rero! rero! What is that? Rero is being launched at indiegogo, a website for world to raise fund from the world J, and we are raising fund to create more interesting parts and production. Do check it out at here and please help to support (even a t-shirt or donation for school). And most importantly, […]
Introduction We had receive suggestion from user on how to integrate the SN-HC-SR04 sensor with PIC. In this section, we are using the SK40C with PIC16F887 to read the pulse width with proportion to distance and lastly display on LCD. Hardware Required SK40C […]
MiFare is a contactess smart cards system and is being trademark by NXP Semiconductors. Currently, Cytron Technologies is carrying the MiFare ISO14443A Classic 1K or 4K card reader/writer – CR038A.
MiFare is a contactless smart card system which is being trademark by NXP Semiconductors. With MiFare reader/writer, useful information can be either read from or written into MiFare cards which will then be used in applications like electronic wallet, access control, corporate ID cards, transportation and so on.
In this tutorial, users will be guided to interface the DS3231 RTC module with both PIC and Arduino. The platform to be used for the PIC interface is the SK40C board with PIC16F887 while the platform to be used for Arduino interface is the BBFUINO board, which is Arduino compatible.
Yes! The PS2 have Arduino shield now! The Cytron PS2 Shield is designed to be compatible with SONY PS2 wired and wireless type. Previously I have write an article on G15 cube servo motor on Mobile Robot, controlled using SKPS or SKPSW, but you need to do some wiring. Since Cytron have launched the shield […]
Introduction Building a virtual circuit in breadboard view using Fritzing gives a better representation of circuit connections close to the real circuit. Recently, Cytron Technolgies have been integrated many virtual circuits in breadboard view in online tutorials to improve the understanding of users on connections of involved circuits. The good news is Cytron Technologies have […]
LED dot-matrix display is a good medium of displaying information in terms of text or image. More interestingly, texts or images displayed can be made animated instead static in place only. Some related applications are displaying advertisements, time, price of product and scoring.
Pinguino is an easy-to-make Arduino-like board based on 8-bit (PIC18Fx550, PIC18Fx5K50, PIC18Fx6J50 and PIC18Fx7J53 family) and 32-bit (PIC32MX Mips family) microcontrollers. In this tutorial, users will be guided to turn a SK40C board with PIC18F4550 microchip into a Pinguino board and program it for LED blinking.
I have been given a task to build an attendance system for staff. The requirements are quite straight-forward. It needs to be standalone (without computer), fingerprint is preferred, record real time and the record should be in SD card. 1.0 Introduction There has been various kinds of attendance record system in the market, RFID-based, fingerprint […]
