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 ...

Keypad 4×5 for microcontrollers v. 1.1 using PIC16F877

What's this? The circuit here described is a simple 4x5 keypad that can be used in particular with the PIC 16F877 microcontroller, for which it has been designed considering a supply of 5V, 16F877 I/O pins leakage current, the voltage level recognized as a high or low state while in TTL or ST mode, etc.. Since this circuit is quite simple, and the resistors' value not critical, it should be suitable for oth ...

Simple Button Keypad – Microcontroller

Simple method for creating a custom button keypad that doesn't require separate hardware.  Just your microcontroller buttons a few resistors. What we have here is 9 buttons and 6 signal lines (3 inputs, 3 outputs).  The basic setup is in a grid pattern where the three input lines come down as columns (PIN0, PIN1, and PIN2),  and the three output lines come across as rows (PIN3, PIN4, and PIN5). Each button ...
