INTRODUCTION: CIKU is born from the experiences of using Arduino and feedback we gather from SK40C users. Ciku comes with PIC18F4550 pre-programed with Microchip USB HID Bootloader and with this, loading program will only require a USB Mini-B cable, no
Introduction MDD10A stands for Motor Driver Dual Channel 10(Amps). This DRIVER is the dual channel version of MD10C which is designed to drive 2 brushed DC motors with high current up to 10A each continuously. Just like MD10C, MDD10A also supports
MiFare is a contactless smart card system which is being trademark by NXP Semiconductors. With MiFare reader/writer, useful information can be either read from or written into MiFare cards which will then be used in applications like electronic wallet, access control, corporate ID cards, transportation and so on.
By using SKM53 GPS module, we can actually view our current UTC time, date, latitude, longitude and so on. In further application, it can used to interface with our smartphone, microcontroller such as Arduino or PIC, and so forth to know our own location. Meanwhile, when we use it, we need to expose it to the sky to capture the stronger signal. As an example, if we in the home, we need to put the GPS module near the window to get the signal. Otherwise, we will not receive the signal by GPS antenna if we inside a closed window room.
The FlexiForce single element force sensor acts as a force sensing resistor in an electrical circuit. When the force sensor is unloaded, its resistance is very high. When a force is applied to the sensor, this resistance decreases. The resistance can be read by connecting a multimeter to the outer two pins, then applying a force to the sensing area. In this tutorial, you will going to learn on how to display the voltage level on 2×8 LCD and light up the LED based on the voltage level as the different force exerted to the Flexiforce Sensors(A201).
In this tutorial, I will explain some sample code to drive the two DC motors in sign-magnitude PWM mode, locked-antiphase PWM mode and simplified serial mode. Thus, all of the sample code that given in this tutorial will only drive two DC motors in clockwise by pressing SW1 and in counter-clockwise by pressing SW2.
In this tutorial, you are going to learn how to compile the source codes (by using Cytron Technologies DIY Project ) with MPLAB v8.63 and Hi-Tech compiler v9.80.
