Serial Port Professional PIC Programmer The PIC programmer project presented here is intended to be used by more experienced developers who already have access to a simple PIC programmer, because the programmer hardware is built around one 16F627(A) or 16F628(A) microcontroller that has to be preprogrammed with firmware. The presented solution uses PC’s [...]

Serial LCD Controller Serial LCD/VFD Controller is a HD44870 based LCD/VFD controller via RS-232. The control command is compatible with Matrix-Orbital’s LCD module. So, you can use any MO friendly software to control this baby such as LCDC.
RS232 Serial Port PIC Programmer PIC Programmer is an essential tool if you wish to learn or build projects with Microchip PIC Micro Processors. This programmer is for those who do not have a Parallel Port on their PC. Programmer may be used with Free Windows Software such as “PIC PROGRAMMER Professional Serial” [...]
Real Time Clock PCF8583 The PCF8583 is a clock/calendar circuit based on a 2048-bit static CMOS RAM organized as 256 words by 8 bits. Addresses and data are transferred serially via the two-line bidirectional I2C-bus. The built-in word address register is incremented automatically after each written or read data byte. Address pin A0 [...]
RCD Programmer I believe that the “JDM Programmer” is cheap and very useful PIC Programmer. However, since “JDM Programmer” cannot control VDD, the algorithm “VPP before VDD” is inapplicable. Programming to the latest device from this reason may go wrong when using CONFIG settings as “Internal oscillator” “MCLR OFF”. These devices are given [...]
PWM Motor Driver with MOSFET H-Bridge and AVR ATmega8 Here is a very simple project of controlling a small DC-motor (taken from an old personal cassette player) with ATmega8. The ATmega8 is having three PWM channels, out of which two are used here. PWM waveforms are fed to MOSFET (RFD3055) H-bridge. Here, direction [...]
Pony Programmer PonyProg is a serial device programmer software with a user friendly GUI framework available for Windows95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP and Intel Linux. Its purpose is reading and writing every serial device. At the moment it supports I²C Bus, Microwire, SPI eeprom, the Atmel AVR and Microchip PIC micro.
PICkit 2 PIC Programmer PICKit 2 Starter Kit is the low cost ICSP programmer for Flash PICs with USB interface introduced recently by Microchip. Only subset of PIC microcontrollers is supported, but the list is including all the recent devices from PIC16 and PIC18 families. The software upgrades are free and Microchip updates [...]
PIC18F4550 Pinguino Development Board Pinguino is an Arduino-like board based on a PIC Microcontroller. The goal of this project is to build an integrated IDE easy to use on LINUX, WINDOWS and MAC OS X. This is a simple 40 pin PIC development board as described in RadCom for November 2009. It is [...]
PIC18F2550 Project Board The new PIC18F2550 Project Board was designed as the development platform for student projects. The board features MCU: PIC18F2550 with external xtal, ADC: one channel 0-2.5V sigma-delta converter, Linear Technology LTC2400/LTC2420, 6-channal 10-bit ADC 0-5V, Display: Two connectors for text LCD or GLCD, USB: onchip USB port with type B [...]
