100MHz frequency counter with PIC16F628A – LCD Display

This project shows how to build a very simple yet very useful tool that every DIY enthusiast should have in his lab: a 100MHz+ frequency counter. The schematic is fairly simple and straightforward and uses a PIC16F628A microcontroller for measuring frequency and a high speed comparator for signal amplification and conditioning. The microcontroller uses its internal 4MHz oscillator for the CPU clock. Timer1 ...

Serial LCD Library using PIC16C84

Here is a library to interface your PIC code to an LCD that is controlled via a serial line. One such LCD is available from Scott Edwards Electronics. There are many others, and the code shown here can easily be adpated to other LCD displays by changing some defines. The following files are referenced below, but for simplicity I've listed them here for download: LCDlib.tar.gz is my entire LCD library and as ...

LCD Serial Terminal using PIC16F84

LCD Serial Terminal Introduction: In the 1980s a serial terminal was a big thing with a picture tube and keyboard. You used it to communicate with a computer by RS-232 cable or with a modem. In this century, we still sometimes have need for a serial terminal, and we’ll typically use a personal computer running a terminal program (Hyperterminal, bundled withWindows, is a terminal program). This project is a ...

Interfacing LCD Modules with PIC Microcontrollers.

A large number of embedded project require some type of user interface. This includes displaying numerical, textual and graphical data to user. For very simple numerical display we can use 7 segment displays. If the requirement is little more than that, like displaying some alphanumeric text, we can use LCD Modules. They are cheap enough to be used in low cost projects. They come in various sizes for differ ...

Serial LCDs you can make your own using PIC12F683

HD44780 based LCD displays are very popular for embedded projects because they are cheap, easy to interface, can display characters, consume power lot less than seven-segment displays, and most of the present day compilers have in-built library routines for them. However, the only disadvantage is that they require at least 6 I/O pins of microcontroller. Well, you may ask, isn’t that less than what seven-seg ...

Voltmeter Ammeter Kit – Blue Backlight LCD

Voltmeter Ammeter is a great kit to measure voltage and current at the same time. It measures 0-70V or 0-500V voltage with 100mV resolution and current from 0 to 10A. It's a perfect addition to any power supply, battery chargers and other electronic projects where voltage and current must be monitored. Kit uses PIC16F876A microcontroller with built-in ADC (Analog to Digital Converter) to sample voltage with ...
