PIC Projects

 

The projects and circuits presented on these pages were created for fun and to provide functions that were not available, too expensive or too inconvenient to obtain in other ways.

 

I've made them available so that others can have the fun of making them and modifying them to match their own requirements. They are not held up as outstanding examples of elegant design, but they have been crafted with care. I welcome any feedback - feel free to e-mail me.
