How to make a JDM Programmer

JDM programmer is a serial Microcontroller programmer. It is used for loading the compiled source code( .hex) into the microcontroller with a DB-9 port. Its quiet easy to make. we are going to make this board for loading the code into microcontroller board pic18f4550. JDM programmer does not have a capability to program through a USB port but its quiet a cheap and easy to make at home if you don’t want to invest on costly programmer like pickit2. Its one of the easy legacy model for programming microcontroller. You can find the necessary schematic and description here to make this programmer at home with in an Hour.

Introduction To Microcontroller

What is a microcontroller ? Microcontroller in simple term refers to  a small computer on a single chip. Its like an artificial mind for any intelligent devices which is responsible for taking decisions. [eg your robot needs to take decisions, then a microcontroller would do that for us.] Microcontroller can be programmed , and has its own programming language and compilers. Hence in our robotic applications it is going to serve as a mind which will be responsible for taking all decisions.

IC 7805 Voltage Regulator

IC 7805 Voltage Regulator IC, Working, Description and Pin out Diagram

Description IC 7805 regulator:
IC 7805 is a 5V Voltage regulator IC that restricts the voltage output to 5V. 7805 comes with provision to add heat sink. The maximum value for input to the voltage regulator is 35V. It can provide a constant steady voltage flow of 5V for higher voltage input till the threshold limit of 35V. If the voltage is near to 7.5V then it does not produce any considerable amount of heat and hence no need for heatsink.
