PIC12F microcontroller project board

The 12F series of PIC microcontrollers are handy little 8-pin devices designed for small embedded applications that do not require too many I/O resources, and where small size is advantageous. These applications include a wide range of everyday products such as hair dryers, electric toothbrushes, rice cookers, vacuum cleaners, coffee makers, and blenders. Despite their small size, the PIC12F series microcon ...

Standalone BreadBoard Breakout for PIC Microcontrollers

I wanted to make a breadboard breakout for PIC microcontrollers after seeing this arduino breadboard breakout from adafruit. This product is fully standalone and yet has very small footprint so that it can be conveniently plugged into the breadboard. The most amazing part was that it still had 2 rows on each side of the breadboard for the user to jump wires. First I thought of making a breakout board for th ...

Microcontroller based Diode and Bipolar Junction Transistor (BJT) tester

Introduction Most of the digital multimeters these days have built-in features for testing diodes and sometimes transistors. The purpose of this project is to demonstrate a simple way to construct a testing device for diodes and bipolar junction transitors (BJTs) using a microcontroller. The testing algorithm is based on a simple fact that a working PN junction conducts current in only one direction. A PIC1 ...

New Microchip PIC32 Microcontrollers Run at 72MHz

CHANDLER, Ariz., Nov. 5, 2007 - Microchip Technology today announced the new Microchip PIC32 family of MIPS 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs). The Microchip PIC32 is based upon the MIPS32 M4K Core, a high performance core with 32 core registers that are each 32-bits. Microchip has extended the functionality of the M4K core with some unique proprietary enhancements, including an 8-word prefetch queue with branc ...

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 ...

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 ...
