PWM Signal on Nuvoton N76E003 Microcontroller – LED Dimming using Duty Cycle Control

Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) is a commonly used technique in microcontrollers to produce a continuous pulse signal with a defined frequency and duty cycle. In short, PWM is about changing the width of a pulse while the frequency is constant. A PWM signal is mostly used in controlling a servo motor or brightness of an LED. Also, since microcontrollers can only provide Logic 1 (High) or Logic 0 (Low) on its o ...

USB-PD STAND-ALONE ADAPTER BOARD FROM OXPLOT

Modern devices are quickly switching to USB-C power adapters, gradually fading out USB-A, and USB-B adapters. USB’s Power Delivery (USB-PD) protocol enables the supplies to be  flexible enough to handle charging (or powering) devices ranging from mobile phones to laptops. There are many high quality 90-100 Watt USB-C power adapters available. But unfortunately, there are many devices tha ...

How to work with inbuilt Analog Comparators of PIC18F4550- (Part 12/25)

Analog comparator is an electronic device which compares the two voltage signals and provides TTL logic output to indicate the larger signal. The analog comparator is used in various applications where two inputs signals need to be compared. IR sensor is a very common example where analog comparator is used. PIC18F4550 has two in-built comparators which can be used in eight different modes. T ...

How to Glow an LED using PWM with PIC Microcontroller- (Part 20/25)

Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) is a technique in which the width of a pulse is modulated keeping the time period of the wave constant. One cycle has a fixed time period called ‘Period’ and a varying on time called ‘Duty cycle’. The entire wave can have two voltages levels either logic 0 or logic 1. The PWM wave is very useful in the digital systems, since this can be used to generate different voltage values ...

Push Button as Input and Led as Output with Pic Microcontroller

This is a simple tutorial/project on how to interface a transistor (2n2222), led and push button with Pic microcontroller. In the project i am going to switch on and off(blink) an led with the help of a push button. Since transistors are used at outputs we can drive heavy loads with the same circuit. Pic16f877 microcontroller is used in the project. Port-B of Pic16f877 is used as output port. Port-B of pic1 ...
