Mikromedia Fan Control Project

By , November 16, 2013 6:20 pm

This weekend I put together a fan control project with a Mikromedia Workstation PIC32 development board, a DS1820 one wire temperature sensor, and a darlington solid state transistor.

The project is powered using a PIC32 microcontroller that reads the temperature sensor and updates the TFT display. When the ambient temperature in the room is over 26 degrees centigrade the PIC32 microcontroller turns on the fan.

The serial port makes it easy to monitor the temperature.

The microcontroller also outputs the current temperature and fan state using the PIC32 chip's serial port. This serial data can be read on a laptop using the Mikromedia Workstation V7 board's built in USB FTDI serial chip.

Creating Fireworks on a Mikromedia PIC32

Version 1.0 - Released June 25, 2013

In preparation for the upcoming Canada Day / Independence Day fireworks events I created a new animated fireworks firmware for the Mikromedia PIC32 development board. The example creates an animated fireworks show using VisualTFT's resource collection feature to create the animated graphics. The code was written using MikroElektronika VisualTFT and MikroC Pro for PIC32.

Celebrate any occasion with fireworks! The fireworks firmware lets you celebrate any occasion with style.

Installation

1. Install Firmware: Flash the fireworks.hex firmware file to your Mikromedia PIC32 board.

2. Install resource file: Copy the resource file fireworks.RES to the root folder of your Mikromedia board's Micro-SD memory card.

3. Enjoy the excitement of an animated fireworks show on your Mikromedia PIC32 screen.
