HSL To RGB for PIC Microcontrollers – and others

While the float versions of this function work wonderfully on PCs, the  PIC12F, not so much. Without a math coprocessor or FPU, additional libraries are loaded to handle the floats. This function is a port of the float function which

Digole 2.6 Serial DS320240CIPS-66T SPI LCD Display Library for the PIC18F2550 XC8

The Pros: It’s color and it looks good even at steep angles. Getting a simple Hello, World app running is trivial. It’s engine is a PIC18F26K20! Oh, the price is pretty darn good. Buy 500 units (~$1000) and they’ll tweak

Pulse Width Modulation on a PIC18F2550 – PWM1 & PWM2, XC8

OK, this is for the PIC18F2550. It should work for most, if not all of the PIC18’s, with a few minor changes – Like the TRIS outputs. It will not work with the PIC16’s. It will not work with the

PIC16F684 Flashing an LED with delay_ms, TMR0, Interrupt, & WDT

The LED flashes approximately 150ms every 5 seconds. RC1 (pin 9), triggers the LED. Interestingly, the PIC consumes 28uA at idle, no matter which method is used. Compiles with Microchip’s XC8 (v1.38) Delay function, 28 bytes Timer 0 delay, 31

Using Vishay NTCASCWE3102J or NTCASWE3xx NTC Thermistors with the PIC18F2550

This isn’t a magical cut and paste example. YOU need to do some work.  Why? There are a number of Vishay thermistors, all with different properties and I don’t know which one you have. The values included here are for

Install MPLABX 3.45 on Fedora 24 x64 SOLVED

So, you’re missing a few 32 bit libraries on your 64 bit Fedora install. Note, I DID NOT need to install 32-bit java. # java -version openjdk version “1.8.0_111” OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_111-b16) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.111-b16,

High Priority Timer on a PIC18F2550, XC8

This example demonstrates a high priority interrupt on the PIC18F2550 and MPLABX 3.40 IDE with the XC 1.38 compiler. Make sure YOU remove the spaces WordPress throws in, if not your compiler will whine. Sorry, I can’t assist if you
