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 ...

Breakout board for 18-pin PIC16F series microcontrollers

The 18-pin microcontrollers from PIC16F series have always been my favorite processors. They are small in size (so occupies less area on the circuit board), and are very easy to use. Besides they are capable enough to do most projects that don't require a large amount of computational capability. I have used PIC16F628A and PIC16F1827 in most of my tutorials and projects posted on http://www.Embedded-Lab.com ...

Ponyprog Circuit for AVR & PIC16F84

Comments: All resistors are 1/4W.The circuit is powered by 9...15V DC or AC. When In Circuit Programming (ISP) connectors are used, is possible the programmer to be powered from target’s power source. Diodes D2 and D6 protect the regulator LM7805, when target’s power is used. ' XTAL JUMP ' is used to cut XTAL when the AVR has internal RC oscillator enabled. 'FAMILY JUMP' is used to select which ATMEL’s fami ...

Microcontroller Tutorial 4/5: Creating a Microcontroller Circuit Board

We are now in the fourth part of the microcontroller tutorial. We have a microcontroller circuit diagram ready. It’s time to make a circuit board. I love this part. This is the “magical” step that takes the idea we started with and turns it into something real. But let’s recap. So far we have learned: Part 1: What is a microcontroller? Part 2: How to choose your microcontroller? Part 3: How to design a circ ...

PIC microcontroller Beginner’s guide: Basic connection circuit

What is a pic microcontroller? The PIC microcontroller is a low cost ‘computers on a chip’ manufactured by Microchip. They allow electronic designers and hobbyists impart intelligence and logic to a single chip for special purpose applications and products. The PIC microcontroller programming is done using the popular software ‘Mikro C’. This powerful yet easy to program into a 40-pin package is upwards com ...

Basic PIC circuit is not working

I have just begun in the world of micro-controllers, and the first micro-controller. I chose to work with was the PIC from Microchip. The PIC I am using is the PIC16F877A. I am using MPLAP IDE and HI-TECH C. I am trying to make an extremely simple program that turns on an LED. This is the code I am using: #include<htc.h> #define _XTAL_FREQ 8000000 __CONFIG(UNPROTECT & PWRTDIS & WDTDIS & HS ...

Learning Board for PIC12F683 Microchip

Introduction Electronics is my hobby. When I was in college I had some experience with microcontrollers; I did few projects with Atmel's AT89C51. Recently, I have grown interest on PIC microcontrollers, and I thought I should start with 8-pin microchips. I picked PIC12F683 microchip. This microcontroller fascinated me a lot because I wanted to see what we can do with an 8-pin microcontroller (out of which 2 ...

Ultrasonic Position System

The ultrasonic position system uses ultrasonic transmitters/receivers to triangulate position of the robots used in GE423. Each of three transmitters uses a distinct frequencies: 23 kHz, 31 kHz, and 40 kHz. The 2812 DSP is used to measure signal timing and calculate position based on these values. The design of the electronics, as well as discussion of the software development is presented below. The electr ...
