Interfacing SD Card (FAT32 System) With PIC Microcontroller – MikroC

image-234
A memory card (also called a flash memory card) is a solid-state electronic data storage device used for storing digital information. They are commonly used in many electronic devices, including digital cameras, mobile phones, laptop computers, MP3 players and they are also widely used in data logging devices. The FAT32 library can be used for SD cards with more than 2GB of size, it lifts many constraints imposed by FAT16 file system. The key benefits is more addressable space(>2GB) and less wasted space due to smaller cluster size. This library is designed to simplify handling of the underlying hardware (SD/MMC cards), but also to be hardware independent. This library should work on any microcontroller with more than 1.5kB of RAM

Ethernet Communication with PIC Microcontroller

image-158
In this series of PIC Microcontroller Communication, after learning on how PIC Microcontroller Communication with I2C, SPI, RS232 and USB can be achieved, in this article we are going to discuss the concepts of Ethernet Communication with PIC Microcontroller. When it comes to communication involving wires, Ethernet is the leading wired standard for networking as it enables to connect a very large number of computers, microcontrollers and other computer-based equipment to each other. With just a switch, many different devices can easily communicate with one another with Ethernet, allowing devices and equipment to be accessed remotely and provides a cost-effective and reliable means of monitoring or controlling such equipment, for example a person could monitor several vending machines located in different places which can be several kilometers apart from the PC at the conform of your desk. A simple online interface to the vending machines can allow you to monitor everything from the internet.

Ethernet is the leading wired standard for networking as it enables to connect a very large number of computers, microcontrollers and other computer-based equipment to one another. With just a network switch, many different devices can easily communicate with one another with Ethernet, allowing different devices and equipment to be accessed remotely and this also provides a cost-effective and reliable means of remote control and monitoring, home automation, Internet of Things applications and many more. If you are using a microcontroller which does not have an integrated Ethernet peripheral, Microchip offers a serial Ethernet chip that can easily be used by any microcontroller with an SPI interface to provide Ethernet capability to the application. many compilers offer peripheral libraries to get you started in minutes.

The ENC28J60 is a popular 28-pin serial Ethernet chip, 10BASE-T stand alone Ethernet Controller with SPI interface, on board MAC & PHY, 8 Kbytes of Buffer RAM and an SPI serial interface. In this article we will learn how to use the ENC28J60 Ethernet controller with MikroC Pro for PIC SPI Ethernet ENC28J60 Library.

Interfacing GSM/GPRS Modem with PIC Microcontroller – MikroC

A GSM modem is a wireless modem that works with a GSM wireless network. GSM stands for Global System for Mobile communications, this architecture is used for mobile communication in most of the countries in the world. A wireless modem acts basically like the traditional dial-up modem, the main difference is that a dial-up modem sends and receives data through a fixed telephone line while a wireless modem sends and receives data through radio waves. Besides the dial-up connection, GSM modem can also be used for sending and receiving SMS which is also one of the key features of GSM modem. A GSM modem can be used in many applications including: Remote System Monitoring, Remote Controlling System, Prepaid Electricity, Home Alarm System, Home Automation, Data loggers, Vehicle tracking, etc. In this article we are going to learn the basics commands to control a GSM modem with a PIC Microcontroller, including sending and receiving an SMS using MikroC Pro for PIC.
