We believe many PIC microcontroller lover like to utilize Arduino shield, so here comes the CIKU. CIKU is a microcontroller board based on the PIC18F4550. It has 20 digital input/output pins (of which 2 can be used as PWM outputs and 6 as analog inputs), a 20 MHz crystal oscillator (clock speed up to 48 MHz after PLL), a mini USB connection, a power jack, a standard Arduino IO header, a PICkit header, a bootloader switch and a reset button. Besides focus on hardware solution […]
If you are familiar with XBee, you might have experience of the module does not response to your X-CTU or Terminal program or microcontroller. Yup, for unknown reason, XBee module might be DEAD :) But you can revive it by
We have been using PTK40A for PIC Microcontroller workshop since it is launched in 2010. With it, we have 3 different PIC Workshop, Module 1, 2 and Advance. All these workshops use the famous Mid-Range PIC microcontroller – PIC16F877A. Frankly,
Is kind of boring walking up and down the staircase L Since we moved our HQ to Penang, RnD is being placed on 1st floor, so all engineers have to exercise more :) But wait, we can make the walking up
Nowadays, FM radio frequency had already become common for communication use. It use for data transfer, Medical treatment, cosmetic treatment and more. Radio frequency (RF) is a rate of oscillation in the range of around 3 kHz to 300 GHz, which corresponds to the frequency of radio waves, and
I already share Arduino Wireless Programming tutorial before, by using a BBFuino. But people ask me, how if I already have Arduino UNO, is there any shield that can do that? The answer is YES! HARDWARE 1. Arduino Uno (link).
By: Ober Choo, RH2T Magazine, Vol.8, Mar11 Last volume of magazine, we talked about constructing a stable voltage supply of 5V for embedded circuit. This volume, we continue with another portion of hardware, setup an interface for loading program (hex
By Ober Choo, RH2T Magazine, Vol.7, Jan 11 I am sure if you are a supporter of PIC microcontroller, you would be sure to know the famous PIC16F877A. Yet, time flies and now new PIC model that aims to replace
