Arduino + Visual Basic : PWM Control

Vb Pwm Banner

Pulse Width Modulation or PWM allows the microcontroller to mimic analog control by turning the voltage on and off very quickly. The Arduino has an 8 bit PWM built-in, which means it has up to 256 levels of control. ( 2^8 = 256 ). These 256 levels of control actually determines the percentage of the ON duty cycle over the …

Microchip PIC Delay Calculator

Delay Calc Banner

Delays are very essential in the operation of a microcontroller. Because microcontrollers execute instructions at a very fast rate (in microseconds), programmers need to apply delay so that it can interact properly with humans, for example, delay must be used to create software debouncing. Unfortunately, the MPLAB IDE does not have a built-in delay function unlike the Arduino IDE (Arduino …

GPA Calculator Program

Gpa Calc Banner2

Calculating the GPA after every semester can be quite tricky. That is why I’ve created this program to help me calculate much easier. This was actually inspired by one of my C++ Assignments but the program can only be used to calculate GPA in my college┬ábecause every university or college have their own grading system. To overcome that, I’ve overhauled …
