Well, some of you here might have built a few PIC frequency counter before, and fully understand about its usability in the electronic field. However, for those who never get in touch with PIC frequency counter, it’s an electronic instrument that being used for measuring frequency.
Technically, frequency is defined as the number of events of a particular sort occurring in a set period of time. In order to measure the frequency, you have to use a counter to accumulate the number of events occurring within a specific time. Let’s say, after a preset period (1 minute, for example), the value in the counter is to be reset to zero automatically!
By the way, we’re going to build an IK3OIL 16F84 PIC Frequency Counter. Most people are worry, as they might need to waste a lot of money buying the electronic components. Well, you know what? This IK3OIL 16F84 PIC Frequency Counter is very cheap, as the cost of the counter is cost you about US$2, while the display is only less than US$5!
Frankly, this IK3OIL 16F84 PIC Frequency Counter is a marvelous frequency counter, as it not only cheap, but can perform a better result than other frequency counter did!
