Breakout board for 18-pin PIC16F series microcontrollers

The 18-pin microcontrollers from PIC16F series have always been my favorite processors. They are small in size (so occupies less area on the circuit board), and are very easy to use. Besides they are capable enough to do most projects that don't require a large amount of computational capability. I have used PIC16F628A and PIC16F1827 in most of my tutorials and projects posted on http://www.Embedded-Lab.com ...

Microcontroller Tutorial 4/5: Creating a Microcontroller Circuit Board

We are now in the fourth part of the microcontroller tutorial. We have a microcontroller circuit diagram ready. It’s time to make a circuit board. I love this part. This is the “magical” step that takes the idea we started with and turns it into something real. But let’s recap. So far we have learned: Part 1: What is a microcontroller? Part 2: How to choose your microcontroller? Part 3: How to design a circ ...

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 ...

TD-USB-02 interface with touchpad sensor board and WinAmp interface using PIC18F2550

TD-USB-02 interface with touchpad sensor board and WinAmp interface. This is an example USB project showing how to interface a touchpad sensor (the AD7142ACPZ) with a standard XP/Vista computer. The TD-USB-02 board with a PIC18F2550 communicates with: the PC: USB 2.0 through a mini-B connector. the touchpad sensor board: SPI over 8-wire flatcable. PC WinAmp application controls (start/stop, next/previous tr ...

Compact PIC18F1320 Microcontroller Board

When I started building Microcontroller projects I built a lot of them using the same PIC microcontroller board. These were based on the PIC18F1320 chip since I bought a lot of them. There are many other chips in the PIC family that would be equally well suited to the projects on this site. Be aware though that, although different PIC chips program similarly, there are differences because of the varying cap ...
