  • Simple single button power on/off

    Here's a little test program that I used recently for a project of mine. I thought it may interest some users.

    It puts the microcontroller to sleep with a button press, then wakes it up with another press of the same button.

    ' Place the microcontroller in a sleep state with one press of a button
    ' And wake it up with another press of the same button.
    ' One end of the switch should be connected to ground, with a pull-up resistor connected to PORTB.0 (INT0)
    ' Button bounce can be reduced with a capacitor across the switch.
    ' Or a more elaborate debounce mechanism can be implemented inside the interrupt handler, however, I'll leave that up to you.
    ' Any external peripherals should be powered via a mosfet, so they can be switched off before the PICmicro goes to sleep
    ' Thus reducing power to a bare minimum
        Include "Amicus18.inc"                  ' Configure the compiler to use the Amicus18 board (18F25K20 at 64MHz)
        On_Hardware_Interrupt GoTo ISR_Handler
    ' State saving variables
        Dim TRISA_StateSave As Byte
        Dim TRISB_StateSave As Byte
        Dim TRISC_StateSave As Byte
        Dim PORTA_StateSave As Byte
        Dim PORTB_StateSave As Byte
        Dim PORTC_StateSave As Byte
        GoTo Main                               ' Jump to the main routine
    ' Interrupt service handler
        Context Save
        If INTCONbits_INT0IF = 1 Then           ' Was it an INT0 that triggered the interrupt?               
            ' Yes. So switch peripherals off here before going to sleep
            TRISA_StateSave = TRISA             ' \
            TRISB_StateSave = TRISB             ' | Save the state of TRISA, TRISB and TRISC

            INTCONbits_INT0IF = 0               ' Clear the INT0 flag
            Sleep                               ' Go to sleep. Wake up with another INT0 trigger
