Lately I've been enjoying taking old electronics apart to see if I can salvage any of the parts. Anyways, recently I took apart what looked to be a X10 security system "brain" or some type of central unit. Anyways, what exactly is this chip? What types of stuff could I do with it? Mainly I want to know if I could build a circuit that would allow me to program and interface it with my pc.
Here are the details and a link to the datasheet. Leon Posts: 7, The 16C54 is a very old micro-controller. You'll find it much easier to use something more modern. Ok, thanks for the confirmation that it is a Microcontroller. I really don't mind that it is old. I'm not wishing to build anything that is remotely state-of-the-art. I just wanted to use it to experiment with. When you say that there are other Microcontrollers that are easier to work with, what do you mean exactly?
Mike Green Posts: 23, You will have to do some research through Microchip's archives for datasheets, application notes, and other information on the PIC16C You will find sample programming circuits.
Start with this list: www. If it is, you will need a programmer and a UV eraser. Both can be purchased or built. Here is a very old web page of mine that might help: webspace. The core chip of the BS2 'plain' is also a 16C This is a one-time-programmable device -- so you won't be able to do much with the one you have.
I find the 16F to be a much nicer PIC platform, though even that is 'dated' now. Just be very aware, "It's the cheap man who spends the most". The intellectual value of this stuff is MUCH larger than the price you pay for the physical hardware. Sign In or Register to comment.
