Guys, there is a good news for all of you here today! Have you ever heard that there is a new USB-powered module is already available in the market?
Well, this little buddy measuring only 1.375×0.6 inches and it can be easily fitted into any of the breadboards! Let’s meet the DLP-232PC, our newborn USB-powered module that uses single byte serial commands to control a PIC18F2410 microcontroller.
This DLP-232PC has 14 I/O channels, where 8 of them can be used for 0-5V analog inputs. Furthermore, the preprogrammed firmware has made this DLP-232PC easier to access to the I/O lines and external digital temperature sensors. You can connect up to 14 DS18B20 digital temperature sensors to this DLP-232PC without any further modification!
The data-in-line format DLP-232PC Data Acquisition Module is using the low-cost, easy to setup, ready-made board for measuring voltages, controlling and monitoring processes. Each of the 14 available channels can be configured for digital I/O or temperature modes via single-byte commands!
The mode of each I/O is to be known as automatically changed with each command sent and the operational power is taken from the host PC via the USB port.
