Solar Powered PIC Based LCD Game

at 5:51 am. Filed under DIY Hacks, Electronic Hacks

Pyrofer has added a solar panel to his tiny PIC based game system that uses a cell phone LCD screen for the display. Now the game can be played for hours. 🙂

“I picked up a fairly large one for $40 hk and connected it up to my pic+3310lcd project. Bam, up it comes. Im going to put in a bit of power regulation and a cap to smooth things out, but the solar panel easily generates enough power for the large PIC 18LF2520 and the Nokia 3310 LCD.”
