Segment ASCII table character Set

7-Segment ASCII character Set A 127-character ASCII table for 7-segment LED or LCD displays using PIC16C84

I started to develop what I call my “next generation of microcontroller projects” (I have to find a name for that), so I needed a character set fully compatible with ASCII using only 7 segment displays. When I started to determine how many characters and which ones I will use, I thought only 64 characters …

INCUBATOR-TEMPERATURE-REGULATOR

INCUBATOR TEMPERATURE REGULATOR

The Incubator Temperature Regulator is made on a breadboard to demonstrate how to program and set the temperature of the regulator. It uses an LM35 temperature sensor, a serial LCD made with a PIC16F628A microcontroller and an Arduino Nano. The low & high setpoint is configurable to maintain the temperature range. An LED is used …
