PIC Based Intelligent NiCd/NiMH Charger/Cycler

06/28/2010 Category: Microcontroller, PIC, Power Supply, Project


This PIC16F876A-based accu cycler project allow you to charge and discharge NiCd and NiMH accumulators for R/C modelers and others. It has performance close to commercial products in the market. The ‘intelligent’ part of the system can communicates with PC using serial port providing additional process visualization. The process graph is saved to on-board EEPROM memory and it is possible to download the data to PC even when the charging/discharging process has finished. The charger also utilize with LCD 16×2 for quick display.

The PIC 16F876A firmware use Basic source program. To get the HEX file you need to compile it with PIC Simulator IDE integrated Basic compiler. Intelligent NiCd/NiMH Charger/Cycler is designed by Vladimir Soso.
