Having fun with HC08 using pic microcontroller

Here is a nice little project for a rainy weekend, all this can be accomplished over a weekend and for under USD 15. This page has gone through several rewrites, mainly to get rid of my 'rant mode' writing, but it seems I just need to write it out of myself. Feel free to skip the first part. For references purposes and convenience I've put all the useful links here at the top of the page: Schematics SDCC - ...

Basics of LED dot matrix display. Part 1. Theory using pic microcontoller

LED dot matrices are very popular means of displaying information as it allows both static and animated text and images. Perhaps, you have encountered them at gas stations displaying the gas prices, or in the public places and alongside highways, displaying advertisements on large dot matrix panels. In this experiment, we will discuss about the basic structure of a monochrome (single color) LED dot matrix a ...

LCD interface with Microcontroller PIC: Beginner’s guide using pic microcontoller

How to interface LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) display module to PIC microcontroller? LCD is a passive component, that is it does not make any light but just modifies the light passing through it for alphanumeric displays. LCD is exclusively manufactured to be used with microcontrollers, which means that it cannot be triggered by usual IC circuits. This embedded program shows how to connect PIC to LCD displa ...

THE SIMPLE ROVERBOT

Construction Concepts and Goals Construct a vehicle powered only by a standard 9 Volt battery that can avoid obstacles on the left and on the right. The vehicles will have two buttons mounted on the front (left and right). For example, if the vehicle hits the right wall, then the vehicle will stop, back up, turn left, and then continue the course. Vehicle Parts Common Components Breadboard, wires, 10kW resi ...

Mini GSM localizer without GPS using pic microcontoller

It’s no the first time that we present a localizer without GPS. We remake the old device with the cheaper SimCom module SIM900. In the previous post we present the GSM section and now we can present the complete localizator. Introduction This system allows for localization without directly using GPS technology; we are able to locate the desired object fairly precisely by using database availability together ...

Details of PIC ICSP and how to use it for pic microcontrollers.

PIC ICSP gives you a convenient way of programming PIC Micros without removing the chip from the development or production board. Note: ICSP stands for In Circuit Serial Programming. All you need is a programmer that provides the ICSP connector (usually a six pin molex/dupont connector) which you plug into your target board. For example PicKit2/Pickit3 uses the ICSP connections shown in the diagrams below. ...

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 ...
