USocket – USB controlled Socket with PIC18F4550

Introduction The idea of this project is to control (switch off/on) two power sockets with a computer by using its USB port. I’ve chosen USB in first place because I wanted to experiment with the PIC18F4550 microchip’s microcontroller, and secondly because the power supplied by this port (500mA) is enough to activate a relay without any additional power supply. The firmware is based in SIXCA USBDAQ which is ...
