Interfacing of PIC16F84A with DS1307 (RTC) code and Proteus simulation

This post provides the code for interfacing DS1307 RTC with PIC16F84A microcontroller. This DS1307 RTC has i2c based interface and PIC16F84A doesn't have any built in i2c modules, so software i2c module is created in the code. This code is written in C language using MPLAB with HI-TECH C compiler. You can download this code from the 'Downloads' section at the bottom of this page. It is assumed that you know ...

PC Interfacing a GameBoy Camera using PIC18F4620 microcontroller

PC Interfacing a GameBoy Camera   Here's another past project of mine from a couple of years ago. At that time I was looking for a low-res camera for simple robotics image processing, and all I had experience with was PIC (12, 16, and 18) microcontrollers. So I didn't really get to work on the images real time (not enough RAM or speed, and I could not find any suitable SRAM around at that time). I thin ...

10 tricks for interfacing to the PIC16C508

Most of the ideas in this chapter can be found on the pages of this website, but just in case you want to go over the capabilities of the '508A, we have brought them together. Quite often when you are programming, the first thing you will run out of is output lines. Many projects need lots of drive lines and if you need more than about 8, you should go to another micro-controller. Don't expect an 8-pin chip ...

Interfacing VFD with PIC Microcontroller

Vacuum fluorescent display can be a good alternative to a Liquid-crystal displays in some applications. They have a number of advantages over LCD like extended temperature range and excellent contrast in high brightness environment. The main disadvantage is higher power consumption making them less attractive in battery operated devices. In this post I’ll show you how you can use this type of display with m ...

PIC32MX: Interfacing to a Secure Digital (SD) Flash Card

Original Assignment Do not erase this section! Your assignment is to create code that will allow the PIC32 to read and write data to a FAT32 SD card. The SD card should be able to be read by a PC after data has been written on it by the PIC32. Create functions so that it is easy to read, write and initialize the SD card. Use the example projects in the "Microchip Solutions/USB Device - Mass Storage - SD car ...

Real Time Clock (RTC) Interfacing PIC18F

Introduction to RTC: Real time clock also referred as RTC is an important device or integrated circuit which will keep the track of current time. RTC is mainly used in computers, mainframes servers and embedded applications (mobile phone, tablets, organizers, PDA etc). The main function of the RTC is to keep the track of time of the device even though it is in off or turned off state. The best example is yo ...
