28 Jul: Gesture Sensor (APDS9960) interface with SK40C+PIC16F877A

Introduction: Hi everyone!! Since we have received requests from users on how to integrate the Gesture sensor with PIC, we came out with this tutorial. In this tutorial, we are using the SK40C with PIC16F877A to read the hands gesture and lastly display on LCD. Covered in this tutorial: Material required (Hardware and software) Additional information about the gesture sensor Circuit diagram of Gesture sensor interface with SK40C Code overview  Demonstration video If you have further...

30 Apr: How does SN-IRS-01 work?

Hello everyone! Today, I am going to discuss about a very special light sensor (drumrolls), the INFRARED SENSOR! Many people have been asking about the operation of the infrared sensor,  the most common questions being "How do I use it?" and "Do I need to use any comparator for this sensor?" I hope with this tutorial, you can get a clearer picture on how this sensor works. The figure shows the Infrared sensor set, SN-IRS-01. These sensors...

21 Apr: Late New Products Post :)

Yup, again I am late to post the news on New Products. Sorry been busy working on magazine and design work :) Last month I talked about more Arduino main board and shields, this month there are many more product on rack. Let's have fun! Replacement for MD10B. Yup, the MD10B has been discountinued. We replace it with MD10C. Support upto 10A continuous current and 15A peak (10 seconds). Control method can be sign-magnitude PWM...

17 Oct: Line Following Robot?

No, today I am not going to talk about doing line following robot, just want to highlight one of the important component - Line Sensor. There are many methods to sense line, the most common method is to use IR (Infrared) Receiver and Transmitter. The concept is to emit Infrared and detect the reflection of it. White surface will reflect more infrared compared to black surface. If we are able to read the differences between...
