The Spectacular and Fun PIC16F628 4 RGB LED PWM Controller

Maybe some of you here have been developed the RGB LED PWM Controller before, but would you mind to try out the amazing PIC16F628 4 RGB LED PWM Controller?

If you’re always been a big fan of LEDs, the bright, colorful and flashing LEDs are going to light up your boring life!

PIC16F628 4 RGB LED PWM Controller

Look on the above figure closely. Isn’t the PIC16F628 4 RGB LED PWM Controller sound like an interesting project to you?

Yep, the simple-to-use PIC16F628 microcontrollers would be the main electronic components, beside of the RS232 serial control, a built-in 4MHz oscillator and hardware USART.

There are some important features, which you must keep in mind during the designation:

  1. The multiple intensities for each color (How to control the LEDs using PWM).

  2. The multiple individually controllable RGB LEDs.

  3. The ultimately high-speed update rate.

  4. The Daisy-chainable and addressable features.

  5. The very simple serial control by using RS232 serial control.

By the way, if you want to cut off the building cost, then you might want to consider the PCB printed, as it cost measly US$5 for each board! In this case, you have to buy four PCB boards, which are only cost US$20!

Have fun with this fun LEDs project…

The Super Cool and Easy Internet-enabled Message Center

Well, you might have heard about the Arduino before, but have you ever get involved with ioBridge IO-204? For those who have no idea of ioBridge, it responsible for remote controlling and monitoring without network configuration or programming.

Internet-enabled Message Center

Today, we’re going to create an easy Internet-enabled Message Center. Basically, it used the ioBridge IO-204 as the main part with the combination of Arduino. This internet-enabled message center is easy to operate, which by only a press of button, you can get the temperature on the LCD screen in no time!

In addition, with this device, you can also acquire the latest stock quote from Google (The stock quote comes from the Yahoo Financials API). Continue reading
