I have used the TIC with a 16C84 in a design. I wrote the support code
for the 1 wire protocol one night over a six pack. So it's not a major
time investment in software. But it is nice to have a scope available so
you can see if there is a hardware (i.e. pull-up resistor) or software
i.e. timing or TRIS register problem.
I wrote the routine in C (CCS compiler) -- I know people on this list
think that is a sin, but it simplified the job in my opinion. I can
send you the C (and the compiler generated assembler) if you would like.
