Interfacing a Relay with PIC Microcontroller – MikroC

A relay is an electromagnetic switch which is used to switch High Voltage/Current using Low power circuits. Relays isolate as well low power circuits from high power circuits, this is a good feature especially for safety reasons a section of the circuit with high dangerous voltage/current could be isolated from the user. When a low voltage is applied to the relay (coil wounded on a soft iron core), this coil becomes a magnet which in turns energizes the soft [...]

Web-Based Control and Monitoring with PIC Microcontroller – MikroC

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. In this project we are going to learn how to control any device like an LED, a relay, a light bulb, a motor and so on connected to a PIC Microcontroller from a remote location using just a web browser. An operator can use a computer, tablet or even a cellphone to control [...]

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 [...]

Arduino Shield Tutorial – Make Your Own Relay Shield

Arduino shields are boards that can be plugged on top of the Arduino PCB to extend its capabilities. This makes prototyping with Arduino plug and play. Instead of soldering or wiring external devices or sensors, you can simply hook your board with a shield. This speeds up development time even for absolute beginners. This is a practical tutorial, we’re gonna build a fully working complete Arduino Relay shield, we’re gonna go through all the steps
