PIC Based Speed Controller using PIC16C54

Introduction Real world applications often call for controlling small to medium sized DC motors from digital circuits. For smaller motors it is usually economically infeasible to buy a commercial speed controller as the cost of the controller will far outstrip the cost of the motor itself. The PIC's high speed, low cost, and low power requirements lend it to being an inexpensive "smart chip" controller for ...

Medallion: Circle LED Animation PIC16F628A

This project uses the Simple LED Animation Kit (SLAK post or page) with the LEDs arranged in a circle around the PIC16F628A. I decided to do this project after picking up some red SMD LEDs at HSC in Santa Clara, CA, last week. Although the only difference from the basic SLAK is the board design, I find that this layout to be have the potential to be more useful. It could easily be a medallion on a necklace. ...

Candle Simulator using PIC12F675 microcontroller

Description The aim of this project is to create a credible simulation of the light of a candle. Candle light is usually warm and waves slowly with random oscillations caused by the air flowing in the surrounding environment. Using a random number generator to modulate a light emiter like a LED or a light bulb it is possible to create a very credible effect. Design I tested both LEDs and small incandescent ...
