Updated: For a working example, please read this post next. It provides schematic and software that will display the output of the Maxim DS1620 on any Hitachi 44780-compatible LCD. I was in the shop the other day, putting some FETs away and labeling drawers when I came across a drawer full of DS1620s. I have […]

One of the first things that do in software when beginning a new implementation that utilizes the internal oscillator of a PIC micro device is check the accuracy of the oscillator. Once I’m satisfied that the oscillator frequency is as close to spec as possible, I’ll usually write this to EEPROM data to be read […]

I’ve been meaning to document project specifics as I develop in an attempt to share my software and provide an explanation as to how and why I chose a particular approach. I’d also like to provide readers with usable code that can be adapted to their own projects. Hopefully, this short article will be the […]

Having been around long enough to witness the birth of the Internet and its rapid evolution over the past few decades, I’ll be the first to advise newcomers to technology fields that one of the keys to maintaining relevance is the ability to adapt to change. While most developers that I knew in the early […]
