2-Wire Keypad Interface Using a 555 Timer using PIC16F628A

Keypads are a very commonly used input device in microcontroller-based systems. In a keypad, multiple switches are arranged in rows and columns so that they could be interfaced to a microcontroller with a minimum number of I/O pins. For example, a 12-key keypad is arranged in a 4×3 format, which allows to interface the 12 keys to a microcontroller with only 7 connections. The location of each key on the key ...

Matrix Keypad interfacing with PIC microcontroller.

Matrix keypads are very useful when designing certain systems which needs user input. These keypads are constructed by arranging push button switches in rows and columns as shown in Fig.1. Scanning keypad to detect pressed keys involves several steps and there are several methods to achieve this. The method presented here is capable of detecting more that one key press at time and encode that information in ...
