Well, I’d love to discover new thing and try something new just to learn how it work.
That’s one of the thing that I wish will remain even after growing up and being old man . 😛
So, I’d ordered some stuff from http://www.cytron.com.my at few months back.
At that time, it mainly because I need its “Programmer” connector to upgrade the firmware into one of the
chip we used in my office’s research / test component.
Instead of just ordering for the cable, I order the whole start-up kit.
Or more precisely , I bought the “Final Year Project Starter Pack 02” from cytron.com.my.
(oh..btw, I didn’t claim any single cent from the office for this one.. therefore,the whole set are rightfully mine. :P)
After the connector is no longer needed, as it was just to upgrade the firmware on one of our RnD board.
After almost a year,I opened up the box and start looking at it.
Then I thought why not just open the box and write something like.
“Writing C code,compile to HEX and getting it into a micro-controller chip with PIC18F4550″‘.
I spend first few hour to get everything hook up correctly and successfully wrote something on it.
This starter pack includes the PIC microcontoller, LED as output, push button as input, multi meter for troubleshooting and verification, programmer and bread board. A comprehensive set to start for me.
Package Include: SK40C x 1 PIC18F4550 x 1 UIC00B Programmerx 1 AC-DC Adaptor TMC-500PM x 1 Digital Multimeter x 1 Bread Board x 1 LED 3mm x 10 Push Button x 5 Jumper Wire x 5m Resistor 330R x 10 Resistor 1K x 10 Resistor 10K x 10
So, I connected everything starting with .
