Theme and learning goal of HackerBox 0040: HackerBox is a monthly subscription box service for DIY electronics and computer technology.
We are enthusiasts, creators and experimenters.
We are dreamers of dreams.
Invade the Earth!
Some other useful things: most importantly, you need to be adventurous, Hacker-minded, patient, and curious.
While the manufacturing and experiments of electronic products are very rewarding, they can sometimes be tricky, challenging and even frustrating.
The goal is progress, not perfection.
This hobby can bring a lot of satisfaction when you stick to it and enjoy the adventure.
Take each step slowly, pay attention to the details, and don\'t be afraid to ask for help.
In the HackerBoxes FAQ, there is a lot of information about current and potential members.
Almost all the non
The technical support email we received has been answered there, so we would like to thank you very much for taking a few minutes to read the FAQ.
The PIC series of the micro-controller is manufactured by micro-chip technology.
The name PIC originally refers to the peripheral interface controller, which was later corrected as a programmable intelligent computer.
The first part of the family came out in 1976.
2013, more than 12 billion PIC micro-controllers have been shipped.
PIC devices are popular with industrial developers and enthusiasts for their low cost, wide availability, large user base, wide collection of application notes, availability of low cost or free development tools, serial Programming and re-programming

HackerBox 0040 includes two PIC micro-controllers that are temporarily installed in ZIF (
Zero Insertion Force)socket.
The first step is to remove these two photos from the ZIF socket.
Please do it now!
The two micro-controllers are onedatasheet)
Packaged in DIP18 and PIC12F675 (datasheet)
In the DIP 8 package.
The example here uses PIC12F675, but the working principle of PIC12F675 is similar.
We encourage you to try it out in your own project.
Its small size makes it an effective solution when you only need a small amount of I/O pins.
Once the PIC is programmed (previous step)
, It can be put on a welded bread plate for testing.
Since the internal oscillator is selected, we only need to connect three pins (
Power, ground, LED).
The power module can be used to power the breadboard.
Use the pointer of the power module: After positioning the PIC micro-controller, write down the pin 1 indicator.
Pin number from pin 1 in counter-
Fashion clockwiseWire pin 5 (VSS)
To GND, pin 14 (VDD)
To 5 v, pin 2 (RA3)to the LED.
Note that the I/O pin RA3 is looping on and off in your code to flash the LED.
The longer pin of the LED should be connected to the PIC, while the shorter pin should be connected to the 1k resistor (
Brown, black, red).
The other end of the resistor should be connected to the GND rail.
The resistor is only used as a current limit, so that the LED does not look like a short circuit between 5v and GND and will produce too much current.
PICkit 3 dongle can be used to program the PIC chip-circuit.
The dongle can also power the circuit (
Bread Board target)
As we did with the ZIF goal.
The LED should now flash differently due to a change in the delay number.
For this PIC experiment, switch from internal oscillator to high
External crystal oscillator speed.
The external crystal oscillator is not only 16 MHz faster than 4 MHz)
But it\'s much more accurate.
The output can be driven using a 16x2 letter digital LCD module (data)
When connecting as shown in the figure.
C gives a simple sample program for writing text output to the LCD module.
This GPS module can determine the time and position very accurately from the signal received from the space to its small integrated antenna.
Only three pins are needed for basic operation.
The red \"power\" LED lights up when the appropriate power supply is connected.
Once the satellite signal is obtained, the Green \"PPS\" LED with the start pulse.
Power supply to GND and VCC pins.
VCC can run on 3. 3V or 5V.
The third pin required is the TX pin.
The TX pin output can capture the serial stream into the computer (via TTL-USB adapter)
Or become a micro controller.
There are many sample items to receive GPS data in Arduino.
This git repo includes pdf documentation for this type of GPS module.
Also look at u-center.
This project and video demonstrates an example of capturing high-precision dates and times from the GPS module.
