Pulse Initialization Circuit (or sometimes, Process Initialization Circuit), a circuit designed to introduce a circuit pulse (or process) to an Nv net in certain circumstances. PICs are sometimes used as part of a startup circuit to initialize an Nv net to assure it is supporting one and only one process at any given time. The first startup circuit designs were manual, and so required human intervention and some degree of timing, to initialize the given Nv net. More modern circuits use various automatic startup circuits to initialize the Nv net without assistance at power-up.
