Week 3 - Design ---> Edit ---> Construct!

Throughout this week, I only focus on constructing PIC circuit. Of course it is not as easy as A, B, C but since I seek helps from my friends, I am able to construct the PIC circuit within one week. At first I doubt that the PIC circuit will work correctly, but after a few try and error, I finally success in constructing it. The circuit works fine and hopefully there will be no error afterwards. This PIC circuit is to interface the RFID reader with the computer and display at the LCD like a date, time and name of the student.
Below is the PIC 16F877A circuit:

Week 2 - Sketch a tech!

Starter of week 2 on September semester do quite a job to me. I have to focus on my current subject while doing my progress on my final year project. After finally found all the component for my project, I would like to start on working for my project design. There will be two (2) design produced for this project. One is circuit design while the other one is hardware design. The reason why I started designing first is because I want to systematically completing my project towards the end.
These are all the main component for my project:

RFID Reader



PIC 16F877A


UART Converter


Below is the sketching of the casing of the project:

Week 1 - Searching the components

The next semester of the Final Year Project have arrived. By the title of the project that I have got, "Development of RFID Students Attendance Management System", this week I make some research about this project components whatever it is available or not. Finally, all the component that I want and will use on my final year project is available, so that there will be no problems about searching my components. These are some component list that have been searched:
1 - LCD 4X4
2 - PIC 16F877A
3 - PCB board
4 - UART converter
5 - RFID reader
6 - RFID tags
