UART Communication with Nuvoton N76E003 Microcontroller – Serial Communication

UART stands for Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter and it is a useful hardware feature in any microcontroller unit. A microcontroller needs to receive data, process it, and send it to the other devices. There are different types of communication protocols available in the microcontroller, however, UART is the most used one among the other communication protocols like SPI and I2C. If someone needs t ...

How to work with External (Hardware) Interrupts of PIC Microcontroller (PIC18F4550)

Interrupts are special events that require immediate attention. They cause the processor to cease the running task to serve a special task for which the interrupt event had occurred. After the special task is over, the processor resumes performing the original task. The processor can also serve these events by polling method. But polling is an inefficient technique as compared to interrupts. In the polling ...

How to use inbuilt EEPROM of PIC18F4550 Microcontroller- (Part 18/25)

The EEPROM (ELECTRICALLY ERASABLE PROGRAMMABLE READ ONLY MEMORY) is a very useful memory which can be used for storing data. The data storing and retrieving from any EEPROM memory is very simple compared to other kind of memories. As the name suggest the memory is electrically programmable and hence the data will be sustained in the memory until it is electrically erased or reprogrammed. There are lots of E ...
