PIC Microcontroller Video Tutorial Series

PIC is a family of modified Harvard architecture microcontrollers made by Microchip Technology, derived from the PIC1650[1][2][3] originally developed by General Instrument's Microelectronics Division. The name PIC initially referred to "Peripheral Interface Controller".[4][5] PICs are popular with both industrial developers and hobbyists alike due to their low cost, wide availability, large user base, exte ...

PIC RC Motor Controller (and example lego robot)

Step 1: Parts List General: RC transmitter/receiver set with at least 3 channels. As is this code only works with stacked PWM signals. I can only say for sure that it will work with traxxas receivers. With modification it could work with any PWM timing, and I am working on making it work with synchronous PWM like the newer Futaba systems use, that is the pulses all begin at the same moment. It will not work ...

PIC USB HID (Human Interface Device) Interfacing

For long time, UART is the only and best way to interface with PC. It is easy to adapt and handle. Though some devices (like: GSM modem etc.) have UART on themselves, but for interfacing with PC, there is only one thing now and that is USB Introduction The purpose of this article is to explain how to interface a PIC microcontroller to a PC via the USB port. Although the concepts are universal, the examples ...

Automatic Power Factor Controller using Microcontroller

The thirst for new sources of energy is unquenchable, but we seldom realize that we are wasting a part of the electrical energy every day due to the lagging power factor in the inductive loads we use. Hence there is an urgent need to avoid this wastage of energy. Before getting into the details of Power factor correction, lets just brush our knowledge about the term “power factor”. In simple words power fac ...

Temperature controlled fan using PIC 16F877A

You might have come across several applications where we need to control a specific device based on analog parameter. This Embedded system works in a similar concept where we are about to control the speed of a DC motor using based on the external temperature. The rise in temperature will result in increase in speed of the motor and vice versa. These type of Temperature controlled fan systems can generally ...
