PICMAN prototyping board using PIC18LF4553

For a long time now I've been wanting to make my own microcontroller-based prototyping board. My original motivation was the unjustified high costs for even the simplest boards (a basic Arduino for $30 - why???) and the challenge of designing something that anyone can make at home within a few hours, with parts that can be cheaply obtained on eBay. Eventually, I came up with the PICMAN. It is: Based on Micr ...

nRF24L01+ 2.4 GHz Wireless Connectivity with the tinyK20 Board

Alternatively, a USB CDC or UART (Serial) connection can be used. I’m not going much into details how to use the nRF24L01+, RNet and all the other components. Check the links at the end of this article for more details. Summary With this project I have the tinyK20 board enabled with 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity for less than $3 using the Nordic Semiconductor nRF24L01+ transceiver. I plan to use this in one ...

MikroElektronika’s “Ready for PIC” board talks to “Processing” using PIC16F887

“Ready for PIC“ is one of MikroElektronika‘s compact prototyping boards for 28 and 40 pin PIC microcontrollers. The board comes with PIC16F887 microcontroller which is preprogrammed with an UART bootloader firmware and thus eliminates the need of an external programmer. The on-board USB-UART module allows the serial data transfer between the PIC and a PC using an USB cable. It has also got a reasonable size ...
