Interfacing DC Motor with PIC Microcontroller – Flowcode

image-2753
DC motors are used in many industrial, commercial, and domestic applications. We have DC motors in toys, irrigation pumps, robotics, Drills and in many applications. In this article, we are going to learn how to control a DC motor with a PIC Microcontroller, rotating it in either the clockwise or anticlockwise direction using Flowcode for PIC.

Introduction to Programming Microcontrollers with Flowcode V6

image-1665
Flowcode is one of the World’s most advanced graphical programming languages for microcontrollers. It allows you to create complex microcontroller applications with advanced peripheral interfacing which make it easy to connect wide range of devices such as switches, LCD displays, analogue sensors, SD cards, Real time clocks, RS232/RS485, GPS, GSM, Bluetooth and so on by just dragging and dropping icons onto a flowchart. No prior knowledge of programming is required to start this course but a basic knowledge of PIC microcontrollers is necessary. In this article we are going to get a quick introduction to Flowcode v6.

Getting Started with Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi is a small credit card sized computer, It is very cheap compared to the traditional computers, the Raspberry Pi Foundation has arrangements with a few manufacturers from whom you can buy a Pi directly at $25 - $35. The Raspberry Pi unlike the traditional computer, it has the ability to integrate with electronics projects. Raspberry Pi to control devices that a microcontroller can control like LEDs, relays, LCDs etc. A Raspberry Pi is better used where more processing power and connectivity is needed like for exemple when you want to remotely access a temperature sensor via the web to change its settings and download temperature log files and more in general Internet of Things (IoT) and Home Automation applications you should consider using the Raspberry Pi.

Getting Started with Flowcode for Arduino

Arduino is the open source electronics prototyping platform. It has become popular in the world of hobbyists, students, artists, programmers and professionals. Arduino was born as an easy tool for fast prototyping, aimed at students without a background in electronics and programming. With Flowcode for Arduino, the advantages are even greater. Flowcode is one of the World’s most advanced graphical programming languages for microcontrollers. It allows you to create complex microcontroller applications with advanced peripheral interfacing which make it easy to connect wide range of devices such as switches, LCD displays, analogue sensors, SD cards, Real time clocks, RS232/RS485, GPS, GSM, Bluetooth and so on by just dragging and dropping icons onto a flowchart.

Analog to Digital Conversion – Arduino

image-1898
Analog to Digital converters allow analog continuous voltages to be converted into a discreet digital numbers inside the microcontroller as the microcontroller can only process digital numbers. This can enable the Arduino to be connected to analog sensors such as temperature sensors, pressure sensors, humidity sensors, optical sensors, and power sensors. Any sensor which can generate a voltage between 0V and a maximum 5V can be used.

Using a Push Button with Arduino

image-1827
Push buttons and Switches are digital inputs and are widely used in electronic projects as most systems need to respond to user commands or sensors. Reading a push button is very useful because a push button is widely used and can also represents a wide range of digital devices in real world like switches, limit sensors, level switches, proximity switches, keypads (a combination of switches) etc. In this case, we’re going to use the simplest form of sensor: a push button switch. In this tutorial we are going to learn Arduino functions to read a switch connected to Digital Inputs pins.

Blinking an LED with Arduino

image-1753
A Light Emitting Diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source, when forward biased, it emits light. LEDs are used mainly to indicate the status of electronic circuits, for example to indicate that power is on or off but nowadays they are used in many applications including lighting and beam detection. All of us start learn a new programming from Hello World. In microcontroller fields the Hello World example is usually blinking an led, in this article we will learn how to Blink an LED with Arduino.
