Flowcode Variables

In simple terms, a variable is a location in memory where we can store information. The type of variable created must match the correct type of information that has to be stored in, if we want to store a number, we cannot store it in a location destined to store strings (characters). In this article we introduce the different types of Flowcode variables.

Reading Switches With PIC Microcontroller – Flowcode

Switches are digital inputs and are widely used in electronic projects as most systems need to respond to user commands or sensors. Connecting a switch is very useful because a switch can represent a wide range of digital devices in real world like limit sensors, level switches, proximity switches, keypads (a combination of switches) etc. With flowcode it is very easy to connect a switch to any PORT of microcontroller all you need to do is to click on a switch [...]

Interfacing LCD Display – Flowcode

LCDs are alphanumeric (or graphical) displays, which are frequently used in microcontroller based applications which require some information to be displayed to the user. There are many devices in the market which come in different shapes and sizes. Some LCDs have 40 or more character lengths with the capability to display several lines. Some other LCD displays can be programmed to display graphic images. Some modules offer colour displays, while some others incorporate back lighting so that they can be [...]

Interfacing 7-Segment Display – Flowcode

The 7-segment display is the earliest type of an electronic display that uses 7 LEDs bars arranged in a way that can be used show the numbers 0 – 9. (actually 8 segments if you count the decimal point, but the generic name adopted is 7-segment display.) These devices are commonly used in digital clocks, electronic meters, counters, signalling, and other equipment for displaying numeric only data. Flowcode has components for both a quad 7-segment display which can display 4 [...]

Analog to Digital Converter with PIC Microcontroller – Flowcode

Analog to Digital converters allow analog continuous voltages to be converted into a discreet digital numbers inside the PIC as the PIC can only process digital numbers. This can enable a PIC to be connected to analog sensors such as temperature sensors, pressure sensors, humidity sensors, optical sensors, and power sensors. This is a nice feature to use as most of PIC microcontrollers today have built-in analog to digital converters (ADC) with the number of channels depending on the number [...]
