In this article we will discuss the PWM with Flowcode. Pulse width modulation (PWM) is a technique of controlling the amount of power delivered to an electronic load by switching ON and OFF a digital signal. This is the simplest technique that can be used to produce analog voltages from a digital one. The fraction of the period for which the signal is ON to the total period is known as the duty cycle. The average DC value of the signal can be varied by varying the duty cycle. The duty cycle can be anywhere between 0 (signal is always off) to 1 (signal is constantly on).
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.
Ethernet is the leading wired standard for networking as it enables to connect a very large number of computers, microcontrollers and other computer-based equipment to one another. With just a network switch, many different devices can easily communicate with one another with Ethernet, allowing different devices and equipment to be accessed remotely and this also provides a cost-effective and reliable means of remote control and monitoring, home automation, Internet of Things applications and many more. If you are using a microcontroller which does not have an integrated Ethernet peripheral, Microchip offers a serial Ethernet chip that can easily be used by any microcontroller with an SPI interface to provide Ethernet capability to the application. many compilers offer peripheral libraries to get you started in minutes.
