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 ...

Microcontroller based Diode and Bipolar Junction Transistor (BJT) tester

Introduction Most of the digital multimeters these days have built-in features for testing diodes and sometimes transistors. The purpose of this project is to demonstrate a simple way to construct a testing device for diodes and bipolar junction transitors (BJTs) using a microcontroller. The testing algorithm is based on a simple fact that a working PN junction conducts current in only one direction. A PIC1 ...
