Programmer - Wisp648

  • It is an in-circuit programmer(ISP).
  • The programmer is connected to a few pins of the target PICmicro, which is programmed while it remains in the circuit. 
  • Support most of the PICmicro family.

Project 12 - Build a 10-Key Serial Keypad

  • This project used PIC16C620 to control the keypad.
  • This project doesn't used the conventional scan rows & columns method.
  • It just test the input port to see if a button has been pressed.

Project 11 - Room Thermostat

  • To explore character LCD displays and 2-wire bus (I2C) devices with a Microchip PIC microcontroller.
  • The project was a digital room thermostat with multiple setpoints at different times of the day.

Project 10 - Personal G-Force Meter

  • The main application of the accelerometer is either for sensing tilt or sensing acceleration.
  • This application G-Force meter for car used will be made to see how many G's being pull ed while driving.
  • The purpose of this project is to build a device that measures acceleration/tilt on one axis (backward/fordward).

Project 9 - PIC16C84 serial programmer

  • Programmer and reader of PIC16C84 microprocessor.
  • Programmer is directly connected to serial port of PC and no external power supply is necessary.
  • This programmer is dedicated for PIC16C84 and for PIC16F84.

Project 8 - A PIC ultrasonic range finding

  • The PIC sonar range finder works by transmitting a short pulse of sound at a frequency inaudible to the ear.
  • This frequency can be classified as ultrasonic sound or ultrasound.
  • Afterwards the microcontroller listens for an echo.

Project 7 - A PIC Serial LCD project

  • This project shows you how to create a serial LCD module that you can drive from any serial RS232 interface.
  • It uses a pure ASCII command set so you can control it easily from a terminal program such as Hyperterminal.
  • There are no odd command sequences such as 0xef to define a command.
  • You can type all commands at the terminal interface making it very easy to use.
  • It's also easy to test it out manually before driving it with a program.
  • Once you have decided what you want to do a microcontroller can generate the same commands or you can send them from a PC program.

Tutorial 7 - PIC 12F675 Microcontroller Tutorial

  • A tutorial which shows you how to program and use it with a series of projects.
  • To use the tutorial files you need to have a PIC programmer with an ICSP output connector and the components shown in each tutorial.
  • The 12F675 microcontroller is packaged in an 8 pin chip.
