16F1509 Ramp Generator using the internal 5-bit DAC

To be honest, I have never considered using the PIC 16F1509 digital to analog converter before. I was considering integrating a DAC internally or externally to a microcontroller for my brother’s synth project. I started on the microchip site and found a number of smaller PICs, 12F1501.. 16F1503,┬áthat had a 5bit DAC. The 16F753 has…

Analog Stepper Gauge Friday night fun

Took a while to clear off the bench tonight. I got a little happy with the ORDER button last week through weekend. I’ve filled two more parts storage containers and luckily one of my new packages with another parts storage container from Amazon; I couldn’t find any locally, I hope they’re still making them. The…

A very ugly Chip Quik cooler

My wife is kicking all non-food items out of the Frig… time to find a new place for the Chip Quik! Chip Quik is a brand of solder paste used often in hobbyist reflow; this is the product I used to solder SMD parts to printed circuit boards. The product can work six months (or…

PIC 18F26K22 PWM+A/D with MOSFET, the start of an eScooter?

I’m considering building an electric scooter; considering it probably putting it lightly.. I have almost everything I need for it.  Interested? Why type so much when you can just watch my proof of concept! If you’re following along and want to use the same hardware (warning totally untested… ): Controller found on the TAUTC Tindie…

A review of a handful of PIC development boards

I don’t know what possessed me to make this video but I decided to go through some of the PIC microcontroller boards I have. I was inspired by my recent purchase of half a dozen of the new TAUTIC 18F26K22 development boards. This was money well spent. I think between this and the 20 pin…

The Hackers Bench Tone Sequencer

@JohnS_AZ shared his beautiful schematic of a tone sequencer [PDF] he designed with me a few weeks ago. I think he designed it for the @tymkrs ? I watched the video and it looked like a fun project, I wasn’t wrong! John’s webpage is at : http://hackersbench.com/ I was shooting for sticking this project into…
