For the background on this project see introducing the bolt pic18f2550 microcontroller board. The resolution of our pwm signal is 10bit, that is for a value of 0 there will be a duty cycle of 0% and for a value of 1024 210 there be a duty cycle of 100%. First we will see how to configure the pwm registers to generate signals of required pwm, at the end we will see how to use the exploreemdedded pwm library. So, i decided to use some normal io pins as pwm, and searched how to do that. Pulse width modulation pwm is a technique of controlling the amount of power delivered to an electronic load using an onoff digital signal.
Microchip pic microcontrollers belongs to modern family of mcus and is being used widely in our daily life seemless manners, e. The key to creating a pic pwm is to use an interrupt from one of the timers which is used as the resolution timer for the pwm period. Dc motor speed control using pic16f84a and ccs c compiler interfacing dc motor with pic16f84a dc motor speed can be easily controlled if the microcontroller has ccp module to generate pwm pulse width modulation signal, the speed is controlled when the pwm signal duty cycle is varied and if the duty cycle is changed the power delivered to the.
