Group meets at 5:30pm - 2nd Tuesday each month. Visitors welcome.THE PIC CLUB
The PIC Club is the current format of the Programming Special Interest Group of
the Sydney PC User Group
A PIC is a Programmable Integrated Circuit, or microprocessor.
We discuss programming, particularly PIC programming, and project design.
The PIC Club meets at 6pm, on the second Tuesday of each month.
1st Floor, Sydney Mechanics School of Arts,
280 Pitt Street, Sydney.
Come and show your projects, or see some others. We have a computer with a projector, so bring along your project on a floppy or LCD and we'll project it on a screen. We have a broadband internet connection, so discussion can be wide ranging. For more information about the club, phone Neville on 9593 1025.
At our June meeting Lino demonstrated his technique of soldering surface mounted components using a soldering iron and Xcelite tweezers, and making use of surface tension and gravity. Martin gave away a large quantity of exotic electronic components.
Alex showed a PCB he made using the Press n Peel technique. View a typical demonstration video of Press n Peel here. Andrew showed a mother board and instructions he found of a Forth computer he intends to revive.
Stuart directed us to his recently uploaded 16-bit widget driver at www.hydrazoic.info. It is an embedded script interpreter that runs in dsPic microcontrollers, and has a serial port, 14 in/out, and two analogue lines. It has a minimal footprint and runs on a small single-sided pcb.
