A digital thermometer or talk I2C to your atmel microcontroller using pic microcontroller

Abstract: The Atmega8 microcontroller from Atmel has plenty of digital and analog input/output lines. It is the ideal device to develop any kind of measurement equipment. In this article we see how to interconnect the microcontroller to a linux PC over a physical RS232 interface without the extra MAX232 chip. Introduction A pre-requisite for this article is that you have the GCC AVR programming environment ...

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 ...

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 ...
