Embedded Linux Controller using pic microcontoller

An In-Circuit Debugger (ICD) is a very powerful and effective tool for real-time debugging of a microcontroller-based system at hardware level. It allows you to run, halt and single step the program while the target microcontroller is embedded in the actual circuit. Once halted, the program variables, Special Function Registers (SFRs), RAM and EEPROM locations can be examined and modified in real-time, thus ...

Introducing the BOLT PIC18F2550 Microcontroller Board using pic microcontoller

The BOLT microcontroller board utilizes the Microchip 18F2550 with built in USB capabilities. Utilizing a 2k 'boot loader' this leaves a great deal of flash RAM for C programming using MPLAB and the C18 compiler. The BOLT board comes in two versions. LITE which has the 18F2550, 8 LEDs for PORTB, four switches and a USB 2.0 port connection to a PC. Operating with a 20 mHz crystal, by use of internal multipli ...

LED-Guided Piano Instruction using pic microcontoller

[Kay Choe] can’t play the piano. Rather, he couldn’t, until he converted his keyboard to include LED-guided instruction. [Kay] is a microbial engineering graduate student, and the last thing a grad student can afford is private music lessons. With $70 in components and a cell phone, however, he may have found a temporary alternative. The build works like a slimmed-down, real-world Guitar Hero, lighting up e ...

Interfacing with The Energy Detective using pic microcontoller

I recently bought The Energy Detective (TED), a pretty inexpensive and friendly way to keep tabs on your whole house’s electricity usage. It’s a lot like having a more featureful version of your utility company’s power meter, sitting on your kitchen counter. It can estimate your utility bill, and tell you how much electricity and money you’re using in real-time. The resolution is pretty good- 10 watts, 1 se ...

Reading Nintendo 64 controller with PIC microcontroller

I have a few old N64 controllers lying around and figured that it would be pretty cool to use them to control other things. In this article I will describe in detail every step I took to achieve this. I've used a PIC microcontroller, but it should not be too hard to port the code to any other architecture. Connector The N64 controller has three connections. From right to left with the round side up: Ground, ...

A pic programmer circuit based on AN589. using pic microcontoller

AN589 is microchip's application note for a parallel port pic programmer circuit which I chose as I wanted something reliable to get up and running quickly. It is really quite a simple circuit and its main objective is to provide ICSP connections to your pic microcontroller. That the PGM signal is not provided - it's not really necessary anyway as you can turn off PGM mode by programming the chip.  For firs ...
