Connecting Light Emitting Diodes to a PIC Microcontroller – Flowcode

An 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. In this article we will learn how to connect and switch on and off various LEDs to a microcontroller using Flowcode Compiler. This is the simplest project a beginner in embedded programming [...]


USB Communication with PIC Microcontroller

Many computers especially portable ones do not have a serial port (COM Port) anymore. When a connection to a Personal Computer (PC) is required, a USB is the choice. The Universal Serial Bus (USB) is the widely used interface in electronic consumer products today. Most of electronic devices have at least one USB port on them, this include PCs, cameras, GPS devices, printers and so on. Some PIC18 microcontrollers support USB interface directly. 16bits (PIC24) and 32-bits (PIC32) pic microcontrollers [...]


Digital Thermometer – Flowcode

Temperature sensors are very important in many projects especially in temperature logging devices and alarms. In this article we are going to design a digital thermometer using Flowcode. This digital thermometer is built around the LM35 which is a precision integrated-circuit temperature sensor whose output voltage is linearly proportional to the Celsius (Centigrade) temperature. Its output changes by 10 mV per °C so there is no need for calibration. It can measure a wide range of temperature from −55 to [...]


Introduction to Programming Microcontrollers with Flowcode V6

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 [...]


Automatic Temperature Control System using PIC Microcontroller – Flowcode

An automatic temperature control system has the ability to monitor and control the temperature of a specified space without human intervention. This project uses a PIC microcontroller to automatically control the temperature of an area. This area could be a small plant, a house or any place or device that require a controlled temperature like an incubator (egg) for example. The desired temperature setting is entered using a keypad and stored in microcontroller EEPROM even if the there is a power [...]


Getting Started with ESP8266 WiFi Transceiver

The ESP8266 is a wonder WiFi module that can literally give any microcontroller access to WiFi network and thus enabling countless Internet of Things (IoT) and Home Automation applications at a fraction of cost compared to the alternative options. It’s easy to use, it’s popular, it has stormed the world of makers in recent years since 2014, you can now build your own cool electronic application that communicates to the internet and can be accessed from anywhere in the world
