PIC Microcontroller with GSM

How would you let your PIC-Micro Board Interface with your Cell Phone (Network). These Cards and Designs will help your Embedded System to be Controlled or Monitored using a simple Wireless Device Networking.

PIC-GSM at Olimex 

Using PIC-GSM you can easily monitor and control your home from everywhere with your GSM cell phone. You can switch on and off relays remotely by SMS. You can monitor the status of your GPIOs or toggle them. You can establish a call to the GSM module and speak or listen on the audio channel of the board. You can monitor the temperature from several digital remote temperature sensors.

CREATE USB Interface - Overtone Labs

PIC18F4550 has a USB Interface easy to use, code or configure. This page will help in trying out this PC friendly PIC Microcontroller. A useful HowTo by Dan Overholt. of OverTone Labs- CUI32Stem

The CREATE USB Interface

The Create USB Interface is an open source microcontroller board that can be programmed in C, BASIC, or Arduino languages. This latest version is called the CUI32Stem, which is designed to work ‘hand-in-hand’ with the GROVE prototyping system including a wide range of sensors and actuators.

CREATE USB Interface - Overtone Labs
PIC18F4550

The PIC is the heart of the board. It's a programmable microcontroller with 32Kbytes of flash program memory and 2kbytes of general purpose SRAM. It has 13 A/D inputs and 18 general purpose I/O ports. On the CUI board, one of the general purpose I/O pins is dedicated to the "program" button to enter bootloading mode. You can use the remaining ports for anything you wish.

PIC Project by Myke Predko

"The application itself consists of the 16F84 PICMicro (with power, reset and clocking 'core') with two LEDs and a button. One of the LEDs is lit by the PICMicro while the other is lit when the button is pressed. "
PIC Project by Myke Predko
 


The Experience he Gained -

"There is one point to make about the layout that you should always keep in mind when developing a circuit with a microcontroller or other programmable device; you should always design the circuit in such a way that the chip can be pulled easily. This means that there should be space at either end for prying the chip up out of its socket or, as I like to do, slide a small screwdriver underneath the PICMicro and "pop" it up simply by twisting it. I know a lot of people that end up cursing themselves because they've forgotten to remember this basic operation"


The Experience of the remote Hobbyist is very important for a Kit Maker or Gadget Maker. We tend to feel .."everybody thinks like me". Each person has his own faculties, tools and experience. Most importantly - the method of teaching which has to adapt to each student. Hence it is important to have a spread of different things and methods, for a enthusiast to choose from. - delabs

A very slow 0.. 5 Volt fader

A circuit that generates a voltage that rises slowly from 0 to 10 Volt and (when a switch is flipped) slowly back to 0. The request did not pose much restriction on the wave form, but a rise / fall time of 30 minutes should be possible.

I got a mail question, which i logged here Long Duration Linear Sweep or Ramp Generator. The above project could be an neat answer.

Pic Projects from Mondo Technology

Pic Projects from Mondo Technology

These are many projects you can try out with Microchip PIC. Code and schematics are there. You can build it then start tweaking or altering the code and later modify circuit. This is another way of learning. You must be sound in building analog and logic circuits first.

This is the order of learning ..

  • Learn to use Batteries, LEDs, Wires, Switches, Soldering Iron and Resistors.
  • Build some projects with NPN and PNP transistors with capacitors.
  • Try some Toy Transmitters and Receivers using RF devices and Inductors.
  • Fix some power supplies like Transformers, Diodes, Regulators.
  • Configure small Analog Amplifiers and also Audio Amplifiers, 555 Timer.
  • Test out some LOGIC circuits with the 40xx Chips like 4093, 4028.
  • Start with some small PIC project or 80C51 Microcontroller.
  • Make a SOC with DSP and build a Robot Brain controlled Online.
  • Get a Patent quick !
