The Saltwater etch process using PIC16F54 microcontroller

The Saltwater etch process This is a one-off process to produce one printed circuit board by removing unwanted copper by electrolysis in a saltwater solution. I shall illustrate the process by etching and building a board for 18-pin PIC (for the PC16F54, but any 18 pin PIC will fit in it) in the figure. It has to plug into my breadboard and accept the programming signals from my PIC programmer (just go to h ...

PIC – First Project

Programming in PIC microcontroller can be done by using assembly language or by using Embedded C because of the ease of writing code.We have used done the programming through Embedded C language.For programming any microcontroller we need a IDE or Intregrated Developement Enviroment. In case of PIC microcontroller the official IDE is MPLAB  Further several third parties develop C language compilers for PICs ...

Steam Turret Tank R/C PIC Servo Controller

A Microchip PIC based servo controller offering many of the capabilities of digital servos for under $9! The controllers capture the r/c receiver output, optionally manipulate the samples, then regenerate new servo control signals. As such, they greatly enhance what is possible with cheap servos. They were created for my Steam Turret Tank Instructable. Here is a list of some of the things possible: Expand n ...

Gas Cooker & Water Purifier Using Free Energy

I originally wrote this for my final year project in 2005. I won't provide a parts list as certain technology has moved on such as the ease of Arduino for the electronics and solar cells are a lot better and readily available now. Also I was a student at the time and so my budget was extremely limited but even today I am happy with my design. Many parts of the world suffer from lack of clean water to drink ...

Simple Button Keypad – Microcontroller

Simple method for creating a custom button keypad that doesn't require separate hardware.  Just your microcontroller buttons a few resistors. What we have here is 9 buttons and 6 signal lines (3 inputs, 3 outputs).  The basic setup is in a grid pattern where the three input lines come down as columns (PIN0, PIN1, and PIN2),  and the three output lines come across as rows (PIN3, PIN4, and PIN5). Each button ...
