If you’re one of those gameboy lovers and you always have passion want to try something new here, then you’ve come to the right place! For your information, today’s main theme is how to make an open source gameboy. You must be wondered, “Why should I waste $250 for develop an open source gameboy, instead I can buy 10 used gameboy on eBay easily?” Well, it sounds non-sense to you here, but once you’ve learned how to DIY a gameboy, you’ll be pleased of what you’ve done here! This Open source Gameboy is an Arduino-based, DIY GamePack is sort of like the Mignon Game Kit, but it is definitely looks much better and cooler. With only $249.93, you can have all these parts: CPU, “inputshield” customizable, vibrating controller, button component, … Continue reading

For those of you that always involved yourself with the IR transceiver, you must know how annoying when it cannot even transmit and receive infrared signals as it should be… Thus, for overcome this matter, you’d better DIY a more powerful Serial Port IR Transceiver, rather than just pick out the money from your wallet and buy it at the electronic store! Firstly, you should use the PIC12F508 microcontroller as the main brain of this project. Why? It is because it is an Air-Byte transceiver, which is actually a tiny 8-pin PIC microcontroller. The another reason of using this PIC is it can simply monitors the GPIO, 0 connected to the PC serial port TX pin #3. As a result, when this pin transits from logic low to logic high, … Continue reading

DIY Your Own PIC Programmer Today!

You have been very frustrated about the already setup PIC programmer, and wish that you can have an easier to have a PIC programmer, which can be re-programmed easily? Instead of complaint about the matter, it is better to DIY a sophisticated PIC-Programmer for your own use… The PIC-Programmer that you are going to develop was a modification of a JDM-Programmer. This mean you have to connect the PIC-programmer with the serial com port of your computer! Since this device don’t even need any additional external power supply, thus you’ll save a lot of money here. Ok, you must be wondered that what types of PIC microcontrollers and EEPROM’s you should use in this project. Well, since there is no any restriction for the PIC microcontrollers and EEPROM, you can … Continue reading

The GPS-Based Universal Clock Generator is Incredibly Awesome!

GPS clock PIC

If you’re on search for the GPS-based universal clock generator, then you can stop the searching right now, as today you’ll learn to DIY the tool for your own use! Do you know that the GPS satellites and GPS Ground Segment are need an extremely high and accurate timing, which it is to allow GPS users to know their exactly position, as long as they stay on the Earth! Thus, the Rubidium and Cesium clock generators are normally being used and maintained, so it can synchronize and generate the signals that navigator gets from the GPS satellites, where is orbiting in the range of 20,000 KM. There are many commercial systems use the same GPS signals to extract time marks or high frequency clock references with atomic-like accuracy. Thus, this … Continue reading
