Interfacing SD card with PIC12F1822 (Raw data read)

With the tiny microcontroller PIC12F1822 we can read raw data (sectors) stored in the SD card. The SD card can work in SPI mode which makes our interfacing more better since the PIC12F1822 MCU has a built-in SPI module (MSSP module). This post shows how to interface the SD card with the PIC12F1822 microcontroller in order to read the raw data stored in it (the SD card). SD card raw data means that there is ...

Push Button as Input and Led as Output with Pic Microcontroller

This is a simple tutorial/project on how to interface a transistor (2n2222), led and push button with Pic microcontroller. In the project i am going to switch on and off(blink) an led with the help of a push button. Since transistors are used at outputs we can drive heavy loads with the same circuit. Pic16f877 microcontroller is used in the project. Port-B of Pic16f877 is used as output port. Port-B of pic1 ...

IR Tracking Turret with PIC and C

This is a good learning project that is fun to build - I got a lot out of making it. I think this has been done quite a bit already, but I did not find a straightforward way of doing this with PICs. When I finally got it working, I thought I'd share it. It might be useful for someone that wants to learn or apply I2C, Interrupts and Callbacks, PWM, or Servo Control. Basic Functionality Detects and tracks an ...

IO Controller with serial port CLI using PIC16F627A

This code runs on a PIC 16F627A or 628A (and A.F.A.I.K 627/628 parts).  It uses the serial USART on the PIC to communicate with a PC. Through this a simple CLI (Command Line Interface) is implemented that allows commands to be sent to the PIC to control output lines and read and return the status of inputs on the PIC The serial interface is configured to operate at 9600bps, 8bits, No Parity, 1 stop bit. Por ...

MTM Scientific, Inc… PIC Project for CATV Tuner

The CATV Tuner sold by MTM Scientific, Inc can be used for wideband audio and video reception, as described on our other project pages such as the FM Wideband Receiver and Radio Telescope Project. A common requirement in all these projects is the need to program the CATV tuner with a serial bit stream to establish operating frequency. We have previously described a method which uses a computer's parallel po ...
