PIC 16F917 Gyroscope interface

In this post we will study the ADC ( Analog-to-Digital ) Module of the Microcontroller PIC16F917 . We will study a real circuit of PIC16F917 interfacing to a semiconductor Gyroscope. The Gyroscope is a motion sensor that senses tilt in a certain direction . The used sensor is a yaw rate sensor ( free sample from Analog Devices . The Gyroscope ADXRS613 was sent in an evaluation package EVAL-ADXRS613 ) . Yaw ...

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 ...

Building the Inchworm ICD2 PIC Programmer / Debugger

This instructable is an illustrated walk through building an ICD2 clone called the Inchworm. It's a straight forward kit that lets you build an MPLAB ICD2 compatible Programmer and Debugger. There are lots of Programmers out there but very few include a debugger, (A debugger lets you single step through your program and set watch lists (see your variables) and much more). The full manual including schematic ...

In circuit serial programmer for PIC16F87X

Intro Here you can find all resources you need to build your own in-circuit serial PIC16F87X programmer. After experimenting with the PIC16F84, time had come to move on to more powerful devices, such as the PIC16F871. These devices offer a low voltage progamming (LVP) mode. This basically means that it is possible to modify the contents of the program memory without applying a high voltage (12 V) to the dev ...

Schaer+ Programmer using PIC12F629 microcontroller

Description Schaer is a generic programmer circuit capable of uploading and downloading firmware to/from several electronic devices like microcontrollers and eeproms. This and other programmers came to my attention when I was working in CAMBADA, the robotic soccer team from the University of Aveiro, and since all other programmers available there were too expensive for me to buy or build, I decided to build ...

Programmable watch with four character display using PIC16F628A microcontroller

Programmable watch with four character display You'll be the talk of the town when you wear this obnoxious, oversized, completely impractical wristwatch. Display your favourite foul language, song lyrics, prime numbers, etc. Inspired by the Microreader kit, I decided to make a giant watch using similar sixteen segment displays. Twelve hours later, I came out of my masochistic fugue and stopped trying to rou ...
