i'll really love to build the Csele's I2k inverter project but I know nothing about Microcontrollers. Where do I start 'cos I need it fast. plz lead me to the fastest way i can learn MCs and use it

hi richmon74,
for a newbie I would recommend a small and well known µC
this could be for example:
1. Microchip PIC 16F84
you will find stuff in magazines and Internet
free assembler from microchip.com
free (!) c-compiler at htsoft.com

2. Atmel AVR
there are devices that are in system programmable (isp)
you'll find schematic and software for programmer with google

3. Industry standard Intel 8051
for example flash type Atmel 89C52, 8k for code, some bytes ram on chip

now shortform:
- read datasheet of controller
- understand ports and registers
- write small code in assembler (blinking LED)
- switch to high level language, better c than basic

don't underestimate: you will have work for months !!!

good luck
thomaz

microcontroller

thanks thomaz

but if i would have to go straight to doing the I2k project with the already available programme what will I need to accomplish it? How do I get the programme into the IC?

I've heard about assembler and compiler. what r they? software or hardware?

Hi richmon74,
I think u know electronics and softwares well?
If so u simply need followings to complite our project:
-----------------------------------
1.Hex code of the controller.
2.PCB.
3.Components in the project.
4.Soldering acessories.
5.Programmer for programming/writting the codes to the uC.
---------------------------
OR OR OR
------------------------------
1. If u have source code u need their proper compiler/assembler.
2. If u have layout of the circuit u need proper CAD software.
-----------------------------

I have Hex code, PCB, Soldering acessories.
where my problem is in the No.5, I do not no what to use in writing the program to the uC. Hardware/software?

i don't know what the compilers/assemblers are

May be you can find someone to program the microcontroller with the hex code that you have. After that, you will use the PIC like any other IC. You don't need any programming knowledge, if you don't need to change anything in the design.
