16 Step Sequencer Quantized Vari-Clock Module
A mechanism by which a normal pot could be used as a digitized pot since I need each pot`s setting to be converted to a number between 0 and 15. I use that information to determine the duration for each step. I accomplished this by designing an analog to digital convertor that could take a pot`s position and convert it to a number between 0 and...
Nixie Clock 2
The clock is constructed on two boards; one carries the HT generator and the processor logic, the other the tubes. Thisallows a slightly more compact design that the previous effort, but didn`t save as much real estate as I`d hoped. The tubes are mounted on a DIP 0. 3" grid. This isn`t ideal, but it has the advantage that the tube legs are...
nixie tube clock circuit
The nixie tube clock consists of a high voltage power supply, seven rings counters and an Atmel AVR processor. The power supply is shown in schematic Schematic 1. It takes 12 volts AC and converts it to DC which drives the Maxim 1771 switching power supply to generate 160 volts. The Maxim 1771 operates by effectively shorting the 12 volts DC to
Custom Fan Controller
This is the circuit diagram for each individual channel; Note: I replaced the 0. 1 uF timing capacitor with a 100 pF capacitor for better operation, with the 0. 1 uF capacitor in place, the fans would growl when turned down to slower speeds and the 100 pF capacitor resolved that problem. This is the circuit diagram for each individual channel;...

Clock Controller circuit
The Clock Controller was designed to be an exemplary of using `C` language to control timer0 interrupt, 7-segment LED and keypad scanning. It provides 1-bit sink current driving output, for driving a relay, opto-triac, say. Many projects requiring 7-segment display and keypad interfacing may get the idea from the Clock circuit and software. Fi
Propeller-powered IN-12 Nixie Clock
After building so many Nixie Tube Clocks from the Internet, I finally decided to design my own. My clock uses IN-12 Nixie Tubes and an 8-core Propeller Microcontroller. The Propeller may a be a bit of overkill for the task, but it`s the microcontroller that I`m most familiar with an is easy to program. A Dallas 1302 RTC chip is used for accurate t
Microcontroller Clocking a Transmitter?
The core of any transmitter is usually an oscillator circuit, and in simple transmitters (i. e. , QRSS devices), it`s often a crystal. Frequency adjustment is accomplished by adjusting capacitance to ground on one of the crystal legs. Simple oscillators such as the Colpitts design (based on an NPN transistor) are often used. (pictured) However...
Line Ripple Clock
This circuit converts the ripple from a wall wart supply to a clean Line x 2 digitial clock. Doing it this way eliminates the need to put AC into the unit which then has to be rectified and filtered just to have access to the line frequency sine wave.

USB Live Oscilloscope: Clock Generator
Produce the varying sampling clock write strobe pulses. So, I settled with this semi-optimal but working design applying an ATtiny2313 microcontroller from Atmel. For a 10MHz sampling clock, I need a 20MHz clock for the ATtiny2313and hence it needs to be powered at 5V instead of 3. 3V like all the other logic around. So, I had to add these HCT04...
Precision Clock Generator
The device presented here can generate a complementary clock signal at frequencies of 10Hz to 10MHz in steps of factor10. Thus, I chose to call it "10xHz clock generator" (with x being a number between 1 and 7). It can also be used to manually create clock impulses using a press button. The frequency is selected using two press buttons/swiches: S1

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...
