PIC Microcontroller is one of the popular device among student and hobbyist. Microchip Technology is a giant for embedded system. Every year, they produce different product for different application range from beginner training kit to advanced application such as medical instrumentation and robotic. A lot of people wonder which device should start with when exploring PIC MCU? So in this tutorial, i will guide you the software and hardware features of 2 PIC families :Mid-range 8 bit MCU(PIC 16 series) and Advanced 8 bits MCU(PIC18 series)
Hi there, in this tutorial i would like compare 3 ultrasonic sensors that available in Cytron Technologies ! Ultrasonic sensors is a transducer that convert ultrasound to electrical signal.So what are the differences of HC-SR04 ,LV-MaxSonar-EZ and HRLV-MaxSonar-Ez ? Let check it out 😀 !
In this tutorial, users will be guided to interface the DS3231 RTC module with both PIC and Arduino. The platform to be used for the PIC interface is the SK40C board with PIC16F887 while the platform to be used for Arduino interface is the BBFUINO board, which is Arduino compatible.
LED dot-matrix display is a good medium of displaying information in terms of text or image. More interestingly, texts or images displayed can be made animated instead static in place only. Some related applications are displaying advertisements, time, price of product and scoring.
