New project as we start a new topic at university. Todays subject, embedding micro-controllers. This involves designing a circuit that uses a pic as its controller. Then we programme the pic to preform a task.
In this instance our pic will be controlling a model train crossing. With working lights and motors to raise and lower the barrier.
The first stage of the project was to design the layout of the circuit. Taking in to account all the inputs and outputs that would be required for the circuit to operate correctly.
Above is the circuit digram that has been designed. The majority of the outputs are connected to a plug with will connect to the model of the train crossing. The remaining LED is used so that the circuit can be test without the need to connect to anther circuit.
The next step is the veroboard layout stay tuned!
