How to Begin Building Your Own Computer

Posted by in Development Boards, Development Tips, Guides

We decided to write a separate post on how to build your own computer. As this is an embedded development website, including as much information about all fields of computing is important. We at Paltronix hope you find this piece informative and come visit us at our local shop to purchase development products!


To begin building your own computer, you will need to gather the right components. There are build guides available online which offer component lists for a variety of “build your own” computers. We recommend choosing a build guide, such as this popular list to find a gaming PC under $500. and then shopping around online (or in your own community) in order to gather high-quality components for great prices. Once you have your supplies, you’ll be ready to get the job done!

We recommend clearing a flat surface, such as a larger desk or kitchen table, which gives you ample room for boxes and parts. Before you unbox your components, you should should be aware of one risk. It’s static electricity. There is a way to avoid the risk, and this is purchasing a wristband which is anti-static. When you wear it, you’ll be grounded at all times. We think that everyone who builds their own computers should invest in these wristbands.

Also, you should choose footwear that has rubber soles. Another tip on avoiding static electricity is to work on your computer build in a room that has non-carpet flooring. Rugs stir up a lot of static electricity. When you do open boxes that contain your components, you’ll notice that most of them come in bags with anti-static properties. Keep them in these bags until you need them.

Open Your Case First


Getting the case ready is probably the simplest part of building a new computer. Put the case on your flat surface and take away its side panel. This panel’s removal will allow you to get into the case. Usually, the panel is located on the left-hand side. In addition, you should take away things that are hanging inside of the case. If something is affixed to the case, on the inside, move it out of the way.

Now, you’ll need to put your power supply into the case. It’s known as PSU for short. This component is usually situated on the back of a case, in an uppermost corner or on the bottom. You should see a slot with a square shape. This is the slot for the power supply. The slot will feature screw holes on two or more corners and the power supply unit will rest inside of it, with its female socket and switch facing in an outward direction. If you need more help, look at the manual which came with your case. It should show you exactly where the PSU needs to go.

After you take care of this, it will be time to install the computer’s processor. This is a more complex operation. However, plenty of people do it themselves and you can, too. Be sure to read lots of tips on installing a computer processor before you begin. This guide by Super Micro should help. When you educate yourself, you’ll have more confidence. You’ll know exactly what to do and what not to do!

MikroBASIC for PIC Compiler

Posted by in Compilers, PIC Compilers

Ordering Information

Order Code: MIKROBASPIC
Manufacturer: MikroElektronika
Availability: In Stock
Price: £99.00

Overview

The mikroBASIC for PIC Compiler is a powerful feature-rich development tool for PIC microcontrollers in the PIC12, PIC16 and PIC18 families. It is designed to provide the user with the easiest possible solution for developing applications for embedded systems without compromising on performance. Its highly advanced integrated development environment (IDE), broad set of library routines, ready-to-run and comprehensive documentation should be more than enough to get anyone off to a great start when developing PIC applications.

Features

  • Advanced code editor to aid in the writing of source code.
  • Included libraries covering communications, data acquisition, displays and much more dramatically speed up development.
  • Code explorer allows you to monitor your program’s structure, variables and functions.
  • Generates commented, human-readable assembly language files and HEX files compatible with any PIC programmer.
  • Integrated simulator lets you inspect program flow and debug executable code.
  • Provides real-time debugging on a hardware level when using MikroElektronika’s EasyPIC5, BIGPIC5 and LV18FJ development boards and PICFlash2 and 18FJprog programmers with MikroElektronika’s mikroICD in-circuit debugger.

Code Editor

mikroBASIC’s code editor is an advanced text editor fashioned to satisfy the needs of professionals. Advanced editor features include adjustable syntax highlighting, code assistant offering an auto-complete function, auto-correction of common typos, the ability to comment/uncomment a block of code with single mouse-click and bookmarks that can be set to aid navigation through even the largest program code.

Code Explorer/Quick Help/Keyboard Shortcuts

To the left of the main window area a pane contains mikroBASIC’s code explorer, quick help and keyboard shortcuts tabs.
The code explorer tab provides a clear view of every declared item within the source code and from here you can jump to the declarations of those items.
The quick help tab lists all the available built-in library functions as a helpful reference.
Finally, the keyboard shortcuts tab lists all available keyboard shortcuts that may be used within mikroBASIC.

Simulator

The source-level debugger is an integral component of the mikroBASIC development environment and has been designed to simulate the operations of Microchip Technology’s PIC microcontrollers to assist users in the debugging of their programs. The simulator simulates program flow and execution of instruction lines, although not operating in real-time it does not update timers, interrupt flags, etc.
Once you have successfully compiled your project, you can run the simulator allowing you to carry out operations such as single-stepping code and running the code to a cursor position.
A simulator watch window enables you to monitor program variables and registers of the PIC with their values updated as you carry out simulation operations. Values changed as the simulation progresses are coloured red to clearly identify them. You can also edit values of variables and registers during the simulation process.
A stopwatch window is also provided for use when simulating to calculate the processor cycles and execution time since the last debugger action.
A view RAM window acts in a similar manner to the watch window and shows the contents of RAM, again with recently changed values highlighted in red and with the ability to manually change values.

mikroICD In-Circuit Debugger

mikroBASIC supports real-time debugging on a hardware level when used in conjunction with MikroElektronika’s EasyPIC5, BIGPIC5 and LV18FJ development systems and PICFlash2 and 18FJprog programmers. This works in a similar way to the simulator described above but instead of the PC simulating a PIC, the code is actually downloaded to the target PIC. As with the simulator you can step through code and run to breakpoints. Information on variable, register and memory contents within the PIC is sent back to the PC for display in the watch and RAM windows.

Supported PICs

The following list gives the PICs currently supported by the mikroBASIC PIC compiler in numerical order. As new releases of the compiler are launched support for newer PICs is continually added and once you have purchased mikroBASIC for PIC you always have access to the latest compiler releases.
