Example of Processing an Interrupt on a PIC16F1xxx MCU

Processing an Interrupt from Timer2

The animation below shows the code to setup and process an interrupt from Timer2 on the PIC16F1xxx enhanced mid-range MCU. The control icons at the bottom of the animation allow for the display to be paused and single stepped.

Further explanation of PIC16F1xxx interrupts can be found in the Interrupts page.

The Timer2/4/6 page provides the details on the setup and operation of Timer2.
