PIC’ing the MAX3100: Adding USB to a PIC Microcontroller Using the MAX3100 UART using pic microcontroller

Abstract: USB has just become easy to implement. This application note eases equipment designers into USB by allowing them to continue to transmit and receive data using the familiar UART frames of the MAX3100 UART. A UART-to-USB converter IC and operating system driver will take care of all of the USB complexity. The application note describes all of the software and hardware you need in order to transmit ...

Use a PIC Microcontroller to Control a Hobby Servo

This instructable describes how to integrate hobby servos (the kind used in RC planes, cars, etc.) into your microcontroller projects. Step 1: How Servos are Different from Regular Motors In a regular DC motor, the amount of torque the motor exerts on the shaft is proportional to the amount of current flowing through the motor. A simple way to control it is by varying the voltage across the motor; more volt ...

Serial communication with Matlab pic-microcontroller

Overview Matlab has a "serial" function that allows it to communicate through a serial port. This project is to establish serial port connection with the PIC microcontroller and demonstrate bidirectional communication between the PIC and a Matlab program. For demonstration purposes, the PIC will send digital potentiometer readings to Matlab as well as receive keystrokes from the Matlab user to light up LEDs ...

Almost No Parts’ 12/24hrs LED Clock using pic microcontroller

A 12hr/24hr LED Clock with display control, uses a microcontroller PIC 16F84A or 16F628A and a few parts. (August 25, 2009) This LED clock may not be the easiest to build but surely it is the one with fewer parts that you can find, for that reason I call it "The ANP LED Clock". (ANP stands for Almost No Parts.) Using the micro controller PIC 16F84A or the 16F628 (same pinout), this clock have more and impro ...

How to Interface I2C External EEPROM 24LC64 to PIC Microcontroller

Microcontrollers are standalone chips since they have memory and processor embedded. The integrated memory of microcontrollers store embedded code and other temporary variables for the execution of program. CircuitsGallery published many microcontroller tutorials and PIC microcontroller projects. Sometimes we may use non-volatile memories (i2c devices) with microcontrollers in case of storing permanent data ...

Microchip PIC Microcontrollers

Implementing ICSP requires connections to a minimum of 5 processor pins: VDD, VPP (also MCLR\), SCLK (on RB6), SDAT (on RB7), and GND. VDD and GND are straightforward. In most applications, it is best to dedicate RB6 and RB& for SCLK and SDAT. This avoids potential complications when these signals are used during programming. Microchip shows a suggested circuit for MCLR\ involving a RC network and diode ...

Infrared Remote Control with Microcontroller

This little project will demonstrate how you can use NEC IR protocol based TV, DVD or VCR remote control to control you home appliances like fan bulb or virtually anything. There are lots of projects out there to accomplish this task but i have to write my own code because of too many requests on IR infrared Remote Control Relay Board with PIC12F675 Microcontroller. There are a number of consumer Infrared p ...

MEASURING HEART RATE USING A PHOTOPLETHYSMOGRAPHIC CARDIOTACHOMETER using pic-microcontroller

ABSTRACT The heart rate is an important measure of health and physical fitness. Medical professionals rely heavily on the rate as a measure of health status and use it to prescribe treatment to individuals. Athletes value the heart rate highly as a tool for regulating frequency and intensity of workouts because the rate provides a quantification of exercise intensity. By looking at the rate, athletes can ta ...
