App note: Bit-Banging the SDI and SQI Modes of Microchip’s 23XX512/23XX1024 Serial SRAMs

Dual Mode(SDI) and Quad Mode(SQI) Serial interface are not common peripherals on many MCU today, Microchip’s app note (PDF) provides an alternative way to communicate with these SRAMs using existing GPIOs pins in bit-bang. This application note explains in detail the recommended usage of the SDI and SQI modes of operation of the Microchip 23XX512/23XX1024 […]

Open source low-speed bit bang USB interface for 8bit PICs

Low-speed USB using bit banging for small PIC16F chips, similar what the V-USB project does for AVRs: The 16FUSB is a software implementation of the USB low-speed for PIC16F628/628A microcontroller. All communication stuff is done by the firmware, completely discarding the need to use an additional chip. From the 16FUSB core is possible to add […]

Openschemes homebrew SVF player

Openschemes has a tutorial describing their project for bit bang JTAG programming of Xilinx CPLDs using their homebrew SVF player. They describe: Today’s lesson consists of the development of a bit-banged JTAG SVF player in order to program a device such as a CPLD. It’s quite likely that the SVF player we develop today could […]
