A video game with software generated video signal !

Introduction I have made the game pong using a pic 16F84 running @ 12MHz. The game Pong was the world's first video game in the early 70's, this is a modern version of it, made with a little bit less hardware than the original version. In my version, the video signal is generated in software. The only hardware used for the video generation is two resistors forming a 2-bit DA converter. Usually the video sig ...

Free programming software for various of the MicroChip PIC series of micro-controllers by Nigel Goodwin.

Following the name change to WinPicProg I've now bought the domain name winpicprog.co.uk so all future updates will be under this address, with links from my old pages. I'm happy to try and help with any problems people have, either via email or (preferably) via the new PHPBB support forum, where other users will be able to take advantage of the answers. I've added an FAQ page to the support forum, and the ...

PIC12F675 software UART (bit banging) code and Proteus simulation

This post provides the software UART (Bit Banging) code for PIC12F675 microcontroller (e-g to connect PIC controller with PC using serial adapter). As we know, PIC12F675 microcontroller doesn't have built in UART module, so we can create UART functionality in it's software. This post provides the details of how to program software UART functionality in PIC12F675. This code is written in C language using MPL ...

Howto generate color video signals in software – Introduction

This document describes how to generate composite color video signals in software using an SX microcontroller. First the document describes the video signal and after that how to do it in software. There is also a zippped PDF-version (1.54MB) of this document, that is better if you wnat to print it to paper. (Note: The PDF-file also contains the games pong and tetris with source, so you might not want to pr ...

How to generate video signals in software using PIC

Background During the Christmas holidays 1997-1998, I started on a small project, trying to generate a video signal with a PIC16C84. I had seen some video clock generating video signals in software, and thought it was a quite interesting idea, and wanted to take it a step further. I didn't know much about video signals back then, I basically just had seen how a single scan-line works. But during the spring ...
