USC LCD COMPUTER CPU RAM INDICATOR PIC18F2550

For the first version of my Open Source Framework for USB Generic HID devices based on the PIC18F and Windows I made a USB interface for an LCD. Now that I've finished the second version of the library I thought it would be fun to enhance the LCD project into a fully self-contained LCD module which fit in a 5.25 inch drive-bay of a PC case. This project explains how the LCD module can be built together with ...

EMB-2610 Pico-ITX SBC Runs Linux and comes with Touch Panel

Ohio based company, Estone Technology (AKA Habey) has updated the product page for the new EMB-2610 Pico-ITX SBC. The EMB-2610 follows earlier Habey Pico-ITX SBCs such as last year’s i.MX6 UL powered EMB-2200 and i.MX6 based EMB-2230. This time Estone has used a 14nm Intel Atom SoC. Rather than going with Apollo Lake, they used the quad-core, 1.92GHz Atom x5-Z8350 from the Cherry Trail family that tried but ...

INSIDE INTEL’S FIRST PRODUCT: THE 3101 RAM CHIP HELD JUST 64 BITS

Intel's first product was not a processor, but a memory chip: the 31011 RAM chip, released in April 1969. This chip held just 64 bits of data (equivalent to 8 letters or 16 digits) and had the steep price tag of $99.50.2 The chip's capacity was way too small to replace core memory, the dominant storage technology at the time, which stored bits in tiny magnetized ferrite cores. However, the 3101 performed at ...

Extend PIC Microcontroller‘s RAM by without using EMI

Introduction Virtually all PIC microcontrollers have some banking mechanism to extend addressing to additional memory space. But this external data memory is not directly addressable (except in some high versions of PIC18 devices, which include PIC18F8520, PIC18F6620, etc.). In this post we describe easy to implement external memory interface for PIC microcontrollers. Theoretically most of the PIC microcont ...

How to getting started with microcontrollers projects using PIC12F629 microcontroller

Microcontrollers are, basically, a computer in a single chip. It contains memory, processor, I/O ports (I/O = Input/Output) and other periphericals. Can you believe a single chip does contain RAM, ROM, CPU, I/O Ports, timers and other gadgets? It only needs a keyboard and display to be a working computer... ...I almost forgot; It also needs Software.   Microcontrollers are expensive ccompared with CMOS ...
