PIC 18F4550 Motor Controller Video Project

In this video, we cover how to breadboard and write the firmware for a motor controller (controlling a servo, 2 DC motors, and a stepper) with the PIC 18F4550. A few notes on this video: -I recorded most of the video during the evening of July 4th here in the U.S., there were fireworks going off in the background during most of the video. Also, there was a thunder storm at the beginning. I hope this does no ...
