DS1307 RTC Module

The module based on DS1307, The DS1307 serial real-time clock (RTC) is a low-power, full binary-coded decimal (BCD) clock/calendar plus 56 bytes of NV SRAM. Address and data are transferred serially through an I²C, bidirectional bus. The clock/calendar provides seconds, minutes, hours, day, date, month, and year information. The end of the month date is automatically adjusted for months with fewer than 31 d ...

PIC based WWVB clock

Introduction There are many DIY versions of WWVB clock designs available on the web. Commercial “atomic” clocks are inexpensive and widely available, but I wanted to try my hand at designing one to gain insight into WWVB reception and to learn a little about programming a PIC microcontroller. My version is not the simplest available, but it works well and I think it offers a few unique features. WWVB Clock ...

Rubidium Atomic Clock

Introduction In the 1970s I worked for a while for the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) at a site in Winfrith, Dorset. Amongst a lot of other interesting work, I used a gamma ray density gauge that amounted to a caesium-137 source, in its castle and collimator, the target (various), a sodium iodide detector (from memory), a photomultiplier and a series of counters using dekatrons. Having spent hours takin ...

A PIC-based Alarm clock system

This project is aimed to design a ‘Sleep and Wake-up Assistant’. Different from a normal alarm clocks which can only make noise, this alarm clock is designed to wake up a person in a comfortable and effective way by involving sound, light stimulation, motion detection and vibration. The functions of this alarm system are: ( i ). This system has an LED light. Before the user sleep in the night, the LED can b ...

PIC Based Oscilloscope Clock

For those are not into electronics, you must know that an oscilloscope has basically only one timebase to move the spot horizontally from left to right with the same intensity. The vertical deviation is function to the input voltage. You understand immediately that you can't directly display 7 segment digits, because you can't move the spot from right to left. By using X/Y mode, where the spot is controlled ...

Increasing Outputs from a Clock Source

In digital electronics, fan-out is defined as the number of gate inputs that the output of a single logic gate can feed. It is very important in digital systems for a single logic gate to drive other gates or devices. In this case, a buffer can be used between the logic gate and the devices it will drive. Clock buffer is also called as fan-out buffer. The IDT clock buffer clock divider and clock multiplexer ...

DCF77 clock-thermostat using PIC16F648A

Always at the right time your house on temperature This project make use of a PIC16F648(A) and a DCF77 receiver from Conrad (Orderno. 64 11 38) With DCF77 runs the clock from the thermostat always on the right time. Synchronizing isn't necessary anymore. The temperaturesensor is a DS1820 or DS18B20 and on a HD44780 (or compatible) 2x16 LC-Display becomes day, date, time, temperature (with 0.1°C precision) a ...
