How to display 5×8 and 5×10 size font characters on 16×2 lcd with 8-bit microcontrollers

Character lcds can display character of font size 5x8 and 5x10. In 5xn, 5 represents number of coulombs and N represents number of rows. Character lcd's especially which are controlled by Hitachi HD44780 controller can display 5x8 and 5x10 size font character. Some lcd's can only display character in 5x8 font. In this project i am going to teach you how to display characters of font size 5x8 and 5x10 on cha ...

Programmer using PIC16F84 microcontroller

Build a low-cost and very simple serial programmer for a PIC16F84 Microchip Flash Microcontroller. Below picture is my personal writer for F84 chip, it works very nice with Nigel WPicProg V1.20. Introduction I finally found a very nice universal window based software designed to work with any serial programmers for PIC16F84, i.e., WPicProg16 V1.20, written by Nigel Goodwin. Build this programmer before star ...

Adapter for small size PIC/AVR chip programming

This is a homemade adapter I made for programming SOIC/QFN size microchips that I use in my micro airplanes (http://maxoffsky.com/tech-blog/rc-micro-spitfire-airplane-build-log/). I had trouble connecting the chips any other way so I made my own universal adapter. This could also be used to do In-Circuit programming without removing the chip from the PCB. If you want an adapter to connect and fit any size m ...

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 ...

Electronic Code locking system using PIC 16F877 Mircocontroller

Electronic code locking system is extremely useful in protecting our precious possessions and can be installed anywhere with bit of engineering in it. We are widely familiar with the Password based e-locks and might have installed in our house. But we are going for Electronic locks made by any company when you can make one by your own. This project demonstrates you how to make a PIC microcontroller based si ...

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 ...

Kaossilator 2 hack: hands free (part 1/2)

This is my first instructable.... ever. So here it goes. I own a Kaossilator 2 (KO2). It's fun little phrase synthesizer and simple looper. But it has this awkward issue with mic button. When you want to record something from microphone you have to hold down two buttons simultaneously. First the mic button to enable built-in microphone or external input (mic in) and second the loop recording bank button. Th ...

In-Circuit PIC Loader using PIC18F458 microcontroller

This loader connects the PC printer port and works with WinPic800. The loader gets DC supply from application board and provides +12V for high voltage programming mode. We can use it for programming many PIC chips easily. Hardware Schematic The In-circuit serial programming for PIC chips requires only three signals, i.e. a bi-directional DATA line (PGD), a synchronize clock (PGC), and a +12V Flash programmi ...
