Lilliput auto video switching for reversing camera
I have been reading a lot of posts about the Lilliput not being able to `auto switch` even though it is in the secret menu, so I decided to make a..
Build your own LC-Display
For the wiring of the display we first of all take the ribbon cable and solder it according to the following circuit diagram on the 25 pin sub-d (parallel port) plug, whereby in my small circuit diagram I described the rear side - consequently the solder side of the plug:
HD44780 Character LCD Displays Tutorial
Interfacing with a HD44780 compatible display using some DIP switches and a few other components. The module that we are using is a 16 character x 2 line display that we stock over here. It uses an ST7065C controller, which is HD44780 compatible. The figure below shows the LCD module and pinout. The circuit diagram below shows the LCD module...
16x2 LCD Display Custom Characters Circuit
The schematic for this tutorial can be seen drawn out below. It includes everything you`d need to wire up for the tutorial to work. PIC programming circuitry is not included in the schematic as I`m assuming either you`re programming the PIC out of circuit or can add the few elements into the circuit on your own for in-circuit programming. The 16x
BINARY DECIMAL LED DISPLAY VERSIONS OF THE SIMPLE FREQUENCY COUNTER
There are other display methods than the original 8 led frequency counter has. They are perhaps easier to read and may have a format that fits better to the front of your QRP equipment. Here some examples of binary decimal displays are given. Mostly the the counter is made without the MHz position, only the kHz position is used to read the VFO fre
LED display unit
For a couple of recent projects we have been asked to provide interesting and informative display units. We decided to build a unit which can be used in a number of different applications. It was designed to look good, be able to show graphics and text, have a couple of switch inputs and be configurable for a variety of uses. The end result was so

4 Direct drive LCD display circuit diagram
Each part of LCD has individual counter, latch, decoder and driver. Pumping signal feeds back to the motherboard of LCD. When the display section is disconnected, the phase and amplitude of the motherboard and display segment drive signal are the same. It shows no voltage on the 2 ends of display. When the display segment is triggered, its...
High resolution dithering bar graph display
This circuit is an improved version of the Fig. 3-28 display, using a triangular-wave oscillator. With RA properly set, each incremental change in VIN can be detected because the glow from each LED can be made to spread gradually from one device to the next. If the signal-source impedance is high or not linear, false readings might occur. In this
SI ABBREVIATION DISPLAY
Programmed Signetics 8223 256-bit PROM is used as alphameric display having five 7-segment digits connected to form alphameric simulation of abbreviations for second, millisecond, microsecond, hertz, kilohertz, and megahertz as SEC, SEC-3, SEC-6, H2, H2 3, H2 6. Binary counter U3, 4-16 line decoder, and 5-digit parallel-connected Hewlett. Packard d

Ultrasonic distance finder circuit
The circuit described here uses ultrasonic oscillations and operates based on the propagation velocity of these oscillations in the air. Thus, we can easily determine the distance of two points if the time within which the wave travels this distance is measured. There are three main categories of distance measurement methods in use: a) By...
Simple Metal detector circuit with CD4030
Sometimes the precious metals are hidden too deep and are not detected except with complicated devices. In many cases, however, small pieces of precious metal buried near the surface can be detected by relatively simple means. Everyone is very attractive to find something potentially valuable, hidden a few centimeters below the soil. So many...
Fully automatic watering circuit for flower pots
Many times for various reasons we forget or can not water the plants that we have in our homes. And many humidity sensors units just notify us with a beeping sound or with a flashing light, that the pot needs watering. But what if we are away from home? This circuit comes as a solution to this problem. Depending on humidity of the pot at...
Simple deep searching metal detector circuit
The principle behind a metal detector is really very simple. Proof of this is the circuit that follows, in which it proves that the construction of a metal detector can be done in the minute, with few components that we find very easily everywhere. With the circuit of this metal detector, it is possible to detect a metal coin in depth of 90 to...
Sub-Harmonic Bass Converter for Electric Guitars
The sub-harmonic bass generator is a sound producing unit for guitars. The sound it produces looks very much like that of the bass guitar. The octave generator is sometimes quite unusual since it does not produce any of the usual ways of coloring the sound, such as filtering or distortion. Instead, a frequency division system produces outputs...
Echo Depth Sounding Sonar for Boats
In the past the sounding (sea bottom measurement) was done with the "bullet", that is, with a heavy lead object that the seamen plucked into the sea hung from a calibrated rope. As soon as the "bullet" reached the bottom, the depth appeared directly from the calibration of the rope. This arrangement still exists in some yachts. The big...
100W HiFi Audio Amplifier Circuit
This Amplifier was designed to have the following specifications: Distortion less than 0.1% at full power of 100W even at 20KHz. Power has to be attributed to an extended bandwidth. The output transistors must be protected against short circuits. The power supply must be symmetrical so that no electrolytic capacitors are needed at the outlet....
Plant-Pot Water Level Indicator Circuit
A series of LEDs serve to alert the gardener when plants need water. Using two conventional digital integrated LEDs and a series of LEDs, we make a very useful device for gardening. The device detects the amount of water in the pot and alerts the grower. The circuit of the device is shown in Figure 2. The water detection is made from the bottom...
Analogue Sound Preasure dB-Meter Circuit
The best human ear can capture sounds from 20Hz to 20KHz. These limits are known to be the broadest that can exist. Normally the normal limits range from 100Hz to about 13KHz and depend on the age and health of the individual. We for our measurements and to have a good accuracy we will get the limits of 20Hz to 20KHz. A sound to be heard does...
