Self-made development board for the 32-bit PIC32MX220F032B Microcontroller

Few months ago Microchip introduced smallest, lowest-cost PIC32 microcontrollers – new PIC32”MX1” and PIC32”MX2” families. PIC32 MX1 and MX2 MCUs include up to 32 KB of Flash and 8 KB of SRAM, two I2S interfaces for audio processing, 10-bit 1 Msps ADC, an 8-bit Parallel Master Port and serial-communications peripherals. MX2 MCUs also have USB 2.0-compliant full-speed module. For the prototyping purposes I m ...

PIC16F877 Development Board v. 1.2

The Development Board v. 1.1 connected to an LCD display. It is well visible (read further, in the description) the row of LEDs used to check the logic state of up to 8 I/O ports or external circuits' pins. Of course, if you own an 8 trace oscilloscope, you can do without it. :-)) On the right bottom the programming cable. Characteristics of the DB12 As I have done with the PIC 16F84 / C84 Evaluation Board, ...

How to build a speed detector for a coilgun project

If you are building a coilgun (or gauss gun) or rail gun, a necessary part of your project will likely be some sort of speed detector. Getting a coilgun to work is rewarding, but you can’t continue the project without a reliable, accurate device to measure speed. A speed or velocity detector allows you to objectively quantify the performance of your gun. Given this information, you will hopefully be able to ...

Towers of Hanoi Final report using pic-microcontroller

Abstract: We have developed a mechatronic system to solve the famous Tower of Hanoi problem as part of a Carnegie Mellon University class. This class seeks solutions which solve the problem in under three minutes for the four disk case, using only the number of disks, source peg, and destination peg as user inputs. Our solution utilizes a spinning base to align pegs with a gripping unit. Raising and lowerin ...

NES Controller iPod Remote

By embedding a PIC microcontroller into an NES controller, it can be converted into a replacement for Apple's iPod remote. (Only 3rd and 4th Generation iPods have this, it is a the small oval port next to the headphone jack). Update (8/26/2011): It's been quite some time since iPods have used this iPod remote connector, but the dock connector (the one used on all iPods except the shuffle, iPad, and iPhone) ...
