1. Introduction


To make the characterization of our biological system we develop a lighting device which can be controlled from a computer. The goal of this device is to create red and infrared pulses of which period and duration are fixed by the user in a computer interface.



The link between computer and the microcontroller is carrying through the serial port.



2. Printed circuit board


We design the printed circuit board with Kicad a free PCB design tool. You can download Kicad at this address:
http://www.lis.inpg.fr/realise_au_lis/kicad/

Here you can download the PCB file of the circuit:


The following picture explains the different components used:




3. Microcontroller software


The microcontroller used is a Microchip pic 18F452 which is easily programmable in C language with MPLAB combined with C18 compiler.

Here you can download the hex file of the program:


And here are the source files of the soft:



4. Computer software


We develop the computer software with Microsoft Visual C++. You can download Express version at this address: http://msdn.microsoft.com/fr-fr/express/default.aspx

The following picture illustrates the software interface:



Here you can download the software:


And here are the sources files:
