PIC Evaluation/Development Board Implementation using pic-microcontroller

Abstract The objective of this project is to produce a PIC evaluation/development board to be used by future ECPE senior design project teams.  Many project implementations call for some sort of microcontroller unit in the final product, and this need can often be met by a simple PIC microcontroller.  However, the development of a PIC solution is often beyond the expertise and available time of the design t ...

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 ...

Mini AV Test Box using pic microcontoller

The notion of building a monitor/speaker AV tester came up in the forums a few weeks ago. Someone requested to see a project devoted to testing VGA displays and Speakers. The project I made many years ago: The VGA Test Box can be used to test displays, however it is large, clunky and not friendly for mobility concerns. To answer these concerns, the challenge was put forward to fit a full fledged AV tester i ...

Development system for PIC and AVR microcontrollers

After testing many systems development for PIC and AVR microcontrollers, none satisfy me. So I created this system with breadboard that has satisfied me. Step 1: More space free In this development system, I put two protoboards turned 180 degrees from each other. The space that is left to just enough space to insert a 40-pin microcontroller. But I'm planning to create a version with movables protoboards  to ...

An Arduino me-too-alike for PIC16F873A

We’ve all done it – looked sideways with not a little envy at a range of add-ons for a power tool, and wished that they were available for the one we bought. There is no ’standard’ footprint for a PIC Micro-controller development/experimental board. Vendors have chosen to provide their own ‘take’ in each case, and who can blame them, selling ‘add-ons’ for a proprietary board increases revenue streams. Given ...

dsPIC30F2012 breadboard

Bernard introduces us to the dsPIC microcontroller. He shows us his Arduino like project board for a dsPIC and gives advice on software development tools. This article was submitted by Bernard Klinc as part of the “Hobby parts for articles” program. Bernard received a graphic LCD module for this great article. You may remember Bernard from his previous Accelerometer Based Mouse article and video. This thing ...

Mini PIC Dev Board using PIC18F452

For one reason or another I really like to use breadboards for building prototype designs. The breadboard offers superior flexibility in that you can change a single electrical connection at any time, as long as you have a long enough wire. One of the draw backs of the breadboard is that you tend to build the same circuits over and over again. Since I like to use the PIC microcontroller in my projects I fig ...

Compact PIC18F1320 Microcontroller Board

When I started building Microcontroller projects I built a lot of them using the same PIC microcontroller board. These were based on the PIC18F1320 chip since I bought a lot of them. There are many other chips in the PIC family that would be equally well suited to the projects on this site. Be aware though that, although different PIC chips program similarly, there are differences because of the varying cap ...

PIC LICK-1 using PIC16F84 Microcontroller

This module is so simple, I'm surprised it has not been thought of before. You can fit a PIC16F84A or PIC16F628 and it becomes a "buffered PIC chip." Look at the circuit diagram first to see what the module is doing. It's buffering 5 of the input lines with a 1k resistor and buffering 8 output with a driver (actually a sinking) transistor. If you fit a PIC16F628 chip, you can use the RC oscillator inside th ...
