MultiKey – One Wire Keypad

Introduction This is a simple and easy to make serial keypad. The microcontroller will output the number of the push button pressed. This project can be used for many different purposes. Probably the most used application would be to interface to any electronic project that requires a keypad. There are several ready made keypads on the market, but those work with matrix connections and require 7 pins for a ...

100MHz frequency counter with PIC16F628A – LCD Display

This project shows how to build a very simple yet very useful tool that every DIY enthusiast should have in his lab: a 100MHz+ frequency counter. The schematic is fairly simple and straightforward and uses a PIC16F628A microcontroller for measuring frequency and a high speed comparator for signal amplification and conditioning. The microcontroller uses its internal 4MHz oscillator for the CPU clock. Timer1 ...

100MHz frequency counter with PIC16F628A – LED Display

Couple of weeks ago I purchased from eBay one of these amazingly cheap an useful modules with MAX7219 LED driver and 8 digit LED display. It is ideal for frequency counter project. The problem was the absence of library for PIC microcontrolers. Luckily, I found a great library for Arduino and I reworked it to be compatible with PIC. The schematic of the frequency counter is actually almost the same as the p ...

USB PIC Programmer

This page is dedicated to everybody needs to program a PIC (Microchip) device via USB port. Looking on the web for ready-to-use  projects, I found a good one called Open Programmer, coming with several schematics, PCBs and Open Source code. The original link is http://openprog.altervista.org/OP_ita.html What concerned me was the need to mount, on the mainboard, a specific socket board depending on the model ...

Digital & Binary clock with thermometer & hygrometer

Here we have a clock. It’s not “another clock”. It has digital and binary output. It also has a thermometer and a hygrometer. It’s not “another thermo-hygrometer”. It display’s absolutely humidity (gr/m3) also. Schematic   MCU I build it around Microchip PIC16F917, with internal Oscillator at 4MHz. I also build a serial port programmer, so I can programming it on-line, using the DL4YHF WinPic. Clock I ...

Microcontroller Clapper Switch

Introduction I always thought the clapper so cool. For those who are lazy like me, turn on or off the bedroom light without getting out of bed, simple clap your hands is amazing. Thinking about it I projected one for me. Several projects of clappers can be found on the Internet, and most of them do not use microcontroller. I chose to use a micro planning future updates, such as turn on or off the light with ...
