Rickard's electronic projects page

Hi! My name is Rickard Gunée and I'm a 36 years old engineer from Rönninge in Stockholm in Sweden (in northern Europe). I work as a SW/HW engineer at at a medtech consultant company called HotSwap but I also like to make electronic projects at my spare time, and some of them I publish with full source code layouts and everything here om my electronics page. Now I've also opened a small web-shop where you can buy PCBs, preprogrammed MCUs, oscillators and other components if you have problems finding the parts in you local electronics shop.

I made the first version of this page in early 1998 when I released my pic-pong game, and I've added more projects contineuously since then. (By some strange reason there have been many Pong and Tetris games) Now you can read about the following:

PIC16F84 generating composite video signals in software:

  • PIC Game system - Hardware description of the system that is running pong and tetris.
  • Pong - The classical tennis-games, implemented on the PIC16F84 system.
  • Tetris - The classical russian game, implemented on the PIC16F84 system.
  • Howto - Info on howto generate videosignals with PIC-chips.
  • FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions about the PIC-based video game system.
  • SX28 generating composite color video signals in software:

  • SX Game system - Hardware description of the system that is running pong and tetris.
  • Pong - The classical tennis-games, implemented on the SX game system.
  • Tetris - The classical russian game, implemented on the SX game system.
  • Howto - Info on howto generate videosignals in color using SX-chips.
  • FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions about the SX-based video game system.
  • Mechanically scanned display stuff:

  • Virtual Game system - Hardware description of the mechanically scanned game system.
  • Pong - The classical tennis-games, implemented on the virtual game system.
  • Tetris - The classical russian game, implemented on the virtual game system.
  • Clock - A digital and "analog" clock implemented on the virtual game system.
  • RS232 Display - A text display implemented on the virtual game system.
  • FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions about the mechanically scanned gamesystem.
  • Mixed Stuff:

  • Playmobile - My master thesis project, connecting two gamesboys over GSM using Bluetooth and an AVR microcontroller.
  • AVR Color Clock - A clock using the standard resistor colors (+2) to show time with two RGB LEDs.
  • PIC Mini Dice is an electronic dice based on a PIC10F200 and built with surface mounted components.
  • Links - Well, there has got to be a links section.
