50 PIC Microcontroller projecten parts

<  PIC AI book parts  "PIC Microcontroller Programmeren" parts  >

The book PIC microcontrollers (book) by Bert van Dam describes 50 experiments with PICs. I offer a set containing the smaller components used in this book, and a put some other products on this page that might be usefull if jou want to do the experiments in this book. As yet, the book is available in Dutch only. First, the set of small components:

SET-COMP-PIC50BOOK-3   basic set of components for "50 PIC Microcontroller projecten"

You need a programmer to load your code into the target PIC chip. The Wisp648 is one of the many programmers available. It is avialble as kit or built. You will need a serial cable to connect a Wisp648 to your computer (you probably have one around), or lacking a serial port: an USB-to-serial converter.

K-Wisp648   Wisp648 kit: PCB, connectors, programmed 16F648, etc
A-Wisp648   Wisp648 assembled PCB
CABLE-D9M-1-8-D9F   DB9 extension cable, 1.8m, male - female

You will need a 5V supply. Note that the Wisp648 contains a 5V power supply. If you dont have one you can build a VOTI-002 (jou must add suitable wall-wart). The set (above) contains some 7805 chips, so maybe that is all you need. The 78L05 is the smaller version of the 7805, it is for up to 100mA.

VOTI-002-kit   simple 5 Volt Power Supply
IC-7805-TO220   5V regulator, 1000 mA
IC-78L05-TO92   5V regulator, 100 mA

You will need something to connect the components of your circuit. The a solderless breadboard provides an easy way to make a quick prototype. I also sell pre-cut pre-stripped wire for use in a solderless breadboard, but the wires from a multi-wire telephone cable work just as well.

T-BB-01   solderless breadboard, 55x166 mm, 830 contact points
TOOL-Wires-Set-03   wire set for solderless breadboard, 70 wires

If you want to build your circuit in a more premanent form you will have to solder it. A ring or stripes breadbord will be handy (unless you plan to make your own PCBs). And of course you will need a soldering iron. Most hobbyist seem to prefer lead-based solder, but you might try lead-free.

M-PERFBOARD-50x100   perfboard, holes at 2.54 mm, solder islands on one side
M-PERFBOARD-100x160   perfboard, holes at 2.54 mm, solder islands on one side
M-PERFBOARD-STRIPES-50x100   perfboard, holes at 2.54 mm, solder stripes on one side
M-PERFBOARD-STRIPES-100x160   perfboard, holes at 2.54 mm, solder stripes on one side
M-SOLDER-1   lead-tin solder 0.7mm, 60/40, 100gram
M-SOLDER-2   lead-tin solder 1.0 mm, 60/40, 17 gram
TOOL-IRON-01   230V soldering iron, temperature controlled

You can use a screwdriver or your fingers to pry the chips out of your breadboard or IC socket, but a simple IC puller makes the job much easier. The cut/strip tool I sell is not cheap, but I like it very much. A cheaper alternative is the red/black stripper tool you can often find in (Dutch) "bouwmarkt" shops in the 2-euro box (or whatever the day price will be). Not as good as the one I sell, but definitely good value for the money.

TOOL-IC-PULL   IC extractor
TOOL-CUT-STRIP   wire cutter and stripper
TOOL-CUT-01   wire cutter
