Daft Punk Table Replica Graphics Controller using PIC18f2550

Daft Punk Table Replica Graphics Controller This instructable presents a graphics controller card for something like the Daft Punk Table Replica. This should be used in conjunction with a driver board (output expander) like this one, which will drive the high loads presented by the table. This is a work in progress and collaborations on this instructable are welcome. *audio used under creative commons licen ...

PIC18F2550 : Blink LED using XC8 Compiler

Welcome to another chapter of PIC18F programming Tutorial. In this chapter we are going to program a simple 28 pin PIC18F2550 microcontroller using mplabx IDE and XC8 Compiler. The concepts for programming a pic18f2550 microcontroller is still going to be almost same as previous tutorials on pic18f4550 microcontroller, however since pic18f2550 is a different microcontroller in the same pic18F family, so lit ...

USB Indoor/Outdoor Thermometer using PIC18F2550 microcontroller

USB Indoor/Outdoor Thermometer (or, 'My first USB device') This is a simple design that demonstrates the USB peripheral on the PIC 18Fs. There are a bunch of examples for the 18F4550 40 pin chips online, this design demonstrates the smaller 18F2550 28 pin version. The PCB uses surface mount parts, but all components are available in through hole versions. I use surface mount parts because its faster to make ...

LM386 based stereo audio amplifier with digital volume control using PIC18F2550

Due to its simplicity (requires minimum external components) and high availability, LM386 is very popular among hobbyists for use in low-voltage audio amplification applications. Most of the time a potentiometer is used at the input side of LM386 to provide a volume control in the output speaker. The potentiometer does not control the gain of the amplifier itself, but it creates a voltage divider network at ...
