CloudX - PIC Microcontroller Development Board

Bluetooth Home Automation With CloudX

Bluetooth wireless technology has grown to become one of the widely used protocols in the field of communication today. Although it has lower range of reach when compared to other wireless communication protocols such as WiFi and ZigBee ─with which it operates on the same frequency of 2.41 GHz; it is still very suitable for many low range applications. As a matter of fact, it has an enough bandwidth to meet most of our regular mobile and personal communication demands. It [...]

Interfacing LCD with CloudX Board

To have a good relationship between human world and machine world, display units plays a vital part. Displays allows us to know what’s happening in a device like the voltage, temperature, present status of the device and even device fault detection etc. LCD’s have a very wide application in embedded systems and it is more preferred than seven segment displays. Alphanumeric LCDs are most commonly used in embedded projects since it is commonly available and easy to use.16×2 LCD [...]

CloudX – Writing to PORTs

In the previous tutorial we saw how to blink an LED using CloudX board, but in some projects we might need to write to a PORT or a group of pins at the same time. For eg., for designing an 8 LED chaser, writing to pins one after the other makes your code look so bulky but writing to a PORT at once for this kind of projects will make your code look neat and more efficient. A PORT is [...]
