Relay Interfacing with PIC Microcontroller

In this project we will interface a Relay with PIC Microcontroller PIC16F877A. Relay is a mechanical device to control high voltage, high current appliances ‘ON’ or ‘OFF’ from lower voltage levels. Relay provides isolation between two voltage levels and it is generally use to control AC appliances. From mechanical to Solid state relays, there are various type of relays are available in electronics. In this ...

RFID Interfacing with PIC Microcontroller

RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. RFID module can read or write small amount of data into a Passive RFID tag, which can be used in identification process in various systems like Attendance system, security system, voting system etc. RFID is very convenient and easy technology. To read the Passive RFID cards and tag, we need a microcontroller with UART hardware. If we select a microcontroller w ...

Generating PWM signals on GPIO pins of PIC Microcontroller

PWM signal generation is a vital tool in every embedded engineers arsenal, they come in very handy for lot of applications like controlling the position of servo motor, switching few power electronic ICs in converters/invertors and even for a simple LED brightness control. In PIC microcontrollers PWM signals can be generated using the Compare, Capture and PWM (CCP) modules by setting the required Registers, ...

Automatic traffic light using PIC16F877A Microcontroller

The objective of this project is to design a traffic light control system. This traffic light controller is used at the intersection that consists of a main road and two side roads. A four way traffic light control system with count down timers is to be designed and constructed. The system is to be developed with the PIC16f877A chip being the microcontroller that is programmed to do the task of controlling. ...

How to make own serial LCD display for PIC12F683 Microcontroller

Alphanumeric LCD generally HD44780 model is very popular display . This LCD use 8 pins for data display and three pin for control and AL together 16 pin . There will be problem on project if we have to connect numbers of components in single micro-controller to make a compact type of device . To reduce number of pin used in this tutorial we are going to make a serial LCD using data shifting technique. In Th ...

PIC Microcontroller based resistor decade box

I was thinking about making a resistor decade box, but I found the rotary switches that are used in these most of the time rather expensive and a bit old fashioned. That's why I decided to use a rotary encoder and select the resistors with a microcontroller. Now I only had to find a way to "make" the resistance. Switching resistors with transistors or mosfets gives a high switch resistance and can't handle ...

Adapter for small size PIC/AVR chip programming

This is a homemade adapter I made for programming SOIC/QFN size microchips that I use in my micro airplanes (http://maxoffsky.com/tech-blog/rc-micro-spitfire-airplane-build-log/). I had trouble connecting the chips any other way so I made my own universal adapter. This could also be used to do In-Circuit programming without removing the chip from the PCB. If you want an adapter to connect and fit any size m ...

Skateboard with PIC microcontroller and LEDs

What do you get when an Electrical Engineer builds a Skateboard from scratch for a 13 year old's Christmas present? You get a skateboard with eight white LEDs (headlights), eight red LEDs (tailights) all controlled via PIC microntroller! And I might add, one very happy 13 year old, well as happy as a 13 year old can be. Following is how I modified a skateboard kit (from ROAROCKIT.COM), added LEDs to the fro ...

PIC Microcontroller project – 24 hour clock and thermometer displayed via 16f690 microcontroller and LCD programmed in C

I got to thinking that an interest in hi-fi can be a bit geek ( in a good way ) so I thought one of my latest geek projects might be of interest to some of you. You could build the project ‘as is’ without learning embedded C programming or you could use the project as a spring board to extra geekiness and weekend fun – I’ll leave that to you Learning embedded C can be hugely rewarding and creative. The tool ...
