System requirements

● Windows PC (2000, XP, Vista, 7)
● USB type A to Mini-B cable

Development toolchains

● Altium TASKING™ VX-Toolset
● Atollic TrueSTUDIO®
● IAR, Embedded Workbench® for ARM
● Keil, MDK-ARMTM

Demonstration software

 The demonstration software is preloaded in the board’s Flash memory. It uses the MEMS
motion sensor to blink the four LEDs according to the motion direction and speed.
Connecting the board to a PC with a second USB 'type A to micro-B' cable converts it into a
standard mouse, and board motion controls the PC cursor.
The latest versions of the demonstration source code and associated documentation can be
downloaded from www.st.com/stm32f4-discovery.

PIC Microcontroller Based Electronic Lock

Circuit Diagram

Security is a prime concern in our day-today life. Everyone wants to be as much secure as possible. An access control for doors forms a vital link in a security chain. The microcontroller based digital lock for Doors is an access control system that allows only authorized persons to access a restricted area. An electronic lock or digital lock is a device which has an electronic control assembly attached to it. They are provided with an access control system. This system allows the user to unlock the device with a password. The password is entered by making use of a keypad. The user can also set his password to ensure better protection. The major components include a Keypad, LCD and the controller PIC16F877A. This article describes the making of an electronic code lock using the 16F877A microcontroller.
The system is fully controlled by the 8 bit microcontroller 16F877A which has a 8Kbytes of ROM for the program memory. The password is stored in the EPROM so that we …

PIC Serial Communication Tutorial (UART)

First, a quick history of RS232. What is RS232? It's just a name for a standard that has propagated from generation to generation of computers. The first computers had serial ports that used RS232, and even current computers have serial ports (or at least USB ports that act like RS232 ports). Back in the day, serial information needed to be passed from devices like printers, joysticks, scanners, etc to the computer. The simplest way to do this was to pass a series of 1s and 0s to the computer. Both the computer and the device agreed on a speed of information - 'bits per second'. A computer would pass image data to a printer at 9600 bits per second and the printer would listen for this stream of 1s and 0s expecting a new bit every 1/9600 = 104us (104 micro-seconds, 0.000104 seconds). As long as the computer output bits at the pre-determined speed, the printer could listen.
Zoom forward to today. Electronics have changed a bit. Before they were relatively high power, high …
