Servo tester with PIC12F675
This is a simple servo tester which will comprehensively test the capabilities of almost any modern servo. It has two pushbuttons, CENTRE and SWEEP and a potentiometer which works as follows: - CENTRE Does exactly that, centers the servo, afterwards the potentiometer determines position. - SWEEP Sweeps the servo back and forth at a rate...
IR Encoder/Decoder with PIC12C508
The receiver chip uses a Panasonic 4602 38KHz receiver and that's it for external components. It has the serial input (GP3) , two RC hobby servo outputs (GP0/GP1) and three digital outputs (GP2,4,5). Here is the code for the receiver chip. It is a bit of a specialty in that the digital outputs are actually "momentary contact" type outputs...
ASCII Programmer PIC16F84
The idea behind this project is to provide some means of loading a program into a PIC that will then be able to program other PICs in a more conventional way. How do you program a PIC to be a programming device without a programmer, and why would you want to build a programmer if you already have one that can program the PIC to be a programmer....
15 x 7 LED display with PIC16F628
This project is provided as a "prototyping project" as no PC board has been produced. The photographs show the project built on a matrix board using surface-mount components and very fine wire. The final design will require a double-sided board with plate-through holes, especially for the matrix of LEDs, but for the moment you can refer to the...
Robot Beacon with PIC12C508A
We hold the "first rights" to the presentation of this approach and the best part is: "It's FREE!" The PIC12C508A is one of the most amazing devices but because it does not come in a low-cost re-programmable form, it has never been presented in a "designers article." It is a one-time programmable device (OTP) and once it is programmed, it...

Upon opening the box, the light sensor sends a signal to the microcontroller which, in turn, activates the ISD1000A to play...
PWM Fan Controller schematic
The heart of the PWM Fan Controller is a PIC 12F675 microcontroller. This microcontroller is reading the analog output of a LM35 temperature sensor using a ADC (analog to digital converter) . The resulting digital value is converted to a temperature and a fan is powered proportionally to how hot the sensor is. The sensor is mounted against the...
1 button Security locking circuit
The Button Code is a system that allows a single button to act as a keypad. The user enters a 4 digit code into the system using button taps. The button can be placed where the public can access it since like a keypad there are many combinations to keep guessers from activation the system. When the correct code is entered a form-C relay is...
Gear clock using PIC 16f628A

The microcontroller is interfaced to two buttons and one motor. The interface is very simple, it...
Clock using analogue multimeters ( PIC16F628A )
The Multimeter Clock consists of three multimeters, the first meter displays hours, the second displays minutes and the last displays seconds. A 16F628A PIC microcontroller keeps track of time and outputs a calculated current to each meter to display the current time. The user enters the time by pressing three time adjust buttons. The first...
Fish Tank Lights and Temperature Detector
When the tank is cleaned the fish are removed and placed in a small amount of the tank water. The problem is that fish don’t like rapid temperature fluctuations. I guess a simple in tank or stick on thermometer would have done the trick but what is the fun in that? If the unit just did temperature monitoring it would have been such a waste of...
Digital Volt and Amp Meter
The PIC Microchip Processor must be programmed before it will function as a Volt & Amp meter. There are many internet sites and PIC programmers that you can use. I used a Microchip MPLAB ICD 2 during the project. You might need to made changes to the circuit to accommodate a different type of programmer, do read the programmers instructions...
Power LED mood Lamp
A good way to mount the circuit board is to use a hot glue gun to "mold" the circuit underneath the lamp housing. There is plenty of space there for your board. At the next photos you can see the circuit board mounted on the small 31cm IKEA Mylonit Lamp. It's clear that current changes as colors are changing. As you can see the max current...
NiCd/NiMH Battery Charger
Here we use the PIC16711. Rechargeable battery capacity is rated in mAH (milliampere-hours). The total capacity of a battery is defined as "C", that is it can supply C mA for 1 hour, or 2C for 30 minutes etc. Charge rates can vary from trickle charges to keep the battery 'topped up' of 3.3% of C to 5% of C, a slow current charge of 10% of C to...

The circuit uses the pulse dialing system to interrupt the line connection...
IR 4 channels remote control with PIC12F629
The circuit above illustrates using the IR receiver module along with a PIC12F629 microcontroller to decode 5 individual IR remote control keys so the circuit will only toggle one of the 4 outputs when a particular key is pressed. The 5th key is assigned to the master clear function that toggles off the 4 outputs. Works with most...

Production of automatic re-set timer for crime prevention buzzer that uses PIC
The crime prevention bell device that I produced about 20 years ago works still in the active service. It worked many times to make the thief not operate well and not go into it. The bell keeps ringing generally though the bell rings as for the crime prevention buzzer when the thief was about to enter. With this, after the fixed time, it is stoppe
PIC Programming how to get started
Several years ago a colleague suggested that I should be using PICs for my hobby, which then was amateur television. I spent many hours developing and experimenting with video mixers, faders and effects (FX) units, and all this was done sing analogue and digital circuits (TTL gates) that took quite a while to get the desired results. I did not kno
PIC Traffic Lights
All that remains now is for the code to be `, compiled and converted to a HEX file that the PIC can understand. This is achieved easily with the PIC compiler that comes with the PICBASIC package. The PIC is programmed with any of the parallel or serial port programmers that are available free of charge from the NET. If you arrange the LEDs as the
PIC 16F88 Microcontroller PIC based Tengu
Tengu derives its name from a mythicalJapanese creature known for getting intomischief. Our Tengu, however is more earthly in nature. It responds to voice and sounds and takes on different facial features depending on the intensity of the sound. If no sound is heard for some time, it changes from a happy face to a sad face and then goes to sleep. G
PIC 16F88 Digital Thermometer Light Meter and resistance ohm meter
My original idea for this project was simply to try and interface the WINTEK WD-C2401P lcd panel to the pic (see my previous post). I figured it would be fun to add a couple of ADC readings to display something useful on the lcd. PORTB on the PIC is used as the data port for the LCD. The Enable, Register Select and Reset are tied to PORTA. Once th
