Reading Switches With PIC Microcontroller – MikroC

Push Buttons or Switches are digital inputs and are widely used in electronic projects as most systems need to respond to user commands or sensors. Reading a switch is very useful because a switch is widely used and can also represent a wide range of digital devices in real world like limit sensors, level switches, proximity switches, keypads (a combination of switches) etc. Connecting a switch to a microcontroller is straight forward, all we need is a pull-up or pull-down [...]

Reading Switches With PIC Microcontroller – XC8

Switches are digital inputs and are widely used in electroninc projects as most systems need to respond to user commands or sensors. Reading a switch is very useful because a switch is widely used and can also represent a wide range of digital devices in real world like limit sensors, level switches, proximity switches, keypads (a combination of switches) etc. Connecting a switch to a microcontroller is straight forward, all we need is a pull-up or pull-down resistor.

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 [...]

Microcontroller Interfacing – Basics

Microcontrollers have become very useful in embedded design as they can easily communicate with other devices, such as sensors, switches, LCD displays, keypads, motors and even other microcontrollers. A microcontroller is basically used as the brain or intelligent processing unit to control other devices connected (interfaced) to it in embedded systems just like a PLC in industrial automation. To interface a device to a microcontroller simply means to Connect a device to a microcontroller. This article will make it easier to [...]

Microcontroller Interfacing – Sensors

Microcontrollers have become very useful in embedded design as they can easily communicate with other devices, such as sensors, switches, displays, keypads, motors and even other microcontrollers. A microcontroller is basically used as the brain or intelligent processing unit to control other devices connected (interfaced) to it in embedded systems just like a PLC is in industrial automation. Interfacing a device with a microcontroller in simplest terms simply means to connect a device to a microcontroller. This article [...]

Using a Push Button with Arduino

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 [...]
