This tutorial covers the interfacing of the Cytron MP3 Shield with the Arduino Due. The Arduino Due has a very huge program space and RAM, so it will give you a lot of opportunities to expand on your creations with the MP3 shield.
MiFare is a contactess smart cards system and is being trademark by NXP Semiconductors. Currently, Cytron Technologies is carrying the MiFare ISO14443A Classic 1K or 4K card reader/writer – CR038A.
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.
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.
Pinguino is an easy-to-make Arduino-like board based on 8-bit (PIC18Fx550, PIC18Fx5K50, PIC18Fx6J50 and PIC18Fx7J53 family) and 32-bit (PIC32MX Mips family) microcontrollers. In this tutorial, users will be guided to turn a SK40C board with PIC18F4550 microchip into a Pinguino board and program it for LED blinking.
The MDDFS library which is already covered in the previous tutorial can be also used for the PIC32 microcontroller. Please refer to the previous tutorial if you are new to the MDDFS library. The best thing about the PIC32 microcontroller is it has a huge program space, more RAM, and finally, more horsepower than the other PIC microcontrollers available.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to read and write files in a Micro-SD card using a microcontroller. Do not worry as you will be using Microchip’s Memory Disk Drive File System (MDDFS) libraries to help you to do all of these immediately. One thing about the library is, it requires a lot of microcontroller’s program space. The dsPIC30F4013 will be used in this project since it has 48KB of program memory.
