Atmel 89C2051 In-Circuit Programmer
This is a "beta release" schematic. Use at your own risk The idea is to add this circuitry to a board with already has ram at 2000 and an 82C55 I/O chip to provide ports A, B and C. Warning: not shown here is a memory mapping trick which is described below. You must figure out a way to provide the necessary memory mapping to make beta version 0. 00
This project is a combined temperature and humiditymeter. It is an improvement on my PIC-based humidity meter and my PIC and AVR thermometers. I use an ATmega164, which as lots of I/O and memory. The humidity sensor is a HS1101, made by Parallax (p/n 27920) and available from Digikey (27920-ND) for around US$10. The circuit for the humidity meter

AVR Color Clock
This page describes a color clock that displays the time using two RGB LEDs, one for hours and one for minutes, showing time by using the standard color coding used for components (with two additional colors as the standard color coding only has ten colors and twelve is needed). The time could have been shown more analogue by fading the colors but
Arduino AVR High-Voltage Serial Programmer
This Arduino sketch is useful for rescuing ATtiny microcontrollers rendered useless by incorrect fuse settings. It does this by putting the bricked tiny into high-voltage serial programming mode and writingthe fuses to safe values. The Arduino is connected to the tiny though 1k resistors and a 2N3904 transistor is used to switch 12 volts applied t

PCB exposure box Based on ATmega8 AVR microcontroller
I describe the procedure I followed to build the Box, the Lamp System and the Countdown System which is based on the AVR mega8 microcontroller. Four blacklight lamps, 15W each, emit radiation at the region of UVA, with a peak around 350nm where the thin surface above the copper of the photosensitive board, is. sensitive. The lamps are taken by...
Visual Basic & AVR RS232 interface
On this project we will control anAVR microcontroller (MCU) via Visual Basic 6. The applications of this circuit is countless. You can make, anything you want, that needs control from a Personal Computer (PC)or from anycircuit collects data from sensors. Finally, itsends these data to Visual Basic based software by using the RS232 port. You have...
communication with AVR microcontroller
The TRW-24G connector pins is too small (~1mm pin to pin). For that I order the adaptor PCB that is convert the small connector of RF module, to standard pin connector. The pin order of RF modules in schematic diagram is based on pin order of pin adaptor, andnot on pin order of the module`s connector. My circuit is constituted by 2x TRW-24G...
AVR ISP programmer In-System Programmer
Programmer in my "AVR software and technical Library - April 2003" CD-rom and decide to publish it. The reason was, that this programmer is very stable and works perfect with AVR Studio 4. I hadtested it before published it, with AT90s2313 and its worked fine! To work this programmer you must to connect acrystal 4MHz to slave device at theXTAL1...

Ridiculously Simple AVR AM Radio Transmitter
Create a rapid transmitter/receiver pair that anyone would have around their house. I decided that AM or FM radio would be good since everyone can receive that, and pondered how best to generate the necessary radio signal and modulate it appropriately. After a few LC oscillator designs, I thought about the RC oscillators built into most...
AVR Microcontrollers in Linux
A microcontroller is a single-chip computer. It has internal RAM, ROM, timers, counters, interrupt circuitry, I/O ports, analog comparators, serial USARTs, analog to digital converters, watchdog timers, and a RISC architecture. When you are using a microprocessor, you cannot program it alone. You need other components, like RAM, ROM, timers, etc.
An AVR microcontroller based Ethernet device
Ethernet has traditionally been a quite complex interface. All Ethernet chips until today had 100 pins or more, where difficult to find in small quantities and difficult to use from a small microcontroller with little memory. Microchip has changed the world with their new ENC28J60 Ethernet chip! This opens a whole world of completely new applicati

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...
