Compact PIC18F1320 Microcontroller Board

When I started building Microcontroller projects I built a lot of them using the same PIC microcontroller board. These were based on the PIC18F1320 chip since I bought a lot of them. There are many other chips in the PIC family that would be equally well suited to the projects on this site. Be aware though that, although different PIC chips program similarly, there are differences because of the varying cap ...

LEDactus using PIC18F1320 Microcontroller

The LEDactus is my version of a dry climate niche dweller like a cactus. LEDactus is immobile and attempts to survive by creating a pleasant display. This is of course in the hopes that passersby will be so entranced that they will build the LEDactus' progeny. Initial generations create a simple but pleasing display. Later generations attempt to produce more complex and mesmerizing displays. Finally, in the ...

8×8 LED Array Multiplexed Infinity Mirror using PIC18F1320 microcontroller

8x8 LED Array Multiplexed Infinity Mirror A little bit different than your regular Infinity Mirror. Using a piece of mirrored acrylic for the back mirror, 8 rows of 8 holes are drilled into in a grid pattern. A LED is then placed in each hole and wired up so that i can be multiplexed through a controller. The frame I built for this project is very similar to my 8x8 Infinity Mirror, but instead of having gla ...

PIC sound player (PCM to PWM converter) using PIC18F1320

Description This project makes a PIC microcontroller play audio PCM sounds using PWM modulation! Pulse-code modulation (PCM) is a digital representation of an analog signal where the magnitude of the signal is sampled regularly at uniform intervals, then quantized to a series of symbols in a digital (usually binary) code [1]. Pulse-width modulation (PWM) of a signal or power source involves the modulation o ...
