Project Ryu Lagger – Guitar Effect

Do you remember BOSS Slow Gear pedal? If your a guitarist you most likely do or at least you’ve heard of it. It was a great pedal sold from 1979 to 1982 and it was made in Japan. The pedal would cut the attack of your notes giving a swelling sound. It god famous for making the guitar sound kinda like a violin. I always liked that effect and i even made a clone a few years back. It is based on a 2SK30 JFET a ...

How to write embedded C project in Mikro C to build .HEX file

Are you an electronics hobbyist? I will help you to write your first embedded C program. ‘Mikro C pro’ is one of the popular embedded C software for PIC microcontroller. It is more user-friendly and has a set of inbuilt functions and commands. After compiling a microcontroller program in C using ‘Mikro C pro’,you will be able to generate .HEX files from the program codes.What is .HEX file? .HEX file is a ma ...

Hello World Project With PIC Microcontroller – Part II

Hello Friends, Welcome back. In the last tutorial we started working with MPLab and HI-TECH C Compiler and written our first C program to blink LED. After compiling the program we got the HEX file. Now, in this tutorial we will see how to transfer(burn) the hex file to our Microcontroller chip and then power it up to actually blink the LED. We will use eXtreme Burner – PIC , which is a easy to use GUI progr ...

Open Automaton Project

The objective is to use readily available "off-the-shelf" low-cost consumer components where possible, and to design electronic subsystems where such components are either not readily available or are too expensive. In terms of affordability, the overall goal is to design a robot that can be made for around the price of a PC (US$1,500 to $2,000 is the target, but the actual cost of building a robot can vary ...

How to build a speed detector for a coilgun project

If you are building a coilgun (or gauss gun) or rail gun, a necessary part of your project will likely be some sort of speed detector. Getting a coilgun to work is rewarding, but you can’t continue the project without a reliable, accurate device to measure speed. A speed or velocity detector allows you to objectively quantify the performance of your gun. Given this information, you will hopefully be able to ...

Electronic Heart (Flashing LEDs) – Mother’s Day Project

Mother's Day was approaching, and I am getting my 8 year old son started with electronics. So why not combine the two? In the next few pages we'll show you the project we did - a blinking heart with several effects, all driven by a microcontroller. Taught my son not only about how to make mommy happy (she LOVED the present), but also about project planning, prototyping, soldering, programming, and testing. ...

LED Scrolling Display Project Working With Circuit Diagram

We normally use a simple static LED display screen to convey a message. Earlier, when we want to display large data, we used to change message for every few instances. Now scrolling displays are more preferred to static. By using a pre programmed controller, we can make LED display in scrolling way. We can also make LED to adoptable by using PC controller based system. Simple Outdoor LED Message Moving or S ...

Simple mass storage for your microcontroller project

Do you want gigabytes of storage for your microcontroller? Would you like a simple way to tranfer files from your PC to your picaxe or arduino or other micro project? This little projects demonstrates the uDrive that can be set up as an extra drive on a PC. Copy files to and from the SD card, then put it in the uDrive and talk to it with 5 simple commands: Read - Read a file off the drive Write - Write a fi ...

A Beginner’s data logger project using PIC12F683 microcontroller

It is a very simple data logger project based on PIC12F683 microcontroller. The microcontroller reads temperature values from a temperature sensor on a regular interval basis and stores them into its internal EEPROM memory. The recorded temperatures can be later transferred to a PC through serial interface. I originally published this project on electronics-lab.com last summer. I thought this could be a ver ...
