Signal Generator 20KHz
This fucntion gernerator IC is specified to work to 20 MHz. So far, this unit works nicely to 50KHz. Since I seldom need signals higher than that, it has taken up a happy home on my workbench and further development is iffy at best. There are two basic approaches to controlling the frequency in this type of device. One way is to adjust the...

Step Up PSU for LCD
To start old Optrex DMC50264N LCD module you need to get +24V LCD bias voltage Where to get it if you have only low voltage 3 5V As LCD module drains very low current, it is possible to build very small DC/DC converter. There are lots of chips designed for this. I used MC34063, as I already had few of them in some old trash boards. The schem
How LCD Display Interface Circuit works
An LCD -liquid crystal display is an electronically-modulated optical device made up of any number of pixels filled with liquid crystals and arrayed in front of a light source (backlight) or reflector to produce images in color or monochrome. The block diagram shows the LCD gets a data source from the application processor, so therefore LCD is bei
