Re: Help with RobotC and the PIC platform
The Cortex has 384KB of Flash, the PIC has only 32K.
The ROBOTC VM in "barebones" mode takes about 25KB of flash - This includes stripping out support for Strings, Recursion, Debug Stream, Sound Support, a few other less used features (Datalog, I2C, Long Variables, Float Variables)
The VEX PIC does support a single serial port (which is used for the VEX LCD normally) - The commands are pretty easy to use: http://www.robotc.net/wiki/VEX2_Functions_Serial_Link
(works for PIC as well)
Are you looking to use the VEX PIC as a motor expander (i.e. use a communication like serial to send commands to the PIC to turn on/off motors)?
