The application presented here is software driven device that allows the user to test the servo motors used in remote control operated models such as cars, boats, planes and so on. The tester is developed based on M16C/28 microcontroller. There are many opportunities when one may need to test a servo. Either the servo has […]

RS232 Analyzer, QuickComs

April 19, 2012 By: admin Category: Digital, Interfacing, Microcontroller, Renesas, Tools No Comments →

With RS232 quickly being replaced by USB, the nightmare of incorrectly wired appliances and forgotten baud rates will be a thing of the past. Unfortunately RS232 will still be with us for a long time to come and as it becomes used less frequently the exact parity and baud rates for devices can easily be […]

Digital Instrument Panel for Diesel Engines

April 16, 2012 By: admin Category: Interfacing, Microcontroller, Project, Renesas Comments Off on Digital Instrument Panel for Diesel Engines

This project serves as a ‘black box’ which interfaces with the pressure, temperature, RPM and other sensors of a Diesel Engine to generate serial packet data for a ‘Digital Instrument Panel’, which can be viewed on a PC, on an operator’s HMI (Human Machine Interface) console or wirelessly via the Bluetooth link on a PDA.
