The reason I chose these chips out of the massive array of PIC microcontrollers is because it is from the cheapest range (PIC10), features a hardware PWM module and an integrated 8bit ADC. I’m always interested in […]

What on you ask? As ever, Aliexpress. I’ve devised a new project that will combine my useless need for electromechanical transport, along with […]
