PIC PROGRAMMER MkV using PIC12F629

PIC Programmer MkV is designed to get you into PIC Programming for just a few dollars. It uses just 12 components. Most of them will be in your "junk-box" and the PC board is a small piece of matrix board. It's the cheapest way to get started. As well as PIC PROGRAMMER MkV you will need these 4 things: 1. A desk-top computer with DB-9 serial port. (This programmer will not work on a lap-top computer and may ...

“Fluffy” – A Scenix (and PIC) Programmer

I was trying to think of a suitable name for this project, and after literally seconds of careful deliberation, I gave up and decided to call it Fluffy. Sorry. Anyway, Fluffy is a SX programmer for people who havealready experimented with PIC chips, and want to try out the Scenix SX family. I built Fluffy because I wanted to experiment with the SX's, but didn't want to spend $300 or so bucks on the official ...

Getting started with PIC Microcontroller Programming

What is a PIC Microcontroller? PIC (Peripheral Interface Controller) is a microcontroller family developed by the Microchip Technology. It plays important role in embedded systems.Low cost, serial programming capability, reprogramming of the flash memory, availability of free developing tools, large user database, etc. are some of the PIC microcontroller features which make it a best microcontroller. How to ...

Enhanced 5/2-day Central Heating Programmer with serial computer interface using PIC16F628A

Overview This project has come about from my desire to control my home heating from work.  As I have a VPN between work and home a straightforward relay controlled from a PC would seem the easiest solution.  However I also wanted a control unit that I could operate in the house without resorting to the computer.  For example, I get up late and the heating is off, I just want to hit a button and turn it on.  ...

Pic 16F676 ICSP programing socket for the PICkit 2 programer

I'm trying to build this dual DC motor module for my robot project And I did not have the space for placing an ICSP pin header on the PCB. So i quickly mocked up this design. Step 1: Geting the parts Well to build the ICSP socket with header for the PICkit 2. We need 1part experiment board I used the one with raster 2.54mm holes where every 3 are connected in rows of solder islands. I had one 18pin DIL IC s ...

PIC 16F917 Gyroscope interface

In this post we will study the ADC ( Analog-to-Digital ) Module of the Microcontroller PIC16F917 . We will study a real circuit of PIC16F917 interfacing to a semiconductor Gyroscope. The Gyroscope is a motion sensor that senses tilt in a certain direction . The used sensor is a yaw rate sensor ( free sample from Analog Devices . The Gyroscope ADXRS613 was sent in an evaluation package EVAL-ADXRS613 ) . Yaw ...

Hello World Project With PIC Microcontroller – Part II

Hello Friends, Welcome back. In the last tutorial we started working with MPLab and HI-TECH C Compiler and written our first C program to blink LED. After compiling the program we got the HEX file. Now, in this tutorial we will see how to transfer(burn) the hex file to our Microcontroller chip and then power it up to actually blink the LED. We will use eXtreme Burner – PIC , which is a easy to use GUI progr ...
