Jesus,

Today I found a 32KHz crystal and has soldered it to the prototype board.
So now you can select from software if to run from the 16MHz crystal
or from 32KHz crystal. I will write some software to test both crystals.
Will make the software soon and test on the board and then ship it to you.

GL.

Thank you @groundloop!!!!!!!

I am very, very happy and eager to learn microcontrollers.

Jesus,

Yes, micro controllers can be used to many different tasks. Very versatile.

Today I did make the software for the 16MHz version. I did discover a fault
when measuring on the board. When I did build the board then I soldered
the 5 volt regulator the wrong way around. So I have been running the mcu
at almost 9 volt. I will solder in a new 5 volt regulator tomorrow and also
make the software for the 32KHz version. I hope to get the board mailed
in a couple of days time.

GL.

Groundloop:

What about the Arduino?  I have been reading a lot about them and it seems a lot of folks modify them with programming to do some amazing things.  I know nothing about it but was curious to see if you have heard of it.

The folks at http://hackaday.com/ show many cool projects using this and, I think it is just a micro controller of some kind but I am not sure.

Hi Bill,

There are many different sorts of micro controllers and also boards with mcu.
I prefer to build my own designs around a micro controller. Other people prefer
to buy boards and take it from there. It is all about a choice really. I did choose
the PIC series micros to play with.

Regards,
Groundloop.

Jesus,

The two software versions (one for 16MHz and one for 32KHz) is now done and tested.

I will ship the prototype board with the 32KHz version installed on the PIC16F88.

The board will be snail mailed to you tomorrow. Can you PM me a email address so
that I can email you the software and documentation package? The files are a little to
large to be uploaded here on the forum.

Groundloop.

Good luck with this board, I think it looks and sounds great.  Groundloop is one of our very smart guys and I am looking forward to seeing what you can do with this.

Jesus,

The board went as air mail today. So you should have in a week or so.
I have emailed you the software and documentation.

Bill,

Thank you for the nice words. :-)

I am very happy with @groundloop help.
I have now a long journey ahead, reading all the documents and learning eagle, Mplab-Ide and assembler.

Thank you @groundloop!!!!!

I received your email with the software documents and the links for Eagle, Mplab-Ide and its lots of megabytes of information.

Again as I wrote on an email to you. I will at least read three pages daily in order to grasp an understanding of microcontrollers and assembler.

Also I will do my best efforts with Eagle and Mplab-Ide softwares.
Looking at all the information I realize that I have a long journey in order to learn.

For the benefit of the free energy community. This is a graphic that has a way of knowing what to write to address a specific pin from the picf628A using binary and basic.

The programs are using the different ports of the microcontroller to drive an alternator.
I corrected the direction of the 0s and 1s on the previos program using portB.

The two programs work individually, one uses portA and the other portB.

The 0 among the 7 ones is to tell the microcontroller to use that pin as the led output.
But it does not have the program code to turn Led on.
When I learn more I will include it.

I must say here that the information for the picf628A was supplied by @x-enrgy last year on another thread.

Hi! I just bought Arduino UNO board with 16 MHz 8-bit AVR micro-controller. I did some programming 'back in the days' in assembler but recently I learned some C language and I can make thing work. I am in the process of building my own project but I am willing to try some of the designs presented here, so I am in!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8g8MgOc8gyY - my second day with the board (sorry no subtitles - it was a quickie) :D

Welcome @kehyo77!

It seems that you have something good working there.
There was a car on a tv series that has some lights on the front that worked on the way your lifgrs are behaving.

I could not understand what you were explaining on your video, but I am sure that someone on the forum understood what you explained.

About the arduino. When I was researching for a microcontoller board last year I discovered that the arduino needed a lot of other boards to work properly, or so I understood and I did not buy it.

I chose another one but it was the same thing. You need to keep buying other boards in order to make the first one to work and I could not completed my goal of getting OU or a self running motor.

Then came @groundloop and is helping me now. I hope that this time I get at least a self running motor for the benefit of us all.

The Arduino UNO board is great. You don't have to buy additional hardware to get started. I works out of the box just plug it in, install IDE and you can download your program to the device via USB. It is really easy. The LED chaser example in my video is from a book "Beginning Arduino" which I highly recommend for a start. You can directly hook up logic level MOS-Fets to any of the pins to control things and you can sample feedback using analog input pins. Programming in C is not complicated, once you get your head around it, and making changes in your code is quick and straightforward. There are PWM outputs as well so you can pecisely set the pulse duration an trigger it with a feedback input.
