LED Interfacing

Interfacing 16X2 LCD to AVR Microcontroller Using Atmega

Well this is not different from the way interfacing the LCD to 8051 or PIC microcontroller. The crystal oscillator will provide the clock to the microcontroller. The capacitors connected to the crystal will act as filters and help the crystal to resonate and oscillates to its parallel resonate mode.  The potentiometer which is connected to …

AVR GPS Locator using avr microcontroller Using Atmega

In this project i have interfaced an GPS with AVR microcontroller, the ATtiny2313 gets the location from the GPS and display it over the LCD display. This project also have the feature of marking a place with its name. For entering the Name of the place i have used the PC-AT Keyboard. At starting the microcontroller will display the latitude and longitude on the LCD display …

Multi mode LED Matrix Clock (1)

ATTiny2313 Multi-mode LED Matrix Clock Using Atmega

This is a mutli-mode clock project based on attiny2313. it employs a 8×8 led matrix as display. with the limited resolution, this 12 hour clock shows time in 6 different modes. The circuit employs row and column multiplexing to drive the leds, one row at a time, this gives a 12.5% duty cycle when “sets” of leds (8 of them …

The Word Clock – Arduino version using ATMega168 microcontroller

Major updates – A much better enclosure for this clock has been designed – check out http://www.instructables.com/id/The-Wordclock-Grew-Up/ Last month I wanted to build a special gift for my beautiful wife, Megan.  She has a teaching background in English, so what better present to make for her than a clock that uses language to tell the time for her desk …

Binary Clock

Arduino Powered Binary Clock using ATmega168 microcontroller

This instructable will help you to build an Arduino Binary Clock.  The orignial idea for this instructable was designed by Daniel Andrade.  My instructable uses surface mount components, but can easily be adapted to through-hole components if you wish.  You can follow my other Instructable for Building Your Own Arduino to get started. I would encourage you to …
