DIY Digital Clock with Temperature Display using PIC Controller

One of the most enjoyable part of being an electronics person is creating your own gadgets and using them in daily life. In this article, we are building one of those with the help of SoloPCB design tools, a digital desk clock with temperature display feature. The brain of the circuit is a Microchip PIC18F252 microcontroller. It acquires precise time information from DS1307 real time clock via I2C interface ...

Miniature Real-Time Controller using PIC16F84

Introduction The F84 MRTC was my second design of a miniature real-time controller. This version uses PIC16F84 running with a low power X-tal 32,768Hz. The scheduler for 6-channel output was saved in EEPROM. No terminal for serial downloading of the scheduler. It's suitable for fixed scheduler job. Two AA size battery provides +3V backup for clock operation when main power has failed. Time setting at 19:00 ...

PIC 18F4550 Timer And Interrupt Example Video Project

Welcome back everybody! This video covers multitasking via timers and interrupts with the PIC 18F4550. A few notes on this video: -To keep the pace of the video going I added fast forwarding more than in the previous videos. Please let me know in the comments if this was helpful or better compared to the previous videos with less fast forwarding. -I recorded a substantial part of this video, especially the ...

Digital & Binary clock with thermometer & hygrometer

Here we have a clock. It’s not “another clock”. It has digital and binary output. It also has a thermometer and a hygrometer. It’s not “another thermo-hygrometer”. It display’s absolutely humidity (gr/m3) also. Schematic   MCU I build it around Microchip PIC16F917, with internal Oscillator at 4MHz. I also build a serial port programmer, so I can programming it on-line, using the DL4YHF WinPic. Clock I ...

PIC based WWVB clock

Introduction There are many DIY versions of WWVB clock designs available on the web. Commercial “atomic” clocks are inexpensive and widely available, but I wanted to try my hand at designing one to gain insight into WWVB reception and to learn a little about programming a PIC microcontroller. My version is not the simplest available, but it works well and I think it offers a few unique features. WWVB Clock ...

Long Period Astable Timer using PIC12F629

Description This software functions as a long period astable mutivibrator.  The mark and space period can be set from 1 second up to a maximum 65535 seconds (18h12m15s). Using the internal 4Mhz RC oscillator delays with an accuracy of 99% or better can be achieved  The code also implements an edge triggered reset and an active low hold function.  The reset edge can be configured for rising or falling edge.  ...

Almost No Parts’ 12/24hrs LED Clock using pic microcontroller

A 12hr/24hr LED Clock with display control, uses a microcontroller PIC 16F84A or 16F628A and a few parts. (August 25, 2009) This LED clock may not be the easiest to build but surely it is the one with fewer parts that you can find, for that reason I call it "The ANP LED Clock". (ANP stands for Almost No Parts.) Using the micro controller PIC 16F84A or the 16F628 (same pinout), this clock have more and impro ...

Rubidium Atomic Clock

Introduction In the 1970s I worked for a while for the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) at a site in Winfrith, Dorset. Amongst a lot of other interesting work, I used a gamma ray density gauge that amounted to a caesium-137 source, in its castle and collimator, the target (various), a sodium iodide detector (from memory), a photomultiplier and a series of counters using dekatrons. Having spent hours takin ...
