    NRF24L01+ interrupting MCU only once.

    Hi, I am using NRF24L01+ as wireless communication medium. The NRF on PRX side interrupts MCU only once for recieved data. Although it sends ACK to NRF at PTX side. And I have also seen that this NRF at PRX side "discards" data recieved, by polling the registers. Same problem was faced by one...

    [SOLVED] How current is limited in this charge controller?

    Hi, I am about to build this kind of PWM charge controller but using PIC MCU. But I am not getting how current is limited in this? In that instructable author says:"The amount of charging current is determined by difference between battery voltage and charge set point voltages". But how...

    [SOLVED] How to copy a particular char from char string to a single char

    I am trying to work with PIC and GSM communication. In that as a notification after receieving SMS GSM sends string as:+CMTI: "SM",5. So I want to copy that '5' in a char. But though copying it the value in the char becomes garbage value and not '5'. Here is the code snippet: char SMSL; // this...

    How to apply PWM signal to H-Bridge made of MOSFETS

    Hi, I am working on multilevel inverters using cascaded H-bridge topology. But I am confused on how to apply a PWM signal to H bridge for this application. As it is multilevel inverter so the signal voltage should increase step by step so PWM should be used. But I am confused that do I need to...

    [SOLVED] SIM900A responding with ERROR

    Hi, I am working with SIM900A GSM module. I was testing it by sending ""AT\r\n" but it is responding by string ERROR. I am using PIC18F452. The same code was working well with SIM300 but SIM900A is responding with ERROR. And when used with PC it is working correctly it is giving correct OK...

    [SOLVED] NRF24L01 CE and CSN pin loading PIC

    Hi, I am working on NRF24L01+(PA and LNA) version. But while experimenting with it I found that the CE and CSN pin of NRF is either loading PIC RC1 and RC2 pin. I am saying "loading" because when NRF is connected the output voltage of PIC RC1 pin(connected to CE of NRF) goes to 1.35V and same...

    How to connect two TRIACs with each other to control common load

    Hello everyone, I am trying to connect two TRIACs to control common load as a incandescent lamp. I just want to switch it ON/OFF no dimming. I also tried connecting TRIAC like normal 2 switch connection but it damaged one TRIAC(it shorted and is always ON without gate) so how can we connect 2...

    [SOLVED] Measuring Current through CT

    Hello, I am trying to measure current from CT and I am able to measure current accurately above 1A but when measuring the current less than 1A then error occurs. I am using PIC16F886 with LCD 2x16. When current goes less than 1A suppose its 250mA then on display ideally it should be 0.25A but...
