take a minute to read through this page to see if your query is
already answered or isn't something I will help with before
don't want to discourage anyone from contacting me with a specific
project related query. However the site now attracts a lot of
queries and many of them are really generic which would be better
asked on a forum site, two good forums are:
About Circuits, and
Most questions have already been asked before so a few minutes
can often get you the answer.
Picprojects site is aimed at hobbyist and enthusiast with some
knowledge of electronics and/or microcontrollers.
want to modify a project to incorporate into some idea of
your own please don't ask me if the project will do what you want.
I can't know the skills you have, your experience or the technical details of
what you are trying to do. You need to study the extensive
information on the project page and decide for yourself if it meets
your needs. If you need help with your decision, please ask
for advice on a
forum site like
to some common questions that I have been asked before:
Why is it all free?
I'm a student, will you help me with my course / project?
No. Join a forum website and ask for help there.
The site below is very good.
All About Circuits

Get in touch, I'll
help resolve any problems with kits bought from me. See
contact email address at the bottom of this page.
got a question about one of your projects.
Many of the questions I receive
have been asked before and the project pages have already been
updated to include the additional information. Therefore please take time to read the project page
all the way through
first to double check the answer isn't already there.

need a circuit to do something specific. Which
one of your projects will do it?
The best person to
answer that is you since you know what you want. All the
technical details are on the project page, if you need help
interpreting that please post to a forum site such as:
trying to develop my own project / modify your code will you
you develop a project for me / Can you write some code for me?
Sorry no. I don't customise code
or write bespoke code.
If you want help I'd recommend you ask on a forum site. The site linked
below has some very knowledgeable people
forum and are willing to offer help and advise.
I'm prepared to pay you to write code or design hardware.
Thanks but no thanks. When someone pays you to do what
they want it's no longer a hobby it's employment and that takes
the enjoyment out of it for me.
If you're prepared to pay there are businesses out there that
will develop a project for your so I'd advise you to find one
and contact them.
you modify a project already on the website?
Sorry no. Writing and developing the
projects and software takes a lot of time. What may seem like a
simple modification or improvement is often very complex to
actually implement. Therefore I do not
undertake custom modifications to projects as I do not have the time.
Got this far and still think you need to contact me?
