At the heart of alarm systems, phones, microwaves, washing machines, and so much more are tiny microcontrollers telling them how to respond to certain commands. You know that episode of SpongeBob where Plankton controls SpongeBob’s brain? It’s kind of like that. These tiny computer chips are ubiquitous and keep our everyday lives running properly.
It might feel way over your head, but anyone can learn to tinker with these Programmable Intelligent Computer (PIC) microcontrollers. You just need the right training — like this
Whether you’re totally new to the game or you’re an experienced maker looking to expand your skills, this course collection has what you need to get started. There’s a complete seven-hour step-by-step guide for beginners, a course that compares PIC microcontrollers with Arduino and Raspberry Pi and shows how to use them in different projects, and a course that dives into real-time simulation of microcontrollers using different boards and schematics. You can choose how you kick off your training depending on your current skill level. And since you’ll have unlimited lifetime access, there’s no need to stress about getting it done quickly.
Inside the 13 courses, there are also a lot of hands-on projects to complete. The courses will introduce you to the different ways you can use microcontrollers. You’ll learn how to use ultrasonics and motion detectors, make an electronic door lock system and RC robot, and even program a device to be controlled by clap signals.
