Remote Debugging of Embedded Systems

Most of us are working from home during this COVID-19 pandemic situation. I have personally struggled to debug some of my hardwares remotely. Today I am going to introduce a completely new method for remote debugging of embedded systems. Using this method you can debug a remote system as if it is connected to your local computer. Here we are using a software named, USB Network Gate developed by Electronic Team Inc. Installation Download USB Network Gate.Run the programSelect Language and...

Digital Alarm Clock using PIC Microcontroller and DS3234 RTC

Here is a digital alarm clock made using PIC 18F4520 Microcontroller and DS3234 RTC (Real Time Clock). This project is for educational purposes or can be used as a reference for integrating DS3234 RTC. DS3234 is a very accurate RTC IC with integrated on chip temperature compensated crystal oscillator. It can be integrated with a microcontroller using SPI bus. This project is developed using MPLAB XC8 compiler. Components Required PIC 18F4520 MicrocontrollerDS3234 RTC20MHz Crystal 4x3 Keypad16x2 LCD10KΩ preset5V buzzerLEDBC547...

Getting Started with OpenWrt C Programing

In this tutorial we will learn how to cross compile a C program for OpenWrt. Cross compiling a C program for OpenWrt is a little complicated task for beginners. So I thought of writing a detailed tutorial for it. Please feel free to comment below if you have any doubts or you want to add anything more to this article. OpenWrt Prerequisite You need a linux system for making the OpenWrt build environment. We are using Ubuntu in this tutorial. Windows 10...

Digital Thermometer using LM35 Sensor and ESP8266

In this project, we are going to monitor the current room temperature over internet using ESP8266 programmed as a web server. It is accomplished by establishing data communication between ESP8266 WiFi module and LM35 temperature sensor using ADC. Components Required ESP8266 LM35 Breadboard Connecting Wires Hardware Circuit Diagram LM 35 with ESP8266 - Circuit Diagram Circuit Connection Connect 3.3V pin of ESP8266 to first pin of LM35 Connect A0 pin of ESP8266 to second pin of LM35 Connect GND pin of ESP8266 to third pin of...

Web Controlled Servo Motor – Arduino – IoT Project

Internet of things has taken over all the heavy loads from human to itself. IoT is an ecosystem of connected physical objects that are accessible through the internet. As Automation is used to help mankind in various environments if we combine the automation and Internet of things we can achieve more than we can think of. In this project, we are going to control the servo motor from webpage by using Arduino Uno. The webpage will be created using ESP8266 module. The...

Home Automation using Bluetooth and Mobile App

Technology is a never ending process. To be able to design a product using the current technology that will be beneficial to the lives of others is a huge contribution to the community. Generally in today’s modern world human beings are addicted to using modern equipment. So here we can perform home automation by using an Android App and Bluetooth as a wireless communication medium. Home automation not only refers to reduce human efforts but also energy efficiency and time...

Using Push Button Switch with PIC Microcontroller – CCS C

I hope that you already go through our first tutorial of CCS C Compiler, Getting Started with PIC Microcontroller - CCS C Compiler. In that tutorial we learn how to use an output pin of PIC Microcontroller by blinking an LED with a delay of 1 second. In this tutorial we will learn how to read the status of an input pin and to make decisions according to its state. For the demonstration of its working we are connecting...

Using UART of PIC Microcontroller – MPLAB XC8

UART stands for Universal Asynchronous Receiver / Transmitter. It is a very popular serial communication interface which provides Full Duplex communication between two devices. UART uses two data lines for sending (TX) and receiving (RX) data. Ground/Reference of both devices should be made common. As the name indicates it is an asynchronous communication interface, which means that it doesn't need to send CLOCK along with data as in synchronous communications. UART is the communication interface used by our old...
