Inspired PIC® Projects


Rube Goldberg Machine


This Rube Goldberg machine uses various sensors in a chain of reactions that ultimately ends with a gumball rolling out of the Gumball machine. The only motion needed to start the machine is a clap from the hands. The processors used in this machine were all easy-to-use CCS E3mini boards that have a PIC® processor programmable from a USB port. See more...


USB Interface Made Simple with Project Wizard


This project will make use of a diagnostic interface on a common digital caliper to display the results to the PC. The CCS C-Aware IDE Compiler will utilize the Project Wizard tool to easily generate code for a USB interface to this existing product. Follow these simple steps to create code quickly! See more...


810 MIPS Multi-Processor Demonstration Using C Language on PIC®


This 9x9 cube matrix is a modular design constructed to demonstrate how PIC18F8525 8-bit MCUs talk via a serial bus. Each individual cube contains one PIC18F8525 that controls each of the 64 LEDs. The well-synchronized multi-processor communication was written in C using the CCS C compiler. See more...
