This site is always under construction!
Here you can find stuff I keep myself busy with when not at work! (Actually this is what I do for a living as well!) All related to electronics. I've included color pictures and some programs from my book "Complete PIC® MCU Programming and Project Guide" as well.
I am a C&IE engineer, married to Karin and have 3 kids, Chantelle, Janika and WF.
We live in Middelburg in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa.
My daytime work is in heavy industry, where I normally spend my time in management and projects.
I am a gadget dad, love my micro-controllers! I do programming, training and even workplace upgrades with them.
This is my hobby when I do have free time on hand. Use the links above to find out more!
This 967 page book covers the programming of PIC® microcontrollers in CCS C V5 in a practical hands-on approach.
It also has complete examples of all functions and circuits for you to build and use.
The PIC16F88 was used as a starting point, used here to connect various sensors.
I then move on to stuff like TFT displays, USB, GSM and GPS.
