PICs in Space

This article describes how to build a ?Space Invaders?-type game with a total component cost of just a couple of pounds. It’s compatible with 625-line/50Hz televisions that have an RGB SCART input,uses standard retro Atari-style joystick,Accurate synchronisation waveforms, including serration and equalisation ,Full colour .[more]

LED Chaser Face

This LED Chaser Face controlled by PIC16f684 microcontroller.The LEDs follow various patterns (ie. chasing each other, flashing in unison, checkeboard flashing, etc.) It is also very easy to add your own patterns.This project is very easy to build.[more]

Dreamcast serial port adaptor

This website describes how to build an adaptor for the Dreamcast serial port that will allow you to connect it to any computer using a standard 9-pin DSUB connector. The main component is a MAX voltage converter, since the Dreamcast serial port uses CMOS (3.3V) voltage levels, whereas normal RS232 uses +/-12V levels.[more]
