    Compass controlled servo and rudder

    Thanks for the reply. No it has no sailm just an electric motor which hauls out a fishing line until the pic controller timer stops the motor. It shouldn't really be affected by wind, just strong current/rips etc but with an auto adjusting rudder eventually it should make it through the white...

    Compass controlled servo and rudder

    Hi I am trying to achieve the same as demonstrated on tuckertiki.co.nz for my kontiki It is a device that you simply point it in the direction you want it to head in then power it on at which time it locks in the heading and then as it heads out to sea as the heading changes the magnetic...

    Assembly example of a multistate switch

    So I can simply set up a 1 second delay as a subroutine and change PORTA etc to GPIO,4 and GPIO,5 in my case correct? Thanks for that, I didn't realise it would be so simple.

    Assembly example of a multistate switch

    Hi there I am doing a project of a timer device using a PIC12F683 and I am struggling to implement code to do 2 different functions for the same switch I have 2 switches, Switch A on GP4 and Switch B on GP5. I want it to work like this Switch A short press call increment timer routine Switch...

    Help with learning pic programming

    Okay ignore the above code. Its rubbish. Hi again I have reverted to assembly and started learning and trying to piece together my code I am posting here what I have got so far. It is nowhere near complete but I will take it a section at a time. I am attempting to write it so that when the...

    Help with learning pic programming

    Hi again I found some code that performs a load of the functions I require. I had to convert it to assembly from c but it didn't convert particularly well. Its mostly there but there are a few functions that didn't seem to translate very well. Such as typedef and there are a few instances where...

    Help with learning pic programming

    Thanks very much dr pepper It would be cheaper to buy one. The web site I got the idea from has pre programmed chips for $25 but where's the fun in that? I assume all those extra caps are only due to interference from the motor and would be not needed with a separate battery source? may be the...

    Help with learning pic programming

    Thanks horace1 I have seen both the links you refer to but I need something more specific. I could(and have) browsed the net for months but I need to narrow it down to specifics related to my project now. I cant seem to get my head around c yet. I have 2 books on the subject but it's not going...
