MCP7940 - scrambling a preset clock time...

Hello folks... good early morning to you all... Okay so I spent some time constructing a typical MCP7940 clock circuit on a small PCB... along with a 3V cell... for battery backup... with plainly 5 pins which simply plug into a white breadboard.. The pins are - 5V ... and GND (0V).. then SDA... SCL....

Re: 24C16 component - NOT FUNCTIONING??

Hello Leigh... REALLY... I did not know that.... The datasheets I have from ST... show that they are like "really" identical... (excepting for the size..)??? So I expected that the 24C16 component.. should just work on the 24C32... BUT only address a max of 16K... odd...??? Leigh - I ALWAY...

UART - software mode....????? what is the SECRET???

Hello --- so now I have a PIC16F688 running on internal clock at 8000000 Hz... The hardware channel for the UART... is RC4 and RC5 ... So when you connect a small circuit of RS232 chip and components to them and program a small program into the '688... you get a very good output..!! However - when y...

Hello folks... I have attached a flowchart - I used for 24C32.. which eventually I got working on 24C32..
