Prototyping Prototyping involves the creation of an initial model of a product to conduct testing. Whether the product is intended for consumers, government entities, or businesses, it typically starts as a prototype, which may not include all the components or functionalities present in the final market-ready version. Prototypes act as proof of concept, demonstrating that […]
After writing quite a bit of experimental tutorials on PIC16F series of microcontrollers, I thought of moving forward to the enhanced-range family of PIC microcontrollers, the PIC18F, which was introduced by Microchip in late 90s. Although PIC16F series are excellent general purpose microcontrollers, certain limitations have emerged, such as, they have limited program and data
Character lcds can display character of font size 5×8 and 5×10. In 5xn, 5 represents number of coulombs and N represents number of rows. Character lcd’s especially which are controlled by Hitachi HD44780 controller can display 5×8 and 5×10 size font character. Some lcd’s can only display character in 5×8 font. In this project i
Microchip’s PICkit2 and PICkit3 are both In-Circuit Debugger/Programmers, designed for programming and debugging Microchip PIC microcontrollers (and occasionally EEPROMs). The PICkit2 programmer was released back in 2005, and allowed the user to program and debug most of the 8 and 16 bit PIC microcontrollers and dsPIC controllers as well. Its successor, the PICkit3 programmer, was released some years later.
In order to broaden the appeal of its advanced graphics controller ICs in the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) sector, Bridgetek has entered into a three-way collaborative partnership with IoT development experts Zerynth and advanced display solutions provider Riverdi. Through cooperation between these companies’ engineering teams and drawing on their respective skillsets, customers will be
Microchip Introduces New Line of Microcontrollers with Dual Core Functionality: The dsPIC33CH Family
In the world of power, control monitoring is incredibly important for functional as well as safety reasons. And with the demand rising for GUIs in even the most basic products, it comes as no surprise that current microcontrollers are struggling to meet this demand. Microchip has announced its latest family of devices, the dsPIC33CH, that
The 18-pin microcontrollers from PIC16F series have always been my favorite processors. They are small in size (so occupies less area on the circuit board), and are very easy to use. Besides they are capable enough to do most projects that don’t require a large amount of computational capability. I have used PIC16F628A and PIC16F1827
Many people using Arduino or some other development board in their projects, instead of making their own board with microcontroller because they simply don’t know how to design PCB with microcontrollers. What microcontrollers need in order to operate? This time I will be focusing on two most popular 8 bit micro architectures: PIC Microchip .
Spansion has added two more ARM Cortex-M4-based microcontrollers to its portfolio: the FM4 S6E2DH with an integrated graphics display controller and the S6E2CCxxF/MB9BF568F with self-contained voice command control. “These new product families enable customers to design intuitive next generation human machine interface (HMI) systems,” says Spansion’s Dhiraj Handa.The S6E2DH combines an ARM Cortex-M4 core based
Hello Everybody , the goal of this instructables is to learn how to do a simple locker for your room, or anything which need to be safe. I’ve made it on a non-soldering card but there is the PCB if you want to make it ! Here is the list of differents components that we
