18F4550 USB Interface
Category: USB Circuits

This article contains information about getting a USB interface working between an 18F4550 PIC and a PC using C# .NET 2.0, using the Microchip-supplied driver mpusbapi.dll. In this article, the PIC is configured using some (slightly modified) demo code originally for the PICDEM FS USB demo board, in which it is configured as a generic class device, with one IN + OUT interrupt endpoint. The device is set up with a bootloader, allowing the PIC to be programmed through software after the initial programming.




18F4550 USB Proto Board
Category: USB Circuits

This board is a Microchip PIC prototyping board for the 18F4550 microcontroller using USB. It is designed to have the PIC loaded with a USB bootloader and then a separate programmer is no longer needed. The board has all the circuitry needed for a successful USB interface. Free I/O pins have 1-3 solder pads for easy connection for prototyping. This board is based on the one I use for all my own USB experimentation, and is compatible with the firmware and software in my 18F4550 USB Interface article, my PIC USB Bootloader article, and others. It should also work fine for other PIC USB interfacing projects, such as HID or CDC (virtual COM port) applications.

Control stepping motor via USB interface
Category: USB Circuits

This is an example that demonstration how to control some devices via USB interface.The PC software program with delphi. Feature: - CPU PIC18F4550 with full speed USB interface at 48MHz. - USB 2.0 compliance - Use on-chip USB driver - Control 1 stepping motor. - MPLAB C18 for firmware at USB devices side. - Delphi 6 for PC Host software. USB devices side Figure 1. is the schematic for this example.PIC18F4550 is the main devices that communicate with PC and control stepping motor. The power supply came from +5V Vbus for circuit except +Vmotor which must use external power supply that depend on stepping motor requires. If you add more components into circuit that drawn total current more than 250mA you should be use +5V external power supply instead Vbus.Becuase Vbus can supplies current not more than 250mA and don't forgot to disconnect Vbus out of circuit.

USB LED Load
Category: USB Circuits

The board supports driving two separate tri-color LEDs. More can be setup inline if desired. Currently the software only uses the second LED and its color represents the CPU load of the system in real-time. Blue for idle and gradients light blue, green, yellow, orange, and finally red indicating heavy CPU utilization. If the system fails to respond, the LED begins flashing RED to indicate a lack of communication from the software. This lets you easily identify a crashed machine in a rack for example.

USB Relay Board
Category: USB Circuits

Here's the new 6 channel USB relay card for switching different appliances, lamps or motors by a computer program via the USB interface. There are certain switching sequences can be programmed via computer. The card was dispensed on SMD technology and is thus the ideal craft project for beginners and novices. Those who do not always wanted with his computer what Steruern. This can be done with the help of a web application even over the Internet. About the SPI connector could even imagine the relay card to cascade with other relay boards. The relays max. 250V AC and have a switching current of 8A (depending on the used relay). Furthermore also 4 inputs, which are separated optocouplers, and monitors can be queried. AVR simulates a USB RS 232 interface can thus this relay, the card without problems using a terminal program or other software to be easily addressed. The USB driver in the AVR firmware was developed by Objective Development ( http://www.obdev.at/products/avrusb/projects-de.html ) and under the GPL2. Through this USB driver could have very special devices and SMD technology abandon. Her come out is a very compact board with dimensions of 100mm x 85mm. The setting of the simulated serial port is: 9600 baud, 8Datenbits, no parity and 1 stop bit further handshaking. To power supply reaches a normal 9 - 12V power supply.

This is really plug and play.




USB to RS232 Adapter with FT232
Category: USB Circuits

We employ two UART boards in the course, one which can be connected to the serial connector of the PC (UART-RS232), and a second that can be connected to a USB port (UART-USB). The former is used in the lab and is part of the standard take-home equipment. The latter is part of the (limited!) number of take-home targets for students who are working on a Laptop without serial connector. In both cases, communication is done with the UART module of the microcontroller. In the case of the normal UART board, the MAX232 simply transforms the voltage levels to RS-232 standards (± 3-15V; in our case 12V, with LOW=+12V and HIGH=-12V). In case of the UART-USB, the FT232BM transforms the UART protocol to the USB protocol. This is transparent to the controller, which communicates over the normal TX and RX pins.




USB to RS232 Converter
Category: USB Circuits

Why build my own USB to RS232 converter when there are adapters already available from many suppler? The Answer is simple: Neither the strand "USB to RS232 converter" actually worked *properly* with all the devices I tried. But, They did not seem to support ALL the RS232 lines. The USB to RS232 converter using the FT8U232AM and a Maxim-IC MAX235




USB to RS232 Dongle
Category: USB Circuits

With serial and parallel ports being phased out on new computers, hardware designers and hobbyists have no choice but to convert the USB port back to RS232 serial. FTDI have a very nice chip that does just that, the FT232AM. This chip converts USB to a standard high-speed serial port. The bonus with FTDI is the drivers are already written for you. All you have to do is design the hardware and download the serial USB drivers from FTDI's web site.
