Pi Camera Module

The Pi camera module is a portable light weight
camera that supports Raspberry Pi. It communicates with Pi using the
MIPI camera serial interface protocol. It is normally used in image
processing, machine learning or in surveillance projects. It is commonly
used in surveillance drones since the payload of camera is very less.
Apart from these modules Pi can also use normal USB webcams that are
used along with computer.

ESP32 BLE Server – GATT Service for Battery Level Indication

Wireless Headphones, Fitness bands, Bluetooth Speakers, In-Ear headphones, Mobile phones, Laptops… there are so many Bluetooth devices around us and most of these devices are battery operated. Have you ever wondered that, when you connect a Bluetooth device to your mobile phone how it automatically understands that the connected device is a computer or audio device or a mobile phone? For some devices our phone might even automatically shows the battery percentage of the connected device on the notification bar. How does all this happen on their own? There should be some common protocol shared between the phone and the Bluetooth device right!

Heart Beat Monitoring using PIC Microcontroller and Pulse Sensor

Heart Beat rate is most important parameter in monitoring any person’s health. In the modern era of wearable devices, there are lot of devices which can measure heartbeat, blood pressure, footsteps, calories burnt and lot of other things. These devices has pulse sensor inside them to sense the pulse rate. Today, we will also use a pulse sensor with PIC Microcontroller to count heart beat per minute and the Inter-Beat Interval, these values will be further displayed on 16×2 character LCD. We will use PIC16F877A PIC microcontroller in this project.

What is PWM

What is PWM

While ADC is used to read Analog signals by a digital device like microcontroller. A PWM can be considered as an exact opposite of it, PWM is used to produce Analog signals from a digital device like microcontroller. In this article we will learn about what is PWM, PWM signals and some parameters associated with it, so that we will be confident in using them in our designs.

Thermal Printer interfacing with PIC16F877A

In this tutorial, we will interface a thermal printer CSN A1 with widely used PIC microcontroller PIC16F877A. Here in this project, a thermal printer is connected across PIC16F877A and a tactile switch is used to start the printing. A notification LED is also used to notify the printing status. It will glow only when the printing activity is going on.
