How to Program a PIC Microcontroller to Build a Project

The recent trends in the advanced technology are helpful in developing most advanced electronic gadgets. Most of  these electronic devices are developed using microcontrollers. The microcontroller is an electronic component, which is programmed to perform various control operations. There are various kinds of microcontrollers available, such as 8051, AVR, ARM, and PIC microcontrollers, etc., which are progr ...

The cheapest ESP8266 programmer!

Hi folks, now I'll teach you how to make your programmer to the ESP-01 and ESP-201, (perhaps serve with other models) using an Arduino UNO, a few cables and optionally a button and a slide switch, in my case I use them because I had available, with this programmer able to upload the Arduino sketches and any other firmware (AT, LUA, Espruino, etc). Okay, let's start, first do the following circuit. Optionall ...

First Servomotor Control Program

In our first program , we will simply sweep the servomotor from CCW to CW and then sweep back. The program will be kept simple as to demonstrate the priniciples of controlling a servo with a the PIC Basic language. The schematic can be seen in figure 2 (below). The variable pw controls the pulsewidth, and is started at 100 (extreme left, -45 degrees). The program sends the pulse out to the servo, and then i ...

El Cheapo, the cheap way to program a PIC microcontroller

If you ever wanted to do a project involving microcontrollers, the first thing you need is a microcontroller, and programmer. Many commercial PIC programmers exist. These programmers cost anywhere from 25 to 250 dollars depending on how many different PICs are supported and how greedy the manufacturer is. In my other article, I gave a great review for the Microchip PIC32 starter kit, which includes the chip ...

WORLD’S SIMPLEST PROGRAM using PIC12F629

This is where you start with programming. Build the PIC Programmer MkV and build the World's Simplest circuit on a PC board for a PIC12F629 chip, LED and resistor. When the World's Simplest Program is "burnt" into the chip, the LED will flash. This is not a "normal" program as the Watch-Dog Timer has been turned ON and after 18mS it resets the chip to "org 0X00" and the program executes the 8 instructions a ...
