The Easy to Implement PIC and EEPROM Programmer

Most of you guys here have very familiar with the PIC and EEPROM, but have you ever imagined combining these two stuffs and transforming it into a superior JDM Programmer? Well, before we get this project started, you might be interested to know more about the fact of EEPROM. Do you know that the EEPROM is the shortened form of “Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory”, which it is a type of non-volatile memory that being used in computers and other electronic devices. The main function of EEPROM is to store small amounts of data that strictly be saved when power is removed. As a result, when larger amounts of static data are to be stored, a very specific type of EEPROM like flash memory is considering as more economical than traditional EEPROM devices. Beside that, EEPROMs are recognized as arrays of floating gate transistors. Today, you’re going to develop a JDM Programmer, which it can be handled PIC12, PIC16 and PIC18 family microcontrollers and 24C family EEPROMs without any hassles. The programmer had provided ICSP feature, where it allows IN-Circuit… Continue reading

The Sensual High Power LED mood Lamp

Every person might have different kind of decorations in their houses; some of them would prefer some stylish and sophisticated decors, while other might prefer classical and contemporary art decorations. No matter what type of people you’re categorized with, most of you here will definitely love this stuff, and it’s name is called “Mood Lamp”. Talking about the Mood Lamp, do you mind to DIY an LED Mood Lamp and use it as a sensual add-on for your room that will absolutely impress your loved ones or guests? Well, you might think it’s going to be a very tough project here, where you’re might be wrong in the very first place! The high power Led mood light is based on PIC16F628 and the ability of this MCU is to produce Pulse Width Modulation or PWM pulses. This means, by only varying pulse width, you can easily produce over millions of color combinations by using only the three basic red, green and blue colors! Therefore, with only one RGB Led, it’s capable to produce a rainbow of fading colors simultaneously. And,… Continue reading
