A weblog focused on interesting circuits, ideas, schematics and other information about microelectronics and microcontrollers.

USocket - USB controlled Socket with PIC18F4550

The idea of this project is to control (switch off/on) two power sockets with a computer by using its USB port.

The firmware is based in SIXCA USBDAQ which is in turn based on microchip’s CDC sample. USBDAQ is extremely easy to use. It implements a very simple set of ASCII commands to turn on/off the digital outputs.

The whole project including PIC firmware and Eagle files is available for download. You are free to use or modify it as you like, but please verify Microchip’s CDC sample license if you plan to use it for commercial applications.
