the primary clock source is configured for
a crystal, the OST timer will wait for the 1024 clock
cycles for the OST time-out and the device will
continue running from the internal oscillator until the
OST is complete. A SLEEP instruction, or a write to the
SCS bits (where SCS bits do not = 00), can be
performed to put the device into a low-power mode.
Note:
Two-Speed Start-up mode is automatically
enabled when the fail-safe option is
enabled.
If Reset occurs while in Fail-Safe mode and the primary clock source is EC or RC, then the device will
immediately switch back to EC or RC mode.
15.12.4.1
Fail-Safe in Low-Power Mode
A write to the OSCCON register, or SLEEP instruction,
will end the fail-safe condition. The system clock will
default to the source selected by the SCS bits, which
is either T1OSC, INTRC or none (Sleep mode). However, the FSCM will continue to monitor the system
clock. If the secondary clock fails, the device will
immediately switch to the internal oscillator clock. If
OSFIE is set, an interrupt will be generated.

FSCM and the Watchdog Timer
2.
After a POR (Power-on Reset), the device is
running in Two-Speed Start-up mode. The crystal fails before the OST has expired. If a crystal
fails during the OST period, a fail-safe condition
will not be detected (OSFIF will not get set).
OSTS = 0
SCS = 00
OSFIF = 0
When a clock failure is detected, SCS<1:0> will be
forced to ‘10’ which will reset the WDT (if enabled).
15.12.4.3
POR or Wake From Sleep
The FSCM is designed to detect oscillator failure at any
point after the device has exited Power-on Reset
(POR) or low-power Sleep mode. When the primary
system clock is EC, RC or INTRC modes, monitoring
can begin immediately following these events.
For Oscillator modes involving a crystal or resonator
(HS, LP or XT), the situation is somewhat different.
Since the oscillator may require a start-up time considerably longer than the FSCM sample clock time, a false
clock failure may be detected. To prevent this, the
internal oscillator block is automatically configured as
the system clock and functions until the primary clock
is stable (the OST timer has timed out). This is identical
to Two-Speed Start-up mode. Once the primary clock is
stable, the INTRC returns to its role as the FSCM
source.
Note:
15.12.4.4
1.
The same logic that prevents false oscillator failure interrupts on port or wake from
Sleep, will also prevent the detection of
the oscillator’s failure to start at all following these events. This can be avoided by
monitoring the OSTS bit and using a
timing routine to determine if the oscillator
is taking too long to start. Even so, no
oscillator failure interrupt will be flagged.
Example Fail-Safe Conditions
CONDITIONS:
USER ACTION:
Check the OSTS bit. If it’s clear and the OST
should have expired at this point, then the user
can assume the crystal has failed. The user
should change the SCS bit to cause a clock
switch which will also release the 10-bit ripple
counter for WDT operation (if enabled).
3.
CONDITIONS:
The device is clocked from a crystal during
normal operation and it fails.
OSTS = 0
SCS = 00
OSFIF = 1
USER ACTION:
Clear the OSFIF bit. Configure the SCS bits for
a clock switch and the fail-safe condition will be
cleared. Later, if the user decides to, the crystal
can be retried for operation. If this is done, the
OSTS bit should be monitored to determine if
the crystal operates.
CONDITIONS:
15.13 Power-Down Mode (Sleep)
The device is clocked from a crystal, crystal
operation fails and then Sleep mode is entered.
OSTS = 0
SCS = 00
OSFIF = 1
Power-Down mode is entered by executing a SLEEP
instruction.
USER ACTION:
Sleep mode will exit the fail-safe condition.
Therefore, if the user code did not handle the
detected fail-safe prior to the SLEEP command,
then upon wake-up, the device will try to start
the crystal that failed and a fail-safe condition
will not be detected. Monitoring the OSTS bit will
determine if the crystal is operating. The user
should not enter Sleep mode without handling
the fail-safe condition first.
If enabled, the Watchdog Timer will be cleared but
keeps running, the PD bit (STATUS<3>) is cleared, the
TO (STATUS<4>) bit is set and the oscillator driver is
turned off. The I/O ports maintain the status they had
before the SLEEP instruction was executed (driving
high, low or high-impedance).
For lowest current consumption in this mode, place all
I/O pins at either VDD or VSS, ensure no external circuitry is drawing current from the I/O pin, power-down
the A/D and disable external clocks. Pull all I/O pins
that are high-impedance inputs, high or low externally,
to avoid switching currents caused by floating inputs.
The T0CKI input should also be at VDD or VSS for lowest current consumption. The contribution from on-chip
pull-ups on PORTB should also be considered.
The MCLR pin must be at a logic high level (VIHMC).

1.
2.
3.
External Reset input on MCLR pin.
Watchdog Timer wake-up (if WDT was enabled).
Interrupt from INT pin, RB port change or a
peripheral interrupt.
External MCLR Reset will cause a device Reset. All
other events are considered a continuation of program
execution and cause a “wake-up”. The TO and PD bits
in the STATUS register can be used to determine the
cause of the device Reset. The PD bit, which is set on
power-up, is cleared when Sleep is invoked. The TO bit
is cleared if a WDT time-out occurred and caused
wake-up.

Other peripherals cannot generate interrupts, since
during Sleep, no on-chip clocks are present.
When the SLEEP instruction is being executed, the next
instruction (PC + 1) is prefetched. For the device to
wake-up through an interrupt event, the corresponding
interrupt enable bit must be set (enabled). Wake-up
occurs regardless of the state of the GIE bit. If the GIE
bit is clear (disabled), the device continues execution at
the instruction after the SLEEP instruction. If the GIE bit
is set (enabled), the device executes the instruction
after the SLEEP instruction and then branches to the
interrupt address (0004h). In cases where the execution of the instruction following SLEEP is not desirable,
the user should have a NOP after the SLEEP instruction.
15.13.2
WAKE-UP USING INTERRUPTS
When global interrupts are disabled (GIE cleared) and
any interrupt source has both its interrupt enable bit
and interrupt flag bit set, one of the following will occur:
• If the interrupt occurs before the execution of a
SLEEP instruction, the SLEEP instruction will
complete as a NOP. Therefore, the WDT and WDT
prescaler and postscaler (if enabled) will not be
cleared, the TO bit will not be set and the PD bit
will not be cleared.
• If the interrupt occurs during or after the
execution of a SLEEP instruction, the device will
immediately wake-up from Sleep. The SLEEP
instruction will be completely executed before the
wake-up. Therefore, the WDT and WDT prescaler
and postscaler (if enabled) will be cleared, the TO
bit will be set and the PD bit will be cleared.
Even if the flag bits were checked before executing a
SLEEP instruction, it may be possible for flag bits to
become set before the SLEEP instruction completes. To
determine whether a SLEEP instruction executed, test
the PD bit. If the PD bit is set, the SLEEP instruction
was executed as a NOP.
To ensure that the WDT is cleared, a CLRWDT instruction
should be executed before a SLEEP instruction.

15.14 In-Circuit Debugger
When the DEBUG bit in the Configuration Word is
programmed to a ‘0’, the In-Circuit Debugger functionality is enabled. This function allows simple debugging
functions when used with MPLAB® ICD. When the
microcontroller has this feature enabled, some of the
resources are not available for general use. Table 15-7
shows which features are consumed by the background
debugger.
TABLE 15-7:
For more information on serial programming, please
refer to the “PIC16F87/88 Flash Memory Programming
Specification” (DS39607).
Note:
The Timer1 oscillator shares the T1OSI
and T1OSO pins with the PGD and PGC
pins used for programming and
debugging.
When using the Timer1 oscillator, InCircuit Serial Programming™ (ICSP™)
may not function correctly (high voltage or
low voltage), or the In-Circuit Debugger
(ICD) may not communicate with the
controller. As a result of using either ICSP
or ICD, the Timer1 crystal may be
damaged.

To use the In-Circuit Debugger function of the microcontroller, the design must implement In-Circuit Serial
Programming connections to RA5/MCLR/VPP, VDD,
GND, RB7 and RB6. This will interface to the In-Circuit
Debugger module available from Microchip, or one of
the third party development tool companies.

Four memory locations (2000h-2003h) are designated
as ID locations, where the user can store checksum or
other code identification numbers. These locations are
not accessible during normal execution but are

recommended that only the four Least Significant bits
of the ID location are used.

15.17 In-Circuit Serial Programming
PIC16F87/88 microcontrollers can be serially programmed while in the end application circuit. This is
simply done with two lines for clock and data and three
other lines for power, ground and the programming
voltage (see Figure 15-13 for an example). This allows
customers to manufacture boards with unprogrammed
devices and then program the microcontroller just
before shipping the product. This also allows the most
recent firmware or a custom firmware to be
programmed.

PIC16F87/88
15.18 Low-Voltage ICSP Programming
The LVP bit of the Configuration Word enables LowVoltage ICSP Programming. This mode allows the
microcontroller to be programmed via ICSP using a
VDD source in the operating voltage range. This only
means that VPP does not have to be brought to VIHH,
but can instead be left at the normal operating voltage.
In this mode, the RB3/PGM pin is dedicated to the
programming function and ceases to be a general
purpose I/O pin.
If Low-Voltage Programming mode is not used, the LVP
bit can be programmed to a ‘0’ and RB3/PGM becomes
a digital I/O pin. However, the LVP bit may only be
programmed when Programming mode is entered with
VIHH on MCLR. The LVP bit can only be changed when
using high voltage on MCLR.
It should be noted that once the LVP bit is programmed
to ‘0’, only the High-Voltage Programming mode is
available and only this mode can be used to program
the device.
When using Low-Voltage ICSP, the part must be
supplied at 4.5V to 5.5V if a bulk erase will be executed.
This includes reprogramming of the code-protect bits
from an ON state to an OFF state. For all other cases of
Low-Voltage ICSP, the part may be programmed at the
normal operating voltage. This means calibration values,
unique user IDs or user code can be reprogrammed or
added.
Note 1: The High-Voltage Programming mode is
always available, regardless of the state
of the LVP bit, by applying VIHH to the
MCLR pin.
2: While in Low-Voltage ICSP mode
(LVP = 1), the RB3 pin can no longer be
used as a general purpose I/O pin.
3: When using Low-Voltage ICSP Programming (LVP) and the pull-ups on PORTB
are enabled, bit 3 in the TRISB register
must be cleared to disable the pull-up on
RB3 and ensure the proper operation of
the device.
4: RB3 should not be allowed to float if LVP
is enabled. An external pull-down device
should be used to default the device to
normal operating mode. If RB3 floats
high, the PIC16F87/88 devices will enter
Programming mode.
5: LVP mode is enabled by default on all
devices shipped from Microchip. It can be
disabled by clearing the LVP bit in the
CONFIG1 register.
6: Disabling LVP will provide maximum
compatibility to other PIC16CXXX
devices.
The following LVP steps assume the LVP bit is set in the
Configuration register.

INSTRUCTION SET SUMMARY
The PIC16 instruction set is highly orthogonal and is
comprised of three basic categories:
• Byte-oriented operations
• Bit-oriented operations
• Literal and control operations
Each PIC16 instruction is a 14-bit word divided into an
opcode, which specifies the instruction type and one or
more operands, which further specify the operation of
the instruction. The formats for each of the categories
are presented in Figure 16-1, while the various opcode
fields are summarized in Table 16-1.
Table 16-2 lists the instructions recognized by the
MPASMTM assembler. A complete description of each
instruction is also available in the “PIC® Mid-Range
MCU Family Reference Manual” (DS33023).
For byte-oriented instructions, ‘f’ represents a file
register designator and ‘d’ represents a destination
designator. The file register designator specifies which
file register is to be used by the instruction.
The destination designator specifies where the result of
the operation is to be placed. If ‘d’ is zero, the result is
placed in the W register. If ‘d’ is one, the result is placed
in the file register specified in the instruction.
For bit-oriented instructions, ‘b’ represents a bit field
designator, which selects the bit affected by the operation, while ‘f’ represents the address of the file in which
the bit is located.
For literal and control operations, ‘k’ represents an
eight or eleven-bit constant or literal value
One instruction cycle consists of four oscillator periods.
For an oscillator frequency of 4 MHz, this gives a
normal instruction execution time of 1 s. All instructions are executed within a single instruction cycle,
unless a conditional test is true, or the program counter
is changed as a result of an instruction. When this
occurs, the execution takes two instruction cycles, with
the second cycle executed as a NOP.
Note:
To maintain upward compatibility with
future PIC16F87/88 products, do not use
the OPTION and TRIS instructions.
All instruction examples use the format ‘0xhh’ to represent a hexadecimal number, where ‘h’ signifies a
hexadecimal digit.
For example, a “CLRF PORTB” instruction will read
PORTB, clear all the data bits, then write the result
back to PORTB. This example would have the
unintended result that the condition that sets the RBIF
flag would be cleared.

Read-Modify-Write Operations
Any instruction that specifies a file register as part of
the instruction performs a Read-Modify-Write (RMW)
operation. The register is read, the data is modified and
the result is stored according to either the instruction, or
the destination designator ‘d’. A read operation is
performed on a register even if the instruction writes to
that register.

When an I/O register is modified as a function of itself (e.g., MOVF PORTB, 1), the value used will be that value present
on the pins themselves. For example, if the data latch is ‘1’ for a pin configured as input and is driven low by an external
device, the data will be written back with a ‘0’.
If this instruction is executed on the TMR0 register (and where applicable, d = 1), the prescaler will be cleared if
assigned to the Timer0 module.
If the Program Counter (PC) is modified or a conditional test is true, the instruction requires two cycles. The second
cycle is executed as a NOP.
Additional information on the mid-range instruction set is available in the “PIC® Mid-Range MCU Family
Reference Manual” (DS33023).

the part in Sleep mode, with all I/O pins in high-impedance state and tied to VDD or VSS and all features that add delta
current disabled (such as WDT, Timer1 Oscillator, BOR, etc.).
The supply current is mainly a function of operating voltage, frequency and mode. Other factors, such as I/O pin loading
and switching rate, oscillator type and circuit, internal code execution pattern and temperature, also have an impact on
the current consumption.
The test conditions for all IDD measurements in active operation mode are:
OSC1 = external square wave, from rail-to-rail; all I/O pins tri-stated, pulled to VDD;
MCLR = VDD; WDT enabled/disabled as specified.
For RC oscillator configurations, current through REXT is not included. The current through the resistor can be estimated
by the formula Ir = VDD/2REXT (mA) with REXT in k.

Note 1: In RC oscillator configuration, the OSC1/CLKI pin is a Schmitt Trigger input. It is not recommended that the
PIC16F87/88 be driven with external clock in RC mode.
2: The leakage current on the MCLR pin is strongly dependent on the applied voltage level. The specified levels
represent normal operating conditions. Higher leakage current may be measured at different input voltages.

Note 1: Instruction cycle period (TCY) equals four times the input oscillator time base period. All specified values
are based on characterization data for that particular oscillator type under standard operating conditions
with the device executing code. Exceeding these specified limits may result in an unstable oscillator
operation and/or higher than expected current consumption. All devices are tested to operate at “min.”

can start
These parameters are characterized but not tested.
As a transmitter, the device must provide this internal minimum delay time to bridge the undefined region
(min. 300 ns) of the falling edge of SCL to avoid unintended generation of Start or Stop conditions.
A Fast mode (400 kHz) I2C™ bus device can be used in a Standard mode (100 kHz) I2C bus system, but
the requirement, TSU:DAT 250 ns, must then be met. This will automatically be the case if the device does
not stretch the low period of the SCL signal. If such a device does stretch the low period of the SCL signal,
it must output the next data bit to the SDA line, TR max. + TSU:DAT = 1000 + 250 = 1250 ns (according to the
Standard mode I2C bus specification), before the SCL line is released.

These parameters are characterized but not tested.
Data in “Typ” column is at 5V, 25°C unless otherwise stated. These parameters are for design guidance only and are
not tested.
When A/D is off, it will not consume any current other than minor leakage current. The power-down current specification
includes any such leakage from the A/D module.
VREF current is from RA3 pin or VDD pin, whichever is selected as reference input.
The A/D conversion result never decreases with an increase in the input voltage and has no missing codes.
Maximum allowed impedance for analog voltage source is 10 kThis requires higher acquisition time.

Note the following details of the code protection feature on Microchip devices:
•
Microchip products meet the specification contained in their particular Microchip Data Sheet.
•
Microchip believes that its family of products is one of the most secure families of its kind on the market today, when used in the
intended manner and under normal conditions.
•
There are dishonest and possibly illegal methods used to breach the code protection feature. All of these methods, to our
knowledge, require using the Microchip products in a manner outside the operating specifications contained in Microchip’s Data
Sheets. Most likely, the person doing so is engaged in theft of intellectual property.
•
Microchip is willing to work with the customer who is concerned about the integrity of their code.
•
Neither Microchip nor any other semiconductor manufacturer can guarantee the security of their code. Code protection does not
mean that we are guaranteeing the product as “unbreakable.”
Code protection is constantly evolving. We at Microchip are committed to continuously improving the code protection features of our
products. Attempts to break Microchip’s code protection feature may be a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. If such acts
allow unauthorized access to your software or other copyrighted work, you may have a right to sue for relief under that Act.
Information contained in this publication regarding device
applications and the like is provided only for your convenience
and may be superseded by updates. It is your responsibility to
