MAKING A PICKIT 3 CLONE 1

MAKING A PICKIT 3 CLONE

After using the Microchip tools to program and debug the projects I work on, I wondered about creating my own programming/debugging module that I could put on my own boards – just like Microchip does with their starter kits and such. As I became more interested in that idea, I began to search the web […]

2 NEW FAMILIES FROM MICROCHIP

2 NEW FAMILIES FROM MICROCHIP

Microchip has introduced two new 8-bit MCU families with integrated Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs). You may be thinking that 8-bit processors are unlikely to cut the mustard for many of today’s applications but built-in interconnected CIPs combine to perform functions autonomously, without intervention from the processor. This makes these new 8-bit families suitable for a

Microchip aims at LED car lighting

Microchip has included a new power building block in a microcontroller aimed at LED lighting. Called the PIC16(L)F1769, the family has the first PICs to offer two independent closed-loop channels. The firm has steadily been introducing power control peripheral blocks over the last three years – so-called ‘core independent peripherals (CIPs), including for example its

Embedded System for Automatic Washing Machine using Microchip PIC18F Series Microcontroller schematic

Embedded System for Automatic Washing Machine using Microchip PIC18F Series Microcontroller

The design uses the PIC18F series microcontroller. All the control functionalities of the system are built around this. Upgradeability is the unique feature of this system. Control card hardware and software allows the manufacturer to add or remove the features as per customer requirement and model. Thus once the whole system is designed it is

Re Doing my Design for a circuit to control an invention using a Microchip PIC microcontroller chips.

Re-Doing my Design for a circuit to control an invention using a Microchip PIC microcontroller chips.

In a previous article I described how I designed the circuitry to control functions of the asparagus harvester.  After bread boarding up a test circuit and doing some initial programming I decided a re-do was in order. I found I had a lot of unnecessary redundancy and I also decided to put the air regulation
