MPPT Based Charge Controller Using Pic Microcontroller

MPPT Based Charge Controller Using Pic Microcontroller; MPPT (maximum power point tracking) based charge controller using pic microcontroller is a controller that could be used for charging the batteries after tracking maximum power from solar panel. As we know, the demand of energy is increasing day by day as well as the nonrenewable energy resources such as hydro, coal and oil are also depleting day by da ...

MMC/SD Card raw data read with PIC16F887 microcontroller

Interfacing MMC/SD card with PIC16F887 This small example shows how to read SD card raw data (bytes, sectors ...). SD card raw data means that there is no use of system files like FAT16 or FAT32. Serial monitor is used to display the data after reading it and here the UART protocol is used. the link below shows a small PIC16F887 MCU UART example: UART Example for PIC16F887 microcontroller using CCS PIC C co ...

Read text files from FAT16 SD card with PIC16F887

Interfacing PIC16F887 with FAT16 SD card After reading raw data (bytes and sectors) from SD card, now I'm going to use FAT16 file system to read and print text file located in 2 GB SD card. Read SD card raw data topic: MMC/SD Card raw data read with PIC16F887 microcontroller UART protocol is used to display the content of the text file. For this project, I used MMC/SD card driver for CCS C compiler which ca ...

Interfacing PIC16F84A with SD card

This topic shows a simple interfacing of 2 GB micro SD card with PIC16F84A microcontroller. I used the PIC16F84A to read the SD card raw data which doesn't require a microcontroller with high RAM or ROM. In this interfacing I used software SPI because the PIC16F84A doesn't have a built-in hardware SPI module. In this example there is no need for file systems (FAT16, FAT32 ...) because we're dealing with raw ...

GSM module Interfacing with PIC Microcontroller – Make and Receive Calls

GSM Interfacing with PIC Microcontroller PIC16F877A - Make and Receive Calls GSM modules are fascinating to use especially when our project requires remote access. These modules could make all actions that our normal mobile phone could do, like making/receiving a call, sending/receiving a SMS, connecting to internet using GPRS etc. You can also connect a normal microphone and speaker to this module and conv ...

SUN TRACKER’S WINGS

The giant (by radio control standards) servos above are shown adjacent to a Nokia 3310 mobile phone to give an idea of the scale.  The arms are 12cm long - perfect for lifting a bank of solar panels (wing). Our local Model Aerodrome in Seaside Road, Eastbourne, supplied these beauties, taking the trouble to source one unit from afar - not the kind of thing you are asked for every day.  Thanks to Dave and St ...

Incredible DIY iPhone Macro

After taking apart dozens of disposable cameras over the years, I found myself with a lot of lenses of varying sizes and nothing to use them for... until now! By making a simple carriage that would hold the lens and attach to my iPhone via rubber band, I was able to make a virtually free macro lens that takes amazingly close shots in practically no time at all.  In this Instructable, I will build one with 2 ...

Introduction to Microchip PIC Assembler Language – Part 1

Learning the assembler language is one of the essential skills that still required in the embedded system, although the major drawback using the assembler language is; its required more learning curve time compared to the higher level language but once you acquainted with one type of microcontroller family such as 8-bit 8 pins Microchip PIC 12F683 then coding with assembly language to other type of PIC micr ...

Make your own motion sensor alarm with SMS feature using PIC18F2550

MikroEleketronika demonstrates how to build a simple home alarm system that has the capability of sending SMS to a predefined cell phone number when intrusion is detected. This project is based on StartUSB for PIC board, a small development board for PIC18F2550, which is preprogrammed with an USB bootloder so that no additional programmer is required to load the firmware. The SMS portion uses a SmartGM862 B ...

DTMF Phone Dialer using PIC16F690

The company I work for recently upgraded their phone system. They got a new IP phone system that can supposedly do everything - the new phones have big LCD screens with fancy menus, lots of different modes, PC connection for remote control of the phone, e-mailing voice messages, and tons of other features. All that said, there was a critical piece missing from the picture - a way to dial a stored number whi ...
