Introduction to 16-Bit PIC Microcontroller

The 16-Bit PIC controllers represents Mid-Range group of PIC microcontroller. The Mid-Range group of PIC controller is quite similar in Architecture and Programming, with the Baseline group devices. The difference between Baseline and Mid-Range group is, Mid-Range group of PIC controllers comes with additional features and programming and storage space.
Mid-Range PIC group is an extension of Baseline architecture adding support of more memory, timers, interrupts and interface with peripherals like PWM, I2C, SPI and LCD controllers. The Mid-Range developer can use his knowledge for development in Baseline development.
Mid-Range architecture supports 14-bit instruction words.
