Revisit: 8bits

Posted on Wednesday, January 19th, 2011 in Uncategorized by SQKYbeaver

last week we asked, what microcontroller architecture do you use most?

Many of our projects use 8 bit pic18 series micros, clearly a workhorse of our projects. But with only 16 votes total, our poll is probably not representative of the larger community. We have recently seen a audio spectrum analyzer using a pic18f4550. What kind of 8 bit hacks have our audience come up with? Send us a picture and a description of what you have been working on.

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?
  • KH: Agree, so okay, I guess he must have learned from somewhere. 100nF and 1000uF is so far apart, that was jarring; it's more magic incantation...
