Hello World

A project log for Universal Glucometer

Did your test strips just get more expensive? Has the drug store run out of strips for YOUR meter? Like to be able to use any test strip?

Taking a step back I decided I needed to ensure my programmer (PICkit3 clone) actually works and that I can actually upload programs. When I ordered the last LCD screen I also got a few PIC16F877A chips since I have some books that use them for learning to code in C for PIC's.

It's taken me a few days of reading, trial, and error but I've finally gotten an LED to blink (pretty impressive right!).

Next step is attaching and sending text to a standard 16x2 LCD.
