Interfacing SD Card With PIC Microcontroller – XC8

image-16
A memory card (also called a flash memory card) is a solid-state electronic data storage device used for storing digital information. They are commonly used in many electronic devices, including digital cameras, mobile phones, laptop computers, MP3 players and also in many applications where a large amount of data has to be stored either once or continuously like in data loggers. Memory cards are small, re-writable and are able to retain data without power. In this article we will learn how to interface an SD Card to a PIC Microcontroller with SPI bus to write and read from an SD card using the popular Chan's FatFs Generic FAT File System Module library with MPLAB XC8.

Microchip Libraries for Applications

image-1385
Microchip Libraries for Applications (MLA) is a collection of Microchip firmware libraries, drivers, demo projects, documentation and utilities for different type of applications including USB, Graphic displays, File I/O (Memory cards), TCP IP, Smartphone and many more. Not all firmware libraries and demo projects from Microchip are distributed in this package; rather, this package includes a few specific libraries that tend to be used together. By distributing libraries that are used often together, Microchip can provide example projects that integrate the use of multiple libraries.

Interfacing SD Card (FAT32 System) With PIC Microcontroller – MikroC

A memory card (also called a flash memory card) is a solid-state electronic data storage device used for storing digital information. They are commonly used in many electronic devices, including digital cameras, mobile phones, laptop computers, MP3 players and they are also widely used in data logging devices. The FAT32 library can be used for SD cards with more than 2GB of size, it lifts many constraints imposed by FAT16 file system. The key benefits is more addressable space(>2GB) and less wasted space due to smaller cluster size. This library is designed to simplify handling of the underlying hardware (SD/MMC cards), but also to be hardware independent. This library should work on any microcontroller with more than 1.5kB of RAM

Temperature Logger to SD Card with Menu Control – MikroC

An SD Card can be used to log data continuously over time for various purposes, this project shows the design of a temperature data logger with menu control system. The ambient temperature is read every minute and stored in a file on an SD card. When the program starts, the user is given three options: Saving the temperature readings to a new file on an SD card, Appending the temperature readings to an existing file or Sending all the saved file contents to a PC The user will have to choose one option and then press enter to start logging data. This menu only accessible once when the program starts, if the user wants to choose another option, he/she has to restart the program by pressing the reset button.

Microcontroller Interfacing – Advanced

Microcontrollers have become very useful in embedded design as they can easily communicate with other devices, such as sensors, switches, LCD displays, keypads, motors and even other microcontrollers. A microcontroller is basically used as the brain or intelligent processing unit to control other devices connected (interfaced) to it in embedded systems just like a PLC in industrial automation. To interface a device to a microcontroller simply means to Connect a device to a microcontroller. This article will make it easier to anybody with very limited experience in electronics to learn how to interface to a PIC Microcontroller some advanced components Graphical LCD, Quad 7-Segment Display, SD Card, DC Motor, GSM modem, GPS module, Real Time Clock and so on.

Interfacing SD Card with a PIC Microcontroller – Flowcode

A memory card is a solid-state electronic data storage device used for storing digital information. They are commonly used in many electronic devices, including digital cameras, mobile phones, laptop computers, MP3 players etc. They are small, re-writable and are able to retain data without power. This ability to retain data and the ability to re-write many times is the key for flash memory card applications, for example, in digital cameras, where the saved pictures are not lost after the memory card is removed from the camera. Flowcode provides a component for MMC/SDC routines, the FAT Component. This component can be used with any SD / MMC card that is formatted to the FAT16 or FAT32 file structure.
