14 Jun: Simple steps to control Stepper Motor using 2Amp Motor Driver Shield and CIKU

INTRODUCTION: CIKU is born from the experiences of using Arduino and feedback we gathered from SK40C users. Ciku comes with PIC18F4550 pre-programed with Microchip USB HID Bootloader and with this, loading program only requires a USB Mini-B cable, no extra programmer is needed. This will lower the cost needed to get started. In this tutorial, I will show how to integrate CIKU with 2A Motor Driver Shield and a stepper motor.     HARDWARE REQUIRED:...

05 Apr: Using MDD10A with CIKU

Introduction MDD10A stands for Motor Driver Dual Channel 10(Amps). This DRIVER is the dual channel version of MD10C, designed to drive 2 brushed DC motors with high current of up to 10A each, continuously. Just like MD10C, MDD10A can be controlled with two different methods: locked-antiphase and sign-magnitude PWM control. It also only uses solid state components which results in faster response time and eliminates the wear and tear of mechanical relays. What is CIKU? CIKU…

25 Dec: CT-UNO and CIKU have “legs” :)

CT- UNO with plastic "legs"  CIKU with plastic "legs" You will get supporting plastic "leg" on CIKU and CT-UNO if your order is being shipped out 20th Dec 2014 onward. We have added 4 snap and fit supporting plastic spacers. Look nice and it protect the board from scratching your table when you work with CT-UNO or CIKU :) Besides, you can also use it as spacer if you want to mount it to robot...

23 Dec: CIKU – Create New Project from Scratch

There are several return of CIKU board from customers, claiming the bootloader is corrupted. We have spotted a reason where user want to create their own project instead of using provided CIKU project. Unfortunately, they have overwrite CIKU bootloader inside PIC18F4550 and this cause CIKU can't be detected when trying to enter bootloader mode. Today I would like to share how to create a proper MPLAX X new project from scratch for CIKU, with the...
